For Weight Loss: "I've been taking Phentermine (generic of adipex) for 6 weeks now & it's worked very well for me. The first 2 days it gave me super energy & my mind was in overdrive but in the days since, it's been just enough to give me that extra boost to walk/exercise regularly & do things I've been putting off. I have had no change in mood or increased anxiety & in my opinion, going without food is likely what causes some to experience irritability. My metabolism is high because it keeps my heart rate up (pulse monitored on fitbit). I was 246 lbs & now down to 218lb. This medicine is very effective at curbing appetite. The only negative side effect I've had is mild constipation but it's probably due to my diet, not the medication. Originally my Dr was only going to allow me to take for 2 months but due to my results & the fact that the medicine hasn't lost potency on me as of now, he extended my rx 2 more months. I'm very satisfied with how this medicine has worked."

For Weight Loss: "I took this drug once 6 1/2 years ago and lost 20 pounds. I managed to keep it off for about 5 years and then stopped paying attention and gained it back. My doctor has started me back on it again for 30 days. The first time I had lots of side effects like bad headaches and dry mouth. This time I have no side effects but I now know to drink a crazy amount of water. Both times it took a few days to start working. I still feel hungry at meal times but I can eat a very small amount of food and be full. I eat carbs in very small amounts like 1/4 c rice or potatoes or 1/2 slice whole grain bread for fiber. I stay under 40 carbs a day. I do not eat pasta or desserts. I do have to cut back on the food but use the drug for support. I never take the drug after 3:00 pm or it will keep me up all night. I try to wait as long as possible in the morning to take it so I get the effect through dinner. I shoot for 10:00 am. It's hard to get enough water when taking this drug so drink!"

For Obesity: "Was prescribed this medication by a weight loss specialist MD. The idea was to help control appetite while increasing energy levels and gradually losing weight as to keep it off. Was taking it once a day for up to 3 months then off for a few months then start up again. Results were no decrease in hunger or appetite at all, no increase in energy levels, no weight loss period. As a matter of fact I actually gained weight. It was like taking a placebo but more expensive."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Started Adipex 9/10/18. Female - 5’9 SW 202 lbs. I have always been thinner until steroids for arthritis over the years caused weight gain. Goal is 160 lbs. My Monthly check up at Dr. 10/6 weighed in 191 lbs. Today 188 lbs. I know my diet is under what I should have. Usually 700-900 calories a day. Light exercise. More energetic. Curbed appetite. No eating after 5:30 supper, no sweets, chicken only for fast food ( no fries). If I want a mid day snack, it’s an apple with peanut butter. One cheat day, up to 1400 calories, water only. Have dry mouth and insomnia. Faster heartbeat when active. No rage feelings. Actually great mood because of the energy and feeling proud of myself for losing. I will gain a little back as I will have to add more calories into my diet, but have the mind set to eat healthier and hopefully losing the weight, I will be more energetic when off Adipex. Good luck to all."

For Weight Loss: "Started this over a month ago and initially lost 6 pounds. Can’t say I’m very happy with it as I expected a little more from it. I’ve gained some back and am still on it. You cannot mess up while on it that’s for sure. You do feel fuller faster, and carbs HAVE to be cut almost completely out. I don’t eat much anyway and wasn’t expecting to have to cut down even more than I already have. I usually only eat 1 to 2 meals if that every day. So I’m wondering if there is anything better out there???"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I'm 44 years old weight today is 322lb. I have had success with this before (several years ago) I can't remember exactly how much but at least 20lbs in 2 months, I also weighed less then. I have tried to take this at least 2 other times since but have stopped only a few days in because of the headaches. I'm about to give it a try again because I know it helps and hopefully this time the headaches won't be so bad. Wish me luck."

For Weight Loss: "SW 183 (oct 1st) GW 145 CW 178 (oct 3rd) I’m 5’6” 25 years old. Literally a miracle pill, I only take half of the 37.5 in the morning and I am barely hungry. I also work out everyday, which I’ve always done and in the past haven’t really lost weight at all. I almost have to force myself to eat, but I’ll force myself to eat some kind of fruit or vegetable. Only thing is I had anxiety the first time I took it, so I’ve been taking 5htp in the morning and at night and I’ve been better. Idk if it’s due to the 5htp or if my body just got used to the pill. Can’t complain about 5 pounds down on my third day!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I have taken this medication for one month, I lost 13lbs with exercise and eating extremely healthy. I would not believe any of these reviews saying they lost 30lbs in a month, it’s not true. I had a talk with 3 different doctors because I had seen these reviews before I took it. You’re not going to lose 10lbs a week, it will help, but it’s not a magic pill, you have to put in the work to lose it, more of an aid than anything else."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I started adipex on 7/13/18. It has almost been 3 months. I started at 208 and I’m down to 168lb. I have been very strict with my diet cutting out carbs and sugars and sticking to lean meats other than a few cheat days for special occasions. I wish they would prescribe longer than the 3 months"

