Reviews for Phentermine

Sort by:

For Weight Loss: "I originally started this on January 8, 2016 at a weight of 223 lbs. and ended it sometime around August 2016. I started with 15mg and increased to 30mg then decreased to come off of it. I lost over 60 pounds during that time and then lost a little more after coming off of the medication. I maintained my weight with a 5 lb fluctuation. Just recently (Feb. 2017) I was put back on the medication to help me drop weight before possible surgery. I was instantly put on 30mg. I started at 160 lbs and as of today I'm at 145 lbs. The goal is to be at 130-135 lbs. I haven't had any bad side affects other than random bursts of energy, dry mouth, the nasty taste in my mouth, And the lack of bowel movements."

For Obesity: "So I started Phentermine last week I was 238 pounds. The only side effect I have is I'm very thirsty and I didn't sleep very well last night I'm guessing it was because of the pills but I'm getting ready to go to sleep now. I go to the doctor next week and will let you know my updated weight. good luck ladies"

For Weight Loss: "I am a 28 year old female at 5'5" I weighed in at 277 lbs on 03/ 10/17 I have not had any severe side effects, dry mouth is all. Just drink lots of water. I exercise daily with interval training. I drink NOTHING but water and eat better. I keep my calories at about 1000 a day with 3 meals a day and a few snacks in between. I go back to see the Doc on 4/10/17 I cheated and stepped on the scale today and have lost a total of 21lbs at 256. You can do it! It is not a diet, it is a lifestyle change, if you don't change your habits you will gain all of it back and more. Can't wait to see what the next couple of months bring. Goal weight of 150lbs!"

For Obesity: "Howdy, I had gastric sleeve surgery on 09/11/2015 (starting weight 506). I lost 82 lbs in just 6 months. From that point on it's only been about 10 lbs every 3-4 months. My last visit to the Dr. was on 03/20/2017 at that time I weighed 395 lbs. He then put me Phentermine 37.5. I take half a pill at 8 am and then another half at 2 pm. This pill is great at stopping the cravings I would have every 2 hours. Now I am not full of energy, but I'm not as tired as I normally am. The only side effect so far is dry mouth. I think this is going to work I'm excited to see how much I've lost in a month. Keep you posted :)"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking adipex on March 19th, weighing 256 lbs (5'10" 32 year old female). I took it every day around lunch time ( took it for only 12 days).. Its now Thursday and I haven't taken it since last Friday because I still have NO appetite.. I have to make myself eat.. No side effects besides extreme dry mouth, I drink over a gallon of water a day.. and I weighed myself today and I'm 238. So I'm down 18 lbs with only using it for 2 weeks.. I find this medicine extremely helpful and am so thankful someone told me about it!"

For Weight Loss: "I am 28 years old, 5'8 and my starting weight was 285lbs. I gained a tremendous amount of weight during my pregnancy and after I gave birth to my son, I've been struggling the last year 1/2 to get it off. I'm no stranger to eating healthy, and working out, but could not seem to get this weight off for the life of me. I began taking Phentermine on Saturday, April 1st and as of today I have lost 10 lbs, with a weight of 274.8. I work out on Saturday's Monday's, Tuesday's & Thursdays doing high impact cardio, and I have also been consistent with a diet of about 1000 calories a day or less. No processed foods, soda, sweets, breads, pastas...basically none of the foods that make you fat, lol. I'd like to lose another 10lbs before my follow-up."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking adipex exactly 4 weeks ago today and I am officially down 22 pounds. I started out at 5 foot seven and 184 pounds and as of this morning I now weigh 162 pounds. This pill has given me an immense amount of energy and has actually improved my mood and my overall sense of self worth. It really is a miracle worker however all good things have downfalls as well. I have become extremely constipated and I have to take a stool softener and MiraLAX just to consistently go to the bathroom. The first three weeks I had the most horrible cotton mouth I've ever experienced before and in the first two weeks I had the most awful taste in my mouth. Most importantly I've just recently started having some problems with my blood pressure going up and I actually had tachycardia last night while I was at work. I'm already on a blood pressure medication but I had it under control before I was allowed to start this pill. I am not sure if it's the medication because it was literally just an onset with the blood pressure and tachycardia. I also just got off of antibiotics for tonsillitis. I live and work in a very high stress environment and let's just say I was at work having a very bad night when I this happened. Overall, I do you recommend this medication but only if you do you seriously need it. I have a family history of obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure so I was wanting to nip it in the bud before it got to that point."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine in February weighing 207. As of April 2nd I'm down to 191. The doctor prescribed topamax since I have been in the same weight for 2 weeks. Today is my first night taking the topamax. I was unsure of taking it because of the side effects. Hopefully it goes good this week."

For Weight Loss: "I started Phentermine on April 2nd. I took a half of pill. Had some dizziness but tons of energy. The type of energy that motivates you to clean and work out. I have never been successful losing weight. I am 5'5, 200lbs and 39 years old. I was-concerned with this med because I take medicine for high blood pressure. So far today, April 4th, 2017 my blood pressure is normal, I have worked out 2 days in a row and am down from 200lbs to 196.6. I was in disbelief when I saw this. I know it is mostly water weight but I have little appetite, have been drinking at least 70oz. Of water per day and making healthy food choices. No side effects yet!"

