For Obesity "I have tried everything I could to lose weight from pills, to shakes, to teas, to detoxing, to even a lap band, and NONE of it worked. I had hit my all-time high of 230. I went to my fertility doctor and she said I was in bad health to try to have a baby. My cholesterol was high, my blood pressure was high, and to make it worse, I was pre-diabetic. I've been on adipex now for a month and a half. I've lost 35 lbs, barely exercise, but I'm so full of energy that I've completely redone my house, cleaned the garage, and refurbished lots of furniture pieces. I LOVE IT!!! I've not had his much energy since I was in my 20s! I do have about 20 more lbs to go and it will be off in no time."

For Obesity "I originally weighed 374 pounds, and I got all the way down to 304 on my own by excercising. Unfortunately, my weight picked up and I hovered at 320 for years. I became so tired and desperate, I called the doctor fearing weight gain. She put me on Adipex in March, I lost 27 pounds the first month, 12 pounds the next month, I'm still working on my third month for final tally. I am down to 287. Although there were some side effects, the health benefits far outweighed the risks for me. My blood pressure dropped 40 points in the first month alone and I am no longer pre-hypertension. This medicine has been a clean slate for me as I cook my own food and retrain my body to be nourished."

For Obesity "I've been on adipex for 11 months now and I've dropped 117 pounds! I didn't exercise only took the pill and cut out everything bad (even though it taste good, doesn't always make it healthy for you) eating wise. Sugar, flour, bread, pastas, FASTFOOD, and even eating after a certain time. I started eating healthy snacks every two hours, ( egg whites, cottage cheese, bag of steamers vegetables, lots of chicken, belvita snacks, carrots and peanut butter etc,and drinking lots of water! Do this and I promise you'll drop weight immediately."

For Weight Loss "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 :)"

For Obesity "Started taking 12 days ago, starting weight of 256.6lb & today 250.0lb. Side effects: increased energy which I absolutely love, suppressed appetite which is good, dry mouth which means I drink a lot of water which also is good. Considering I struggled with drinking enough water daily, this changed that. I still get hungry, but only 2-3 times a day, once I start to eat I'm full very quickly. A simple snack like fruit or raw veggies quickly takes the hunger away. I eat a sensible dinner with the family. I've completely lost interest in soda & sweets. I do take a multivitamin. Stay smart, watch what you know you should be eating, exercise & live healthy. You can do it, this helps."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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.."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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!"

For Weight Loss "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"

For Obesity "on 1/24/2017 I started taking 1 pill of Adipex 37.5mg once a day. I started at 262lbs. As of today 3/8/17 I now weigh 247lbs. It gives me energy without the jitters. I also suppresses my appetite I force myself to eat 5 small meals a day. I also do at least a 30 min workout 4 times a week. Adipex works! My normal doctor will not prescribe this medication so I see a weight loss doctor. I pay 100.00 a month for the meds."

For Weight Loss "I started this medication on 2/18/2017 at a starting weight of 323 lbs (I'm 5'11"). I've tried and tried to lose weight and it just was not happening. My doctor prescribed me this medication and put me on a strict 1600 calorie diet. So far I have lost 12 lbs in my 14 days on this medication. I do work out everyday and lift weights as well. If you combine a good diet and exercise with this medication I believe it most definitely will pay off."

For Weight Loss "I have been taking these pills on and off since last year. When I am strict with my diet I see amazing results. My body has adapted to them, so that is my only downfall. They are no as affective as when I 1st started them. To anyone having side effects, I was having terrible headaches and dry mouth. My doctor offers name brand and generic pills. The generic pills give me massive side effects, I can only take name brand. If you are having side effects take 1/2 pill in the am and the other 1/2 pill late morning. That way you can split the dose, it will stay in your system longer and may help with evening crashes."

For Weight Loss "I gained a lot of weight after having my 1st son and a failed IUD. My doc prescribed Adipex 37.5 and I took it 5-6 days per week for 5 months. In the beginning it gave me extreme dry mouth and it was hard to fall asleep because of the energy boost but it suppressed my appetite A LOT and if I ate to much it made me vomit. I started working out slowly a few times per week and by the time I stopped taking it I was working out 5 days a week. I am 5'8 and my start weight was 195 my end weight was 137.After my 2nd son I lost the weight easily and got back down to 140 but after my daughter I gained and could not lose anything, my energy was low and I could not control my appetite. As soon. As I am done breastfeeding I will be taking Adipex again"

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."
