Reviews for Phentermine

Sort by:

For Weight Loss: "I have been taking this medication for many years. The key is that it has to be paced. If you take it too frequently, it becomes worthless because you build up a tolerance for it. You can become moody and agitated. Finding a lifestyle change and not relying on a drug to stay thin. I take it very intermittently, by that I mean every 3 weeks to every month and a half as needed. I save it for my temptation days when I'm gonna need it the most. My weight has not changed from the 75 lbs. I originally lost 10 years ago."

For Weight Loss: "Started Phen 37.5 .....3/1/17 I have dry mouth off and on but I hydrate excessively, pee a lot and chew gum. Absolutely no other extreme side effects. I function well off about 6 hrs of sleep. I do naturally wake easier than before in the morning but I'm adjusting to make it work for my daily routine. 6 days in & 6 pds down !! I'm following a ketogenic diet and doing light workouts. So far so good !"

For Obesity: "I first started taking the pill when I heard about it from a friend. I was iffy of course because results may vary. I saw my doctor discussed with her why I was requesting the pills, although she did advice me that everyone is different some people may lose some people may gain at the beginning, which just made me feel a little scared I mean after all my intention was to loose not gain .....So my starting weight was 225 I'm 5'2 and 26 years old mother of 3 . I started around November 2015 with a low dose first two weeks I was extremely exhausted no energy but I did notice some of my pre pregnancy clothes which I have not worn for quite some time actually fit... Current weight 149 January 2017."

For Weight Loss: "I started Phen on March 2nd. I weighed in at 171 on March 1st. So far I'm down 4.5 pounds and feel great! I've been consuming 800-1000 calories per day which I have to force myself to remember to eat because I NEVER feel any hunger. The only side effects I'm experiencing are a little dry mouth and not being able to sleep. I take the pill (37.5) between 6-7am but I still have trouble sleeping at 10 (hopefully this will pass). Also, not sure if it's the pill but it's improved my "mood". I'm definitely feel less anxious throughout the day which I like. Need to talk to my doctor about that... Anyway, good luck everyone. Hopefully in 2-3 months I'll drop down to 130-135 and continue this journey with a proper diet and exercise."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started this medication on 2/18/2017 at a starting weight of 323 lbs (I'm 5'11"). I've tried and tried to lose weight and it just was not happening. My doctor prescribed me this medication and put me on a strict 1600 calorie diet. So far I have lost 12 lbs in my 14 days on this medication. I do work out everyday and lift weights as well. If you combine a good diet and exercise with this medication I believe it most definitely will pay off."

For Obesity: "I took the 37.5 mg and it was great! I didn't feel hungry at all even sometimes I can't eat more than just a very small amount of food. I was always thirsty however it's not a problem you can just drink a lot of water which is great! Bad mouth smell, but u can chew a gum! I took it for around three months and I went down form 190lb to 169lb which I lost 21lb with low carb diet and NO exercise. However, I gained everything back! But because I went back to my horrible unhealthy habits like Mac, in n out, pizza .... So if you want to take it go for it, but it's not a magic you should CHANGE your habits and keep eating healthy even after you stop taking it."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I have been taking these pills on and off since last year. When I am strict with my diet I see amazing results. My body has adapted to them, so that is my only downfall. They are no as affective as when I 1st started them. To anyone having side effects, I was having terrible headaches and dry mouth. My doctor offers name brand and generic pills. The generic pills give me massive side effects, I can only take name brand. If you are having side effects take 1/2 pill in the am and the other 1/2 pill late morning. That way you can split the dose, it will stay in your system longer and may help with evening crashes."

For Weight Loss: "Everyone talks about this amazing energy boost I have yet to experience that it does curb my appetite but it's also a lot of will power once some pounds came off I was more motivated in the gym I lost 30 pounds the first time around so was 230 stopped taking them and gained 21 pounds back but I also have pretty bad depression and was going though relationship issues and literally didn't step foot in the gym for months it works if you put in the work too"

For Weight Loss: "I am currently on the medicine right now. As of last year January 2016 I was about 200.7 lbs. Currently, I am weighing in at 158. My goal weight is 130, but I'm taking it slowly. I'm 5'2" so that would be my ideal healthy weight. I really enjoy it and appreciate my doctor working with me and allowing me to try this prescription out. It was the worse feeling ever feeling that big and trying on clothes was the worse as well. I would find myself in tears. With this medication it's helped me become more active as well to the point where I go to the gym 5-6 times a week now. If I'm off the med for a week or 2 I'm still fine. It just controls my hungry, but I've noticed that it doesn't effect my performance in the gym because it's helped me build."

