Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "This medication works YES...HOWEVER it has side effects not listed & if you don't workout then you're not going to see the same results as the people loosing the mass amounts of weight!!! I took this supplement/medication almost 6 years ago & I worked my hind end off the 30 days I took it I lost 17 pounds that's all I need motivation to get me started in the right direction to a healthy life I worked out five days a wk changed all my eating habits (stopped eating when I was satisfied not full, if I craved it I bought it took a bite/drink and satisfied my craving) I was the smallest and healthiest I had ever been or so I thought till 2/25/15 when I had my gallbladder removed bc the damage me & my dr believes to have been from the adipex!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Hello everyone, I am going to review this medication from 6 years ago because it was the first & only time I had taken it & just got prescribed again today. I had blown out my right knee in 2010 bad enough to be out of work for 7 months working as a corrections officer. I weighed in pre op at 363. I am 6'4" tall & in 4 months I lost 70+ lbs. went from 363 to 286lbs from Nov. 2010 to March 2010. In that time I injured my back had to dart pain meds & the pain was so bad that I could no longer exercise. All I did was go to work & come home & lay In bed. From 2010 to today I now weigh 449. After a long battle of immobility & depression along with pain meds, I have now made my mind up to grit my teeth and make another change. This med works."

For Obesity: "Hi Everyone! I'm a (recently turned) 30 y/o mom of 2. I say recently bc I truly dreaded turning lol. The first time I took Phentermine (37.5 mg) I lost 20lbs in about 2 1/2 weeks and was able to keep it for the duration of time I was on the medication (3 months). That was a little over a year ago. I am now back up to 160 lbs (my "normal" weight has always been 135). My doctor has ran a billion test it on me has tried so many medications and now on my 4 month of Phentermine I take 3 pills a day, stay hungry and exhausted. I am also on Celexa (40mg), Topamax (100 mg) (also for weight loss) and Vyvanse (60). And not a pound dropped.... whoppidie-dooda-dee :-("

For Weight Loss: "I started this pill on June 28, 2016 and I am 5'0 tall and was weighing in at 160lbs before I took this pill. Omg!! This pill does work, it is August 1, 2016 and I am down to 148lbs that's 12 lbs over a little of a month. I'm trying to reach my goal!! I have 28lbs to go, I had to cut out bread and wine for a while and replace it with veggies and water. Some form of exercises with this pill will do wonders!!"

For Weight Loss: "UPDATE: I started taking phentermine 37.5 mg. on July 19th weighing 177lbs, today is July 30th and I weigh 169lbs. so I'm down 8lbs. I don't take the medicine everyday sometimes I skip 1 or 2 days & I only take 1/2 a pill to cut down on the side effects plus I don't want my body becoming dependent on this because I won't be on it long. I'm happy with my loss & sure it could be more but I'm trying to do this the right way as safe as possible. Will give you another update when I reach my 1st goal of losing 20lbs."

For Obesity: "I started using Phentermine 15mg in the morning and Trokendi in the evenings. My journey began 6/20/16 starting weight 369 (the most I've ever weighed) wife and mother of 2 teens just got comfortable. I decided to seek help. Today 7/29/16 I am down 38 pounds. The Dr. Just changed my dose to 35.7mg. I feel much better I sleep great. My taste buds have drastically changed and I find myself having to carry water everywhere I go due to dry mouth. Other than that no complaints. This is giving me the boast I very much needed to get healthy again."

For Weight Loss: "Started 1 week ago, was on half a pill & now on the full pill, 3.75mg. Lost 6lbs in 6 days. Lost 2lbs yesterday, putting me at 8lbs total in 1 week 7-29-16. Eating 200-450 Cal per day, walking an hour and a half total per day. I am amazed by this miracle pill. I am bipolar and everything should be heightened, but I sleep fine at night and do have some extra energy. Only sleeping for a few hours a night. Can't lose weight on my own bc of meds I'm on. SO happy and so impressed. Try this if you need to lose weight! Will update next week :)"

For Obesity: "I started on Phentermine on June 7, 2016 at a weight of 235#. I am 5 feet 7.5 inches tall. The only side effects I have experienced are a dry mouth and increased energy (a good thing). In the first three weeks I lost 15 pounds. Then the weight loss slowed a little. It took three weeks to lose the next ten pounds. My target weight is 180#, a loss of 55#, so I am about half way there. My plan is to take 90 days of Phentermine, then discontinue for 90 days to figure out how to sustain the weight loss without the help of an appetite suppressant. After 90 days I will resume taking Phentermine until I reach my target weight. I have never felt more optimistic about losing weight and keeping it off."

