For Weight Loss "I started this in late October 2017. I think it was a few days before Halloween and I was begging my doctor for help. I'm 5'1 222lb and mom of 2. I'm very small boned so this was a dangerously high weight for me. It is now April 2018 and I'm 162lb. 60 pound lost. My doctor said I'm not in the clear. She wants me at 115. She will keep me on it till I'm at that weight or it stops working. This isn't a magic pill though. You still have to try to exercise but it just gives you a little help. I have my husband on it now. Let's see if it works for him."

For Obesity "I started Adipex on March 21,2018 and so far I have lost 8 pounds. I'm excited. Now I am at a plateau and haven't lost or gain but my clothes are fitting loser. My start weight was 265lb and my goal weight is 170lb. I'm really looking forward to getting under the 200 mark. Was getting a bit discouraged because I just stop loosing until I read these reviews and I can say I feel much better. I won't give up. I will continue with my weight loss journey. The only side effect I have with the Adipex is dry mouth which is a good thing because it's made me drink more water lol. I have more energy everyday and the cravings are less especially at night. I will continue to keep u updated as the days go by."

For Obesity "I started adipex on Jan 16 2018..weighing in @ 227lbs and a 41"waist.then I lost 16lbs in a month and lost 4" off my waist. Leaving me at 211lbs 36" waist. 2 weeks later I'm was 205lbs and desperate to get out of the 200s club. I stop taking the pills for a Month because I felt like my weight loss was at a plateau and for that month I was off the pill I didn't lose nor gain. weight. So I did more research about the pills and it said to keep taking it even if it felt like it wasn't working, and I'm glad I did! Now today April 8th 2018 I am proud to say I am 198.3lbs and officially out of the 200 club!!!! And I will continue to push for my goal weight of 170lbs (I changed my goal weight to 170 from 160 by the way) I will continue to keep you guys updated. God bless!!!"

For Weight Loss "I have been yo-yo dieting on and off for many years. I have hovering around half way to my goal weight, So far I have lost 60 pounds and have not gained it back. I just couldn't lose the last 50 pounds. I finally asked my doctor for an appetite suppressant, which she claimed she didn't believe in. She wrote me a 30 day prescription as a trial. I began that day, March 20, 2018, weighing 209, Today, March 30, I weighed in at 200! That's 9 pounds in 10 days! This IS working! I'll definitely get a refill. Side effects are minimal, I have dry mouth and a slight headache when I first wake up, but it's worth it. I will give more updates."

For Obesity "I tried this for weight loss but after 3 days that was secondary to its affect on the fibromyalgia. What I had thought was needing-new-knees pain had actually been Fibro! I no longer needed 9 hours of sleep to feel rested - 7 would do! I no longer had to take longer and longer breaks between shorter and shorter times spent doing chores. I could get through a shower and dressing without stopping to rest 2-3 times. No more Fibro fog. No more Fibro flu. No bad side effects either. AND I lost weight. Until I switches from tablet to caplet then it was as if I wasn’t taking it. Everything went back to pre-phentermine days. And no one takes notice. The drug has a bad rap. Only one doctor so far is willing to prescribe it so I can lose weight. After I lose it....."

For Obesity "Today is 3 weeks on adipex symptoms have pretty much subsided but at first I was having trouble sleeping, I had a little bit of increased heart rate and random numbness in my arms and hands. I also still feel cold a lot but nothing unmanageable. My start weight was 182lb I'm down to 168lb goal weight is 130lb. I've cut my calorie intake way down no breads or sugars no pop. The medicine does give me a really bad dry mouth which is good for me because I want nothing but water and lots of it! I do still feel hungry on adipex which is good but it's cut my cravings and my appetite so I eat small portions of good healthy meals and healthy snacks in between! I'm excited to see where I am at 8 weeks"

For Obesity "I'm on day 4. Don't have increased heartbeat or fast heart beat at all. I'm 5'8 1/2 . I went from 318lb to 312lb. I've noticed my cravings for sugary foods and fast food have increased majorly. I eat less than 1000. Doctor has me on a 1400 çalorie diet though. I'm just not hungry but I eat fruit and drink a lot of water throughout the day. Going to start exercising to get results faster."

