For Weight Loss: "The pill has helped with my appetite. I have lost 8 pounds in about 2 weeks. But the side effects are bad. I constantly feel exhausted. I get very hot and weak if I have to do very much. It feels like my arms and legs are weighted down. It's a real struggle to do anything."

For Weight Loss: "I started out weighing 197lbs. I've fluctuated from 180-195 for the last 5 years. It's been awful. I'm 38 so shedding pounds is extremely difficult. I finally got a prescription for Phentermine and I'm down 8 lbs in just 1 week with healthy eating. No counting calories. Just tons of veggies, lean turkey burger patties, Vega protein shakes and lots of water. My goal is 130lbs since I'm only 5'2". I did decide to take a whole pill yesterday and it gave me a massive headache. Won't be doing that again."

For Weight Loss: "The first time I took it, I did manage to lose 5 pounds in a month. Unfortunately, I gained it all back after I went off it. My doctor put me on it again. I managed to lose three pounds in the first day. Unfortunately, that seems to be it. It's frustrating because although I am not hungry, my weight sometimes will go up by a pound throughout the day. I assuming this is water retention. I do walk at least 10,000 steps daily and am on my feet. I used to take Adderall for ADHD and I think that drug has ultimately destroyed my metabolism."

For Obesity: "Today is my first day. 5/11/2017. I was told me to take it around 10:00 am as it could cause insomnia if I take it in the evening. I took it at noon.I had been procrastinating all morning. I'd done research and read all of the side effects. Even after getting the RX filled and placing the pill on my napkin next to my oatmeal I was still undecided about starting this med.I'm 246lbs and 5'2. Morbidly obese. I'm tired of being fat so what the heck, let's get this party started. I swallowed hard about noon. 1:30, I was jittery and sleepy.2:30, I had to walk around to keep from laying my head on my desk. As soon as I got home, I took a nap. Where is the promised energy?"

For Weight Loss: "I started Phentermine on 04/17/2017 starting weight 236, as of 05/08/2017 my weight is 225. I am on a strict 1200-1300 calories a day diet. I work out for about 25-30mins at the gym (usually just walk about a mile a day) on my lunch break. I feel like I should be losing more. I weighed myself this morning and I'm still 225. I'm happy to have lost 11lbs so far but would love to be down more before my dr appointment on May 20. Also, I feel discouraged since I haven't lost anymore this week. "

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I've been on adipex for 11 months now and I've dropped 117 pounds! I didn't exercise only took the pill and cut out everything bad (even though it taste good, doesn't always make it healthy for you) eating wise. Sugar, flour, bread, pastas, FASTFOOD, and even eating after a certain time. I started eating healthy snacks every two hours, ( egg whites, cottage cheese, bag of steamers vegetables, lots of chicken, belvita snacks, carrots and peanut butter etc,and drinking lots of water! Do this and I promise you'll drop weight immediately."

For Weight Loss: "I'm currently weight 188lbs 5/9/17. I heard about Phentermine thru a friend who lost 25 lbs in 3 months on and off the pill. I decide to try it for myself (her dosage was 37.5mg and my DR prescribe a lower dosage at 15mg). My insurance didn't cover it so I paid cash $30 for a 30 day supply. I'll start my first pill tomorrow morning and will post my one week update."

For Weight Loss: "I am 5'10 & weighed 236lb. Before getting on pill Dr checked all blood work, an EKG & checked urine. I had no health problems besides being overweight so I was a good candidate. I was on this for 5 months & lost 40 lbs. No side effects except constant thirst. I had to see Dr once a month for blood pressure readings which were all normal. After the pill I kept losing from working out & now I am where my BMI should be. I keep reading ppls experiences & they say how much they lost, then gained it all back & are on the pill again. This pill is a miracle pill in that it teaches you how to eat again. If you don't change your eating habits drastically & work out regularly you will gain all the weight back. Use this pill as a 2nd chance at life!"

For Weight Loss: "I was put on this medication after I gained 50lbs over a few years. I was prescribed the 37.5 mg for 6 months. I started on 3/27/2017 weighing 180lbs at 5ft 3inchs. After 1 month, I have lost 10lbs. This medication works, but you do have to change your lifestyle by making better food choices and eating in moderation along with exercising. I haven't exercised a lot, due to a surgery I had - but once I am cleared to exercise, I will. The only side effect I experienced was dry mouth, and this has subsided after a week or so. I cant wait to see the results."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pill already. I've been only taking it for 8 days and already I lost 9 lbs. I weighed 188 lbs and now I'm 179 since I've started taking it. It helps curb your appetite. I have to remember to eat honestly. I do have blurry vision and dry mouth and tons of energy. I'm not constipated like most because I take vitamin C I guess. I love the results and will continue to use it. I'm 5'1'' and my goal weight is 130lbs. I will keep y'all updated :)"

