"This is my 3rd day on Phentermine 37.5. I take a half pill in the morning before breakfast and then the other half b/w 1&2. I have still experienced hunger around 12 as if I haven't ate anything at all. But when I do eat something I am full pretty quickly. My starting weight is 270. I am 5'7 and 22 year old female. I will only be on this for 2 months so I'm hoping for good results along with exercise and healthy eating"

"I started Phentermine 37.5 mg on 7/10/15. I was 230 lbs. It's now 7/30/15, and I've lost 17 lbs in 20 days!!! I have not exercised at all. I only drink water or milk. Cut out all sugar and I don't even miss it. This pill really kills my appetite. When I do eat, it's always something healthy, but very small portions. I'm not hungry at all. I still have about 60 lbs to lose. I hope it keeps going this easily."

"I started taking Phentermine 37.5, one week ago today and already lost eight pounds. I cannot believe that there is something out there that helps with weight loss. I do experience some dry mouth and falling asleep can sometimes be difficult, but other than that I love it!"

130lbs down! July 23, 2015

8 users found this comment helpful. Did you?   Yes   No Report as inappropriate

"Started July 11th, 2015- 5'5'' tall and 197lbs. Today is July 21st, 2015 and I weighed in at the gym this morning at 186.7- so slightly over 10lbs in 11days. First few days I had extra energy. The first full week I was exhausted and did not go to the gym. I had really lowered my caloric intake and cut out all extra sugars, breaded carbs and dairy...I ate a little more over the past weekend and this morning I finally felt up to exercising. I still feel tired, but fall asleep for an hour after work and then am ready for bed by 10p. I am not super hungry, but still try to avoid being around my favorite "junky" foods because I overeat just because it's in front of me... I take 1 30mg pill daily and got a b12 shot, which I can repeat 1x month."

"I started Phentermine 7-11-15. I have been at a stalled weight for the past year and a half and then all of a sudden gained 15lbs in a week along with other symptoms I was having. Went to the doc and did blood tests, everything came back healthy. I'm 6'1 female and weighed 203. I weighed myself this morning on 7-20-15 and am at 193lbs. The side effects I have is dry mouth and helps drinking a lot of water and chewing gum. Doctor put me on this for 3 months to jump start my metabolism again. So I'm hoping once I'm done the weight stays off. I work out 5 days a week and do cardio 4days and eat 4-5 small meals a day. Nothing else worked. I tried lots of different fat burners and NOTHING helped til I got on phentermine."

I'm to lose 4 lbs. this month and I have 2 weeks left before I go back. Any ideas what I need to do to get this going again? I take a half of Phentermine in the morning and a half in the afternoon due to having tightness in my chest the first month."

"Im a 54 year old male, 5 11" 300 lbs. Been taking it for 3 months; lost 30 lbs. Have lots of energy for yard work and exercise. I was a compulsive eater, but now I can walk by donuts with no pain. made progress eating better and less. I Take it first thing with water, then don't eat till late afternoon. Seems to reduce my desire to eat. Makes me appreciate lighter foods over heavy foods. I have more physical and mental energy. Only negative is makes it a little harder to sleep. Its actually possible, some day I will not be the fattest guy I know."

"This medication really does work. I am on my second round of Adipex (generic). The first time I took it I was 297pounds. I lost 30 pounds in 12 weeks with no exercise at all. I ate what I wanted although I did not have much of an appetite at all. I ate 3 small meals and two snacks daily. I did make sure to drink at least 6 glasses of water per day and I drank a protein drink in the morning. My energy level was great. However, when it was time to be off of the medication, some of the weight came back. It is important to exercise and reduce calories while not on the drug in order to maintain the weight loss. My suggestion would be to start healthier habits while on the medication. It will help in the long run."

"I'm praying I have similar success to some of these stories I've read. I just started Phentermine 37.5 mg today, 7/10/15. I'm 44, 5'2" and 229 lbs. So far, I feel great today. A little bit revved up, but not too bad. Absolutely no hunger at all. Very thirsty - but that's a good reason to slam water instead of soda. I'm giving up all sugary foods and drinks. I want to get back to my comfortable weight of 130-140, and then see where it goes from there. FINGERS CROSSED! I will update more in a couple days. Good luck to all!"

