For Weight Loss: "Although I have been traveling and eating what I want I still managed to loose weight , I started at 263 and now I'm at 251 I've only been on this for 3 weeks now , I'm not really looking for a specific weight that I want to loose just want to be more healthy . But I haven't been walking like I used to because of the weather , but I will start back and maybe start seeing it shed faster , so far 12 pounds "

For Weight Loss: "SW: 260, CW: 205, GW: 160 My doctor prescribed phentermine on May 15, 2017. I have been taking half of a 37.5 mg pill in the morning and half in the afternoon. That coupled with daily exercise and a 1,400 calorie diet has resulted in a 55 lb weight loss in 4-ish months! There are side effects: nervousness, elevated heart rate, dry mouth, and constipation. However, these can be handled via your healthy lifestyle! Drinking about 4 liters of water a day solves the dry mouth and some of the nervousness (just always carry a water-bottle with you). For the constipation, I just take fiber gummies twice a day, and it does the trick! This has been an amazing health journey! If I can do it, you can too!! Keep working hard!"

For Obesity: "I started Phentermine 15mg in August 2016 (I weighed 274 lbs), by Dec 2016 I had lost 50 lbs. I attended kickboxing class too and changed my eating habits. I felt good about myself. Until I noticed some Hair loss. I was told that was not a side effect. I stopped the d Phentermine & the kickboxing after about a month, my hair stopped falling out. After 3 months I returned to the Phentermine, guess what ? My hair started falling out. I kept the weight off until August when I began my bad habits and not working out. I blame that on my knee injury, lol. I am now looking for another med to get me going again. I recently had a knee replacement and waiting for the day I can go back to kickboxing . Phentermine is only intended for 3 months"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Been on Adipex-p for 28 days and have lost 20 pounds. Doctor put me on it because I am menopausal and have a hard time losing weight. First week had a hard time sleeping but now no problems, I check my blood pressure daily and no issues there. Definitely get dry mouth with it that has been my only issue, I usually chew gum and keep a drink handy. Glad I was given this drug, doubt I would have lost what I did without it."

For Weight Loss: "I am seriously concerned, was given Phentermine to lose weight, however on my 3rd week and have lost nothing, the slimming clinic increased my dose to 38mg, what worries me ate the tablets that I have been given, they are white and round with no markings on them at all (looks like a headache tablet), I have googled images of the original and the generic, I am concerned that I am being taken for a ride by the Slimming Clinic in the UK, took the tablets to the pharmacy who could not identify them either due to no markings, has anyone else experienced this?"

For Weight Loss: "So I started phentermine yesterday September 2, 2017. I started out weighing 232lbs. I had a lot of energy, very thirsty, and some diarrhea. But overall not bad for side effects. I cut carbs and sweets out and ate 3 protein rich foods yesterday. I woke up this morning and I am already down to 228lbs! I will update again next week."

For Weight Loss: "I started on this medication back in February of 2017. I weighed in at 219 +/-. I had a few side effects [constipation slight] took some over the counter medicine and all is good. I didn't see anything at first, it took about 1 1/2 months. But to date I have lost 31 lbs. I don't really notice it looking at myself [I rarely do, as I have been disgusted with my weight issues and how I just really let myself go] but different co-workers noticed that my face was thinner. Then I noticed that my tops were looking like I was drowning. All in all, this has been a positive, and I would recommend. Thank you~"

For Obesity: "So I started taking phentermine because I have bad knees and cannot exercise and without losing weight I can't have surgery for a knee replacement. I must admit I was very skeptical about this pill but so far so good. I am 41 yrs old and I started taking this pill August 28th 2017 and at that time I weighed 365 lbs and as of this morning Sept 2nd I weigh 353 lbs. Thats a total of 12 lbs in less than a week. It completely takes my hunger away and I do have the dry mouth but I will deal with that. I have cut my food in half as I feel full much quicker and I like that. So far so good. I do drive a school bus so loading and unloading wheel chairs is a work out by it self so I get some exercise just not like I would like due to my knees."

For Weight Loss: "I went to my doctor because I was 128.6 kgs. My knees were starting to give out, I had terrible insomnia, sore spine, I was constantly sick all the time due to a low immune system so because I never exercised, I always developed a swollen throat and developed constant fevers. My doctor prescribed me duromine (which is the equivalent of phentermine) and saw the results pretty much immediately. It took me 6 months but I managed to lose 30 kgs just like that. And it keeps falling off. I exercise everyday now, I eat 1400 calories. I'm happier, healthier, I never get sick. People talk to me since I give off a different vibe. I recommend Phentermine to those who are having trouble losing weight."

