For Weight Loss: "TBaby726 when you start taking the phentermine post it. Yes we can encourage each other. I am very optimistic about losing weight this. In past attempts to lose weight I wasn't realistic & I was looking for something magical to reduce my weight. Take it one step at a time & don't beat yourself up if you don't hit the goal you are aiming for. Just don't give up & stay in the fight."

For Weight Loss: "I am 33 years old and 5'3 and weigh a whopping 300 pounds. I went on phentermine because I wanted help with portion control and weight obviously, and started on 10/20/16. I had started taking Phentermine 15mg capsule once a day for a week, then I started the 37.5 mg capsule once a day till current. When I started on the 15 mg capsule it was great! No major concerns, just dry mouth. Now I am on 37.5 and I have major dry mouth and tingling fingers and lips. I chose to still take it. As of 10/27/16 I got weighed and I now weigh 291. I lost 9 pounds in a week. Yay, its working. I am only eating right but not exercising. I highly recommend it! I only am giving it 9 stars because of the dry mouth and tingling fingers and lips. Good luck"

For Weight Loss: "53 year old female, 5'6, 202 lbs. Lost 30+ lbs in 9 months by eating all "fresh" food (nothing from a package) and walked 10 mins 2x a day (bought a cheap bracelet pedometer that kept me motivated.) Got down to 186. Back up to 202. Asked my Dr if I could try this. Want to get to 170. Started today at 5 am! :) Will keep you posted! Thank you all so much for sharing your stories...it is very comforting to have so many in the same boat! :)"

For Weight Loss: "I'm in the same situation Peaches but haven't started taking the meds yet. I also weigh 227 and am looking to lose 70-85 pounds at 5'3". I've tried so many things and I'm so discouraged. Please keep sharing your experience as I plan to join you and do the same. Maybe we can encourage each other."

For Weight Loss: "I started phentermine this am at 9, Dr put me on 15mg per day. Well I don't do drugs cause they scare me, and so do the side effects. So I pulled the powdered capsule apart and sprinkled 1/2 the powder into my coffee. I'm a sipper so I just keep sipping all day long on a beverage of my choice. Around 11 am i went back and sprinkled the other 1/2 of the capsule on my coffee again. I wanted to get the rest of the pill down before 3pm, afraid of the side effect of insomnia. I already have insomnia pretty bad, I just can't shut off my brain. I will keep splitting the pill to see how I handle the side effects if any. I can say WITHOUT A DOUBT, this pill DOES CONTROL your appetite. I am still not hungry, and very very excited about my journey."

For Weight Loss: "I haven't weighed myself yet because I've only been taking phentermine for 4 days now. I am starting to have the dry mouth, but my main concern is that the past 2 days I've had off and on numbness/tingling in my left arm and left lower leg. I plan on calling my doctor tomorrow about it. It has me kind of nervous, but other than that I actually have more energy and I'm not hungry at all."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Began adipex on 7/7/16, feeling great about it and a little nervous at the same time. I started out at 233 lbs and I am 5'5" so I was pretty chunky.. a 38.77 on the BMI chart to be exact... Well, I changed the way I ate, I only ate salads, meats, nuts and slim jims for the first week and I lost 12 pounds in 7 days. I cut out all sugary drinks, Haven't touched a drink with sugar in it since the 6th of July, so very proud of myself! Well, to cut this short, I now weigh 183 lbs and I'm still losing even though I'm not on this pill anymore. Just stick to your diet & you'll be good to go! It's hard at first, but I promise you get used to it fast & it just becomes natural!! GOOD LUCK!"

