Reviews for Adipex-P to treat Weight Loss
"I was prescribed Adipex by my doctor 9/18/17 and so far so good. I do not own a scale so I am waiting on my monthly doctor visit so that he may monitor my weight loss. The first day I felt like I could run a Marathon and I did not at a thing that day, but drank a lot of water. The next couple days to a week it evened out a little better not as hyper, but enough energy to function. I am taking the 37.5 I take a a half of a pill in the morning and a half in the afternoon as prescribed by my doctor. Your doc may prescribe differently, but this does make the effects of the drug easier to handle. I started off at 250lbs ( I hate to admit) and being only 5'3 I feel terrible about my weight. I want to be at 130 when finished"

"So I just started adipex on 9/26/17 2 days ago, the only side effect I’m feeling right now is dry mouth and I am only taking 1/2 the pill. I am 35 years old 5’4 and currently weight 199lb which is the heaviest I have been in over 10 years . I am really hoping that this pill helps me jumpstart my weight loss as my goal is to be 170lb by thanksgiving. I will be back to give an update next week!"

"Been on Adipex-p for 28 days and have lost 20 pounds. Doctor put me on it because I am menopausal and have a hard time losing weight. First week had a hard time sleeping but now no problems, I check my blood pressure daily and no issues there. Definitely get dry mouth with it that has been my only issue, I usually chew gum and keep a drink handy. Glad I was given this drug, doubt I would have lost what I did without it."

"I am now on my 3rd month of Adipex. I started June at 190 and currently at 166.4lb I still get the dry mouth and had two episodes of getting blurred vision, clammy feeling and passing out and than throw up. Well today I figured out the common factor of each time that happened. I had one alcoholic beverage each of those days. So lesson learned even 1 little drink with this medication can cause major side effects. Other than that I have been totally fine. So I chalked it up to human error!!! Hoping to keep the weight off when my 3 months are up. Well check back on my last day for final results of 3 months."

"I was having trouble conceiving so, I had tests done, DNC (just to clean the inside and make sure it was OK), got put on a fertility pills but they made me gain weight. I started adipex July 18th weight was 305 pounds. I'm always thirsty with dry mouth, quit drinking everything except water and coffee, only eating low carb foods, and when I get hungry I only eat little portions and I get full faster. I do not have a job and don't exercise everyday but I'm constantly doing something or going somewhere and the meds have really helped in my weight loss, self confidence, and changed my life style. As if August 17th I am down to 289 pounds, I have lost 16 lbs in 1 month. Currently on month 2 will post as weight loss continues."

"Hey everyone today was my first day trying adipex I took a half of pill today before I took the pill I didn't eat anything but I wasn't instantly hungry , I made a slight breakfast and I'm full , I also received the b12 vitamin shot my stomach fills as if it's full of water , I'm praying this works for me I'm am now 261 and I'm 22 years old , I've tried every weight loss tactic including excessive working out , I do admit I am a junk food eater and I love hamburger, I will begin to watch what I take down and start off walking at least a mile a day. I pray this really works because I've seen many positive results despite the dry mouth which I haven't experienced because I drink a lot of water normally. I will keep you guys updated . Fingers cross"

"Hey y'all I'm just checking in again. I've lost sooooo much weight since I've started guys. Omg. I had a baby, my 3rd to be exact and just could never get back to my weight I was before my babies. I'm 5'1 and I weighed 198lbs after my baby. I took the pill April 27 it's not July 30... I've lost 40lbs in 3 months I don't have dry mouth anymore but I still do have a little blurry vision. No high blood pressure and is very healthy. I will stop using this once I reach my goal of 130lbs. Now I do watch what I eat and I calorie count. That could be why I also lost so much so quickly. It's curbs your appetite and you must remember to eat. I love this pill. I'll keep y'all posted :)"

"So, a coworker told me about adipex and I was super eager to try anything to lose the extra weight. I can't post anything about results yet but I can say this: yesterday was my first dose and I immediately experienced dry mouth which can be lessened w gum chewing/drinking water. Also, I guess related to dry mouth have been told by my boyfriend my breath has a new/different (bad) smell-he's a real charmer. Energy is crazy high! But downside, I haven't slept but 2 hrs in...oh, the last 36 hrs & I have had NO DESIRE to eat. Anything. It's really hard to force itself to eat when u have no interest. So EXTREME suppressant for me. Hoping just initial adjustment bc I won't be able to continue if have severe insomnia/anorexia. Will update:)"

"Here is my one month update. When I started my whole weight loss process I was 190lb. I was 184lb when I started Adipex on June 13th. I am today weighing in at 170lb so I have officially lost 20lbs in a month and and one week. Only side affect I have noticed is dry month even though I am drinking water like a fish. I have 2 more months of this medication before I have to stop for the 3 months. I am hoping I will be able to not have to start it up again after the 3 month break. I am feeling much better and healthier in this last month."

"I have taken Adipex for one month and 4 days, 22 pounds down. Starting weight 240, now at 218. I plan to stay on the pill until I reach 180 lbs. I am a very active person and eat great. First couple days I did have headaches, which only lasted 2-3 days now I have had none. The boost of energy is nice. I do experience some dry mouth, thankfully I LOVE water! I'll post in another month hopefully I will be under 200 pounds!"

"I am day 9 on treatment. I have lost a few pounds which I happy about but the side effects have made me wonder if I should continue. Severe dry mouth ,bloating and much more irritable than normal. I'm not nearly as hungry as I used to be and there is actually food left on my plate which is great but I can not continue if the side effects don't at least lessen a bit. I will give it 2 more weeks."

"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"