For Obesity: "Update from my last post, it's been exactly a week since my first pill of 30mg and I'm down 11lbs. From 244 to 233 I am 28yrs old and 5'5". I have noticed that I am balanced out now. At first I was kind of numb to emotions and kinda felt like a zombie but now I'm back to myself. Only side effect I see physically is a small rash on my upper arm that appeared on the 3rd day of taking these pills. But I"m sure taking benadryl would get rid of that. I agree with others this pill really helps you forget about the obsession I used to have with food and thinking all day about what I am going to eat next. Now I eat 4-5 times a day small meals of 200 to 300 calories. Every 2.5 hrs or so."

For Weight Loss: "I started phen about 6 months ago. Weight was 209. I'm 4'11, so ya. Very fat for my height. The doctor was worried an put me on it for 3 months. I lost 10+ pounds the first 2 months. With low carb, low cal. An only 40 carbs max a day. An walking 45 minutes every day. I only ate 2 eggs for breakfast. An 1/2 cup of coffee. Atkins for lunch. Lots of plain tea and water. An lean meat an veggies for dinner. Last of the 3 months I hardly lost any weight. So I went off it for 3 months. Gained 3 lbs back even though I kept food diary. An kept working out. Now I'm on it again for round 2. My goal weight is 130. My doctor said it is a process. I can't seem to get under 170. No matter what I do. An my current weight fluctuates between 170 an 173."

For Weight Loss: "1 month results, started Phentermine 37.5 (oblong blue speckled pills) on 3/3/17 at 225 even. Today 4/3/2017 I had my 1 month weigh in at 209 even. I lost 16 lbs! This pill truly does feel like magic, it makes it very easy to stick to a healthy/clean diet because your cravings are literally gone. I went from thinking about food every minute of the day to hardly remembering to eat. I do make sure I eat at least 1000-1200 cal a day, sometimes closer to 1400. I am an avid runner but my schedule doesn't always permit, so I make sure to try and walk at least 45 minutes a day....food is a lot of lean meat, fruit and vegetables. The only side effect that is inevitable is dry mouth. I will update next month!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I lost about 40lbs through changing my eating habits and regular exercise over a period of about 18 months, but I had hit a plateau. I was referred to a weight loss clinic by my co-workers, who are having great success with phentermine. After my first week of taking phentermine 37.5, I was constantly famished, and tired. At the 3 week marker (down 6 lbs), I requested to switch to Adipex. I noticed a difference the very first dose. I'm on day 3 of Adipex, and it seems to do a much more consistent job of curbing my appetite, and I don't feel sleepy. I'm not overly energetic, but also not jittery, and I'm not getting the headaches. Trying it for a week before possibly checking into another option. So far, I am feeling optimistic."

For Weight Loss: "I started with 15mg capsules as my Dr. said that the higher does(30 or 37.5mg) can make it easier to gain the weight back after you are off the pill in 3 months- she will allow no more than 3 months on the pills- I did not find that 15mg really helping me much so I asked her to increase me to the 37.5- I have had no side effects with 15mg so I am a little bit worried after having horrible side effects with Contrave- I plan to do half in the am and half in the afternoon with the 37.5 and see how that goes- I am wondering if I should take a break when we go on vaca for a week in April?"

For Obesity: "I went to my Doctor today and he finally prescribed phentermine 37.5mg. My starting weight is 292 on 3/29/17, I'm 5'6, 33 year old female, BMI 47.1 obese. I'll update my weight next week to let you know how much I have lost in my 1st week and if I experienced any side effects. I have a lot of coworkers and friends who took that medication before. All of them had success stories and the only side effect they complained about was dry mouth. I've tried multiple diets and OTC pills in the past. I would lose 10-15 lbs and then go back to my old bad habits. I know the pill is not the safest and best option but I need a jump start and definitely control over my cravings and appetite "

For Weight Loss: "WARNING ⚠️ I need to make sure that everybody realises how absolutely poisonous, toxic and dangerous this medicine is! Not only are the side effects really unpleasant and can lead to serious health complications; the worst part is the damage it will cause your cardiovascular system and the addiction you will develop! It is similar to 'poor mans cocaine' ⚠️⚠️⚠️ STAY AWAY!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking Phentermine 37.5mg early January 2017. As of today, 3/26/17 I have lost a little of 30 lbs. I don't really exercise, but I am a stay at home mom of four so that keeps me pretty busy. But I did cut my calories to around 1,000, maybe a little more, per day. My only problem with this drug is the bladder side effects. I feel like I don't empty my bladder all the way and seem to have to use the bathroom more than I used to. I'll be starting to take half a tablet next week and then stop the drug all together by the following week. Praying I can keep up with my weight and not gain any back. :)"
