Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I am a 32 year old nurse and mom of 5. Before I started taking fastin, I was 269 pounds. I'm only 5foot 4 inches so needless to say I was huge. I was in size 24 jeans. I began taking these as a last ditch effort to help me lose weight and feel better about myself. This week I weighed in at 187. (I recommend only weighing once a week on the same day before you eat or drink anything). I am now in a small size 16, which are big on me. I will agree that it makes your heart feel like it is going to pound out of your chest, but that is how I felt when I exercised. I would be huffing and puffing and barely able to stand. So I feel that in order toactually burn off the fat, you have to pump the blood harder and faster. Works for the obese."

Discouraged; On Nov 4 I went to my doctor as a last resort to see how she can help me reach my goal (130lbs). She prescribed phentermine 37.5mg and today was my first full day on it, will minimal side effects. I am pretty excited about phentermine as I have read awesome reviews. I hope to lose at least 65 lbs. will keep Updating"

For Weight Loss: "Hi! I have hypothyroidism & in march had complete hysterectomy & BSO with other complications....was off work 8wks and I've gained 30lbs since. I'm 5'9 and now 164lbs (used be 135). Today my first pill...I was prepared for side effects & am having jitters, skin tingling, dry mouth & slightly elevated pulse. Dr put me on this because estrogen patches can make thyroid meds less effective, plus my gyno had me on too high a dose of testostone (part of HRT) so double weight gain whammy. I'll post on this every few days, crossing my fingers!"

For Weight Loss: "Hey guys. I'm giving an update from 10/20/16. I am 5"3 and My starting weight was 300 lbs. I am taking phentermine 37.5 mg capsule once a day since then. I am being weighed weekly at the doctors office. The first weight in was on 10/27/16 and I was weighed in at 291. So in one week I lost 9 pounds. Today, 11/3/16 I was weighed at 284.6 pounds. I lost 7 pounds for that week. So total amount of weight loss in a 2 week period I have lost 15.4 pounds. Now I do have extreme dry/cotton mouth and also numb/tingling hands and face. Not sure what the deal is with that but upon looking at the side affects that is a side affect listed. I'll keep updating."

For Weight Loss: "TBaby726 when you start taking the phentermine post it. Yes we can encourage each other. I am very optimistic about losing weight this. In past attempts to lose weight I wasn't realistic & I was looking for something magical to reduce my weight. Take it one step at a time & don't beat yourself up if you don't hit the goal you are aiming for. Just don't give up & stay in the fight."

For Weight Loss: "I am 33 years old and 5'3 and weigh a whopping 300 pounds. I went on phentermine because I wanted help with portion control and weight obviously, and started on 10/20/16. I had started taking Phentermine 15mg capsule once a day for a week, then I started the 37.5 mg capsule once a day till current. When I started on the 15 mg capsule it was great! No major concerns, just dry mouth. Now I am on 37.5 and I have major dry mouth and tingling fingers and lips. I chose to still take it. As of 10/27/16 I got weighed and I now weigh 291. I lost 9 pounds in a week. Yay, its working. I am only eating right but not exercising. I highly recommend it! I only am giving it 9 stars because of the dry mouth and tingling fingers and lips. Good luck"

For Weight Loss: "53 year old female, 5'6, 202 lbs. Lost 30+ lbs in 9 months by eating all "fresh" food (nothing from a package) and walked 10 mins 2x a day (bought a cheap bracelet pedometer that kept me motivated.) Got down to 186. Back up to 202. Asked my Dr if I could try this. Want to get to 170. Started today at 5 am! :) Will keep you posted! Thank you all so much for sharing your stories...it is very comforting to have so many in the same boat! :)"

For Weight Loss: "I'm in the same situation Peaches but haven't started taking the meds yet. I also weigh 227 and am looking to lose 70-85 pounds at 5'3". I've tried so many things and I'm so discouraged. Please keep sharing your experience as I plan to join you and do the same. Maybe we can encourage each other."

