For 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."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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"

For Obesity "I took this med about 8 years ago. Don't really remember how I felt taking it but after 2 mths and not losing any weight to warrant the purchase price of $30/mth, I stopped. I am giving it a new try. I haven't noticed any bad side effects that stand out or bother me. I believe the med curbs cravings and I usually don't feel like even eating dinner after work. But, that being said I haven't lost any weight yet. I need to get my daily meals back on track and continue the med and then I will update again in 1 week."

For Obesity "I started taking Adipex On Jan 1. 2014 until Feb 1 2014 - I lost 30 pounds even. I did only 30 minutes of Cardio a day. That was just brisk walking. MY side effects were; cotton mouth, extreme loss of appetite, I lost my ass , I had extreme energy, couldn't sleep, I was very focus, I had a pleasant attitude but quickly irritated, fast heart beat , blurry vision every now and again. My doctor told me that with adipex it helps you curb your hunger but when you work out it burns double calories. I was 180 - and went to 149. whe I stopped the weight never came back and it became hard for me to eat as much as I use to. I got pregnant and had a baby Jan 29 2015 - I am 180 pounds as of 2/4/17 and I started adipex again. Same symptoms and I'm losing a lot again"

For Weight Loss "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!"

For Weight Loss "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!"

For Obesity "It is very good at suppressing your habits, but I do find that it leaves dry mouth, hard to have bowel movements and it does affect your eyes."

For Weight Loss "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!"

For Weight Loss "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."

For Obesity "I am 227 lbs and 5'3". I started taking the Adipex 37.5 today (11-18-16) at 7:30 am. I could tell that I took it because I was very talkative, and not energetic as in bouncing off the walls or nothing, but more like I actually had the energy to do my work and I was really focused on it. Done more today at work than I done all week. Only thing I have a problem with is when I ate it felt like I slowed down, and all my energy was gone. Maybe it want be like this the whole time. I will keep ya'll updated on my progress."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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!"
