Reviews for Adipex-P
For Weight Loss "I re-started Adepex today. Full dose. I had amazing results 2 years ago. Went off it, but gained 40 lbs back. Unlike some user reviews, I can tell you the weight gain was NOT a result of quitting Adipex. It was poor choices in diet and lack of exercise. I got lazy. But NOT because I quit taking Adipex. I started today because I need help. It is a potent drug. And it will make you not want to eat. EAT ANYWAY. When you don't, you WILL experience mood swings and hostility. The purpose of this drug is to HELP you make better food choices and to get into a good exercise routine. Drink LOTS of water and EAT every three hours. Do some research BEFORE taking this drug. It can be EXTREMELY beneficial if you use it the right way. Good luck all."

For Weight Loss "I started taking adipex two weeks ago and lost 8 first week. I haven't lost anything since. I do not have more energy and in fact get tired mid day. I actually can't even tell that I am taking it. I do eat less but that is about it and have dry mouth. I found a coupon online for Kroger and it only cost me $10.88 for a 1 month supply"

For Weight Loss "I started adipex on 5-23-16 exactly 4 weeks ago from today. From the first day I took it I noticed a huge difference. I lost almost all appetite, and had to force myself to eat even though I wasn't hungry. The best thing about it is when I did eat I took the time to think about what I was putting in my body and made better and healthier choices. There are times when I wanted something I knew wasn't good for me, but my will power is stronger and I turned from it. I drink only water...It helps me stay full. I also have been working out 2-3 times a week. Only side affect I've had was dry mouth the first week. I went to the doctor today and I've lost 23lbs in 4 weeks. I recommend this to anyone struggling with weight loss."

For Weight Loss "I started taking this pill on 5-10-16 weighing in at 245 lbs and today is 6-12-16 and I weighed in this morning at 229 lbs. I have lost a total of 16 lbs. I take it for two weeks and stop then start again. I feel this is helping me lose weight faster. I just started exercising this week so hopefully that will help with the weight loss. I take it earlier in the day because if I don't I will be up all night. It gives me energy more than I normally have but sometimes too much where I am talking tooo much and tooo fast and I have to do something...Maybe go for a jog..Lol. So as of right now I would recommend this."

For Weight Loss "In Jan of this year I weighed 170.0. I had some gallbladder issues that ended up with it being taken out and caused some weight gain. It is now May and my last weigh in was 141.4. I love my adipex and I would recommend it for anyone. I have had two children and so my body has been through the ringer. I love the energy it gives me and the appetite suppression. I also like that it makes you thirsty and the only thing that helps is water. I am now a water drinker and I drink well over the daily recommendation. I love this!!"

For Weight Loss "Been on generic adipex for 1 month. Start weight 183. Current weight 171. Drink lots of water on this. Dehydration can cause headaches ( get migraines already so this did not increase due to the medication). First day i was nauseous. first week was extreme dry mouth and complete lack of appetite. I had to remind myself to eat during the first week. At some point during the second week i was feeling a bit hungry but not the constant hunger i experienced before. As of the end of the first month the only persisting side effect if the dry mouth. I'm also not sleeping very well! but I just take tylenol pm for that. overall i feel good. i'm losing weight. im less hungry so i'm selecting better food choices. (chocoholic lol) and no serious issues."

For Weight Loss "I have been taking generic Adipex since Dec. 2015. I am 5 food tall and was 211 pounds. The first 11 pounds came off quick. Then I got down to 195. Now I am back up to 200 and can't drop the weight. My energy level is a lot better though. I don't really eat that much. So maybe my body is holding on to what I do eat. Who knows."

For Weight Loss "I started taking this medicine this past Friday. I have been up for the last two nights every hour on the hour! Please tell me that this will go away. I have also had a headache for the last two days. I stopped drinking caffeine so maybe that why. I'm ready to lose this weight! I'm 31 and 195 lbs my goal is to lose 50 lbs."

For Obesity "I started Adipex 37.5 a week ago today 04-07-2016 and I have gained 3 pounds??? I don't understand why it's not working I'm using my fitness pal to help track my meals but the most I get out of these is a headache and I'm very moody. I called my doctor but today is Saturday to see why I haven't been so successful as the others that I have been reading about my start date was 268.5 when I weighed myself today and 272 I'm so disappointed I paid $100 for the pills in Detroit, Michigan and my repeat visits are $75. I am not hungry but very gasy. I eat 3 meals per day and have not worked out yet."

