Reviews for Adipex-P

"It does work. You have to work with Adipex though. You have to stay hydrated. You have to eat at least 1000 calories if not 1200 daily. You have to exercise a little. Even if it is just walking. You need to also take it very early and take it around the same time each day. Like 6am. 7am. I would not go past 8am if you are sensitive to medications. Otherwise you will be up all night long ready to run around. You also need to change the foods you eat. We are fat because of what we eat. This is not a magic pill that will melt your fat away. You need to correct yourself for it to really help you on your weight loss journey. This is all common sense. It raises your heart rate up (it's almost like speed). That is what gives you the energy that we are all lacking. For me Adipex is a fantastic appetite suppressant. Good Luck."

"Started Apidex on April 1, 2019 and lost 10 pounds, I went back to the Dr. April 29th and found out I was pregnant after not being able to conceive in 15 years. Dr. told me that Adipex makes you very fertile so I guess that was a boost to me getting pregnant, but now I’m about gain those 10 pounds right back in the best possible way lol"

"My backstory: On January 1st I started dieting with the low carb diet (a mix between Atkins and keto kinda) then I weighed 213.8lb. And at the end of March I weighed 199.6lb so I lost 14lbs In March I was tired of keto and stared just eating smaller portions of non diet food. At the end of March I weighed in at 195.2 so not terrible but also not the results I previously had. On April 15 I started the slimfast diet. And on April 24 I went to the doctor to get Adipex and weighed in at 191.2lb today April 26 I have just taken my fist Adipex. I’m excited to see how this goes. I’m going to continue to do the slimfast for the first month, I’d like to see 176lb when I get on the scale at my follow up appt. I’m a nurse and I work shift work and on my off days I tend to cheat badly. I plan to workout 3 times a week. My end goal weight as of right now would be 150. I’m 5’5 and I feel like I carry my weight pretty evenly."

"I'm 5'3 female 39 yrs old my starting weight was 213 lbs . The 1st week I lost 15 lbs my biggest loss. Today I had my 1st month check up to get a refill and at my weigh in at the Doctors visit I was 190.8 lb. I started walking at 2 1/2 week mark I could only walk for 30 mins at first then I begin to walk for an hour. I had no energy when I first started taking the pills. I bought some vit b12 and when I took this it gave me the energy that helped me to start walking. I only take one b12 a day. I also take a multi vitamin and fish oil pill. I eat similar to the HCG protocol its not a miracle pill you have to have self control over the things you eat and choose food wisely."

"My first day was great, I ate breakfast and had no appetite for rest of day. Next few days same thing. However following 2 weeks began to feel hungrier after eating. Think I may have lost 1 pound with exerise in 3 weeks. Would not advise, the effect wears out."

"This pill is a magic pill! Only if you take it the right way. I've experimented with it, over the past year, the two times I've been prescribed it. Its supposed to be taken 3 months on, then 2 months off. I would take advantage of the 2 months off to appreciate the weight you've lost ,and practice discipline and healthy living. What you won't read is, you will gain it back! This pill will give you crazy ENERGY! Use it! The most effective way, I would recommend taking your dose is on an empty stomach, Preferably, as soon as you get up. So If you get up around 6, take your dose. Around 8:30 or 9 eat breakfast. WATER,WATER, WATER! Is your best friend while on this pill. Which will have your glowing skin glowing! If you don't drink water or a low sugar flluids with this pill, you will have dry mouth, mood swings, and irritability. I will guarantee it. Yes, this is my personal experience."

"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!"

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. "