For Obesity: "Last week I went to see my Endocrinologist and he sat with me and did a meal plan. He offered phentermine. I usually don't take drugs, but all the natural methods I tried didn’t work well. I took the medicine on Friday 37.5mg. On Thursday I weighed in at 219lbs. On Sunday I weighed myself at home and the scale said 212lb. I didn’t have any clothes on when I weighed myself. Was shocked only a couple days have gone by. The pills give me A LOT of energy! It last all day and into the night. After I take them, I do laundry and clean and feel euphoric. All I want to do is be active. I cut out sugar since Thursday and the meds make me feel really full, so I take a couple bites of salad or an boiled egg and I feel so full. It does give me dry mouth, so I drink more water. Makes my heart beat a little faster, but I hope this passes. So far so good! I just have to make sure I measure my food when I go off the pills and continue to cut out processed foods, bad carbs and sugar!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I’ve been taking Phentermine for 4 weeks. I’ve lost 11 lbs. It has helped my mood and really helped to suppress my appetite. It does make me sweat more than usual and I am always thirsty but it makes me drink more water which is good. I am dreading the time when I have to stop taking the medication. It has been so helpful. I do exercise 3 days a week and eat a 1,800 calorie diet."

For Obesity: "I started taking Phentermine on 9/2 and in the first week I lost 11 pounds!! The second week I did not lose anything but we had to evacuate due to a hurricane and even though I was never hungry when I did eat it wasn't the best food for me plus I don't think I thought to drink enough water. My third week (back at home) I am back on my 1300 calorie a day diet and tons of water I have dropped another 3 pounds in 3 days. Side effects for me are dry mouth (real bad but that's good for the water) jittery feeling but not all the time. Insomnia and elevated heart rate after any kind of exercise. I should mention I haven't exercised much at all. 46 year old female starting weight 241lbs on 9/2 and weight today 228lbs 9/24"

For Obesity: "Awesome pill!! Follow directions & you should be good! No regrets. Wish that Medicaid was still paying for it though. It currently cost me $25 from my pharmacy. Speak to your doctor first & then if it's a go~ Go HARD!! GOOD LUCK!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "So today...9/21/18...I am starting adipex. At the doctor yesterday I weighed in at 213lb and I am 5'4" . My doctor made sure my heart and blood work was good before starting. He recommend that I take half a pill in the morning and the other half around 1:00pm. My goal weight right now is just to get out of the 200 club. I weigh in at the doctor in one month and am determined not to get on the scale before that. My husband and I have joined Planet fitness to help in this journey and we have 6 boys to raise so we want to be healthy for them. God bless everyone that is on the same journey to be healthy. Will keep everyone updated. Thanks for reading "

For Weight Loss: "I'm a 43 year old male. I'd taken phentermine 13 years ago with good results. Over the last year and a half, I'd gained about 30 pounds, so I spoke to my doctor about something to control my appetite, especially since I work odd hours and tend to eat. I started 3 days ago on this round. My only side effect so far has been being a bit jittery. However, I've had more than a couple positives - I'm much more alert during the day, I haven't had to take any sleeping pills like before because I'm exhausted by bedtime, and it has curbed my appetite significantly."

For Weight Loss: "Two weeks now on phentermine and I've dropped 12 lbs. I've also been meal prepping and limiting caloric intake to about 1000 calories a day. Lots of protein, moderate carbs and under 20gm fat a day. I'm not hungry and I have enough energy to get through the day. Started at 253 lbs and goal is 170-150. The first day was rough...really bad headache and jittery. But since then, I've been fine. Lots of water as well as soluble fiber to keep the constipation at bay. Yesterday I put on pants I haven't worn in two years. I miss sugar, but not craving it. It's also fun to be cooking again! My peers see my meal prep and think I've gone out for take out. This med is the kick start and motivation I need to keep going. I'm super excited to see what I can keep doing!!"