For Obesity: "I was 312 pounds when I started taking Phentermine 37.5 mg 11/2016. I took it for two months and only lost 12 pounds. I missed my appointment in February because my mom passed away. I went back to the doctor and and weighed in at 306 pounds on April 6, 2017. Today is May 7,2017 and I am 300. I lost down to 299 but have gained a pound because I haven't been drinking water and I haven't been active. Overall I have lost 6 pounds in a month. That isn't bad for not exercising. The medicine is wonderful but I am experiencing extreme dizziness to the point I am nearly fainting. I believe I need to drink more water. I have taken this medicine before and never had this problem but I believe it's because I am dehydrated. Drink water!!!!!!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine (adipex) on 3/1/2017, weighing 208 lbs. I'm 28 years old and 5'8. Since having my son 6 years ago, my weight has been up and down dramatically. When I started the medication it gave me extreme dry mouth but the doctor said that was normal. That helped me increase my water intake. I started carrying a 16 oz water bottle with me everywhere and constantly refilled it. He wants me to consume 1200-1300 calories a day. I'm not "dieting" per say but it does make me eat smaller portions. I walk my dog 2 miles every day and that's the extent of my excercising. Today is 5/6 and I'm down 18lbs. I highly recommend this pill to anyone who needs a little boost."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this in March 2014 until the end of 2015. I lost over 40 pounds but I was more so impressed with the inches I lost. I just had a baby in November 2016 and I started taking it again for a month now. I have lost about 5 pounds but ready to move on to something else."

For Weight Loss: "I am updating my status. I stopped taking phentermine on 5/3/17 because my prescription ran out and I didn't set my doctors appointment in time. It has been 3 days and I have been experiencing constipation, which is weird because I still drink my detox. Has anyone ever experienced that issue? My appointment is 5/15 where hopefully my doctor will prescribe me another months worth in the mean time I will be drinking the detox eating right and working out 7 days a week in order to lose more weight by the time I see my doctor. Currently I weigh 219 and my goal is to weigh 215 by 5/15/17."

For Weight Loss: "I began taking phentermine a few months ago. I am 5'9 & 273 pds. I was so depressed, so putting the weight on came like second nature. I tried all the fad diets, weight watchers & Slimquick. I researched to see what else could I do and that's when I discovered Apidex. I went to my Dr and explain my situation & told her I wanted to try Apidex. She went online & 10 min later I had my script. After 1 mth I dropped to a whooping 252. I had brain surgery on 3/23 & couldn't refill my script until 3 weeks later. I started feeling better after 3 wks & weighed in again & I was 242. I had not been taking them for 1 mth. I saw my Dr. on Thurs. for the refill & today 5/4 I weigh 230. I have energy & work out. Side effects: dry mouth so drink lots of aqua"

For Weight Loss: "I'm starting Phentermine today. I took it several years ago and lost 50lb. fairly quickly. If I recall, I was on 37.5mg daily. This time, the doctor is starting me out at 15mg. Is this normal? I actually have more weight to lose this time than I did last. I will of course stick with the instructions, however I'm worried I won't get the desired results and he'll stop it altogether. Thoughts?"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine April 24, 2017. I am 5'2" starting weight 184 and as of today May3, 2017 I weighed in at 179. It has curbed the appetite, dry mouth, and headaches. Also I am not sure if it is caused from Phentermine but my face, arms and scalp have broken out with sores. I will continue for another month and see what happens. I only pay $11.64 for a 30 day supply. "

For Obesity: "I started Phentermine 37.5 on Sunday, April 30th 2017. I am 5'6 and 210 lbs. My issue is that a year ago I started a desk job and I packed the pounds on quickly. I have always been a bigger person but I have never been this big. I always thought about food all day - wondering when and what my next snack/meal was going to be. I should mention that I have been splitting these pills in half per my doctor. The first day I took it I had lots of energy and no appetite. Like a switch flipped in my brain and suddenly I wasn't thinking about food and my stomach wasn't growling. I never eat breakfast, just drink my daily coffee and have been eating a fruit cup from lunch and then I eat dinner as usual with the family. I've lost 4 lbs so far!"

For Weight Loss: "Several years ago, I took Phentermine for 9 months. I lost 75lbs, my hair, and my ability to sleep. I had extreme insomnia for several years which then turned into major anxiety. It took me about 5 years to get a full head of hair back...I had bald spots all over, and I am back at my original weight. My husband told me he would divorce me if I went back on it. I became a food Nazi and could not sit still...basically my family hated me. Sad thing is...here I am looking into phentermine again because I hate my weight."
