Reviews for Phendimetrazine to treat Obesity
"I've only taken this for a week. 35mg phendimetrazine twice a day and I don't feel anything at all. No extra energy, I'm still consuming as much coffee. In fact I have been sleeping even more since starting. It might curb my appetite a smidge if I take the tablet just in the right amount of time before a meal. Four-ish hours later though my hunger is back in full force. Usually have hunger pains then too for eating less when I ate when it mildly suppressed my appetite. No weird side effects except a chalky taste in my throat. This stuff has been pretty useless I follow up with my doctor later this week and I will be requesting something else."

"I lost weight in 2014 and kept it off until I got pregnant, I gained almost 40 lbs and it was hard to lose, I only lost 10lb on my own and wanted the doctor to give me a boost, I asked for Phentermine but he suggested Phendimetrazine would work better. NO!!! I gained weight, I ate right, worked out, didn't eat after 8 no sugars, no sodas, no nothing bad! For me it did not work. Now I am on Phentermine and I lost weight within the 1st week, I know its water weight but it is a start!"

"I started taking this on Feb 9, 2017. It is now April 8, 2017. Two months on this medicine I have lost 18 pounds with 11 pounds going in the first 4 weeks. At first I only took half what I was prescribed which is 2 pills three times a day. On the 4th day I was sooooo hungry I went ahead and ate a bunch of junk food, but it still wasn't what I normally ate. It has decreased my desire to eat everything I see all the time and all but killed my insatiable hunger. I have been overweight starting in 2001. I am barely 5 foot tall and weighing 209 pounds is just bad. I have thyroid disease and arthritis along with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Most days it is a chore to go from my bed to the chair downstairs. This is helping me."

"I started taking this drug about 2 months ago and I have lost about 30lbs, it seems I can tell it more in my cloths, they are to big for me now, which is a good thing, but I had to buy more clothes. The hardest thing more me is the dr. told me to eat every 4 hours."

"I just have to say taking Phendimetrazine was the only way I could lose weight. Obviously diet and walking 4 times a week for half hour. I didn't have side effects, except for dry mouth and a lot of energy, which was very good. Anyway I was with a physician-supervised weight-loss program but never I had a problem. I lost 91 pounds in five months. Simply..... amazing!"

"I have been on Phendimetrazine as well as a natural thyroid pill since July. I have lost a total of 35 lbs, but I have changed my diet dramatically. I do not eat any bad carbs. I have also completely cut out sugar, and only drink water. I do believe that I could've lost this weight with my diet change alone, because I have already done so in the past. Now on my 3rd month, I have noticed that I am very irritable. I have been having a lot of anxiety and depression. I find myself having difficulty breathing feeling as what I am assuming is a panic attack. I feel as though I cannot swallow at times. I also find myself overcome with extreme sadness and get mad and feel violent. Also feel as I am going a little insane. BE CAUTIOUS."

"I have been taking 105mg slow release of phendimetrazine, once a day for 3 months. I haven't experienced any bad side affects. It has curbed my wild cravings & making it possible to cut my caloric intake from 3500 a day to 1500 - 1700 a day. I don't really exercise, but I get up & move & leave the house, whereas before I didn't move off the bed or couch & didn't leave the house but once a week My only problem is, I have only lost 3 pounds. I don't drink sodas, I use sugarless foods & try not to eat any bad carbs. I am basically eating meat (beef, chicken & lean pork), yogurt, green veggies & a protein drink with a banana & blueberries. I am very depressed over this. I used to eat cookies, cakes & all kinds of bad snacks, now I don't."

"I have been on PhenD since Tuesday, August 30th. It was not prescribed by my primary care physician. I decided to see a weightloss clinic and stick to a specialized plan. Originally, the physician wanted to place me on Contrave but I quickly declined that option due to the severe nausea so many people experience so she decided to place me on PhenD. I am SO glad that she did. My starting weight was 278.6 and today (3 days later) I am at 271.0! 7.6 lbs gone already! I have been following a 1400 calorie OR LESS diet since Tuesday and I walked about a mile last night. I am amazed. Thankfully, only side effect I have experienced has been cotton mouth. I suggest this medication strongly."

"I'm 33 years old 5'5" and 164 lbs. This is the heaviest I've ever been. My weight keeps climbing and I keep justifying it by buying a larger size. I really enjoy Candy I was up to 4 bars per day not including the little single pieces in the Jolly Ranchers. I used to go to a weight loss clinic which gave me 105 mg it worked wonderfully. I would take 1 pill around 10:30 am and it would curb my appetite ALL day! For the first time I did Not Crave candy! They worked Great for me. However, It came at a high price. I was paying $50 per week. So this time I went to my primary Dr. and she was able to prescribe me the same thing and I spent $3.96 with my insurance . Awesome!!! It still works I've lost 6 lbs in 5 days. Love it!"

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "Took it for about two months (skipping doses on weekends and some weekdays due to extreme side effects), started having extreme difficulty breathing, anxiety attacks from not being able to breathe with such a tight chest. Also it made me ridiculously irritable, and mean all the time but I did lose 15 lbs on it. Most of the time I felt like I was literally going insane. Not sure it was worth it though."

