For Obesity: "Im 52 years old, 5'11" and weigh 284lbs!!!. I was actually 297 a month ago. My doctor prescribed Phentermine for me yesterday June 16th. I've decided not to eat after 7pm and walk vigorously at least once a day. Sweets are my "trigger" and it always makes me want something salty afterwards. I've never been this big before, not even when i was pregnant with my child. Even my feet got fat. I can't wear cute shoes and its difficult to find clothes that appeal to me. My motivation is to get the extra weight off so that I can have more energy and look the way I want to look in clothes.It's funny how much age weight puts on your face and body image. I love myself even at this size. I'm excited about this journey!!! Wish me luck!;-)"

For Weight Loss: "Started phen 1 month ago at 202 pounds. I am now 184 pounds. I have about 36 more pounds to go. I eat 1000 to 1200 calories a day and I monitor my sugar, carbs, protein, fat and nutrition. I occasionaly take a 1 or 2 day break from phen and calorie counting so when I go off phen and counting calories I know how to control myself so the weight doesn't come back. I am learning a lot about true hunger and porton control. Phen is a small part of the big picture. It is helping me set myself up for lifelong healthy eating and lifestyle habits."

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I used to take fastin/Fastin XR in 2012. Within a few short months, I went from a size 9/10 to a 4. I kept the weight off for 3 yrs after stopping this product. I’m only 5’3″, so all the extra weight on me was really noticeable. I didn’t like the side effects at all, shaking, racing heart…but it definitely worked. I just started taking this product again, a few days ago, because I’ve gained 35+ lbs within 4 months due to major lifestyle changes. I’m trying to get back on track again. Hopefully, I’ll get similar results this time around too."

For Weight Loss: "I am a mother of 3 with an office job and DO NOT WORKOUT WHILE TAKING THIS MEDICINE. The reason I don't workout is because it increases your heart rate to the equivalent of what it would be if you were to go for a run. I'm no cardiologist or medical expert but I don't feel like you should increase the heart rate beyond that point by actually working out. There is a certain heart rate that is unsafe based on age, height, weight.. Etc... Now that I've said that, I started taking this Medicine on Thursday June 9th 2016. I weighed in this morning June 13th 2016 and I've lost 9lbs in 4days! That's AWESOME. I'm on a no carb/low carb diet so every so often I take in some carbs it's almost impossible to avoid them. I Also drink NOTHING BUT WATER."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this drug on May 29,2016 weighing in at 301. I've experienced the dry mouth but not to bad just makes me drink more water like I should be lol. Today 6/12/2016 I'm weighing in at 290, I haven't really changed nothing in my diet besides not eating big portions and not eating as often like I use to. So this has been a big help for me so far."

For Weight Loss: "Update*** Started Phentermine Feb 22, 2016 at 269lbs. Last update on here was April 25th, at 247lbs. Since then I started weight watchers, which has been beneficial in keeping me on track as far as the types of foods I take in. I weighed 6/10 and I was 235. The weight loss is slow, but I still find phentemine very helpful in suppressing my appetite. A little over 30lbs in about 3.5 mos."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started taking this pill on 5-10-16 weighing in at 245 lbs and today is 6-12-16 and I weighed in this morning at 229 lbs. I have lost a total of 16 lbs. I take it for two weeks and stop then start again. I feel this is helping me lose weight faster. I just started exercising this week so hopefully that will help with the weight loss. I take it earlier in the day because if I don't I will be up all night. It gives me energy more than I normally have but sometimes too much where I am talking tooo much and tooo fast and I have to do something...Maybe go for a jog..Lol. So as of right now I would recommend this."

For Weight Loss: "Well this is day 3rd on taken the medicine and I feel great! At first I didn't really have no energy at all anymore. My appreciate has went down, but I don't really eat enuff but I do eat. But i have had the dry mouth. When you dont eat your body starts to eat the stored fat inside and thats how we get bigger! But today I will start doing my meal plan just to give you guys and FYI just make sure you are eating every 2 to 3 hours small portions.. I love to workout. So that wouldn't be a problem cause my doctor inform me that I have to work out while taking this medicine. I will get back with everyone when I see more weight lose. Remember to be active.."

