My doctor and i talked about starting me on Adipex to help me shed the weight i had gain when i went through a really depressed stage in my life. I have no problem keeping my weight the same because i am active enough for it to remain steady. However, i just cant seem to get the weight off to a healthy weight to keep it there. So he prescribed it to me. I have now been on Adipex for 8 days and lost 3lbs and my aunt (who is also using Adipex herself) who recomended Adipex to me said in 8 days i should have lost more then 3lbs that the first two weeks in when the most weight loss occurs. The Dr, has me one the dosage of 1 full pill and its 37.5 mg. When she started she was only taking half of a pill is that the problem, or am i takeing the full pill because im younger then her and she should start slow. (shes 30 yrs old i'm 18 yrs old.) I hope to hear from someone who can clear up my few questions. Thank you.
No, your dose is ok. If you are losing more then 3 lbs, its water weight. You being younger probably don't have much. If you lose weight too fast, its hard to keep it off. Losing slower means your body is adjusting and you're losing fat weight. Usually they say 2 lbs a week is good.
