"I started Adipex on March 21,2018 and so far I have lost 8 pounds. I'm excited. Now I am at a plateau and haven't lost or gain but my clothes are fitting loser. My start weight was 265lb and my goal weight is 170lb. I'm really looking forward to getting under the 200 mark. Was getting a bit discouraged because I just stop loosing until I read these reviews and I can say I feel much better. I won't give up. I will continue with my weight loss journey. The only side effect I have with the Adipex is dry mouth which is a good thing because it's made me drink more water lol. I have more energy everyday and the cravings are less especially at night. I will continue to keep u updated as the days go by."

"I started adipex on Jan 16 2018..weighing in @ 227lbs and a 41"waist.then I lost 16lbs in a month and lost 4" off my waist. Leaving me at 211lbs 36" waist. 2 weeks later I'm was 205lbs and desperate to get out of the 200s club. I stop taking the pills for a Month because I felt like my weight loss was at a plateau and for that month I was off the pill I didn't lose nor gain. weight. So I did more research about the pills and it said to keep taking it even if it felt like it wasn't working, and I'm glad I did! Now today April 8th 2018 I am proud to say I am 198.3lbs and officially out of the 200 club!!!! And I will continue to push for my goal weight of 170lbs (I changed my goal weight to 170 from 160 by the way) I will continue to keep you guys updated. God bless!!!"

"I tried this for weight loss but after 3 days that was secondary to its affect on the fibromyalgia. What I had thought was needing-new-knees pain had actually been Fibro! I no longer needed 9 hours of sleep to feel rested - 7 would do! I no longer had to take longer and longer breaks between shorter and shorter times spent doing chores. I could get through a shower and dressing without stopping to rest 2-3 times. No more Fibro fog. No more Fibro flu. No bad side effects either. AND I lost weight. Until I switches from tablet to caplet then it was as if I wasn’t taking it. Everything went back to pre-phentermine days. And no one takes notice. The drug has a bad rap. Only one doctor so far is willing to prescribe it so I can lose weight. After I lose it....."

"Today is 3 weeks on adipex symptoms have pretty much subsided but at first I was having trouble sleeping, I had a little bit of increased heart rate and random numbness in my arms and hands. I also still feel cold a lot but nothing unmanageable. My start weight was 182lb I'm down to 168lb goal weight is 130lb. I've cut my calorie intake way down no breads or sugars no pop. The medicine does give me a really bad dry mouth which is good for me because I want nothing but water and lots of it! I do still feel hungry on adipex which is good but it's cut my cravings and my appetite so I eat small portions of good healthy meals and healthy snacks in between! I'm excited to see where I am at 8 weeks"

"I'm on day 4. Don't have increased heartbeat or fast heart beat at all. I'm 5'8 1/2 . I went from 318lb to 312lb. I've noticed my cravings for sugary foods and fast food have increased majorly. I eat less than 1000. Doctor has me on a 1400 çalorie diet though. I'm just not hungry but I eat fruit and drink a lot of water throughout the day. Going to start exercising to get results faster."

"Started Adipex March 8th, weight 182.5lb One week later my weight is 176lb. Wow! My stomach lets me know when it needs food by making noise. When I eat a meal, I eat about a fourth of what I used too. You feel full fast."

"I started Adipex 37.5 3/8/18. So I've taken it for 3 days so far. Side effects so far are increased heart rate, this was a little scary to me at first but apparently its common. My resting heart rate went from 71 to 90. Also, increased urinating when I haven't actually increased my water intake at all yet or when I hardly drink anything. I'm also a lot more emotional and cry easily, hopefully this goes away soon. I have so much more energy, like I can't do things fast enough, wasn't tired enough to fall asleep but when I did fall asleep, it was easier to wake up after only 5 hours and make though the next day with plenty of energy. I'll come back and update total weight loss at my 4 week check in. Starting weight was 236, female 5'3" size 18 pants. Goal is 200, size 14 pants. I hold my weight well and I'm pear shape so I'm happy with my body at a size 14."

