"Hi I’m a female 5”1’ weighing in at 186lbs, but you wouldn’t guess that by looking at me because I’m all boobs lol. I was down to 165lb when my ex and I broke up and when we got back together we both started stuffing our faces and in the 6 months it took me to get 20lbs off, it took me 6 months to put it back on. I am starting to loos weight again and I am on day 8 weighing in at 181 lbs. I am on a strict 1,200 calorie diet and exercising on my elliptical. I am getting married and going on my honeymoon cruise in May (6 months) so my goal is to be 140lbs by that time!"

"It hasn’t been a month yet, I started adipex one tablet daily, never believed there is such pill to help me lose weight because I was tired of everything I tried, nothing worked out, until I started this miracle pill, as I said within 3 weeks I went down from 190 lbs to 169 lbs unbelievable!!! I'm so happy with my result, my goal is to go down to 155 lb or around... I’m 5’6”"

"I started Adipex on 11/8/2018, I am 5'5 , I weighed in at 243lb at the time. It is now my 5th day and I have already lost 9lbs. I am only taking half of the pill because the Dr. thought I should gradually increase after seeing what side effects I would have. At this time but have following a 1200 calorie intake. Side effects have been dry mouth and blurry vision and high heart rate but it is tampering down now that my body is adjusting. I love the pill but the only downside is the blurry vision. I will continue to take to see if this stops if not I will just follow good eating habits and hit the gym"

"Starting Weight: 276lb 40 yrs female 5 ft 5 and after 2 whole weeks: 6 pounds loss ... that's it. I'm disappointed plus the dry mouth is terrible. I don't really have much energy but I'll stick to the drug for the 3-month time frame. Will update you after a month"

"Started Adipex 9/10/18. Female - 5’9 SW 202 lbs. I have always been thinner until steroids for arthritis over the years caused weight gain. Goal is 160 lbs. My Monthly check up at Dr. 10/6 weighed in 191 lbs. Today 188 lbs. I know my diet is under what I should have. Usually 700-900 calories a day. Light exercise. More energetic. Curbed appetite. No eating after 5:30 supper, no sweets, chicken only for fast food ( no fries). If I want a mid day snack, it’s an apple with peanut butter. One cheat day, up to 1400 calories, water only. Have dry mouth and insomnia. Faster heartbeat when active. No rage feelings. Actually great mood because of the energy and feeling proud of myself for losing. I will gain a little back as I will have to add more calories into my diet, but have the mind set to eat healthier and hopefully losing the weight, I will be more energetic when off Adipex. Good luck to all."

"I'm 44 years old weight today is 322lb. I have had success with this before (several years ago) I can't remember exactly how much but at least 20lbs in 2 months, I also weighed less then. I have tried to take this at least 2 other times since but have stopped only a few days in because of the headaches. I'm about to give it a try again because I know it helps and hopefully this time the headaches won't be so bad. Wish me luck."

"I’ve been taking Phentermine for 4 weeks. I’ve lost 11 lbs. It has helped my mood and really helped to suppress my appetite. It does make me sweat more than usual and I am always thirsty but it makes me drink more water which is good. I am dreading the time when I have to stop taking the medication. It has been so helpful. I do exercise 3 days a week and eat a 1,800 calorie diet."

"It was great at helping lose weight but once you come off of it, you'll gain it all right back unless you make serious changes to your diet. It helps give you a kick start but it's never permanent. Besides, they'll only prescribe it for up to 3 months at a time."

"I am a 48 year old female when have been battling weight issues for over 10 years. I stopped smoking cigarettes 3/3/13 and my weight took a jump up for the worst. I lost my will power after gaining so much weight. I began to stay in the house and withdraw from social events because of being ashamed. I began taking adipex 8/15/18 weighting 234lbs. As of 8/22/18 I weigh 227lbs. THAT'S 7LBS IN 7 DAYS! Today, 8/26/18, I haven't weighed myself but I'm sure I've lost more. I have no appetite or cravings. Now that I see results, there is no turning back. Just wait until I as exercise, oh boy! Side effects are slight headaches, jittery, sweating and loose stools. The jitteriness give me energy so I don't mind."

"I've been taking adipex for 2 weeks. My starting weight was 80kg (171lbs). In the first week I lost almost 5kgs (9lbs), but the second week I haven't lost anymore. I have also started exercising 5 times a week so it could potentially be changing fat into muscle. Prior to starting adipex I wasn't exercising at all. I will update in another 2 weeks where results should be more visual. I have had some side effects including dry mouth, occassional heart palpitations, occassional long distance blurred vision."

"At the age of 37 and after 3 children, up and down weight loss issues I finally hit my all time high weight at 250lbs. I started taking Adipex not thinking that it would work but surprisingly it did. After taking the medication for the 90 days I lost a total of 40lbs. The medicine made me not want to eat and also left me with a very dry mouth daily. I also did 3 miles on the treadmill daily. I still have the other 10lbs to go and is very sad that adipex is only for 3 months. Overall the best weight loss drug I have ever tried."

