For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine today 37.5mg. I got weighed yesterday evening at my appointment and I was 188.7lb. Weighing in tonight a 8:24pm at 184.6lb. That's 4 pounds down in 24 hours. Idk what's in this pill but so far I'm pleased. GW 150lb. I think I'm going to get there pretty quick seeing as though I don't eat badly and I'm not new to exercising at all. Its a life choice. I got off birth control which is what made me gain the weight but I'm doing everything I can to lose and keep the weight off. Good luck to you all"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking 1/2 pill of Phentermine 37.5mg on April 3, 2018. I’m 49 years old my SW was 205 lbs and I’m 5’7”. I have been a yo-yo dieter for quite some time now and nothing seemed to work. Carbs in form of pasta and rice are my weakness. I would eat till I got full and most of the time it was 2-3 plates later. When I first took the pill my heart rate did go up and my chest didn’t hurt but I felt it got tight. Followed the plan of eating low or no carbs and would eat my last meal before 7pm. Didn’t work out at all, but just took the stairs at work. Fast forward Sunday April 8, 2018 weighed in at 196.5. That’s an amazing 8+ pounds lost in 5 days. I don’t know if it’s that little pill but I’m definitely buying into it. It takes my craving completely. This is just a temporary fix and controlling what I eat. I’m so ready for this weight loss journey. Let’s go!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started this in late October 2017. I think it was a few days before Halloween and I was begging my doctor for help. I'm 5'1 222lb and mom of 2. I'm very small boned so this was a dangerously high weight for me. It is now April 2018 and I'm 162lb. 60 pound lost. My doctor said I'm not in the clear. She wants me at 115. She will keep me on it till I'm at that weight or it stops working. This isn't a magic pill though. You still have to try to exercise but it just gives you a little help. I have my husband on it now. Let's see if it works for him."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I started Adipex on March 21,2018 and so far I have lost 8 pounds. I'm excited. Now I am at a plateau and haven't lost or gain but my clothes are fitting loser. My start weight was 265lb and my goal weight is 170lb. I'm really looking forward to getting under the 200 mark. Was getting a bit discouraged because I just stop loosing until I read these reviews and I can say I feel much better. I won't give up. I will continue with my weight loss journey. The only side effect I have with the Adipex is dry mouth which is a good thing because it's made me drink more water lol. I have more energy everyday and the cravings are less especially at night. I will continue to keep u updated as the days go by."

For Weight Loss: "I have struggled with weight fluctuation as long as I can remember. I am now 40 years old and after some medication changes and health issues I am currently at 197lbs and 5'4 which puts me 33% above IBW. Started Phentermine 37.5mg on 4/7/18. The only side effects I have noted have been increased urination and dry mouth. I can handle that!! My appetite is suppressed and I have had to make sure I make myself to eat. I have def. cut calorie intake and I started working out a month ago. Cant wait to see what this medication and life style changes do for me!!!!!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I started adipex on Jan 16 2018..weighing in @ 227lbs and a 41"waist.then I lost 16lbs in a month and lost 4" off my waist. Leaving me at 211lbs 36" waist. 2 weeks later I'm was 205lbs and desperate to get out of the 200s club. I stop taking the pills for a Month because I felt like my weight loss was at a plateau and for that month I was off the pill I didn't lose nor gain. weight. So I did more research about the pills and it said to keep taking it even if it felt like it wasn't working, and I'm glad I did! Now today April 8th 2018 I am proud to say I am 198.3lbs and officially out of the 200 club!!!! And I will continue to push for my goal weight of 170lbs (I changed my goal weight to 170 from 160 by the way) I will continue to keep you guys updated. God bless!!!"

For Weight Loss: "I have been on Phentermine 37.5 mg since 2-5-18. I started at 265lbs and at my 2 month weigh in with my doctor I weighed 231 lbs -34 lbs gone in 2 months. I eat 1000 or less calories a day with no sugar or carbs. Lots of protein and I drink a gallon of water a day. I hate to say it but I did very minimal to no exercise HOWEVER I just signed up at the gym today because exercise definitely is important and my doctor told me to get off my butt and move it...so i will. Phentermine has been a great tool. Now I'm gonna take it to the next level. My new goal is to lose 20 more lbs by July 27th for a concert I'm going to. I will update again at my next 2 month weigh in. Good luck everybody!!"