"I am starting week 4 on Adipex today and so far have had good results. My SW was 216, I’m 5’6. My GW is 180. I haven’t had many side effects at all besides a lot of dry mouth. I cut down my daily calorie intake tremendously as I used to go out to eat/get take out all the time for dinner and on lunch breaks at work. I have been drinking premier protein shakes for breakfast and lunch with a snack in between. I have been working out every other day with an exception to a few slacked days. The scale has been very back and forth which is making me a little discouraged but I know as I am losing water weight, etc, I am also gaining muscle by working out more. Starting week 4 I am at 207. That’s 9lbs in 3 weeks! I have also worn a pair of jeans that now fit like a glove (actually a little loose) that used to be too tight on me. I’m happy that I’m starting to see results in the mirror but the scale gets me discouraged at times. I still have one more refill for another month!"

"Although I carry my weight extremely well I'm still considered obese and have been for a while. I'm 5-2, 212 lb. I carry it everywhere, thank goodness. I've been working out for over a month, eating good, and tracking everything on my Fitbit but I just could not seem to budge. I'm hoping this medication works as good as everyone is saying. My plan is to only take it for 4 months, and to only take a half a pill. I can't handle a full one. It was amazing for my workout this morning though, crazy energy . I'll check back in at my one month mark."

"In 2010 I was 42 years old-5'10" 272 lbs a size 22-24, 42DD & 9/xxl even scrubs xxl-xxxl were snug on me. I did the pills for less than 6 months lost 18lbs the first month. After that between 11-15 pds a month. I never changed what I ate only how much I ate. Fast forward 8 years...I'll be 50 in a few months, my 36 yo drop dead gorgeous man has told me I look better than most 20 somethings out there. I am 153 pounds, 34D-5/med, medium everything else, size 6 skinny jeans...I haven't taken a pill in years, my food intake adjusted and I reached my natural-meant to be weight and I look and feel great."

"I used addipex for the 3 months lost 30 lbs the first 2 weeks I had side effects of dizziness, sweating, insomnia, rapid hear rate, but I had a lot of energy and the side effects only lasted 2 weeks. I cut back on going out to eat ,and ate lean cuisine, drank only water or coffee w sweetner or unsweet tea. This pill is amazing and can't wait to go back on it again in 6 months!! Cost was only $40.00"

"I’m so envious of those of you that this worked on! I have completed 2 months of this pill daily and nothing. I did get some side effects the first week (faster heart rate, jittery, dry mouth, muscle clenching) and felt I was eating less but clearly not. I still feel just as hungry and I’m on the 37.5mg dose! My dr told me to take a pill and a half to see if that helps and so far it has not . I am so depressed as my eating is out of control I am literally always hungry which is why I needed help with the pill in the first place. I just wish I’d had the luck you all have had."

"I took adipex in August of 2015. Starting weight 232lb. Lost 16lbs the first month and got off the pill. I kept up my workout routine and lost and additional 17lbs the following month. I kept the weight off until December 2016. Well its September 26, 2017 and I'm back up to 230lbs. Today is my first day back on Adipex. I plan to eat better, drink more water and exercise a lot more than I did the first time to get better results!!! So excited. My goal weight is 175lbs.... wish me luck!"

"Today is day 7 taking it. Only lost one pound so far, but it might be giving me a little bit of extra energy. I am 60 so maybe it takes longer to take effect in post menopausal women, idk. I am 205 and 5'5" so hoping to lose 50 lbs. I will keep a positive attitude and hope it kicks in better soon."

"One month today went to Dr for refill. Down 16 pounds!! I do waitress so that helps constantly walking at work. Adipex just keeps me from constantly thinking about food. First couple days restless can't sleep...learn to take it first thing in the morning so by bed time its ok."

"Well, I am back for my one month results. Starting weight 6/20/17 - 324. Today's weight -297. That's right!!! 27 lbs!!!. I have started to watch my calorie intake, I walk 3 -4 days with my kids, then the other days I am at the gym doing cardio and toning. I stopped drinking pop. I am up to a gallon and half of water a day. I cut the carbs way back. I have tons of energy, I feel great and everyone tells me that they see so much of a change in my appearance. I would recommend this to anyone, as long as you are looking for a lifestyle change. Not just a quick weight loss. (I have had friends who took it for fast weight loss, lost half the weight I have and gained it all back when they stopped)! This is meant to help with changing your life."
