On 3 days, haven't noticed any difference in appetite. Going to ask for an increase in mg. I'm on 15mg with 900 calorie diet. But I'm so hungry.

Started phentermine 5 days ago. No side effects except for dry mouth and feeling tired. No energy or insomnia so far. I'm on a strict diet as well. No exercise. I've lost a total of 6.8lbs! I'll update later with my progress.

I've been taking phentermine for 2 months and I have lost 22 pounds. I haven't exercised just my normal active life as a mother and student. The only side effect I've had is severely dry mouth and no appetite. I literally force myself to eat something

I start phentermine today. Read almost all reviews and I'm excited to start taking it. Seems like it has everything I need. I will try it and come back in a month and let you all know how it has worked for me.

Review by Wendca:

I started medication 4 weeks ago. The first week I was only taking half a pill. Second week went up to a whole pill. I have side effects of dry mouth, unable to sleep more than 5 hours and some constipation. With all this being said so far I have found positives of losing 11 lbs, watching what I eat, drinking more water and doing portion control. I have back and knee issues so I am unable to exercise so the weight loss will assist me so I can be active in the future. I look forward to starting another month of the medication and losing another 11. My dr. Did say she will only prescribe for 3 months so I will continue to monitor and take what I have learned and implement it in my future to continue with the 60 lbs I need to lose:)

I started the medication Jan 9th 2015 at 247 today is Jan 31st and I'm down 10 lbs. I'm happy with the weight loss but if my doctor would up me to whole pill I'd probably really lose weight. I'll see him on the 9th of February and I'm sure he'll increase my dosage. So far I haven't suffered any of the side effects previously mentioned. Also per my doctor if you suffer headaches it means you're not eating enough.

I'm a 18 year old female, my entire life I've always been overweight and I wasn't able to lose it, it didn't bother me until I gained 40 pounds in less than a year due to being on birth control. I went from 175 lbs to 215, that's when being overweight caught up to me. I wasn't noticing how much the way I looked changed. Until I went clothes shopping and I couldn't fit into a size 16. That was when I went to my doctor and he recommended Phentermine, It has been almost 3 months and so far I've seen nothing but positive results, I lost 31 ponds so far and still going! I bought a size 13 mini skirt, it was too wide! I haven't fit into a size 11 since I was 15. I strongly recommend it, because of it I smile every time I look in the mirror now.

I started phentermine right before thanksgiving. I am 5"2' and starting weight was 184lbs. It made me not hungry at all. I constantly drank water and ate very lightly. No insomnia first month. I lost 17 pounds. Second month I had to take 3 days off because of the insomnia. If I feel I can't sleep I will skip a day or two. Still only drinking water and eating lightly. No exercise at all and today I weigh 156lbs. Total loss of 28lbs in two months. This month I plan to add exercise to drop more weight. Love Phentermine!

Adipex-P (phentermine): My last post was in February 2014. To sum up my experience: starting weight: 161.4, height 5'3. Received two total bottles of 37.5mg pills, which lasted me from February '14 to June '14. I would halve pills, skip days, etc if I felt the need, so these lasted quite awhile. My lowest weight once all was said and done: 141.2 on June 20th, 20.2 lbs lost. Today, Jan 30 2015, I weigh 146.2. I am happy that in 7 months time I've only managed to gain 5 lbs (AND after the holidays thank you very much!). This pill is great, but it's not a miracle. It also won't last forever as you can only have 3 refills a year if you meet the BMI requirement for medical weight loss. Taught me portion control

Adipex-P (phentermine): I loved the product! I started June 1, 2014 to August 2014. IN 2 MONTHS I HAD LOST 30 LBS! I was doing Zumba 3 times a week and had a personal trainer to help tone my body with my new found ENERGY. The Personal Trainer was a waste because Adipex with Zumba was doing a tremendous job all on its own. I wasn't craving sweets thanks to Adipex. I cut out fast foods, carbs, and late night eating. Plus I drank anywhere from 1/2 to a gallon A DAY! However, the medicine still made me constipated. I started at 244 and got down to 209lbs. I stopped using it for about 5 months AND THE WEIGHT STAYED OFF, while not eating so healthy.

I have to start off with saying I'm so pumped up about losing this weight. I started taking phentermine Jan 17th with a starting weight of 199.1 and now two days later Jan 19th I weigh 195.2. I feel a little buzzy maybe an hour after I take it but tend to get hungrier at night. I'm going to start taking it later in the day so it can hold me over until the end of the day

Adipex-P (phentermine): I am 20 years old and I have always had problems with weight loss since I was in middle school. I went to the doctor and was prescribed Adipex. I have been on a low carb diet and I have been on Adipex for 9 days now and have lost 6 pounds so far. I am very happy with the results right now and I'm hoping to keep at it and try to reach my goal weight! I am 5'4 and before I started the diet I weighed in at 192lbs and so far I am down to 186lbs. My goal weight is 145 to 150lbs!

This my second round with Phentermine. I tried it a couple of years ago and lost 20 pounds and have kept it off. I decided I needed to lose 20 more, so I'm back on it as of yesterday. I'm already down 2 pounds! My appetite is virtually gone! I feel really good and have so much energy! The only down side is insomnia, but I can live with that as long as I'm getting great results!

Adipex-P (phentermine): I would recommended this diet pill to anyone, it works great and the energy boost allows you to do your daily activities with no drained feeling after. I would advise a daily routine, sit ups, push ups, walking, etc. Of some type. I'm a mother of 2 boys, 4yr & 3 1\2 month old, my stomach has stretched a bit, I was on it after my first son and went from 176 and dropped to 125 and was only on it for 2months, the weight stayed off til my 2nd pregnancy, naturally I gained so I'm now on it again, but due to more stretching my muscles are weaker in my abdomen, if you rely solely on the pill you will loose weight and appear thinner but you will have saggy ecsess skin, you must tighten as you shrink. Chances increase due to rapid weight loss.

Review by Yesssss1 (taken for less than 1 month):

I'm back again Now starting my 3rd week. My second week wasn't as good as it shouldve been, because I went out of town and I ate terribly. Not to mention I probably took phetermine maybe twice within 6 days. Somehow, I still lost 3 lbs in fat, but gained 2 lbs in water weight. Which is why I felt so depressed, because I was bloated from gaining the water weight. I was told that because I drank alcohol over my vacation and didn't take my phetermine as much (which didn't make me want to drink as much water) it made me more dehydrated, which made me retain more water in my body. Now I'm taking my phetermine like usual again and I'm drinking water like crazy and going to the bathroom again like I was the first week

Adipex-P (phentermine): Started taking Adipex and I was at my highest weight ever. I was at 218lb. I currently am down 42lbs and now sitting at a weight of 176lb. Adipex really does help curb your appetite. Only down fall I've found was that the dry mouth can be a tad irritating at times. I drink on a daily basis probably around 2-3 gallons of water before I started taking Adipex and now with this medication I am almost doubling my water intake just because no matter what for me my mouth is always dry. It is a side effect that I am willing to live with though with the type of results I am getting. I have also lost 20 inches off my entire body since the process has started. I do go to the gym 4 days a week and I do cardio and weights as well.
