For Weight Loss: "After gaining 90lbs through the last 4 years of nursing school, my heaviest weight of 277lbs when I asked my MD for a px for Adipex. I started taking phentermine (Adipex) 37.5mg daily every AM on May 9th and weighed in at 267.2lbs May 17th, 266.1 May 25th, and 263.9 June 1st. I also do between 30-60min strength training/cardio 3-4 times/week at the gym. After my first week taking this px, I did find myself needing to pay more attention to eating small meals 5-6/day or the side effect of dizziness would occur. Dry mouth is also a side effect which I've noticed so I bring water with me everywhere to get my fluids in around 3200mL. I started taking half this dose the other day to decrease the dizziness which has been effective."

For Weight Loss: "I am 46 years old and 4'11". On April 4th I was 165 pounds, borderline diabetic with high blood pressure at my Dr. visit. He prescribed phentermine which I started taking on April 5th. Today I had my 2 month visit and I have lost 19.8 pounds total. My fasting blood sugar was down to 88 and my BP was down also. Hoping to lose another 8-10 before my appointment in July. Feeling great!!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine 37.5mg on Feb 28, 2017. I am 5'7, and weighed 264 pounds at the time. I did not loose much due to me being inconsistent with taking the pills. Once I became consistent accurately, in March I lost a total of 11 pounds for the month. (253). In April, I was on a second refill, but someone stolen my pills, so I was not able to take anything for the month April. Refilled on May 13, 2017, weighed in at 258, I gained 5 pounds. On May 24th, two weeks after taking the pill I lost 8 pounds which put me down to 250. The main point of all this is to be consistent, with taking the phentermine, exercise, eat your protein, and drink water water water water. I drink a gallon of water daily. I hope this helps someone!"

For Weight Loss: "I'm 5'3" and last year I was at my heaviest of 267. I started on phentermine last year for 3 months and l lost a total of 38 pounds. I kind of fell off the band wagon of going in each month for a new prescription and how busy my life got and ended up gaining 13 lbs back in a year. But ready to get back on the band wagon and go for at least another 38 pounds if not more."

For Obesity: "I took Phentermine about a year ago and successfully lost 50 lbs in 3 months ( losing most of the weight in the first two months and hitting a plateau in the third month). It got rid of cravings and hunger ( I had to set reminders to get myself to eat meals), increased my energy significantly ( I have Hashimoto's and lack energy), and of course lost practically all the weight without extreme exercising. I did do cardio and use my Bowflex during the week, but nothing compared to going to the gym. I was going through a few things for a while and ended up gaining back 30 lbs. I just started back on just HALF a .375 pill and losing 3 lbs a day right now. I have 0 negative effects. HIGHLY recommend."

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Just purchased fastin XR today and I'm very excited to try these. After being prescribed adipex from my doctor and no longer being able to go to the doctor each month to get a script I'm ready to lose 40lbs and get this post baby weight off. I'm a little nervous about the side effects but I'm sure if adipex had no effect I will be fine"

For Weight Loss: "Phentermine will work short term, i lost 16 pounds, 5 through taking it and the other 11 pounds through a healthy balanced easy to follow nutrition program. Teaching your body to eat right and portion control is key in this, my meals only cost $2.85 and have truly helped me balance without taking drugs to trick my body to do it. Meg"

I don't know about y'all but I'm happy! When I first started this medicine I was full of energy but now I just feel like a normal person.

For Weight Loss: "I'm 5'2", 32 years old and had been an athlete most of my years (track and field sprinter, power lifter and basketball) always weighing between 114-130. I went through a depression and gained +40lbs within 6 months last year. I went to my doctor for weight loss help (after getting my depression under control) and she prescribed me Adipex-p (phentermine 37.5). I take the whole pill. On May 10 my weight was 174lbs, May 16th: 166lbs, May 25th: 163lbs. I'm very happy and encouraged to keep it going. I run 1.2 miles 2-3 times a week. My goal is to drop to 20lbs by my next doctor appointment June 20, 2017 and overall goal is to be 125-130lbs. Side effects: no appetite, dry mouth. I will update this every month as I progress."

For Weight Loss: "I had my two month appointment 5-11-17. I am 24 year old female, my starting weight was 192. My first month on the pill I lost 16lbs. Month 2 I lost another 10 pounds. Almost 2 weeks later and I lost another 6 pounds! 23 inches lost. The first week on the pill I could not sleep at all, occasional dry mouth but helps to encourage to drink lots of water. Doctor warned me with the dramatic lose in body mass I could start feeling side effects. The past 4 nights I haven't been able to sleep. Even with melatonin and zquil I'm still awake until 1 am. But I will deal with sleepless nights to get to my goal 135 pounds. This is not a magic pill. I go to the gym 4 times a week 1hr cardio and weights. My PCP does 4 months on pill 1 month off."

For Weight Loss: "**** UPDATE**** My original comment was posted 05/18/2017.... I had my 1 month appointment on 05/20/2017. My weight was 219lbs. I lost 13lbs since I started. I have noticed that the longer I am taking the pill, the less burst of energy I have in the mornings. So now the only side effect I have is dry mouth. Hopefully, I can lose at least another 10lbs by my next appointment."

For Weight Loss: "I'm 25yr old and after having my daughter 7 yrs ago I struggle with my weight.I'm 5'4 and weigh 205. I just recently started taking phentermine 15mg. May 19 2017 and already lost 5lbs in less then a week. I do go to the gym twice a week and have been watching what I eat. The only side affect I get is that I get sweaty and really hot almost like hot flashes. I am only taking these pills for a month if I do not lose weight then my doctor will be taking me off. I hope to lose at least 50lbs. I will continue to eat right and go to the gym to help with weight loss."

