For Obesity: "I have struggled with my weight for years. I am 5'7" tall female. I started taking phentermine on July 13, 2016. My starting weight (my highest) is 268. I had lost about 20lbs on my own. When I talked to my doctor about my problems with my legs and how my weight seemed to have stalled, she recommended this. I go back next month for my 1 month follow-up. One thing i noticed is dry mouth. My goal is to get down to between 160 to 180 by Christmas. Next week I plan on going to the gym to walk on the treadmill. Wish me luck."

For Weight Loss: "5'1 222lbs started Phentermine 37.5mg June 14, 2016 now July 13, 2016 DOWN 22lbs and DROPPED 4 1/2 INCHES!! This pill is so GREAT! Appetite control is severe, sometimes I would forget to eat but your body definitely will let u kno once you have tapped out of nutrition! Mouth dryer than cotton helps with the daily water intake! I exercised 3 to 5 days each week and the pouring sweat didnt wait to drip. Heavy sweat! Still maintained portioned meals and sometimes just a few healthy snacks if i missed a few meals! Im so panicked that Im out of Phentermine and dont see my doctor until August 8, 2016! Im waiting on my next monthly supply to Drop more Pounds and Inches! I encourage everyone to stay focus and dont be hard on yourself! Beautiful!"

For Weight Loss: "I am a 31 yr old female, I weighed in at 207lbs and a height of 5'3. I started taking Phentermine 30mg around May 15th. I went in for a 30 day check up and I was down 17lbs. I wasnt hungry at all, most days I wouldn't feel like eating untill lunchtime, then I would take a pill with a bottle of water before lunch then eat a small lunch, and an even smaller dinner. I would try to walk for 20-30 minutes a day, sometimes more, sometimes I wouldn't get a chance to walk at all. The doctor was very pleased, as was I. He perscribed me for another 30 day perscription... But... I have done everything the same this round and haven't lost any weight at all. I have even threw in some extra walking. Has anyone else experienced this?"

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Made me super sick. This was my first time trying it, I took the prescribed dose, and I've been trembling out of my skin for the last hour. My blood pressure is through the roof and my heart rate is 141 bpm right now. I'm also nauseous and would be at the emergency room right now if not so terrified I'd crash my car if I tried to drive."

For Weight Loss: "40 yr old female. 5'3" Started on 37.5 mg of phentermine, July 9th. Starting weight was 200.4. Today is July 11th and I weigh, 194.6. I'm sure its water weight, but I'm still losing. Yay! Haven't been able to get much sleep since being on it, and dry mouth, hence the water increase. Don't feel hungry, but I do eat. I'm curious as to how much more I will be able to lose. First goal weight is, 170. Second goal is 150."

For Weight Loss: "Female, 27 years old, 5'1", starting weight 132 lbs 14 days of taking Phantermine, i'm 5 lbs down, current weight 127 lbs. I was prescribed Phantermine at 15.00 Mg for the first two weeks, I lost 3 lbs - no change in appetite. My doctor raised the dosage to 37.5 mg. I'm now 5 lbs down. With the increased dosage, I feel like I've been sucking on cotton balls all day :( but it has forced me to drink at least 70 fl oz. a day. Downfall, is that since my dosage was increased i'm only sleeping a couple of hours a night. On a positive note, since the dosage was increased my appetite is non existent, I have more energy, I've lost 5lbs in 14 days. Good luck guys and gal"

For Obesity: "Female 40yrs old, 5'3". I've started phentermine 37.5mg Friday July 8, 2016. Starting weight 200.4. Today July 10, 2016, I am down to 196.4. I've lost 4 pounds. I'm sure is water weight, as I've increased my water intake my 90%. It suppresses my appetite, but couldn't sleep first night. I find to get a headache mid afternoon 2-3pm. I take it at 830am. Take Excedrin, and all is well. I'd like to get to 170 first goal, 160 2nd goal, and then finally 150. So far those are the only side effects I'm experiencing. I'm not counting calories, but am watching what I eat and drink only water, and exercise hr 3 days week, plus daily housework. I also have a kitten that's very hyper and keeps me active. LoL. Good luck to everyone's weight loss!"

For Weight Loss: "I wrote a review before when I was a couple weeks into taking phentermine. I am 5'4" and I started on May 1st, 2016 weighing in athe 236 pounds. I was postpartum 1 year after my second child. Today is July 10th, 2016 and I weigh 200 pounds and still losing by the day! I've noticed lots of changes I'm going to share with you all. For starters, I did experience the dry mouth side effect for the first month. I also experienced lots of energy which was a huge thing for me. Now that I'm about 2 1/2 months in and the energy really subsided. Also, in my second month there were days I would not take my medicine because I honestly just missed eating. I also noticed I could continue healthy choices w/o the med. I'll check back in!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I am a 28 y.o female 5 ft 1 in and weighed 167.2. I started changing my eating habits 10 days before taking the pill and lost 8 lbs. I have been on the pill for 2 days and so far, it has curbed all my cravings. It definitely does give you dry mouth. I go to the gym 4 times a week plus do work outside at home every day of the week. I drink a gallon of water plus some everyday for the dry mouth and to keep me hydrated. I am motivated. I don't wake up tired. I have loads of energy. I am trying to get down to 120 to 125. I will update in 2 weeks :) :)"

