"10 weeks - 50lbs down - BMI 40 to 32 First two weeks, side effects were CrAzY, almost quit. Now outside of my mouth and regular profuse sweating, all is well. Doing a very low calorie low fat diet with raquetball 3 days a week. Hit a plateau, incorporating weights now. 40lbs to go."

"I started Adipex 37.5 a week ago today 04-07-2016 and I have gained 3 pounds??? I don't understand why it's not working I'm using my fitness pal to help track my meals but the most I get out of these is a headache and I'm very moody. I called my doctor but today is Saturday to see why I haven't been so successful as the others that I have been reading about my start date was 268.5 when I weighed myself today and 272 I'm so disappointed I paid $100 for the pills in Detroit, Michigan and my repeat visits are $75. I am not hungry but very gasy. I eat 3 meals per day and have not worked out yet."

"Excellent experience so far, was on for 2 1/2 months and lost ~30 lbs. Really HELPS you control your food intake. You can push through and eat though, but its much much much easier to control yourself when you know you should stop eating but have that bottomless pit feeling in your stomach, or if you are just someone that eats when bored or emotional."

"I was on phentermine several years ago but didn't really try to change my eating habits and so it didn't work. I decided to try it again because I just keep piling on the weight and am slowly killing myself. I've been on it 3 days now and have already lost 8.4 pounds! I know it's mostly water weight right now but seeing that scale move so quickly is such a big motivator. My starting weight was 443.8 and now I'm 435.4. I eat between 1200-2000 calories per day. I've noticed that I'm eating less each day though and it helps take away the cravings so I can make smart decisions about what to eat. I am also watching my carbs and sugar intake. Only side effect I've had is mild dry mouth and not feeling sleepy during the day like I normally do."

"I started taking Adipex on 02.25.2016. My beginning weight was 235 pounds and as of today, I weight 211.4. So far I have lost 23.6 pounds. This medicine does work. My doctor was not happy with my weight gain since I have been out of work due to an injury on the job and prescribed this medicine to me to help me lose weight. Working out does help. I probably would have more weight off of me but dealing with a neck and back injury does limit the ability to workout quite a bit. I have had one side effect from this medicine, dry mouth! I drink a ton of water now! I cannot stand the taste of sodas anymore since I have been drinking water for so long."

"I am a 42 year old woman, 5'0" and weigh 232lbs. I am way too short to be this heavy. Severe depression over the years brought me to this weight. Today is my first day on Aipex 37.5. I took 1/2 pill after having my morning smoothie. I am doing Dr. Oz Day off Diet along with this. So far so good I only felt a bit of a head rush but otherwise the energy is perfect. I'm giving myself until January of next year to complete my full weight loss of 107lbs. I will be walking everyday as well. I will check in with updates every Monday. Hope I can help folks here as well."

"I started taking the adipex Jan 15 2016 my starting weight was 232.7 and now It has been 3 weeks and I have only lost 5 lbs but I do have the dry mouth and no desire to eat which I make myself eat at least a small meal daily if I remember. I am hoping to get down to 180 so I am going to start exercising. I think everybody has a different experience with this pill but I am expecting great results I will update again in a couple of weeks!!!"

"When I started Adipex on 1/15/16 I weighed 224 lbs this is the heaviest I've ever been. My doctor said I hit a plateau. I work in a doctors office and when I went to work on 1/26/16 I weight 208 lbs! I weighed myself on 2 other scales because I couldn't believe it. I wasn't hungry at all but I knew my body needed nutrients so I have been having protein shakes. I drank 1 in the morning and one in the evening and I took a multivitamin everyday as well. I have literally lost 16lbs in 2 weeks. Excited to see what I weigh at the end of the month..."