"I have always been 130 lbs, but since having my last child I went up to 171lb! I have tried losing weight but nothing was working then I started steadily gaining to my current 184lb (I am 5'4"). Doctor checked my thyroid and all is well. I asked my doc about this medication and if it was right for me. I will see him every 30 days, with a 3 month limit on this medication. I have been on this med for maybe 2 weeks and have not weighed myself yet, but I have definitely noticed a change in my appetite. I no longer want to snack at night, and I am not always hungry. The first day I felt slightly jittery, and my mouth was so dry. Now I no longer feel jittery, my mouth is dry for about 3 hours after taking. I don't feel like I have a ton of energy, but when I get home after working a medium paced 8 hour job I am really tired when I get home. I have been keeping a close eye on my food and water intake. I am curious if I have lost any weight."

"Hi everyone!! I am a 41 year old married mother of 4. I weighed in at 245 lbs at 5'7. For years, I have had bouts of depression and self loathing. Well, I have finally decided to do something about my weight and got the Phen shot Wed, June 27 and began taking the Adipex 37.5mg Thursday. I must tell you, I feel fabulous!! My energy is way up and mentally I feel really good almost like a feeling of euphoria. I have no appetite. I have to force myself to take a few bites. I would rarely drink water but now it is my best friend!! I have not drank anything but for 2 days now. I have dry mouth (and the tinge of stinky breath I read about in the reviews), but I can definitely deal with it. And I spend 30 minutes a day on the treadmill. Sorry to be so long, but I had to tell someone :) I really think I found something that's finally going to work for me!! I can't wait to be slim again, to be able to bend down and tie my shoes without giving out of breath!!"

"**Update I originally weighed 374 pounds, and I got all the way down to 304lb on my own by exercising. Unfortunately, my weight picked up and I hovered at 320lb for years. I became so tired and desperate, I called the doctor fearing weight gain. She put me on Adipex in March of 2017 and I lost weight down to 221. Then I was off Adipex for 4 months and only gained 10 lbs, bringing my current weight to 231 lbs. This drug helped me to use the tools of weight loss more effectively. You still have to eat healthy and exercise. It does help you focus better and not to constantly contemplate food. Hopefully, this round I can drop below 200!"

"I just started the Adipex on 6/12/18, I weighed 213lb the day I started. I followed the low calorie diet of 1200 calories per day, cut out sugar. No side effects except dry mouth, I hated water before this but now I have no choice. Today 6/14/18 went for follow up appointment I'm 209lb that's 4 pounds in two days no gym. I walk a little at work but nothing major. My husband was sceptical about this, but now he seen the proof in me and is scheduled next Tuesday the 19th, to see the doctor for his prescription. I'm so excited for him. "

"I am a diabetic and in October 2016 I weighed in at 306lb so started adipex and by May 2017 I was 226lb! I am 5'9 so being 226lb means I wear medium-large. By no means is this a magic pill! I lost weight fast and it was due to taking adipex along with a reduced calorie diet (all clean eating) and working out 1hr 5x a week! I got pregnant right after my weight loss but I am ready to start adipex again and this time my goal weight is160-180lb"

"I went to the Doctor on 5/17/18 I am 5'3" tall, 38 yrs. old and have had 4 children three of which are adults now, anyway my weigh in at the Doctor's office was 233lbs. I started my first pill 5/18/18 at 6am no side affects other than dry mouth and energy boost for me. I went to drinking only water nothing else that day I started the pill, I am using my exercise machine 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening. I have kept myself on a three meal a day program with low calorie intake and as of today 5/29/18 I am 222lbs I have lost 11lbs in 12 days. The first week I noticed that my weight was just dropping quite quickly but as this second week progresses I have noticed that my weight lose has slowed down and is stabilizing to a slow steady pace which is good or for me I feel it is. My goal weight is 115lbs. Hopefully by summer time 2019."

"I started Adipex-P 2 months ago it took a while to work for me. I am losing weight slowly. I have lost 10 IBS in 2 months, which is good for me. I lost 85 IBS about 4 years ago. I have gained 30 IBS back. It took me about 4 years to lose 80 IBS. To lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks is great for me."

"I took adipex four years ago and it was amazing. I lost 50 pounds, And felt great! I started it back up this week because I got married and fell off the healthy food wagon. This time around I've had headaches and a racing heart. I think I'm going to try taking my pill every other day and see if the side effects lighten up any."

"I started this in late October 2017. I think it was a few days before Halloween and I was begging my doctor for help. I'm 5'1 222lb and mom of 2. I'm very small boned so this was a dangerously high weight for me. It is now April 2018 and I'm 162lb. 60 pound lost. My doctor said I'm not in the clear. She wants me at 115. She will keep me on it till I'm at that weight or it stops working. This isn't a magic pill though. You still have to try to exercise but it just gives you a little help. I have my husband on it now. Let's see if it works for him."