For Obesity: "I just started the pill on 10/29/16, I got the pills to help move past this plateau I have reached with my weight loss goals. The first day I had so much energy that I had to force myself to sit down after 8 hours of non-stop movement, cleaning, excising for the day, errands etc. These really do suppress your appetite. I had to force myself to eat boiled eggs for breakfast. I drank A LOT of water due to the dry mouth. By 6pm, I still had only eaten boiled eggs and I felt my mood change, not sure if that was because I had not eaten, but I was VERY moody. The moodiness wore off after I ate dinner. The want for food is just not there. Some issues with sleeping more than 6 hours. Make sure you drink plenty of water!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I was prescribed this medicine about two days ago, every person is different! Although I haven't had any side effects, I did crash after the first day taking this pill! It really curbs your appetite! I am currently 5'2 198 lbs! I'm forcing myself to eat but really no appetite... I'm eating smaller portions and also working out! Will update in another work or so!"

For Weight Loss: "Started taking 15mg 10 days ago and i have lost 10 lbs in 10 days and 2 inches off my belly. Please keep in mind I am walking and working out 30-45min everyday non stop, and have completely changed my diet. No bread, candy, soda, and very few carbs. So I'm not sure if its the pill or my new changes. I am still very hungry sometimes with 15mg. All in all at least it has helped me transition into a lot of good changes for my body. Only side effects are dry mouth and slight insomnia."

For Weight Loss: "I requested this medicine from my doctor after having a tumor in my knee for 4 years, restricting my mobility and causing me to gain a ton of weight. I started on 9/2 and took my 30 day supply. I stopped for about 2 weeks after my supply ran out so that I could use the restroom properly (without constipation). Went to the the doctor last week on 10/21, I'm down 15 pounds already! Got another script, ready to keep this journey going!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this medicine last week so I could lose weight faster and for the first few days the pills were working. They were making me not eat as much and I had a lot of energy. About 3 or 4 days later things got worse, I started getting very angry and agitated at everyone. I ignored this and thought it would go away, but it didn't. I started getting really depressed thoughts and it felt like I had to take this pill or my mood would get worse. The mood swings were getting worse so I put an end to this medicine. Wouldn't recommend this if you already have depression because it can make it worse on you"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I started taking it today and have seen a dramatic difference in cravings...they are non existent..I can't even finish my meals because I have no urge too. I see with this medication I am going to have to make myself eat. The energy boost it a major plus and because the energy boost is so strong in the morning I am going to change to morning workout for the duration of this medication. I previously lose 60 on my own but the doctor said I needed it to come off quicker. I'm 5,5 , 255 lbs...will be updating regularly.."

For Weight Loss: "I gained 45 pounds last year due to a broken bone in my foot which led to an eventual removal. I was not able to walk for 10 months. I've been on this pill since August and I'm only down 5.2 I'm 5.4' and 181 I need help I am so upset. I get a caffeine type high and usually have some extra energy. My appetite is surpressed for sure. What else can I do? I have a joint disease and a muscular disease also. It's so hard to move around some days. I am feeling prisoner in my own life"

For Weight Loss: "This is my second day of taking phentermine, the first day was ok, scalp felt like something would crawl under it every now and then, didn't sleep well last night, but I think that was my fault taking the pill too late in the day and too much coffee, and not eating. I love it this is the first time in a long time where I haven't felt hungry/starving all day. Went to gym and brisk walked/run for two miles. I will update more at a later date."

For Weight Loss: "Just started taking Phentermine 37.5 for the first time 10/22/2016 due to high blood pressure . Was really afraid of taking it after reading about the many side effects, but decided to give it a try. So far, i am really sleepy. My doctor advised me that I need to lose 5 pounds by the time i see him on 11/14/2016. I am hoping that i can do it. I am hoping not to experience too many side effects. Start weght:224 Goal weight: 180. I will update you after my appt."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started Phen 9/27/2016 weighing 201 lbs today is 10/21/2016 and I weigh 186 that is 15 pounds in less than a month...I eat right, I also get the Lipo B12 shot every monday and I go to the gym Mon-fri on my lunch break and I workout and jog every evening. It has different effects on most pple because we are all different. I take half of pill in the am and the other half at noon to reduce the fast heart beat and if you don't work out your not teaching your body discipline, The 1st 3 weeks are the hardest but it is easy now and i highly recommend this pill to anyone wanting to loose weight."
