For Weight Loss "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."

For Obesity "I started taking Adipex On a Saturday which was September 1, 2018. I went to the doctor and weighed in on September 26, 2018. I have lost 15 pounds. I weighed in at 335lbs and now 320lbs. I go back on October 26, 2018 and I will definitely let you know. I haven’t had any side effects at all! I mean none!! I do walk 5 days a week for 30 minutes, nothing else. I am very happy and I am starting to feel better about myself."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Obesity "I have taken this medication for one month, I lost 13lbs with exercise and eating extremely healthy. I would not believe any of these reviews saying they lost 30lbs in a month, it’s not true. I had a talk with 3 different doctors because I had seen these reviews before I took it. You’re not going to lose 10lbs a week, it will help, but it’s not a magic pill, you have to put in the work to lose it, more of an aid than anything else."

For Obesity "I started adipex on 7/13/18. It has almost been 3 months. I started at 208 and I’m down to 168lb. I have been very strict with my diet cutting out carbs and sugars and sticking to lean meats other than a few cheat days for special occasions. I wish they would prescribe longer than the 3 months"

For Weight Loss "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."

For Obesity "So today...9/21/18...I am starting adipex. At the doctor yesterday I weighed in at 213lb and I am 5'4" . My doctor made sure my heart and blood work was good before starting. He recommend that I take half a pill in the morning and the other half around 1:00pm. My goal weight right now is just to get out of the 200 club. I weigh in at the doctor in one month and am determined not to get on the scale before that. My husband and I have joined Planet fitness to help in this journey and we have 6 boys to raise so we want to be healthy for them. God bless everyone that is on the same journey to be healthy. Will keep everyone updated. Thanks for reading "

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Obesity "Adipex 37.5 is the real deal. This is my 2nd time on adipex. The first time I lost about 80lbs in 3 months. The first 3 days I lost 12 lbs adipex is an appetite suppressant and it will for sure make you less hungry. Also monitor your blood pressure because adipex does elevate it. Try not to consume energy drinks or anything with caffeine in it. The weight will fall off pretty fast depending on your eating habits - just be patient."

For Obesity "I was prescribed this medication by my physician to help with my weight. I gain weight due to hypothyroidism. During the time he prescribed it to me I was active and playing softball with my church. The best pills ever. I lost 10lbs in one week because I was so active. Sweating like crazy, not only that it gave me so much energy. He only gave me 1 month supply and wouldn’t give me anymore. I guess because it did what he wanted and that was to drop my weight. I lost about 40lbs while I was on them. I felt so good and energetic."

For Obesity "I made a previous post on May 31, 2018. I have been on Adipex for 8 weeks, and I have lost 17 lbs. I lost and gained, and then lost again during this time, lol. I have not taken it everyday; I probably have missed about 15 doses in the 8 weeks. I realize this kind of throws off my results. I have worked out consistently for 5 of the 8 weeks that I have been taking Adipex. My eating has been good and not so good at times :-). Overall, my eating habits have changed a lot, but I am still working on it. I have had no major side effects that link to the Adipex. It still gives me dry mouth. It continues to help curb my appetite, and even on the days that I forget to take it, my appetite is smaller than it was before I started the medication. I will update again in 8 weeks. I plan to take it daily for more accurate results."

For Obesity "Hi my name is Shannon I'm 32 and 5'4'' and weigh 277lb. I just started taking my adipex today and I'm hoping to lose at least 60 pounds if not more. I already do a lot of exercises and drink nothing but water. I also already don't have much of an appetite. I have heard a lot of good things about this medication and I hope it works for me. I was considering weight loss surgery, but figured I would try this first."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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!!"

For Weight Loss "**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!"

For Weight Loss "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. "

For Obesity "I just started Adipex 3 days ago. I feel a big decrease in my appetite. I do feel very tired but, I'm wondering if that's due to no caffeine compared to all the caffeine I consumed prior. Not drinking wine and beer with meals is going to be a hard habit for me to break but, I need to do something. SW: 234 pnds 5'6 and 32 years old GW: 170 pnds I'm very embarrassed that I let myself get so heavy I'm so scared this isn't going to work for me. I went to a wonderful clinic in Southshore KY for the adipex. $100 for 2 month supply."

For Weight Loss "I am a diabetic and in October 2016 I weighed in at 306lb so started adipex and by May 2017 I was 226lb! I am 5'9 so being 226lb means I wear medium-large. By no means is this a magic pill! I lost weight fast and it was due to taking adipex along with a reduced calorie diet (all clean eating) and working out 1hr 5x a week! I got pregnant right after my weight loss but I am ready to start adipex again and this time my goal weight is160-180lb"

For Obesity "I started Adipex 37.5 mg 2 days ago, weighing 266lbs. I am 4'11", female, and only health problems are obesity and asthma (exacerbated due to weight gain). I am down to 263lbs (-3lbs) in 2 days. First day shortly after I took the pill, I felt sort of high and jittery. Wore off in a couple hrs. I took the pill earlier in the day yesterday (which I plan to do everyday moving forward) right before my workout. I had tons of energy. Didn't feel high or jittery, but maybe because I worked out shortly after taking the pill. I do have dry mouth, but not terrible. It has definitely caused decreased appetite. I didn't want to eat at all yesterday. I ate 2 small meals and a snack, and before I knew it, it was bedtime. I will be more conscious of my food intake moving forward. I'm pretty sure I ate around 800 calories yesterday. I will update after my next doctor's appt on June 19. I don't plan to weigh in again until then."

For Weight Loss "I went to the Doctor on 5/17/18 I am 5'3" tall, 38 yrs. old and have had 4 children three of which are adults now, anyway my weigh in at the Doctor's office was 233lbs. I started my first pill 5/18/18 at 6am no side affects other than dry mouth and energy boost for me. I went to drinking only water nothing else that day I started the pill, I am using my exercise machine 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening. I have kept myself on a three meal a day program with low calorie intake and as of today 5/29/18 I am 222lbs I have lost 11lbs in 12 days. The first week I noticed that my weight was just dropping quite quickly but as this second week progresses I have noticed that my weight lose has slowed down and is stabilizing to a slow steady pace which is good or for me I feel it is. My goal weight is 115lbs. Hopefully by summer time 2019."