For Weight Loss "hi / i started the pills on tuesday, 26 april 2016 / i have read all the reviews and no one said that you should only be on the medication for 30 days / then off / my doctor told me that I could use it again after 6 months / so twice a year / also, before he would give me the script I had to have an ekg / which I had / I do not think much of your doctors if they did not give you the ekg / I have lost 7 lbs so far / I do not eat after 6 pm and only drink milk or water"

For Obesity "Excellent experience so far, was on for 2 1/2 months and lost ~30 lbs. Really HELPS you control your food intake. You can push through and eat though, but its much much much easier to control yourself when you know you should stop eating but have that bottomless pit feeling in your stomach, or if you are just someone that eats when bored or emotional."

For Obesity "I was on phentermine several years ago but didn't really try to change my eating habits and so it didn't work. I decided to try it again because I just keep piling on the weight and am slowly killing myself. I've been on it 3 days now and have already lost 8.4 pounds! I know it's mostly water weight right now but seeing that scale move so quickly is such a big motivator. My starting weight was 443.8 and now I'm 435.4. I eat between 1200-2000 calories per day. I've noticed that I'm eating less each day though and it helps take away the cravings so I can make smart decisions about what to eat. I am also watching my carbs and sugar intake. Only side effect I've had is mild dry mouth and not feeling sleepy during the day like I normally do."

For Weight Loss "I took Adipex two years ago and loss 70 pounds! I'm 5'11 and went from size 20 to size 10/12. Dont let that 1-2 pounds per week loss without exercising fool you into thinking you dont have to. You should at least walk every day or some sweat producing exercise 3-4 days or week to get the most out of it. I used the seated elliptical 4-5 days per week. Its quick if you commit to exercise, water and the meds. No eating after 800pm. I've lost from 2lbs to 21pounds per month with exercise. I've gained 20 pounds back over the two years and am now wearing a 14. I went back on Adipex a month and a half ago and plan to get down to a 10/12 by June 30th. ;-)"

For Weight Loss "I was prescribed Apidex today 03/07/2016. I have taken my first pill so I really can't say right now. I weighed in on today at 278.6 pounds. I am 5ft. I am 45 years old. I am also taking a water pill called lasix because of fluid retention so I am looking forward to sharing my progress. I will go weigh in two weeks just to see. I have also decided no breads no sodas no red meats no fried foods and sweets. Praying for some results. Going to start walking on 03/10/16 to see what results I can see in two weeks."

For Obesity "I started taking Adipex on 02.25.2016. My beginning weight was 235 pounds and as of today, I weight 211.4. So far I have lost 23.6 pounds. This medicine does work. My doctor was not happy with my weight gain since I have been out of work due to an injury on the job and prescribed this medicine to me to help me lose weight. Working out does help. I probably would have more weight off of me but dealing with a neck and back injury does limit the ability to workout quite a bit. I have had one side effect from this medicine, dry mouth! I drink a ton of water now! I cannot stand the taste of sodas anymore since I have been drinking water for so long."

For Weight Loss "I started taking adipex on 11/14-4/15 and without diet and exercise I instantly lost 25 lbs. I weighed 150lb (only being 5'2) , by the end of the first month I was down to 126lb , my goal being 125lb. I stopped for a while and ended up gaining all but 3lbs back. Now I am back on it and I'm excited to see where I'll be a month from now. The side effects I have had both times is dry mouth, shakes, and short temper. I'll report back in about a month, maybe sooner."

For Weight Loss "Hey everyone! I started taking Adipex-P on 03/12. I am 5'5 and starting weight was 315!! :( Side effects: Dry mouth. Nothing else for me. It took about a week for the pill to curb my appetite. I drink lots of water! A couple of days I cheated on my diet but I never over ate like I used to. I have changed my eating habits tremendously. Currently I have not done any exercising but I plan to start. Today is 03/24 and I have lost 8 pounds! This is just the beginning on my weight loss journey. I recommend this pill."
