For one thing you're supposed to take it before meals.
Dear P: You mentioned you are taking 37.5 TWICE a day? If this is so, it sounds like you may be overusing this drug. It is a (drug) mad will not work if your body feels it is abusing it. Individuals that drink caffeine have the same results and need more and more of it to feel the effects. If this is your case, please discontinue immediate and consult your physician.
If you are splitting the 37.5 into two doses and not experiencing weight loss. I too am going through this. I will keep my eye on this post as we may be able to help each other out. I have started an intake log and thinking maybe some foods have too much sodium content, thus weight may be loosing, but inflammation in the body may be absorbing the sodium. There are many factors, I know. If you are a (gym) type individual & are experimenting with supplements, protein powders, etc, they may be interacting with the drug.
TRY just eating PURE natural foods. Stay away from gatorade, etc, that you see gym rats consuming. Hope this helps. I look forward to other comments and suggestions. THANK YOU!
Are you sure its the right stuff? Like they said above, you shouldn't be taking 2 a day... did you get it from your doctor? You have to be sure yo have a legit prescription, there are so many websites that sell fake phentermine so you have to be careful!
How long does it take to get in your system for weight loss?
Same here! 2 weeks and I think I've GAINED 2 LBS!! Upped my exercise, watching my calories. Could it REALLY be the coffee? I can't give up my coffee!!
I drink coffee every day, as a night shift nurse there is coffee in my blood.
I have been using Adipex 37.5 for 6 weeks and am down 20lbs.
There is no secret.
I eat approx 14-1600 calories a day, drink plenty of water and don’t really exercise as my job is work out enough.
As my Dr and nutritionist in their wisdom put it correctly you need to eat to lose.
Prior to Adipex I was eating about 1200calories a day.
1200 is not enough on Adipex. Your body will store all the food you give it because you are burning with out realizing.
If you eat the bare minimum on meds once off you will regain.
At 15-600 now, when I am fully weaned off in about three months I can reduce my calories to 12-1300 and my body will be ok with it
Enjoy your coffee... I sure do
I drink a lot, and I mean a lot of coffee each day. During the first month I lost 30lbs just talking 37.5mg in the morning and limiting calories to 1200-1500. During the second month I lost another 20lbs. I took 2 months off and started it again and lost another 10lbs.
I’ve been taking it since July and lost over 100 pounds. I drastically changed my diet (cut out a lot sugar and fatty foods), cut out alcoholic beverages (which was a good thing for me anyway lol), increased my gym/exercise time (30 minutes to 60 minutes and I also talk long steady paced walks), count calories and I didn’t starve myself (eating the right foods is CRUCIAL). I started off with the 37.5 and went down to just half a pill a day. It works but you have to make some serious lifestyle changes (not saying that no one here hasn’t). At the same time though, everyone’s body is not the same and what may work for one person, may not necessarily work for the next. In any case, DON’T give up, you can do it! I went from 286 to 184 in 6 months.
I have been on this for almost a month and a half now the first month I was down 21 lbs then so far this month I was down twelve but got on scale today and was up 4 lbs been working out lifting weights and treadmill five days a week and work full-time and cut myself down to 12 to 1500 calories aday don't know what else I can do
I started phemtermine 5 weeks ago
1st week 30 mg capsules and ate all the nutritionist said too
I lose 8 my first week the next month only lost 3 pounds on 37.5 tablets
So Saturday he put me back on capsules
30 in am 30 in afternoon I am so sick to my stomach I stuck to the diet do light exercise and lots of water I’m not sure if the capsule is different from tablet but on tablet I was starving by one all night
I've been using this medication for about 3 weeks and have lost 15 lbs I'm not sure what you're doing wrong but it's something. If you haven't changed your diet and you haven't at least gotten up to do things and stay busy during the day then that's why. It's not a miracle drug but it helps ALOT. I've had two back surgerys and am in a nightmarish amount of pain most days, however, I fight through this and get things done. I started this medication and diet in order to safely have another diet and am committed. That's what it's all about. Commitment and you CAN do it trust me.