For Weight Loss: "I was prescribed Phentermine 37.5 on April 29, 2016. My DR said to only take half a pill for the first 30 days. I took that first thing in the morning with water. It helped with feeling hungry. The only side effect I had was extreme dry mouth. I just started my 2nd month yesterday, which I will start taking a whole pill but I have noticed I'm feeling hungry more often. I drink 175-200 ounces of water daily, I feel like I cant get enough to drink. I cut out sodas, eat very healthy food and go to the gym 3-4 times weekly. I track my calories on My Fitness Pal and am always under my daily calorie goal. My starting weight was 233, I weighed in this morning, a month later and I've only lost 8 pounds."

For Weight Loss: "I was prescribed this medication in the end of March and I weighed 227lbs. I've been on it since then and weighed in today at 194lbs. I plan on taking it until I reach my goal of 175lbs. The only side effect I've experienced is dry mouth. Other than that I have had no jitters, no problems sleeping and it has curbed my appetite and made me eat better portions. Plus it's made me feel better and more confident in the way I look and given me more energy."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this medication two weeks ago. I am a single mother so i exercise as much as i can. I also have a office job so i sit more than I am active for my 8 hour or more shift. I can say it has decreased my appetite and I get full much faster when I eat. As to eating smaller portions I also cut off sugar drinks all together. I have my cheat days every now and then but who doesn't? Over all i have lost 8 lbs in two weeks!!! its more than i would of lost eating a cheese burger without it. So over all I am happy about this product and hope to lose much more and cut that cheat day out once and for all. Its also gave me so much more energy. Good luck on your journey guys:)"

For Weight Loss: "I started Phentermine 30 mcg on Friday, May 20, 2016. Although I was prescribed 2 pills a day, I only take one because I hate not being able to sleep at night. The first night I only got three hours sleep (but was not tired the next day). In 6 days I went from 171 to 164. I have limited my food intake but I haven't exercised (aside from weedwacking the yard). I do take one generic tylenol pm before bed so I can sleep. I have a dry mouth, but it isn't bad. I am calm and focused so overall, it is a pretty good experience so far. I am a 53 year old female with a thyroid that doesn't function very well and I'm 5'2". I had a hip replacement last year and I need to lose weight because each pound I gain is 3 pounds of pressure on new hip."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking Phentermine in March of 2016. As of my doctors visit on 05/16/16, I have lost a total 23 lbs. My starting weight was 289 and I'm currently 268lbs. The medicine does cause dry mouth, but after taking it for sometime it doesn't seem to bother me. I gained most of my weight after having my daughter who is now 4 years old. I decided to change my eating habits before taking the Phentermine. It has become a lot easier that way. My goal weight is 185. I will keep everyone posted as I continue this weight loss journey."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "In Jan of this year I weighed 170.0. I had some gallbladder issues that ended up with it being taken out and caused some weight gain. It is now May and my last weigh in was 141.4. I love my adipex and I would recommend it for anyone. I have had two children and so my body has been through the ringer. I love the energy it gives me and the appetite suppression. I also like that it makes you thirsty and the only thing that helps is water. I am now a water drinker and I drink well over the daily recommendation. I love this!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Been on generic adipex for 1 month. Start weight 183. Current weight 171. Drink lots of water on this. Dehydration can cause headaches ( get migraines already so this did not increase due to the medication). First day i was nauseous. first week was extreme dry mouth and complete lack of appetite. I had to remind myself to eat during the first week. At some point during the second week i was feeling a bit hungry but not the constant hunger i experienced before. As of the end of the first month the only persisting side effect if the dry mouth. I'm also not sleeping very well! but I just take tylenol pm for that. overall i feel good. i'm losing weight. im less hungry so i'm selecting better food choices. (chocoholic lol) and no serious issues."