"I am 21, 5ft .5in female and I got to my heaviest point, weighing in at 155.2. I have never been more than 130. I tried weight watchers and I worked out for about 45-1hr every day and nothing was helping...anyway, I went to my dr and he said he felt I reached a plateau, where it was very hard for me to lose the weight. I was proscribed Adipex tablets on 11/17/15 and today, 12/1/15, I am down 11.2lbs. That is 11.2lbs in exactly 2 weeks!! After losing about 5lbs I felt so much better already. I have not had any horrible side effects. I have dry mouth if I don't drink much and I barely ever eat anything. I have to force myself to eat. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about it. I definitely would recommend it! Will update in 2 weeks!"

"I took adipex for 6 months... my starting weight was 210.0 ... ending weight was 165.0 ... that was a year ago. This is MY advice. #1. You may not FEEL like eating... but do it anyways... or you'll slow your metabolism down to a crawl and stop losing weight. Just watch what you eat!! #2. Take vitamins!!!! By the time I hit 165# - my hair was starting to fall out, I couldn't focus, and I was constantly tired - sometimes I'd nearly pass out... because "I didn't feel hungry" and just wasn't really eating more than 500 calories a day. Even sitting STILL your body burns way more than that! #3. Be prepared to gain some of that back when you come off the pill. I wasn't prepared at all - and I gained it all right back. Still, great pill!"

"I started the pill on 10/9/15 I was 172.2 at the doctors, I'm a 24 year old female, 4"11 tall, weighed myself today 10/29/15 and I'm 11 pounds lighter! I'm 161.3! No cravings for sweets which I have/had a HORRIBLE sweet tooth, stopped eating fast food as much, cut it out more than half, can't wait to see more progress. I work 6 days a week as a stylist and have a 5 year old in school full time, working out is hard but I try to fit 30 min in either in the morning or at night, I use myfitnesspal to track my calorie intake, 1200 a day mostly less, dry mouth but as long as I drink my water all day I'm good. Will update next month!"

"Oct. 16th- 5'8 256 lbs Male Oct. 26th- 240 lbs even. 16 lbs - 10 days Loss of appetite which makes it easy to control how, what and when you eat. Dry mouth only if you don't drink lots of water which is absolutely necessary to dispose the fat your loosing. 1/2 pill- modest energy. Whole pill- bit shaky but I love shaky. Feels like a miracle is happening. Getting my life back slowly but surely."

"I started on 8/24/15 as of today 9/6 I have lost 10 lbs, just under 2 weeks. I only take half a pill which is just fine for me. I have very little appetite, I force myself to eat. I'm staying under 1200 calories per day, more like 800. My cravings for sweets are gone! This is strange for me because I love sweets. I'm not eating any bread or drinking any soda. Lots of water, fruits, veggies, salads and protein. I have not exercised yet but plan to soon. I could not sleep the first few days and dry mouth is starting to kick in, it's tolerable. My goal is to lose 60 lbs by the end of the year."

"I took Adipex (37.5) from February 2012-April 2012 and in that span of time I went from 300 lbs down to 170 lbs. That is a loss of 130 lbs. I hardly ate anything but grilled chicken, fruit, and powerade. I walked at least 2 miles everyday. I got Pregnant at the end May 2012 so I had to stop taking it. My baby is now 2 years and 5 months and my weight has gone back up to a very uncomfortable 240 lbs. I still exercise regularly but not as often as I should. I have an appointment in 3 weeks to get adipex again and I am hoping and praying that I have the same results as before. This is a great aid in loosing weight for anybody who struggles with loosing weight by diet alone. Wish me luck...will update in 90 days!!!"

"I started taking adipex 37.5 on 6/23/15. My starting weight was 301. As of 06/25/15 I was at 291! Wow! I am very impressed because I have done NO exercise at all. On the other hand, I have NO desire to eat throughout the day. I eat fruit before I take it and drink plenty of water (helps with the dry mouth too), but today (06/26/15) I am not feeling like myself. I was very jittery and weak. I realized that for the past 4 days I've only eaten 2 bags of chips, 2 bananas, and some grilled chicken. I ate something today and immediately starting feeling better. I think I'm going to try to force myself to eat more because my body is not reacting well."