For Weight Loss: "I started these pills on 8/11/2017. I'm 5'3 and weighed 163. Today is 8/31 and I have managed to get down to 152lb. The first 3 days went kinda crazy. Not hungry at all but still ate small portions. To this day I do not crave any sweets, soda or fast food really at all. Which is nuts because I love all that junk! I have been eating very healthy too. Lots of greens and chicken for dinner. Fruit and fiber bar for breakfast. I have cheated a couple times but it's ok :) I do have more energy during the day. Only thing that sucks is that I have a desk job so its hard to get out. I go walk outside every chance I get. Only 11 pounds so far. Overall I am pleased with this pill. I will continue to take it and repost in a month or so."

For Weight Loss: "Started my 1st does on 6/20/2017 @ 210 pds and as of today 9/31/2017 I'm @179. I did feel lots of energy the 1st 3 wks but not really after that. It curbed my appetites about the same time but now I'm so use to eating 4-5 small meals at 1200 calories its impossible to eat a big meal without feeling sick. The dry mouth is bad, but I've always had a water bottle with me so that helps. My activity level is chasing my gbaby around all day from 6a.m. to about 5ish. I also help the kids with cleaning their house daily and doing laundry. I haven't started a exercise regime really except for walking a several times a week for about a hour, just a leisurely pace. In all happy with the results but don't know how much is from the drug"

For Weight Loss: "Back again on my second week on phentermine Beginning weight before the medicine was 263lb they day I received the pills I weighed 261lb now today 255lb that's 6-8 pounds down . My scale been playing tricks on me though sometimes it says I've lost more than reality lol but that's just motivation. But they really work and I'm soo happy, I'm sticking with my diet I eat a breakfast before work take the pill and when I get off around 5 I eat dinner and don't eat after 7 I also walk or run at least 4xs a week . This pill really works but don't depend on it make changes in your diet and stick with it "

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "Today is day 7 taking it. Only lost one pound so far, but it might be giving me a little bit of extra energy. I am 60 so maybe it takes longer to take effect in post menopausal women, idk. I am 205 and 5'5" so hoping to lose 50 lbs. I will keep a positive attitude and hope it kicks in better soon."

For Weight Loss: "I have finally finished month one on 37.5mg of phentermine. I started at 144.6lb on my follow up appointment I was 136.6. 2 1/2 inches off my waist. 1 inch off both thighs and 1 inch off hips. The only way this pill will work magic is if you are really doing your part. The best thing that worked for me was portion control. Eat more often but eat a fraction of what you normally eat. More protein, fruits and veggies. Less fattening snacks and greasy food. Your body will adjust with you and you will naturally fall into the habit. Lots of side effects but they lose intensity after the first month. Well worth it though. With a strict diet and moderate exercise this pill works wonders on your body"

For Obesity: "I started taking this medication on 08/22/17, my starting weight was 195 lbs. now I'm at 190 and it's only been 3 days! I only drink water! About 6-8 16oz bottles a day, I eat about 1200-1500 calories a day. I have a lot of green veggies, and added a protein bar and meal replacement shake to my day. I take half a pill when I wake up and the other half around 4pm with my lunch. It helps by dividing the energy so I don't crash. Side effects are that I can't really fall asleep 100%, but I'm not tired so I'm pretty fine. My blood sugars have been way better! I'm a type 2 diabetic. So I take less insulin now. I work out 2Xs a day, 15 min. Sessions of just at home workouts nothing crazy, I just make sure I get my heart rate up and sweat like crazy"

For Weight Loss: "I started my journey on August the 10th it has been almost two weeks since being prescribed this medication and I have nothing but great things to say about it! I have lost an additional 4 lbs since my first weigh in at 208 on August 9th. Even the few side effects that I have are totally worth it. I almost immediately get dry mouth not long after taking the pill but I am consuming at least 64 oz of water daily that is good! Previously I would choose other things no so great for me. Slight constipation although it could be my vitamin, I can deal with that. I am extremely energized. I am eating way less but do try to stay conscious of making sure to nibble throughout the day. My diet is normal I eat what I want but stay under 1800 Calories."
