For Weight Loss: "I started taking these pills last Thursday. Six days later and I have already lost 9 lbs..... My appetite is pretty much non existent I have been eating 1 meal per day and and I usually have a protein shake as a meal replacement. The first 2-3 days I didn’t sleep at all now the only symptom I have is dry mouth. I plan on taking this medicine for as long as my doctor will allow me to. SW 238, CW 229 ,GW 170"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I took adipex in August of 2015. Starting weight 232lb. Lost 16lbs the first month and got off the pill. I kept up my workout routine and lost and additional 17lbs the following month. I kept the weight off until December 2016. Well its September 26, 2017 and I'm back up to 230lbs. Today is my first day back on Adipex. I plan to eat better, drink more water and exercise a lot more than I did the first time to get better results!!! So excited. My goal weight is 175lbs.... wish me luck!"

For Weight Loss: "Started this medicine, 37.5mg on Saturday September 23 at 285lb and as of today September 26 I have lost 5 lbs. I had gastric bypass and lost over 100 lbs., but then stalled due to I'm sure my bad habits starting again. I still can't tolerate sugar, but for some reason carbs love me. So my doctor wanted me to try this to push start my weight loss process again and even though I know in my mind what to do I'm glad this pill is helping me to get back on track. I was given a one month supply and will follow up with my doctor in a month to see if it's working and then he will give me another prescription. Only side effects I have noticed was a little dry mouth on the first day and I was up till 4am. I haven't started exercising yet."

For Weight Loss: "I started out at 319lbs on 8/23 I have been taking it for just over a month now and the results are more than what I have expected and more weight than I have ever been able to loose. I started taking this medication because I have been overweight for my whole life and I was ready for a change. I got Phentermine prescribed to me and I have taken it regularly for the past month and now I am down to 289lbs. I can most certainly say that I feel better having lost 30lbs and it has been a great start in my journey to become healthier and more fit."

For Weight Loss: "I am now on my second round of phentermine. My first 3 months however were amazing! I'm so excited to see how the next 3 months go. I have lost over 45 pounds in 3 months on Phentermine. I went from a size 22 in pants to a size 16. I can go more than just a few feet without losing my breath. I was in a hopeless situation with my body, I couldn't run, I couldn't breathe.. I could barely walk without losing my breath and energy. Now I'm 236 lbs and I'm ready for round two! People say once you stop the medication you gain it all back. But my lowest was 232 and I've only gained 4 lbs in 3 months. (I was on 3 months, off 3 months) if you drink your water like you're supposed to, don't splurge on your calories or carbs, you WILL lose the weight!"

For Weight Loss: "Continuing from my last post. I do still get dry mouth and I sweat bad. Now that I have been on it for about 2 in a half weeks I am noticing that it's not working as well as it was the first couple weeks of taking it. I don't get energy like I use to and it's not keeping me awake like it use to. So idk. I'm still gonna take it hopefully I am losing some weight. I'll update after I've been on it for 30 days."

For Weight Loss: "LOVE THIS! Wish I'd tried it sooner, still have another week till I hit my 3 months & lost over 60 pounds. (not exercising at all) 484lb to 423lb and still losing pretty steadily!! My only side affects are increased heart rate sometimes when I'm just sitting or somedays I completely forgot to eat... so I took some re-learning to get used to. It gave my stomach the time to shrink (which I normally can not do durning a diet) and I can eat normal portioned meal and feel completely satisfied (how I assume normal people feel) it's a whole new world and I could not be more happy with the results! I lost 10% of my body weight so far & extending pills for 3 more months! If you're on the fence, definitely try it, could be the best thing you do for you!"

Ionamin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I took this tablets back in the late 80's/early 90's. They were very addictive and I was put on a higher dose. The establishment I acquired them from was a 'diet' clinic in North East Surrey. I would politely call them quacks. They had NO regard for my actual weight - I was in fact 8st 4lbs . Frankly, had I have been 6st I'm sure I would still have gotten them. Did they work? Yes, without question. I went 2 solid days without eating a single thing. My only intake was cups of tea. The downside was chronic insomnia which last long after the tablets ceased. I believe these tablets were at the root of the onset of my life long problem with IBS. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. Plan meals, eat sensibly and exercise - you will lose weight."

