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."

For Weight Loss: "Well I only lost 4 pounds in 2 weeks with diet and exercise but maybe I'm adding muscle with all the energy I'm putting into the gym. I can only hope, otherwise, I could've lost 4lbs on my own. Does wonders for my mood, energy level (most of the time) and appetite suppressant. Will give it the full 3 months and re-evaluate. Just a little disappointed I've only lost 4 lbs in 2 weeks with a complete overhaul in diet & exercise and this pill."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this a little over 3 weeks ago, the first couple of weeks I had lost 6 pounds, no cravings or hunger whatsoever, but a few days ago, all of a sudden the cravings came back and my hunger, I've hit a plateau, and like I said I'm starting to get back to my old eating habits, hopefully this is only temporary and the better results come back soon.."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I have been taking generic Adipex since Dec. 2015. I am 5 food tall and was 211 pounds. The first 11 pounds came off quick. Then I got down to 195. Now I am back up to 200 and can't drop the weight. My energy level is a lot better though. I don't really eat that much. So maybe my body is holding on to what I do eat. Who knows."

For Weight Loss: "I started Phentermine end of October of 2015 and ran on my treadmill 2x a day. I got hurt and wasn't able to workout for about 2 months. It is now May 2016 and I only take Phentermine every other day and I lift weights 2x a day and I have went from 227lbs. Xl shirts, and a size 18/20 in pants to now 166lbs. Medium shirts, and a size 10 in pants. I only drink water unless we go to the movies I'll share a sprite with my daughter. Drink smooties and eat a nutri grain bar for breakfast. Skip lunch and eat dinner with my kids before 6 most of the time. I LOVE IT!! I'm also on a anti depressant that makes me gain weight so I'm doing pretty good at keeping it off and losing more."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I started Adipex 37.5 a week ago today 04-07-2016 and I have gained 3 pounds??? I don't understand why it's not working I'm using my fitness pal to help track my meals but the most I get out of these is a headache and I'm very moody. I called my doctor but today is Saturday to see why I haven't been so successful as the others that I have been reading about my start date was 268.5 when I weighed myself today and 272 I'm so disappointed I paid $100 for the pills in Detroit, Michigan and my repeat visits are $75. I am not hungry but very gasy. I eat 3 meals per day and have not worked out yet."