For Weight Loss: "I've used 37.5 mg of phentermine since Jan of 17. I have Coronary artery disease (CAD), & high blood pressure. My cardiologist flipped when he found out but deferred to the judgement of my Internist. I had a heart-to-heart with my Dr and told her please HELP me as I was running out of options and near 70. I went on phent due to the cost of alternative drugs. My baseline wt was 306 lbs and I steadily lost wt for nearly a year until this past Nov when I had lost about 65-70 lbs (about 20+% of my base wt). My Dr said I was an anomaly to most compared to others on phent. I had no mild or major side-effects assoc. with phent. By Nov '17 I plateaued out and gained less than 10 lbs through the Christmas period. Since Jan of this year I've alternated between taking phent for a month, then not. This Jan and Mar I gained wt when not taking the drug and in Feb and so far in Apr, I have lost wt when taking it. When I see my Dr in a few weeks I'll talk about adding the Topamax to my regimen to increase the long-term effect. Good luck to all!"

For Weight Loss: "I have been phentermine since 02/01/18. 8MG, per day, in the morning, in conjunction (to start) with 25MG Topamax, then increased to 50MG Topimax on 03/01. Today, 04/03/18 I have increased to 16MG with 50MG Topimax. Since then, I have gone from 268lb to 246lbs. I have cut down my diet in a big way, and I eat low carb (I have PCOS, this may not be good for everyone but works for me). I also stopped eating most sugar. I don't seem to have lost weight as quickly as others, but my doctor wanted to slowly taper me up to minimize side effects. I can happily say I have had NO side effects. I am hoping this doesn't change with the increase. It is hard to tell if my weight loss is due to my change in diet or the medicine, but I have come to the conclusion it's a mixture of both. I began my weight loss in 11/17 without the aid of medication and it was very slow. Only after adding in Phentermine did I begin seeing real results."

Lomaira (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I'm a 6'2" 47 year old overweight female. Like everyone else that is overweight, I have tried everything on the market! I started using Lomaira 2 weeks ago after my Dr recommended it to me. Previously on PHENTERMINE 37.5 MG TABLET, she thought maybe it would help to curb my appetite since I take these 3 times per day. Problem #1 it made me super constipated! I ended up in at the hospital last week with severe stomach pain. My X-ray showed my colon was packed full. Problem #2 It kept me wide awake at night!! I would try and go to bed around 8-9 pm, and would be back out of bed by 10 and wide awake until 4am..complete insomnia! Problem #3 it never curbed my appetite, in fact I ate worse taking Lomaira than with the Phentermine. Weight loss pills aren't for me I guess! Good Luck to everyone that is having success with this drug! I envy you!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I have been yo-yo dieting on and off for many years. I have hovering around half way to my goal weight, So far I have lost 60 pounds and have not gained it back. I just couldn't lose the last 50 pounds. I finally asked my doctor for an appetite suppressant, which she claimed she didn't believe in. She wrote me a 30 day prescription as a trial. I began that day, March 20, 2018, weighing 209, Today, March 30, I weighed in at 200! That's 9 pounds in 10 days! This IS working! I'll definitely get a refill. Side effects are minimal, I have dry mouth and a slight headache when I first wake up, but it's worth it. I will give more updates."

For Weight Loss: "I started Phentermine March 14th with a starting weight of 221lb and a BMI of 32. My height is 5'9 so luckily I was able to carry my weight well. Well 11 days later I am now at 209lb. I gave up my sweets, now do portion control and work out 3 days a week. This pill is amazing! My goal is to be under 200, and I'm so close!"

For Weight Loss: "I am 40 yrs old female and started Phentermine on 2/24/2018. At that time I weighed 338 lbs. I went to the doctor on 3/23 for my month check-up and I weighed 316 lbs. I lost 22 lbs in 4 weeks. I haven't experienced any side effects from the medication other than being thirsty. Thinking about losing 22 lbs in a month sounds dangerous, but I'm eating breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack, and then supper. I haven't drank pop in 3 yrs. I drink lots of water every day. I count calories, eat a lot of fruits/veggies, and cut bread and sugar out of my diet. I don't feel the need to eat unhealthy foods. I'm not starving all the time. When I AM hungry, it's not like I want to rip someone's head off 'cuz I'm "hangry". I haven't been exercising daily, though I go for a 45 min. walk about 3 times a week. I'll be curious to see what my weight is at my next check-up appointment!!"

For Weight Loss: "I started on March 19, 2018 I don't think it's working I take it before breakfast and I might have a little energy then it goes away I did have headaches but that has subsided. I still have the dry mouth. I have no problems sleeping as a matter of fact I tired. I go to a boxing class at least 3 to 4 times a week I try to eat healthy. I even put a timer of every 2 hours to drink water to see if that will help me lose the weight. I just don't know if these pills are working. I'm afraid to get on the scale and I'm getting very frustrated with trying to lose the weight. What else can I do?"
