I started taking phentermine 37.5 one week ago and I haven't lost any weight yet. My food intake decreased and my energy level increased but still no weight loss. Does it usually start working after a certain amount of time?
Hello eboogie13. Yes its not uncommon not to lose any weight when beginning the drug. You might wait or not see any real result for some time. Phentermine is really a drug that works differently from one person to another. Some people lose say 25 pounds within a months time. Others a lot less say for example 15 pounds within the same period of time. Diet and exercise also play a role. Best of wishes and good health to you,pledge