Fastin (phentermine): "I started taking this pill when I was 218lbs and I now weight 135 lbs! I had thyroid issues too that originally caused the weight. But once managed I still had a hard time getting the weight off. This pill literally changed my life! Yes it does speed up your heart, my dr did an ekg before hand to make sure it was safe to take. But the results are beyond worth it. And if you take it with water or juice and a banana, you'll be good to go until dinner time! It took roughly 6 months tops to lose the weight, and I've maintained the weight loss for about 3 years now. I still fluctuate a little due to my thyroid. But I just start back on it if I need to lose again."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I went on 4/28/15 and as shocked when I weighed in at 189, I'm 5'7". My walking around weight is typically around 170-175. I started Adipex and went back in June for my check up, I'm down to 174 with steel toes and long sleeve. I was told to avoid the generic and only Adipex, with a coupon it is $50. The energy boost is great, not too much...just don't take one after about 4 or 5 pm. Now, the interesting part...My weight gain was due to consuming alcohol on an almost daily basis...the Adipex supressed my appetite AND supressed my desire to consume alcohol. I can attribute this to the supression effects of the drug and the dry mouth gives you the desire to drink water or a sports drink."

"OK ladies (and gentleman) I cannot believe this I LOST 13LBS IN 5 days. I started When 6-29-15 weighing 269.. I went to the doctor 7-3-15 and weighed 256 (no way).. Im still in shock.. My husband is so scared because he never seen anything like it. I completely changed the way I eat.. I only eat grilled or baked foods, fruits and lots of water with lemon (my skin is now amazing). I eliminated everything that's not clean. I removed fast food, soda, salts, sweets basically everything that was killing me slowly. The appetite suppression is amazing and allows me to make better and healthier decisions.. I have had side effects but they are starting to subside. I do not own the a scale but my clothes are getting very lose."

"I started taking phentermine, and it did give me headaches and shaking, but I found if I break the pill in half, I don't have the bad side effects. I also have lost about 17 lbs. In the last 30 days. So it is working went from 201 to 184. I wish everyone the best of luck. BTW I did not change my diet or exercise plan. My doctor will only put me on this for 21 days. Because after that time it stops working. So I take a half a pill everyday every other month. I have lost about 50 lbs altogether on this in the last 6 months doing it this way."

"I have tried diet after diet, every fab out there. The older I have gotten the harder it has become to take it off. My energy level had become zero and it was a struggle to get through a work day and cook dinner at night much less go to a gym and work out. Over the last five years or so I have slowly put on the weight, I have had to have a hysterectomy which I'm sure didn't help, but then I was headed in the same direction before it. I had asked my doctor for help, but they always told me to exercise more. But it got to a point where no matter how much I exercised or starved myself I could not take the weight off. Finally found a dr to prescribe me phentermine 30, been on it 5 1/2 weeks and have lost 25 lbs, energy level is great "

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I started taking adipex 6/30 and it's now 7/4. My weight has not changed. I'm having side effects like chest pain, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue -no energy at all. I still pushed myself to workout and eat right. My weight at weight loss clinic was 228 but when I got on scale at public it said 232. Because of pills serious side effects I have to stop taking pills. Best of luck to you all."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "After being disgusted with my constant weight gain, I decided to try the Real Adipex-P and not the generic version of it. The generic gave me really bad mood swings and made my heart flutter a lot but the Real brand has worked totally different feeling. I began on June 9th at my all time high weight of 345.4. I have found that once I chose to eat clean and refrain from beef,pork, sodas, and anything white; I got a better outcome. I have to say that we are all different and any weight loss is a plus. I am not boasting but I am happy to report that I weighed in today and I weighed 313.6!! That's a little over 30 pounds in 5 days shy of a month. Ya'll, we can do this. We must not give up and stop trying! I am striving for 150 pounds."
