Reviews for Adipex-P to treat Weight Loss
"I just started this medication on June 12 starting weight is 184 I am down to 179 already. My primary doctor advised that I do the name brand of the medication for the first month and than the following two months I have the choice of generic or name brand. Like most I have tried all the fad diets and pills and spent countless money on stuff that just did not work. Now Medical I have RLS (restless leg syndrome) and I have not had a problem with this medication effect the medication I take for that. Only real side effect I have seen so far is dry mouth even though I am drinking anywhere from 64oz water or more a day. I have increase energy which is great. I will update more results as they come. Also my insurance does cover some of the cost."

"At 280 pounds, recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, and told to start medications, I turned to my doctor to discuss potential stomach procedures. Well, with 1 Kidney, I'm pretty certain Diabetes would eventually cut my life short so why not go through a drastic change? No.... instead I asked her for three months to lose 30 pounds, and she suggested I try Adipex/Phenermine 37.5mg So like many all of you, I did, and I instantly felt that sudden feel good surge of energy. I'm now 10 weeks in and lost 33.5 pounds. Some will read this and many of your posts and instantly think it's a fake review. But honestly readers, this pill has changed my outlook on life. Give it a shot, it may not work for all, but it may work for you!"

"I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pill already. I've been only taking it for 8 days and already I lost 9 lbs. I weighed 188 lbs and now I'm 179 since I've started taking it. It helps curb your appetite. I have to remember to eat honestly. I do have blurry vision and dry mouth and tons of energy. I'm not constipated like most because I take vitamin C I guess. I love the results and will continue to use it. I'm 5'1'' and my goal weight is 130lbs. I will keep y'all updated :)"

"I've been taking low dose adipex for about 2 weeks now. I am 5'7" and started around 165 lbs. I haven't been taking adipex regularly as I am a nurse and work rotating shifts and it suppresses my appetite so much that when I want to go out for nice meals/ enjoy weekends I also don't take it. I have not experienced any jitters or vision effects but I am much more focused and have much more sustained energy that I actually save them for night shifts. I eat like a toddler being constantly on the go and rarely have time for the gym. I do however spend 36-48 hours on my feet running around at work. So far without any effort I am down 7-8 lbs. I highly recommend this and I'm sure results would be exaggerated diet & exercise."

"I took Adipex for 1 year and lost 90lbs. I changed my eating habits and starting doing light exercise 3 days a week. I've been off Adipex for 3 months and haven't gained any weight back. Just stick with a healthy eating plan and you will not gain. Medications should be used as a tool if you don't change your eating habits then you can gain all the weight back. *sidenote...please stop writing reviews when you haven't taken the medication or just started the medication. The purpose of a review is to give your opinion on a product after using it for some time. Announcing that your doctor has prescribed Adipex isn't a review and it isn't helpful for people who are looking for reviews on this website..rant over.."

"I lost about 40lbs through changing my eating habits and regular exercise over a period of about 18 months, but I had hit a plateau. I was referred to a weight loss clinic by my co-workers, who are having great success with phentermine. After my first week of taking phentermine 37.5, I was constantly famished, and tired. At the 3 week marker (down 6 lbs), I requested to switch to Adipex. I noticed a difference the very first dose. I'm on day 3 of Adipex, and it seems to do a much more consistent job of curbing my appetite, and I don't feel sleepy. I'm not overly energetic, but also not jittery, and I'm not getting the headaches. Trying it for a week before possibly checking into another option. So far, I am feeling optimistic."

"Lost 45 lbs on this medicine and couldn't be happier. This pill works. I have kept the weight off for 6 mos now and desire to lose another 15 - 20 Lbs so I'm going back on it. My belly has shrunk! 5 ft 2 started at 212 lbs, now 167 lbs. Some people that haven't seen me in a while do a double take. Counting my calories, exercising 5 days a week, keeping a food diary and drinking lots of H2O helps too. Good luck all!"

"Addition to my original post: 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. ***3/17/17 *** now weigh 154.6, total weight loss of 14 lbs. in two months. This month will be my last month bc my body fat and bmi will most likely be back in normal range"

"I started this medication on 2/18/2017 at a starting weight of 323 lbs (I'm 5'11"). I've tried and tried to lose weight and it just was not happening. My doctor prescribed me this medication and put me on a strict 1600 calorie diet. So far I have lost 12 lbs in my 14 days on this medication. I do work out everyday and lift weights as well. If you combine a good diet and exercise with this medication I believe it most definitely will pay off."

"I started this pill on 2/24/17 So far I have lost about a pound a day I only eat 1000 calories a day and exercise whenever I get up early enough I have experienced some terrible side effects which include dry mouth , insomnia , tingling in my left leg ,jitters, and headaches. The side effects are terrible but I've look up ways to deal with them dry mouth I drink a bunch of water , insomnia I take zzzquil jitters drink more water and take deep breaths , headaches I take pain pills. Does anyone know how long before my body gets used to this medication and the side effects go away ?"

"I have been taking these pills on and off since last year. When I am strict with my diet I see amazing results. My body has adapted to them, so that is my only downfall. They are no as affective as when I 1st started them. To anyone having side effects, I was having terrible headaches and dry mouth. My doctor offers name brand and generic pills. The generic pills give me massive side effects, I can only take name brand. If you are having side effects take 1/2 pill in the am and the other 1/2 pill late morning. That way you can split the dose, it will stay in your system longer and may help with evening crashes."

"I gained a lot of weight after having my 1st son and a failed IUD. My doc prescribed Adipex 37.5 and I took it 5-6 days per week for 5 months. In the beginning it gave me extreme dry mouth and it was hard to fall asleep because of the energy boost but it suppressed my appetite A LOT and if I ate to much it made me vomit. I started working out slowly a few times per week and by the time I stopped taking it I was working out 5 days a week. I am 5'8 and my start weight was 195 my end weight was 137.After my 2nd son I lost the weight easily and got back down to 140 but after my daughter I gained and could not lose anything, my energy was low and I could not control my appetite. As soon. As I am done breastfeeding I will be taking Adipex again"

"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."

"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."

"Today was my 1st day taking to pill. I had energy for about 12 hours and really no urge to eat although I did. I drank plenty of water today, I felt like I had dry mouth. No real bad side effects. I did work out and it help."

"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!"
