For Weight Loss: "I'm currently weight 188lbs 5/9/17. I heard about Phentermine thru a friend who lost 25 lbs in 3 months on and off the pill. I decide to try it for myself (her dosage was 37.5mg and my DR prescribe a lower dosage at 15mg). My insurance didn't cover it so I paid cash $30 for a 30 day supply. I'll start my first pill tomorrow morning and will post my one week update."

For Weight Loss: "I am 5'10 & weighed 236lb. Before getting on pill Dr checked all blood work, an EKG & checked urine. I had no health problems besides being overweight so I was a good candidate. I was on this for 5 months & lost 40 lbs. No side effects except constant thirst. I had to see Dr once a month for blood pressure readings which were all normal. After the pill I kept losing from working out & now I am where my BMI should be. I keep reading ppls experiences & they say how much they lost, then gained it all back & are on the pill again. This pill is a miracle pill in that it teaches you how to eat again. If you don't change your eating habits drastically & work out regularly you will gain all the weight back. Use this pill as a 2nd chance at life!"

For Weight Loss: "I was put on this medication after I gained 50lbs over a few years. I was prescribed the 37.5 mg for 6 months. I started on 3/27/2017 weighing 180lbs at 5ft 3inchs. After 1 month, I have lost 10lbs. This medication works, but you do have to change your lifestyle by making better food choices and eating in moderation along with exercising. I haven't exercised a lot, due to a surgery I had - but once I am cleared to exercise, I will. The only side effect I experienced was dry mouth, and this has subsided after a week or so. I cant wait to see the results."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pill already. I've been only taking it for 8 days and already I lost 9 lbs. I weighed 188 lbs and now I'm 179 since I've started taking it. It helps curb your appetite. I have to remember to eat honestly. I do have blurry vision and dry mouth and tons of energy. I'm not constipated like most because I take vitamin C I guess. I love the results and will continue to use it. I'm 5'1'' and my goal weight is 130lbs. I will keep y'all updated :)"

For Obesity: "I was 312 pounds when I started taking Phentermine 37.5 mg 11/2016. I took it for two months and only lost 12 pounds. I missed my appointment in February because my mom passed away. I went back to the doctor and and weighed in at 306 pounds on April 6, 2017. Today is May 7,2017 and I am 300. I lost down to 299 but have gained a pound because I haven't been drinking water and I haven't been active. Overall I have lost 6 pounds in a month. That isn't bad for not exercising. The medicine is wonderful but I am experiencing extreme dizziness to the point I am nearly fainting. I believe I need to drink more water. I have taken this medicine before and never had this problem but I believe it's because I am dehydrated. Drink water!!!!!!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine (adipex) on 3/1/2017, weighing 208 lbs. I'm 28 years old and 5'8. Since having my son 6 years ago, my weight has been up and down dramatically. When I started the medication it gave me extreme dry mouth but the doctor said that was normal. That helped me increase my water intake. I started carrying a 16 oz water bottle with me everywhere and constantly refilled it. He wants me to consume 1200-1300 calories a day. I'm not "dieting" per say but it does make me eat smaller portions. I walk my dog 2 miles every day and that's the extent of my excercising. Today is 5/6 and I'm down 18lbs. I highly recommend this pill to anyone who needs a little boost."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this in March 2014 until the end of 2015. I lost over 40 pounds but I was more so impressed with the inches I lost. I just had a baby in November 2016 and I started taking it again for a month now. I have lost about 5 pounds but ready to move on to something else."

For Weight Loss: "I am updating my status. I stopped taking phentermine on 5/3/17 because my prescription ran out and I didn't set my doctors appointment in time. It has been 3 days and I have been experiencing constipation, which is weird because I still drink my detox. Has anyone ever experienced that issue? My appointment is 5/15 where hopefully my doctor will prescribe me another months worth in the mean time I will be drinking the detox eating right and working out 7 days a week in order to lose more weight by the time I see my doctor. Currently I weigh 219 and my goal is to weigh 215 by 5/15/17."

For Weight Loss: "I began taking phentermine a few months ago. I am 5'9 & 273 pds. I was so depressed, so putting the weight on came like second nature. I tried all the fad diets, weight watchers & Slimquick. I researched to see what else could I do and that's when I discovered Apidex. I went to my Dr and explain my situation & told her I wanted to try Apidex. She went online & 10 min later I had my script. After 1 mth I dropped to a whooping 252. I had brain surgery on 3/23 & couldn't refill my script until 3 weeks later. I started feeling better after 3 wks & weighed in again & I was 242. I had not been taking them for 1 mth. I saw my Dr. on Thurs. for the refill & today 5/4 I weigh 230. I have energy & work out. Side effects: dry mouth so drink lots of aqua"