For Weight Loss: "I started phentermine this am at 9, Dr put me on 15mg per day. Well I don't do drugs cause they scare me, and so do the side effects. So I pulled the powdered capsule apart and sprinkled 1/2 the powder into my coffee. I'm a sipper so I just keep sipping all day long on a beverage of my choice. Around 11 am i went back and sprinkled the other 1/2 of the capsule on my coffee again. I wanted to get the rest of the pill down before 3pm, afraid of the side effect of insomnia. I already have insomnia pretty bad, I just can't shut off my brain. I will keep splitting the pill to see how I handle the side effects if any. I can say WITHOUT A DOUBT, this pill DOES CONTROL your appetite. I am still not hungry, and very very excited about my journey."

For Weight Loss: "I haven't weighed myself yet because I've only been taking phentermine for 4 days now. I am starting to have the dry mouth, but my main concern is that the past 2 days I've had off and on numbness/tingling in my left arm and left lower leg. I plan on calling my doctor tomorrow about it. It has me kind of nervous, but other than that I actually have more energy and I'm not hungry at all."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Began adipex on 7/7/16, feeling great about it and a little nervous at the same time. I started out at 233 lbs and I am 5'5" so I was pretty chunky.. a 38.77 on the BMI chart to be exact... Well, I changed the way I ate, I only ate salads, meats, nuts and slim jims for the first week and I lost 12 pounds in 7 days. I cut out all sugary drinks, Haven't touched a drink with sugar in it since the 6th of July, so very proud of myself! Well, to cut this short, I now weigh 183 lbs and I'm still losing even though I'm not on this pill anymore. Just stick to your diet & you'll be good to go! It's hard at first, but I promise you get used to it fast & it just becomes natural!! GOOD LUCK!"

For Obesity: "I just started the pill on 10/29/16, I got the pills to help move past this plateau I have reached with my weight loss goals. The first day I had so much energy that I had to force myself to sit down after 8 hours of non-stop movement, cleaning, excising for the day, errands etc. These really do suppress your appetite. I had to force myself to eat boiled eggs for breakfast. I drank A LOT of water due to the dry mouth. By 6pm, I still had only eaten boiled eggs and I felt my mood change, not sure if that was because I had not eaten, but I was VERY moody. The moodiness wore off after I ate dinner. The want for food is just not there. Some issues with sleeping more than 6 hours. Make sure you drink plenty of water!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I was prescribed this medicine about two days ago, every person is different! Although I haven't had any side effects, I did crash after the first day taking this pill! It really curbs your appetite! I am currently 5'2 198 lbs! I'm forcing myself to eat but really no appetite... I'm eating smaller portions and also working out! Will update in another work or so!"

For Weight Loss: "Started taking 15mg 10 days ago and i have lost 10 lbs in 10 days and 2 inches off my belly. Please keep in mind I am walking and working out 30-45min everyday non stop, and have completely changed my diet. No bread, candy, soda, and very few carbs. So I'm not sure if its the pill or my new changes. I am still very hungry sometimes with 15mg. All in all at least it has helped me transition into a lot of good changes for my body. Only side effects are dry mouth and slight insomnia."

For Weight Loss: "I requested this medicine from my doctor after having a tumor in my knee for 4 years, restricting my mobility and causing me to gain a ton of weight. I started on 9/2 and took my 30 day supply. I stopped for about 2 weeks after my supply ran out so that I could use the restroom properly (without constipation). Went to the the doctor last week on 10/21, I'm down 15 pounds already! Got another script, ready to keep this journey going!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this medicine last week so I could lose weight faster and for the first few days the pills were working. They were making me not eat as much and I had a lot of energy. About 3 or 4 days later things got worse, I started getting very angry and agitated at everyone. I ignored this and thought it would go away, but it didn't. I started getting really depressed thoughts and it felt like I had to take this pill or my mood would get worse. The mood swings were getting worse so I put an end to this medicine. Wouldn't recommend this if you already have depression because it can make it worse on you"