For Obesity: "Reading everyone's postings about the Phentermine is very exciting! I wish everyone nothing but the best on your weight goals. I have been on the Phentermine since 6/4/16. I will say though this is my actual 2nd time of being on it. The first time I was on it I did have not much success on weight loss. I didn't loose as much as I wanted too. I was very discouraged. This time I am more determined then ever to reach my weight goal. I was 208lbs at the end of May. I am about 5'4 and considered being obese. Since I have started taking it I have lost 8 pounds. I am very excited to see where this is going to take me. I do have have littlest side effects dry mouth. High intensity workouts is working for me. Exercise is the results of your goal!!!!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this drug prescribed by my doctor on 6/21/16. I had started a diet the previous week of only fruit and vegetables. I dropped a good 8 pounds from that. I started medication and it has helped my appetite control. I took one full pill every day for a week. I started walking a lot. A good 2-3 miles a day. I also kept with eating fruit in morning and low carb/protein during the rest of the day. I have had to drop down to half a pill because of insomnia and have noticed constipation. I am on weight watchers now and follow the plan. I eat fruit and vegetables like crazy and I know it helps the weight loss. I am down 13 pounds as of 7/8/16. I am sure I will start to lose 1-2 pounds a week soon which is the healthy way."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I re-started Adepex today. Full dose. I had amazing results 2 years ago. Went off it, but gained 40 lbs back. Unlike some user reviews, I can tell you the weight gain was NOT a result of quitting Adipex. It was poor choices in diet and lack of exercise. I got lazy. But NOT because I quit taking Adipex. I started today because I need help. It is a potent drug. And it will make you not want to eat. EAT ANYWAY. When you don't, you WILL experience mood swings and hostility. The purpose of this drug is to HELP you make better food choices and to get into a good exercise routine. Drink LOTS of water and EAT every three hours. Do some research BEFORE taking this drug. It can be EXTREMELY beneficial if you use it the right way. Good luck all."

For Weight Loss: "Female 37 yrs w Starting wt 263/ending wt 230. Was on phentermine 37.5 for 3 months. Lost 15lbs first month, 10 second, and 8 the last month. Only dealt w jitteriness, insomnia, dry mouth for the first 2 weeks. I made sure to take pill early and would take a half pill periodically if side effects were bothersome. By the end of first month side effects were gone except for constipation, and I was able to maintain 1400-1600 calorie per day goal. Around week 7 or 8, I noted that my appetite was not very suppressed, so I would eat breakfast, and take pill 30 minutes before lunch. This seemed to boost the appetite suppression for me. I walked 4-5 miles about twice a week. Hoping to continue diet and wt loss after stopping phentermine."

For Weight Loss: "I started watching what I eat three days ago and taking 1/2 pill a day for the last two. I have only experienced dry mouth- no jitters, no heart problems, nothing. I also have noticed a MASSIVE difference in my appetite- I have none. I have to make myself eat and am careful to eat healthy foods. I have lost 5lbs in 3 days. I know it's water weight, but I have to start somewhere and I'm thrilled that it's starting so well. Fingers crossed the weight continues to come off!"

For Weight Loss: "Ok so im 5'5 32 years old and I weight 151. I went to my PCP for a physical 6/30/16 and was telling her that I can't seem to lose the last 10 pounds. she recommended me to take Phentermine. She told me to take half pill a day only. and wants to see me in a month. Well I decided to take my first pill the next day 6/31/16 after breakfast I waited two hrs but I took the whole pill just because I completely forgot I had to take 1/2 .... Anyways after taking the first pill 30 minutes later I started experiencing dry mouth... Then I was hyper, jittery, then I could feel my heart beat a little faster, then I got the chills, I was a little dizzy and this is only after 1 pill... I was having all these symptoms for only 2 hrs."

For Weight Loss: "I am on my 45th day of taking phentermine, and I have lost 33 lbs. I had a little trouble getting to sleep the first few days, but fine now. It does give you a lot of energy which was one of my problems and does keep you feeling full. My weight when starting was 292 and I am now down to 259 in only 45 days. I am finally feeling strong enough to do the elliptical for a longer period of time. I started taking the drug to help lose weight because my doctor said I was pre-diabetic, and that was a year ago. So I fooled around for almost a year, going on and off diets and couldn't seem to stick to anything. I never liked the thought of taking pills. But I thought I would give it a try because I didn't want to get diabetes. Happy with it so far."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started taking adipex two weeks ago and lost 8 first week. I haven't lost anything since. I do not have more energy and in fact get tired mid day. I actually can't even tell that I am taking it. I do eat less but that is about it and have dry mouth. I found a coupon online for Kroger and it only cost me $10.88 for a 1 month supply"