For Weight Loss "I started taking this three weeks ago. I started at 216 pounds and this morning I weighed 205lb. That's 11 pounds in just three weeks without exercising, just making sure I eat 1200 calories per day and cutting out nearly all sugar drinks. My appetite has decreased severely. The dry mouth is uncomfortable, but completely bearable."

For Obesity "I started Adipex 37.5 3/8/18. So I've taken it for 3 days so far. Side effects so far are increased heart rate, this was a little scary to me at first but apparently its common. My resting heart rate went from 71 to 90. Also, increased urinating when I haven't actually increased my water intake at all yet or when I hardly drink anything. I'm also a lot more emotional and cry easily, hopefully this goes away soon. I have so much more energy, like I can't do things fast enough, wasn't tired enough to fall asleep but when I did fall asleep, it was easier to wake up after only 5 hours and make though the next day with plenty of energy. I'll come back and update total weight loss at my 4 week check in. Starting weight was 236, female 5'3" size 18 pants. Goal is 200, size 14 pants. I hold my weight well and I'm pear shape so I'm happy with my body at a size 14."

For Obesity "I am starting week 4 on Adipex today and so far have had good results. My SW was 216, I’m 5’6. My GW is 180. I haven’t had many side effects at all besides a lot of dry mouth. I cut down my daily calorie intake tremendously as I used to go out to eat/get take out all the time for dinner and on lunch breaks at work. I have been drinking premier protein shakes for breakfast and lunch with a snack in between. I have been working out every other day with an exception to a few slacked days. The scale has been very back and forth which is making me a little discouraged but I know as I am losing water weight, etc, I am also gaining muscle by working out more. Starting week 4 I am at 207. That’s 9lbs in 3 weeks! I have also worn a pair of jeans that now fit like a glove (actually a little loose) that used to be too tight on me. I’m happy that I’m starting to see results in the mirror but the scale gets me discouraged at times. I still have one more refill for another month!"

For Weight Loss "I am a mom to 4 kids and just turned 30. I am 5 feet and I was weighing 166 lbs. I had never ever gained weight. Even through my pregnancies it was a hard for me to gain weight and when I gave birth to all 4 kids each time I went back down to normal like if I never gave birth. I am not a person that eats my life away because I barely have time to eat, I am always busy and on the go. I have always worked out and tried to eat as clean as possible. Although I packed all the weight around my butt and boobs and looked very nice on my petite frame, I honestly hated it. On 1/24/18 I went to the dr and started this medication. I have not experienced any side effects besides maybe some dry mouth. I am also never hungry at all. It’s like I have to be forced to eat. I went back to the doctor on 2/8/18 and I weighed in at 152 lbs. Literally 14 pounds in just 3 weeks and I haven’t even had the time to work out at all like I did before."

For Weight Loss "I started my journey Oct 2017 @213lbs. Today, Feb 2018 I'm already down 22lbs!! Drink LOTS of water, no pop (soda), watch calorie & carb intake. My dr put me on a 1200cal diet. Log into Myfitnesspal.com to keep track. Walk as much as you can and hit the gym too if you are able too. Main thing is LOTS of water and control you food portions. Good luck! I'm on 2nd dose can't wait to see where I am in 2 months :)"

For Obesity "Although I carry my weight extremely well I'm still considered obese and have been for a while. I'm 5-2, 212 lb. I carry it everywhere, thank goodness. I've been working out for over a month, eating good, and tracking everything on my Fitbit but I just could not seem to budge. I'm hoping this medication works as good as everyone is saying. My plan is to only take it for 4 months, and to only take a half a pill. I can't handle a full one. It was amazing for my workout this morning though, crazy energy . I'll check back in at my one month mark."