For Weight Loss: "Male, age 75, SW 244, GW 179. Started on 30mg twice per day today. Looking forward to more energy and appetite control. Based on many other reviews, 60mg per day sounds like a lot, but that is what the doctor prescribed. Also taking Chromium 200mcg twice daily. Weight loss is needed to save wear and tear on the knees. Hope this medication helps. Will follow up in a week."

For Weight Loss: "SW: 260, CW: 205, GW: 160 My doctor prescribed phentermine on May 15, 2017. I have been taking half of a 37.5 mg pill in the morning and half in the afternoon. That coupled with daily exercise and a 1,400 calorie diet has resulted in a 55 lb weight loss in 4-ish months! There are side effects: nervousness, elevated heart rate, dry mouth, and constipation. However, these can be handled via your healthy lifestyle! Drinking about 4 liters of water a day solves the dry mouth and some of the nervousness (just always carry a water-bottle with you). For the constipation, I just take fiber gummies twice a day, and it does the trick! This has been an amazing health journey! If I can do it, you can too!! Keep working hard!"

For Obesity: "I started Phentermine 15mg in August 2016 (I weighed 274 lbs), by Dec 2016 I had lost 50 lbs. I attended kickboxing class too and changed my eating habits. I felt good about myself. Until I noticed some Hair loss. I was told that was not a side effect. I stopped the d Phentermine & the kickboxing after about a month, my hair stopped falling out. After 3 months I returned to the Phentermine, guess what ? My hair started falling out. I kept the weight off until August when I began my bad habits and not working out. I blame that on my knee injury, lol. I am now looking for another med to get me going again. I recently had a knee replacement and waiting for the day I can go back to kickboxing . Phentermine is only intended for 3 months"

SW:232LBS GW: 140LBS CW: 226LBS It's probably mainly water weight. But still nice to see a decrease on the scale. :)"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Been on Adipex-p for 28 days and have lost 20 pounds. Doctor put me on it because I am menopausal and have a hard time losing weight. First week had a hard time sleeping but now no problems, I check my blood pressure daily and no issues there. Definitely get dry mouth with it that has been my only issue, I usually chew gum and keep a drink handy. Glad I was given this drug, doubt I would have lost what I did without it."

For Weight Loss: "I am seriously concerned, was given Phentermine to lose weight, however on my 3rd week and have lost nothing, the slimming clinic increased my dose to 38mg, what worries me ate the tablets that I have been given, they are white and round with no markings on them at all (looks like a headache tablet), I have googled images of the original and the generic, I am concerned that I am being taken for a ride by the Slimming Clinic in the UK, took the tablets to the pharmacy who could not identify them either due to no markings, has anyone else experienced this?"

For Weight Loss: "So I started phentermine yesterday September 2, 2017. I started out weighing 232lbs. I had a lot of energy, very thirsty, and some diarrhea. But overall not bad for side effects. I cut carbs and sweets out and ate 3 protein rich foods yesterday. I woke up this morning and I am already down to 228lbs! I will update again next week."

For Weight Loss: "I started on this medication back in February of 2017. I weighed in at 219 +/-. I had a few side effects [constipation slight] took some over the counter medicine and all is good. I didn't see anything at first, it took about 1 1/2 months. But to date I have lost 31 lbs. I don't really notice it looking at myself [I rarely do, as I have been disgusted with my weight issues and how I just really let myself go] but different co-workers noticed that my face was thinner. Then I noticed that my tops were looking like I was drowning. All in all, this has been a positive, and I would recommend. Thank you~"

For Obesity: "So I started taking phentermine because I have bad knees and cannot exercise and without losing weight I can't have surgery for a knee replacement. I must admit I was very skeptical about this pill but so far so good. I am 41 yrs old and I started taking this pill August 28th 2017 and at that time I weighed 365 lbs and as of this morning Sept 2nd I weigh 353 lbs. Thats a total of 12 lbs in less than a week. It completely takes my hunger away and I do have the dry mouth but I will deal with that. I have cut my food in half as I feel full much quicker and I like that. So far so good. I do drive a school bus so loading and unloading wheel chairs is a work out by it self so I get some exercise just not like I would like due to my knees."
