Reviews for Adipex-P to treat Weight Loss

"I started phentermine capsules end of August 2016 weight was about 197-199lbs starting out. I tried to lose weight for 2 years I had never been this heavy & felt miserable everyday cut out pop was drinking only water & attempted to diet with no success. Tried the tablets before 37.5 mg gained 10lbs so this time my primary doctor called in capsules to the pharmacy, within the first week I lost around 7lbs which I'm sure was water weight. First month I lost 25lbs give or take then the 2nd month I didn't lose so I went off of them for 2 weeks started again lost a couple more lbs. I am now 165lbs Feb. 2017 I haven't lost since but I have maintained. I also never exercised. 500 calories the first 3 weeks on them with breaks here & there."

"Started on 1/19/2017 5'4" 18 yr. old female weighing 168 lbs. Always been a little overweight and decided to make a change. It is now 2/17/2017 and have lost 7 lbs. so I now weigh 161. I got those results with a semi-strict diet and working out frequently (about 5-6 days a week). I don't have a ton of weight to lose so it hasn't melted off as fast as others but it definitely works! Just have extreme dry mouth. I would recommend this to anyone serious about losing weight. Will update again in a month."

"I'm 19, female 240 pounds and 5'8" I started taking adipex yesterday (02/10/2017 and I had a boost of energy for about 5 hours along with constantly sweating, dizzy, no appetite I had to force myself to eat and my heart racing and blurry vision here and there. I sure do hope to see results because these side effects are pretty terrible. Any recommendations? I'm drinking lots of water and eating with the pill."

"Started on Jan16th 2017 and today is Feb 8th 2017 so far I've lost 11 pounds but I have skipped days which is about once a week and on my period days. Start weight was 200 and today I weigh 189. I workout out at least twice a week based on my busy schedule. The pill works great on my appetite and keeps me drinking water a gallon a day. I barely consume enough calories usually about 500 to 800 a day and I've noticed on my cheat days I end up losing more the next day. I need more motivation to get to my goal weight. Wish me luck ! 25 year old female 5'2"

"I started adipex-p 1-25-17 the first day within 30 mins of taking it, I was nauseated and started choking down water trying not to vomit, sadly I did anyway afterwards I continued the water, the nausea settled and I decided to try it the next day so far it's been 10 days on a 1300 calorie diet & workout 3-5 time a week and drinking mostly water only Juice once a week and I'm down 9lbs I'm 35 and very over weight with a goal from the doctor of 31lbs lol and that is me being reasonable. Anyway weight loss is a struggle and I wish everyone success with there goals but I think it's worth trying!"

"When I first started I had to take a blood test and low and behold the reason I had gained weight was my thyroid was not normal ( explains the gobs of hair falling out too) that 1st week I took both pills and it was seriously the worst week my body has ever put me through! Which I'm positive it was the thyroid meds but it made me an absolute wreck! I have now lost 15 lbs in a month and a half! I run on the treadmill everyday and well my eating is minimum which it has been like that since before this. The adipex makes me feel normal again easier to focus and at normal energy levels which I'm sure the thyroid meds are helping that along too. All & all completely worth it but make sure you have a complete blood test done before you take it!"

"It definitely helps with cravings and weightloss, however if you have or do experience anxiety or depression already this pill is not going to help. I did lose about 5-6lbs the first couple weeks but I had to stop because it was making me a crazy person. I had the most horrible anxiety and I just felt mean and upset and sad and it really affected my emotions negatively. Just be careful!"

"I'm 5'4 weighing at 160. I've always been 115-120.Two years ago I had thyriod problems which made me gain some weight.I started adipex 12/12/16 starting out a half of a pill. I took it around 10:30 when I woke up I had the energy to go walking.. Before the pill I had 0 energy and wasn't motivated to exercise. I felt like I had energy all day and didn't have much of an appitite. I had to go to work that night 4:00-11:00pm still having my energy but I felt like I was starting to crash by the time I got off work. I also slept good that night which I never do. So today I took the other half of the pill around 7:00am with no breakfast. I was more tired today but wasn't as hungry. Tomorrow I'm going to try a whole pill."

"I started Adipex on 11/14/16 my starting weight was 310 weight today is 301 it's day 4 I weighed in yesterday and lost 9 lbs. I don't seem to have more energy. But it does work. The only side effects I have are dry mouth, and a slight headache. I have absolutely no appetite, and have to force myself to eat but I also have no desire to drink sodas or ANY junk food. Which is a great thing. I love this pill and would recommend it."

"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!"

"I started Phen 9/27/2016 weighing 201 lbs today is 10/21/2016 and I weigh 186 that is 15 pounds in less than a month...I eat right, I also get the Lipo B12 shot every monday and I go to the gym Mon-fri on my lunch break and I workout and jog every evening. It has different effects on most pple because we are all different. I take half of pill in the am and the other half at noon to reduce the fast heart beat and if you don't work out your not teaching your body discipline, The 1st 3 weeks are the hardest but it is easy now and i highly recommend this pill to anyone wanting to loose weight."

"Last year(2015) I was doing the 21 day fix and had gotten down to 155. I'm 5'4" so 135-140ish is my goal weight. I'm a full time student right now and with a child it's hard to cook super healthy meals all the time. Between spring and fall semester I had gained 25lbs. I was put on birth control for my PCOS in May. Since then I've gained another 18lbs. I just started taking this medicine and its amazing!! The energy I have helps me get thru my workout and the rest of my day. I'm an emotional/boredom eater and it's usually sweets so the fact that it curbs my cravings is awesome. I'm excited to see how I will look at the end of 6mo and hopefully I get get myself back on track with eating healthy"

"I took 37.5 at 7:00am First five minutes I felt a warm sensation all over; about 20 minutes later I felt as if my body was drunk and heavy. Then a burst of energy came I could not stop moving for the next 4 hours. I detailed cleaed my whole house. I could not eat (eat before the pill) food was a turn off for me. I felt full and satisfied with 2 cracker's. I only gave it a 7 because I was very nauseous. I vomited without warning on my floor. Stayed pretty sick to my stomach all day. I lost 2 lbs the first day."

"I'm 5'5" 240 lbs. after years of exercise and dieting I just could not seem to lose more than a few pounds. My doctor and I decided I should try Adipex. I just started taking it yesterday (9/15/16). I've noticed a few side effects even just with the first dose. I have a bit of a dry mouth and it has caused insomnia, and a bit of jitteriness too. Granted it was my first pill so I'm hoping these will subside after a few days. It has curbed my appetite and I've noticed an increase in energy. Now I'm not sure if it was due to the medication, but by 5/6:00 I started to feel like I was crashing a little bit. I don't want to give this a rating yet being as I just started, so I will update at a later time."

"47 yr old male, 6'3, beginning weight in 2012 was 280. Before prescribing, my doc thoroughly checked for a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. If you have high bp, abnormal heart rhythm, hypertension etc, DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICATION. Also if you have anxiety or panic attacks you may want to report those to your Dr before being prescribed Adipex. This medication requires a great deal of responsibility. It curbs your appetite so you can make lifestyle changes that are easier to maintain after you are off Adipex. This is Aug. 2016 and I now weigh 205 and feel great. My waist size went from a 44 to a 36. When you stop Adipex your energy level will drop, if it doesn't level off after 2 to 3 days, have your doc check your thyroid again."