For Weight Loss: "I'm starting Phentermine today. I took it several years ago and lost 50lb. fairly quickly. If I recall, I was on 37.5mg daily. This time, the doctor is starting me out at 15mg. Is this normal? I actually have more weight to lose this time than I did last. I will of course stick with the instructions, however I'm worried I won't get the desired results and he'll stop it altogether. Thoughts?"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine April 24, 2017. I am 5'2" starting weight 184 and as of today May3, 2017 I weighed in at 179. It has curbed the appetite, dry mouth, and headaches. Also I am not sure if it is caused from Phentermine but my face, arms and scalp have broken out with sores. I will continue for another month and see what happens. I only pay $11.64 for a 30 day supply. "

For Obesity: "I started Phentermine 37.5 on Sunday, April 30th 2017. I am 5'6 and 210 lbs. My issue is that a year ago I started a desk job and I packed the pounds on quickly. I have always been a bigger person but I have never been this big. I always thought about food all day - wondering when and what my next snack/meal was going to be. I should mention that I have been splitting these pills in half per my doctor. The first day I took it I had lots of energy and no appetite. Like a switch flipped in my brain and suddenly I wasn't thinking about food and my stomach wasn't growling. I never eat breakfast, just drink my daily coffee and have been eating a fruit cup from lunch and then I eat dinner as usual with the family. I've lost 4 lbs so far!"

For Weight Loss: "Several years ago, I took Phentermine for 9 months. I lost 75lbs, my hair, and my ability to sleep. I had extreme insomnia for several years which then turned into major anxiety. It took me about 5 years to get a full head of hair back...I had bald spots all over, and I am back at my original weight. My husband told me he would divorce me if I went back on it. I became a food Nazi and could not sit still...basically my family hated me. Sad thing is...here I am looking into phentermine again because I hate my weight."

For Weight Loss: "My heaviest weight of the year was 243lb on 2/26/17. I started taking phentermine on 3/8/17 with a height of 5'7" and 237.4lbs. On 4/8/17 I weighed 224.6lbs and today on 4/28/17 I weighed in at 218.4. Side effects I experienced were dry mouth, stomach aches, constipation so I drink a detox daily, lightheaded during workouts. But other than that it has been suppressing my appetite very effectively and I lost a total of 25 within 2 months"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "Started taking 12 days ago, starting weight of 256.6lb & today 250.0lb. Side effects: increased energy which I absolutely love, suppressed appetite which is good, dry mouth which means I drink a lot of water which also is good. Considering I struggled with drinking enough water daily, this changed that. I still get hungry, but only 2-3 times a day, once I start to eat I'm full very quickly. A simple snack like fruit or raw veggies quickly takes the hunger away. I eat a sensible dinner with the family. I've completely lost interest in soda & sweets. I do take a multivitamin. Stay smart, watch what you know you should be eating, exercise & live healthy. You can do it, this helps."

Severe stomach pain, So I force myself to eat small meals. I do notice that I'm constantly thirsty. Easily agitated or annoyed also. But other than that I like the results"

For Weight Loss: "First day was not good at all. I felt paranoid, had a day-long headache, excessive thirst and dry mouth. But, I did not crave my usual fast food. Day 2 was much better; push through until your body becomes accustomed. Fabulous results and increased energy. Also I am getting a caffeine detox which is very beneficial."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I've been taking low dose adipex for about 2 weeks now. I am 5'7" and started around 165 lbs. I haven't been taking adipex regularly as I am a nurse and work rotating shifts and it suppresses my appetite so much that when I want to go out for nice meals/ enjoy weekends I also don't take it. I have not experienced any jitters or vision effects but I am much more focused and have much more sustained energy that I actually save them for night shifts. I eat like a toddler being constantly on the go and rarely have time for the gym. I do however spend 36-48 hours on my feet running around at work. So far without any effort I am down 7-8 lbs. I highly recommend this and I'm sure results would be exaggerated diet & exercise."

For Weight Loss: "I began taking phentermine on April 10th. I started with 1/2 dose and then went up to a full dose. The first week was fine, it wiped out my appetite but by the second week, I began experiencing severe nausea, vomiting and deep depression. I could not stop crying and it was over absolutely nothing. I discontinued this after 2 weeks. I lost 11 pounds but this depression is not worth it. Apparently this side effect is not very common. I wouldn't wish this feeling on anyone. I wish I could have stayed on it because it definitely works and I have no doubt I would have reached my goals of losing 30 pounds."

For Weight Loss: "I took phentermine for about a month. I lost about 10 pounds. I had to stop taking this medication. It made me overly anxious, emotional, and I became irritated very quickly. I also experienced hair loss.I did not feel like myself at all. I feel so much better after I stopped taking this medication. The side effects are not worth it."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine in January 2017 weighing 279lb to March 2017 to weigh 238lb. That's about a healthy 13lbs a month. Now let me be honest and say I took these pills maybe 4x a week, I was not working out, and not eating as nutritionally as I should have. BUT these pills still worked miraculously giving me a much needed boost in energy every morning and throughout my working day. The only side effect I had was DRY MOUTH I would wake up and drink a bottle of water out of my sleep. Stay hydrated friends. I believe with a healthy diet and a few workouts a week will shed that weight off. I've lost 40lbs and I'm looking good finally. Just started phentermine again, working out and eating better! I hope for the best for you!"
