"I have tried everything I could to lose weight from pills, to shakes, to teas, to detoxing, to even a lap band, and NONE of it worked. I had hit my all-time high of 230. I went to my fertility doctor and she said I was in bad health to try to have a baby. My cholesterol was high, my blood pressure was high, and to make it worse, I was pre-diabetic. I've been on adipex now for a month and a half. I've lost 35 lbs, barely exercise, but I'm so full of energy that I've completely redone my house, cleaned the garage, and refurbished lots of furniture pieces. I LOVE IT!!! I've not had his much energy since I was in my 20s! I do have about 20 more lbs to go and it will be off in no time."

"I originally weighed 374 pounds, and I got all the way down to 304 on my own by excercising. Unfortunately, my weight picked up and I hovered at 320 for years. I became so tired and desperate, I called the doctor fearing weight gain. She put me on Adipex in March, I lost 27 pounds the first month, 12 pounds the next month, I'm still working on my third month for final tally. I am down to 287. Although there were some side effects, the health benefits far outweighed the risks for me. My blood pressure dropped 40 points in the first month alone and I am no longer pre-hypertension. This medicine has been a clean slate for me as I cook my own food and retrain my body to be nourished."

"I've been on adipex for 11 months now and I've dropped 117 pounds! I didn't exercise only took the pill and cut out everything bad (even though it taste good, doesn't always make it healthy for you) eating wise. Sugar, flour, bread, pastas, FASTFOOD, and even eating after a certain time. I started eating healthy snacks every two hours, ( egg whites, cottage cheese, bag of steamers vegetables, lots of chicken, belvita snacks, carrots and peanut butter etc,and drinking lots of water! Do this and I promise you'll drop weight immediately."

"Started taking 12 days ago, starting weight of 256.6lb & today 250.0lb. Side effects: increased energy which I absolutely love, suppressed appetite which is good, dry mouth which means I drink a lot of water which also is good. Considering I struggled with drinking enough water daily, this changed that. I still get hungry, but only 2-3 times a day, once I start to eat I'm full very quickly. A simple snack like fruit or raw veggies quickly takes the hunger away. I eat a sensible dinner with the family. I've completely lost interest in soda & sweets. I do take a multivitamin. Stay smart, watch what you know you should be eating, exercise & live healthy. You can do it, this helps."

"on 1/24/2017 I started taking 1 pill of Adipex 37.5mg once a day. I started at 262lbs. As of today 3/8/17 I now weigh 247lbs. It gives me energy without the jitters. I also suppresses my appetite I force myself to eat 5 small meals a day. I also do at least a 30 min workout 4 times a week. Adipex works! My normal doctor will not prescribe this medication so I see a weight loss doctor. I pay 100.00 a month for the meds."

"I started taking the apidex in January. I was prescribe 1 per day. My original weight was 305. I went for my follow up on 1/27/17. From 1/21/17 untill 1/27/17 I had lost 2.5 lbs in 6 days. My next visit is on 2/28/17 I will let you know if I lost any more weight. I have not done any exercise but I do have a lot more energy. I can walk without giving out of breath. So I hope I have lost more."

"I took this med about 8 years ago. Don't really remember how I felt taking it but after 2 mths and not losing any weight to warrant the purchase price of $30/mth, I stopped. I am giving it a new try. I haven't noticed any bad side effects that stand out or bother me. I believe the med curbs cravings and I usually don't feel like even eating dinner after work. But, that being said I haven't lost any weight yet. I need to get my daily meals back on track and continue the med and then I will update again in 1 week."

"I started taking Adipex On Jan 1. 2014 until Feb 1 2014 - I lost 30 pounds even. I did only 30 minutes of Cardio a day. That was just brisk walking. MY side effects were; cotton mouth, extreme loss of appetite, I lost my ass , I had extreme energy, couldn't sleep, I was very focus, I had a pleasant attitude but quickly irritated, fast heart beat , blurry vision every now and again. My doctor told me that with adipex it helps you curb your hunger but when you work out it burns double calories. I was 180 - and went to 149. whe I stopped the weight never came back and it became hard for me to eat as much as I use to. I got pregnant and had a baby Jan 29 2015 - I am 180 pounds as of 2/4/17 and I started adipex again. Same symptoms and I'm losing a lot again"

"It is very good at suppressing your habits, but I do find that it leaves dry mouth, hard to have bowel movements and it does affect your eyes."

"I am 227 lbs and 5'3". I started taking the Adipex 37.5 today (11-18-16) at 7:30 am. I could tell that I took it because I was very talkative, and not energetic as in bouncing off the walls or nothing, but more like I actually had the energy to do my work and I was really focused on it. Done more today at work than I done all week. Only thing I have a problem with is when I ate it felt like I slowed down, and all my energy was gone. Maybe it want be like this the whole time. I will keep ya'll updated on my progress."

"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!"

"I started taking it today and have seen a dramatic difference in cravings...they are non existent..I can't even finish my meals because I have no urge too. I see with this medication I am going to have to make myself eat. The energy boost it a major plus and because the energy boost is so strong in the morning I am going to change to morning workout for the duration of this medication. I previously lose 60 on my own but the doctor said I needed it to come off quicker. I'm 5,5 , 255 lbs...will be updating regularly.."

"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."