For Weight Loss: "I'm a 5 foot 3, 165 pound female in her forties. Today is 5/21/17 and I'm starting on Phentermine 37.5mg; I'm only doing a half of a pill each day but if I don't see good results, will increase to a whole pill. I'm hoping to lose 45 lbs. in the next 3 months to reach my goal of 120 pounds. I have a medium frame & large breasts so I hope by losing weight, inches will fall off in my chest area as well as my waist, hips, thighs & arms. I'm exercising 5 days a week by doing PIYO & weight training. I just turned 48 two weeks ago & would like to get fit and healthy before menopause starts. SORRY for the long entry,; I will update with my results in a few weeks."

For Weight Loss: "I'm 44 years old and only 5 feet tall and have struggled with my weight for over a decade. I'm currently at my heaviest at 250 pounds. I was so small in high school - college 100 pounds. A friend at work lost 31 pounds on it in just 3 months. I asked him how he did it and he told me about it. I went to his doctor since my doc NEVER told me about this miracle of a pill and I just started it today. I've read a lot of great comments about it. I do have borderline blood pressure to start with so was told to check my bp on it daily. I took one full 37.5 pill at 10 a.m. I about 2 -3 hours later I felt a little dizzy. Around 7 pm I've had stomach upset. I'm praying I loose weight on this."

For Weight Loss: "I started Adipex-p on May 10 weighing 292 pounds. It's now May 19 and so far I've lost 9 pounds! I definitely feel like I have more energy and I have more of an endurance when doing cardio. It seems like I'll drop a couple of pounds and then stay level for a couple of days and drop again. So far my only side effect is dry mouth so I'm thirsty all the time. Can't wait to see what the rest of the month brings! 5'6" 5/9/17 292 5/19/17 283"

For Weight Loss: "So I been on this pill for a week and lost 5lbs(188 to 183). I notice I eat less due to the pill suppressing my appetite and I drink plenty of water due to the dry mouth side effect. I do get a burst of energy when I take the pill and no other side effects beside dry mouth. First week no exercise just watching what I eat now second week I started doing 30 mins cardio 3x a week. Will updated in another week."

For Obesity: "MARIE501 I wanted to share my first day on Phentermine. I weighed myself this morning at 225.8. I am a diabetic Type 2 and my A1C levels are 13.3! Yikes. I tried the Low Carb High Fat diet and it worked. I lost 8 lbs in week, but it was extremely difficult to continue. How I feel: This morning after taking pill, I could barely eat! I feel weak, but also energized (weird). I am having dry mouth, but not severe, and blurred vision. Im extremely excited to see how this works for me. Hopefully the diet treats me well. Tips: Make sure you start on like a Thursday or Friday or weekend, that way you can experience the symptoms at home rather than work. CW : 225 1 GW : 200 2 GW: 155 I will update you guys next Friday"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I have tried everything I could to lose weight from pills, to shakes, to teas, to detoxing, to even a lap band, and NONE of it worked. I had hit my all-time high of 230. I went to my fertility doctor and she said I was in bad health to try to have a baby. My cholesterol was high, my blood pressure was high, and to make it worse, I was pre-diabetic. I've been on adipex now for a month and a half. I've lost 35 lbs, barely exercise, but I'm so full of energy that I've completely redone my house, cleaned the garage, and refurbished lots of furniture pieces. I LOVE IT!!! I've not had his much energy since I was in my 20s! I do have about 20 more lbs to go and it will be off in no time."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I originally weighed 374 pounds, and I got all the way down to 304 on my own by excercising. Unfortunately, my weight picked up and I hovered at 320 for years. I became so tired and desperate, I called the doctor fearing weight gain. She put me on Adipex in March, I lost 27 pounds the first month, 12 pounds the next month, I'm still working on my third month for final tally. I am down to 287. Although there were some side effects, the health benefits far outweighed the risks for me. My blood pressure dropped 40 points in the first month alone and I am no longer pre-hypertension. This medicine has been a clean slate for me as I cook my own food and retrain my body to be nourished."

For Weight Loss: "It is May 18 I started this pill 7 days ago, my doc and I decided that I should take it because I am 310 pounds with a height of 5'9. On April 11th I had a total knee replacement so exercise right now is very limited but with this medication is great I jumped on the scale this morning and lost 9 pounds which is awesome, not really any side effects except dry mouth but that's OK because I am drinking a ton of water so that takes care of that. I love it because it takes away my hunger and my taste for sweets which is a huge thing for me. But I eat twice a day and take my pill after my breakfast and love the feeling of losing weight without much of any exercise."

For Weight Loss: "I had a total thyroidectomy last September. From the surgery until now (5/17/17) I had gained another 30lbs. Before my thyroid issues my normal weight was 130-140..I have gained roughly 70-80lbs since Feb 2016. Seen my endocrinologist last Wednesday (5/10/17) they decided to start me on phenermine. I started the pills Friday 5/12/17 starting weight 216lbs. Had to see my primary care doc today (5/17/17) and I lost 4lbs! I can't tell you how good it feels to jump on the scale and see that I lost instead of gained. Day 1 I experienced mild dizzyness, dry mouth, heart racing. I drank a lot of water and by the end of the day I felt fine. if you can stick through your body adjusting to medicine this pill will work for you!"