For Weight Loss: "I just started taking the pill on July 23 and I weigh 178, today is July 26 and I now weigh 174. If you have dry mouth try chewing sugar free gum as a singer I use that trick all the time to keep my mouth moist and it works. Please drink lots of water as well, but it makes the dry mouth not so bad. I have a thyroid condition so I take that pill early in the morning and I make myself eat a piece of toast or something 30 minutes later and take the pill and I don't have a problem sleeping at night. I walk every other day and I have a decrease in my appetite, but I still eat. Some people say that don't eat at all that is not healthy. Oh and I don't drink or eat anything with caffeine so I won't have a problem sleeping at night with the meds"

For Weight Loss: "I started this medication three weeks ago. I was very nervous because of all the side effects that people were against for. I'm very upset. This medication is a good energy booster. But literally that was it for me. I felt energy and no hunger at all. However, I have only lost 2 pounds. I've eaten better and worked out more but have not lost but those 2 pounds. I really thought this medication would help me. Guess not. At least I didn't feel any palpitations or crazy side effects. My advice, try it. If it works for you great! If it doesn't at least you tried."

For Weight Loss: "I started phentermine 37.5mg 6/25 /16 my start weight was 248. Which is the most I have ever weighted... I gained 100 pounds well pregnant with my daugther.

For Obesity: "Hi everyone!! I am a 33 y/o wife and mother of 4 beautiful children ages 11, 9, 7, and 3. My last baby was born via c-section. After my first 2 children, I was able to bounce back quickly. After my 3rd child, it was difficult to get the weight off and after my 4th, it seems impossible! I'm a stress eater most definitely. I scheduled a visit with my doctor and expressed to her how awful I felt by not being able to lose weight. She informed me that my BMI is 36 and it's supposed to be 25! I weighed in at 219lbs and I'm 5'5 and 1/2! I started taking the generic form of Adipex at 37.5mg on 07/19/2016. I weighed in this morning 07/22/2016 and I'm 216lbs! I've already lost 3lbs in 4 days! More updates to come!"

For Obesity: "I started on this April 22, 2016. I'm 32 and a mom of 2. 5'4. Starting weight was 272. I sit at a desk 8 hours a day. I love to eat. I have tried everything except surgery. Spent lots too! I was always hungry. This medicine has helped me to stay on track with a calorie goal of 1500 or less most days. I bought a fitbit and after work I've only had between 3200 and 3800 steps. So we go on walks and my daily average is 11,000. I started jogging a little bit. Every other day we do toning about 30 min and we get the kids involved too. I have lost 40lbs before but it took me 9 months and living at the gym. As of today I have lost 42 lbs. 230 weight. It has been 13 weeks and not slowing down. Dry mouth yes! But is cool for my results!!!"

For Weight Loss: "Hi I started this weight loss journey in March. I walked the park in January and February and wasn't losing anything. I weighed 225lbs. Until one day girls from around the area convinced me to go to the gym. One of my friends told me about adipex and how she is dropping weight. So I checked it out and started it in March and signed up for the gym. My eating habits died and I drank nothing but water. I cut all my soda out. Now it's July and I'm weighing in at 190lbs. That is 35lbs in 5 months. After my 3 kids my weight just climbed and it was at the highest point ever. I feel soooo much better and my clothes fall off of me. It's a miracle pill but keep up with water intake and working out. :)"

For Weight Loss: "I've been taking phentermine 37.5 for a while now, since June 7, it is now July 20 and I have only lost 8 pounds. I don't have an appetite at all, I have to force myself to eat, I think it's only like 1000 calories a day if that. I have really bad heart burn and have some insomnia, other than that I haven't experienced anything else. I am 5'6 and started off weighing 180, I'm down to 172. I did have an episode of jitters, tingly arms, rapid heartbeat, and cold sweats but I ate an apple and I felt much better. I'm not sure if the pill is actually helping me lose weight, since I've been on it for 44 days and have only lost 8 pounds."