For Weight Loss: "Started this medication exactly 1 week ago and I'm down 7.4 lbs (237.6 down to 230.2). I was given the 37.5 mg pills but have only been taking half. My doc told me to take 1/2 pill as long as I could if it was still working for me. It has 100% curbed my appetite. I literally have no urge to eat which is so unlike me! And when I do eat I am full so much sooner. I am drinking a ton of water with it. First 2 nights I had a lot of trouble sleeping but I learned to take my pill before 8am and I'd be fine. I have had constipation which still hasn't really resolved but I'm just going to increase my water and hope that improves. Will keep posting with my weekly progress!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I gained a lot of weight after having my 1st son and a failed IUD. My doc prescribed Adipex 37.5 and I took it 5-6 days per week for 5 months. In the beginning it gave me extreme dry mouth and it was hard to fall asleep because of the energy boost but it suppressed my appetite A LOT and if I ate to much it made me vomit. I started working out slowly a few times per week and by the time I stopped taking it I was working out 5 days a week. I am 5'8 and my start weight was 195 my end weight was 137.After my 2nd son I lost the weight easily and got back down to 140 but after my daughter I gained and could not lose anything, my energy was low and I could not control my appetite. As soon. As I am done breastfeeding I will be taking Adipex again"

For Weight Loss: "I started on 1/25/17 on 30 mg. As of today, I have lost 2 lbs? I seem to still have urges to snack. I thought with being a little over 30 days the results would be more effective. Im wondering if the 37.5mg is what I should be on. I have had lab work done to confirm no issues w/ Thyroid, etc. and all is fine."

For Weight Loss: "After a bad break up & a hard time at work, put on 40 pounds over 7 months but then I went from 314# to 219# over 2 years. Then things got crazy again and I went from 219 to 259 on 2/17/17 when I got weighed at the dr's office. He knew how hard I worked to drop those original 96 pounds & wanted to get me back on track. Started Phentermine 37.5 on 2/20, it has been 5 days & I'm down 8.6 pounds. Suppresses my appetite, don't want to snack or crave junk food. I have to literally make myself eat -- unfamiliar territory after my gluttony these last 7 months! Drinking 128 oz of water a day. Meals are lean & around 800 calories. Side effects: Insomnia & mild constipation. Hoping it continues this way -- would love to drop 30 pounds at my 1 month mark!"

For Weight Loss: "5ft start weight 166. I Started taking Phentermine 45 mg capsule on February 16, 2017. I have lost 5lbs as of today, February 24, 2017. Side effects; dry mouth and it feels like something is stuck in my throat, but I'm sure this comes from the dryness. The pills make you drink plenty of water (which is needed). It does suppress your appetite a lot, so I drink Premier protein shakes as replacement meals. I exercise daily (kickboxing, zumba, and little weights). I will continue to post my results. Let's kick butt and see results!"

For Obesity: "It's been a week on the meds. I am loving it. Little dry mouth. But no other side effects. I've lost 7lbs. I've been to the gym almost everyday. Eating low calorie diet. It definitely gives you energy. BP has been good. I have been checking it at least 3x a day. I'm only planning on being on meds for 6 months. I hope it doesn't take longer than that to get to goal."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started phentermine capsules end of August 2016 weight was about 197-199lbs starting out. I tried to lose weight for 2 years I had never been this heavy & felt miserable everyday cut out pop was drinking only water & attempted to diet with no success. Tried the tablets before 37.5 mg gained 10lbs so this time my primary doctor called in capsules to the pharmacy, within the first week I lost around 7lbs which I'm sure was water weight. First month I lost 25lbs give or take then the 2nd month I didn't lose so I went off of them for 2 weeks started again lost a couple more lbs. I am now 165lbs Feb. 2017 I haven't lost since but I have maintained. I also never exercised. 500 calories the first 3 weeks on them with breaks here & there."
