I started 15 months ago on Phentermine. I originally weighed 312lbs and had gastric bypass surgery 3/98. I lost 162lbs and felt great.Over the past 8 years,I managed to put 50lbs back on.Not hard to do when your eating junk. The mg were increased after a few months to 30mg and then to 37.5.To date I have lost 50lbs but It worries me to see so much weight loss in so little time from some of you. I am on a food plan that my doctor set up for me. She gave me a list of great foods, good foods and if your going to eat these foods, dont do it often.LOL. I want to keep it off and be able to eat like a real person.I know if I dont eat because I want to lose it fast, for me,I will gain it back.I eat 5-6 meals a day and it works.

Review by Stoood:

I was just prescribed Phentermine by my doctor. I will start tomorrow. I'm 33 and 5 foot tall weight 197 lbs. I have had 2 children in the last 3 years and this second one I had 4 months ago, well the weight just won't come off. I do weight watchers and it worked the first round, this one...not so much. So I will do both, I take a lot of walks during the day at work but at home it's mommy mode and I barely get a minute to myself so exercising is tough. I know excuses excuses but it's true haha. I'm excited to get back to my weight at 26 which was 127, my goal is to be 130...or just comfortable in my clothes and looking good in the mirror. I hope to see results, for me, my future and my children. I want to be a active mom!

I started phen on 4\22\2015 with a starting weight of 226, I am a 5'8 female with PCOS trying to loose weight for health and personal issues. As of 4\28\2015 my weight is now 214. Honestly I am not sure if it's the pills doing or the combination of eating better,(totally cutting out carbs ,sugars) and exercising 3 days to 1 day off. But it's working and I'm happy with the results The only thing I have noticed is dry mouth and heart palpitations. But I notice when I work out after taking the pill I don't notice them. I have been experiencing hunger pains as well. I'm only on the 15mg dose so maybe that's why it doesn't curb my appetite like it's supposed to. Overall I'm pleased and will continue to loose weight. End goal, 140

I started on 3/27/15. My weight was 207. On 4/9/15 my first weigh in, I weighed 198. My second weigh in on 4/23/15, I weighed 193. These pills are working for me. I have lost a total of 14 lbs so far. I can fit into clothes that I haven't worn in at least 2 yrs. My only side effect is dry mouth at times. I will continue with this as long as I can. Will post my next weight loss in 2 weeks.

Began Pentermine on 4/21, today is 4/27 and I'm down 9.5lbs. No hungry pains and I haven't eaten since 6pm on 4/20 as part of a fast to kick off what will later be a 600 calorie a day diet. Beginning weight was 228.2 today's weight is 218.7. I'm going to try and go one last day on the fast, I've been running 3 miles every other day. Drink plenty of water. Goal weight 175.

My initial weigh in was 175.0lbs and I am 5' 7". I have been on oral steroids for a herniated disc for almost a year. Then new scans revealed two herniated disc, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease that now I am having steroid injections. Well with all of these steroids I have put on a hefty 35lbs. I was prescribed Phentermine 37.5mg for three months on 4/20/15. I began taking them on 4/21/15 and with a combination of no appetite, watching what I do eat, exercising... I have lost 5.5lbs in five days! I can't wait to get my old self back! Hope everyone is doing just as well!

My initial Dr appt was on February 23, 2015. I was at exactly 250 lbs., 5'2", 28 years old and have a 6 year old son. In the month of March, I lost an amazing 12 lbs., in the first 3 weeks!!! I didn't have the finances the following month and a half, but I went back yesterday (4-24-15). All in all, it works. My first month I was prescribed one 37.5MG tablet a day. With this being my "2nd" month with no significant weight loss (bc of my 7 weeks of no meds), I am now prescribed 1&1/2, 37.5MG tablets a day. One tablet when I wake up, half of a tablet 5 hrs after that. Will check back with results!! My side effects-dry mouth, some sleeplessness, occasional agitation (very seldom), amazing weight loss!!!!!

I started Phentermine 37.5mg on 4/16/2015. Starting weight 209, I weighed myself today 4/25/2015 196.8, lost 12.2 . To be honest nothing in life is easy, you have to put in the work.I workout 6 days a week,eating right as well. I don't feel any different however am aware of how am going about losing weight not depending on the pills only, rather workingout and eating healthy for a lifestyle change.

I'm an 18yr old female, I used to weigh 115lbs and absolutely loved my body and and then over the past year had some stressful things happen and I gained 35 pounds. Tomorrow will be one week since I started phentermine, I love it so far. I could count all of the food I've eaten on one hand since I started and I used to go from eating out at least once a day sometimes up to three times a day and now I have no desire. If someone offered to take me to my favorite restaurant for free I would turn it down because I literally have no appetite. Only bad thing is without eating I feel a little dizzy and out of energy sometimes but it's so worth the energy boost in the morning and loss of appetite.

Adipex-P (phentermine): I started Adipex 4/16 exactly 6 days ago. I started at 181lbs I am now down to 176.4lbs. I have had occasional headaches and dry mouth, but as long as I keep losing this weight I need to lose I can deal with it. My goal is to lose all my pregnancy weight I put on with my second baby. 28 more pounds to go!!