"I began a weight loss program on August 29,2015 to date 01/31/2016 I am down 57 pounds and I feel great. This weight loss has really come from just eating healthier and taking a b12 vitamin in the am as well as after the first three hours of being awake a 30mg phentermine capsule. I have been kind of stuck for the last couple weeks and the kicker has been that even after eating a nice sized lunch salad I feel like I am starving. I went to the clinic on Friday and told them about being hungry in the middle of the day and they gave me a 35mg phendimetrazine to take around 1 or 2 every afternoon. I have not had any problems sleeping since they were prescribed and really haven't even had the dry mouth lately. I have started to lose again."

"So far so Great! I can't believe I found something that works for me! I'm 51 years old I have been over weight for 17 years! I was always able to control my weight before with weight watcher and Exercise but the pounds kept coming on! I got up to 250 and now I am down to 228 in 2 months!! What I can't believe is this is with no Exercise but I have Lots of energy! I do have some side effects with the biggest being insomnia so sometimes I'll skip a dose if I think I haven't been getting enough sleep and that helps some.. But the biggest part is the Energy and working all day without a nap or feeling tired! I don't want to go off it until I get to my goal weight how long can I stay on this medicine? I heard 3 months but that kinda scares me."

"I have been prescribed this medication since 5/12/15. I weighed in at 204 lbs & am expecting to weigh in at less than 150 lbs 11/23/15. I also take 1/2 a water pill first thing each morning, Bentyl every night & B vitamin every other night. All prescribed by the doctor, dispensed at 28 days. In addition to this, I follow a 1000 calorie eating plan, & do my best to move fast for 30 min each day. Self discipline is not easy, but paying for it holds me accountable. I have fibromyalgia, pancreatitis & a vomiting condition that started when I was 9 yo. I also have had several times throughout this last 6 mo when my back was out & I could hardly walk. I am thrilled with results & only had dry mouth as side effect. Now to build muscle!!"

"I'm mom of 5. My youngest Is 9 months.I've suffered weight gain the past 4 yrs. My weight has been 115/120lbs even after my 3 KI'd. Once the 4 and 5 came I have Plateaued at 150 . Can't drop these 30lbs. My Dr. Put me on adipex 37mg last yr went up 172lbs. I freaked out became depressed. Was 172 down to 137lbs. Then bam baby #5 was in the oven. In Feb 2015 I saw my doctor about 1 month after birth of #5 about starting adipex again because I I weighed in at 200lbs. She agreed. Went from 200lbs to 148 lbs. Now I'm back to 150. How depressing/frustrating. Seen the doctor yesterday and gain 3 lbs and she recommended Bontril. Is this a good pill? What is the average weight loss from it? Please explain the best effect. Thank you so much."

"I started taking 105 mg back in September and have lost close to 25lbs. I started at 210lb in June and lost 25lbs on my own and went to my weight loss Dr who put me on 105 mg a day. I know weigh about 163. I love love love this pill. I have almost no side effects except for dry mouth sometimes. I drink plenty of water and I now eat very clean. I workout 3 to 4x a week. Not too strenuous because of 2 herniated discs. I highly recommend these pills!!"

"The first 3 days I swear I felt so good I was not hungry, very little appetite and a lot of energy. But after that it all stopped and I went to back to how I felt before I started taking this pills. I don't know if I did something wrong? I feel really disappointed I seriously felt so motivated I was going to lose weight but I haven't lost anything"

"I am 56 years old and have been about 35 lbs overweight for about 15 years. I was diagnosed in February with Type 2 Diabetes. I was previously on Phentermine but did not have good results. My doc changed it to Phendametrazine and I am rarely hungry and have lots of energy and better work outs! I have lost 20 lbs. 15 more to go and I feel fantastic!"

"I first tried Bontril about 7 years ago when I went to a weight loss center. I lost 47 pounds and kept if off for about three years. I remember taking two pills 30 minutes before each meal. 354mg tabs and I was told not to take my last dose after 4pm due to it will keep you from sleeping. I also followed a high protein diet. I was like 190 pounds then and I think I got down to 147. but over the years I've gained weight, had a baby and gained more weight. I'm now 235 pounds and started taking bontril a week ago and I've lost 4 pounds in a week, I was told to take 1 pill a hour before meals, I've increased to 2 pills before breakfast and 2 before lunch and 1 in the evening and I have no appetite I have to make myself eat. I hope this continue"

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "I only took Bontril 105mg for 2 months. I started out at 250lbs!!! I went to buy New clothes and was in a size 18, so depressing! I started out on Bontril 35mg, that did nothing for me so they bumped it up. I did stop drinking cold drinks, and only water. I did not even drink tea. I ate a high protein diet, beef jerky, cheese, and yogurt. They told me 1200 calories but that felt impossible! I did exercise the first month but slacked in the second. I lost 50 pounds total in those 2 months. There after I did not gain my appetite back and got all the way down to 162 pounds. This medicine is absolutely amazing! Its been over 2 years and I just starting gaining some of the weight back due to the depo shot, I will definalty be going back to Bont"

"In 2008, I took phendimetrazine and along with diet and moderate exercise I lost 40 lbs in 3.5 months. The only side effect I had was occasional constipation when I didn't drink enough water. I didn't feel "the energy boost" like I was told I would. I loved it then! After gaining back 15lb (gained weight with pregnancy) and realizing my baby is now close to 3, it's time to get back into gear. Tried diet and exercise by itself with minimal results so I resorted to finding a weight loss clinic. I've been on the extended release for 5 days and it seems to be different. It doesn't seem to suppress my hunger like the first time around. I am still taking it though, I will weigh in on Oct. 16 so hopefully I will see results!"