I'm 5'5 starting weight 189 I started taking 37.5mg on 04/18 starting with half and alternating with whole and half pills each day. Serious dry mouth! But it really works I'm not hungry, I've been eating smaller and much much less. Snacking has was an issue for me but haven't touched cookies or snacks!!! I've been drinking water only no desire for juice or soda The first two days I experienced headaches I believe were the lack of food/nutrients. But Monday and Tuesday I've been taking women's multi-vitamins 1hr 1/2 to 2hrs before pill and headaches have gone. Already a night owl so this didn't help. But gives tremendous energy, so much so I don't even yawn throughout the day. I'm going to weigh myself Saturday to see what I've loss.

I went to the doctor because I felt that for my height which is 5'7, 184 pounds I was overweight. I started the pill 4-13-15 at 184lbs today 4-21-15 I'm at 175lbs. This pill really works. I'll check back in at the end of the week to tell more results.

Review by Tra2594 (taken for less than 1 month):

I gained a lot of weight after being on pain medicines. I mean ALOT, I am down 40 but have 38 pounds to go, my MD put me on phentermine and its great, but the whole 37.5mg is very strong. I take half everyday since Sunday, he didn't give me a diet to go with it. I am wondering if anyone else got a diet plan? I am looking forward to losing this last remaining weight before my 44 bday ( July 2015).

I highly recommend this product from your doctor. My dr lost over 200 pounds and shows everyone his results when he puts you on the pill. My life has changed alot so far. I was pushing 220lbs and now day 6 im at 207lbs. I have so much energy to play with my 2 year old son. And I'm finally able to start running again like I used to. Before I hated exercising. I still do but its worth extra motivation now after seeing my own results.

Adipex-P (phentermine): I took Adipex for the past 3 months as prescribed. I weighed 190 lbs. with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. The first month I loss 20 lbs. The 2nd month 4 lbs and 3rd month 4 lbs. I played volleyball 2x a week with helped. I could have loss more but I hate exercising if it's not volleyball. My 1st month the insomnia was nightly. The dry mouth was all the time. Try chewing gum. I drank more water than I'm used to but it was good for me. Constipation was a problem. Try fibre pills or Phillips or stool softener for constipation. Lots of energy. 2nd month, sleep was better. I felt great because I could feel those 20 lbs. off and my clothes were so baggy. Lots of energy. I slightly started to want to eat. 3rd month. Total loss= 28 lbs.

The list of diets and health eating approches that I have tried are in the hundreds! No exaggeration! I started the tablets on 4/14/15 at 267.2. Today 4/19/15 my weigh is 258!!!! I'm shocked and pleased with the results. Follow healthy eating guidelines focusing on portion size and drink plenty of water. The first two days. I took a 1/2 of tablet. The rest of the week I took a 1/2 30 minutes after breakfast and a 1/2 of tablet 30 minutes after lunch . I did not eat after 7.

I started taking Phentermine on 2/20/15. My weight was 418.5. As of 4/9/15 My weight dropped to 396.5. 22 lbs down! I can't express my happiness. I can't say that I have been absolutely strict and following the plan my doctor set forth but nevertheless with the changes I have made I am seeing results. I think out of the entire 7 weeks I exercised 1 full week. Other than that I have basically just been making changes in my eating habits leaving bread, pasta, and sugar completely alone. My goal is to lose 100 lbs by the end of 2015 and I really do believe that Phentermine will help me accomplish that! My experience with the drug has been terrible dry mouth and sometimes spurts of energy. Good luck to everyone.

So, I am on day 3. I started my weight at 167 and am 5ft 5in. I am down to 165. Thats a 2 pound drop in 3 days. I like to add, that the majority of the large weight loss at first is not fat... It's water weight. It's usually the first to go on any diet. As for the phentermine, I feel great. No major side effects. I'm not anxious, I'm not moody, and my heart is not racing. I'm on 37.5 mg. I'm also getting the lipoplex shot with B12. I am on a 1300 calorie a day diet (no sugars), and am exercising by walking 3 1/2 miles a day.... So far, my only complaint is sleep... I doze off, wake up, doze off etc. Last night I took melatonin and it helped a lot! Doc said it was okay to take. Look forward to seeing my results in 30 days.

I took the first pill today (4/17/15) and within 30 minutes I felt as if I just walked out of an Olympic sized pool that I've been walking in my whole life. I'm super alert and my hearing even perked up. Wow! I generally don't like taking meds that make me "feel" different but this is a reaction I can appreciate. I feel like I'm plugged in right now. Like my metabolism switch was turned back to "teen"! I'm looking forwards to the weight loss and weening off the med and maintaining better eating habits and exercise...for life.

I started taking Phentermine on 4/1/2015. I am a 5"5' female, 36 years old and I weighed 220 lbs. Having 2 kids back to back really added a lot of weight in a really short amount of time and I was at a loss as to what to do. I tried every diet I could think of but always ended up failing because lets face it, I dont have time to add another thing to my plate. I am a wife, a mother of 2 small kids, a student and I work full time. Not only has Phentermine given me the energy I need to keep up with my little ones, but I am maintaining school, work and home duties with no problem - I also exercise every day and eat 3 small meals a day. As of 4/15/2015, I have lost 10 pounds! I love it so far!

So I've recently started taking phentermine 37.5mg on 4/13/15 and today makes my 3rd day and so far I'm loving it!! It gives me the energy I need to start my day without having drink coffee which has so much calories! I weighed myself on monday I was at 186 and now I'm 183. I love how I don't have an appetite for food or if I do eat I just take a few bites and I'm full. I haven't experienced any of the side effects except just a slight headache which is normal to me.
