Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

"This is my 2nd time on Phentermine 37.5mg. Started taking it back last year on 8/20/2017. First day it worked wonders!! Decreased in appetite, burst in energy and of course dry mouth. First prescription it worked. Second prescription it was still working but the effects of wanting to eat more were creeping back. I lost a total of around 15 pounds in 1 month & 10 pounds in the 2nd month. SW: 186lb. Today I'm back on it again because I gained again. When I got on the scale this morning I weighed in @ 194.2lb. Took my first pill around 7 something this morning. It's about two hours later & I still feel the same nothing has changed. I'm eating pretzel peanut butter nuggets as I'm typing. I hope and pray this 2nd time it works just as it did last year. Maybe this time I have to wait a couple hours. Also, while taking my pill this morning I also took my multivitamin & probiotics gummies as well as my vitamin D gel pill. Not sure if this is the reasoning it's not taking effectiveness yet"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I initially began to take Adipex-P 37.5mg 3 years ago. I began to notice an increase in energy and did not feel hungry. My side effects were dry mouth and palpitations. I use it for 2 months. I exercised 5 days a week and lost a lot of weight. I was able to fit into old clothes. I ended up pregnant and gained it all back. Unfortunately, when I tried it again last year it was no longer effective. My appetite was never suppressed, no increased energy or side effects. I took it for a whole month thinking eventually it would work but didn't. I stopped taking it and read that many other people experienced the same thing."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "Began taking this May 10th 2018 weighing 296lb. One week later May 18th I weigh 182lb and gone down one jean size! I have the dry mouth side effect, little tired in afternoon but its working. Dr stated he would only give me 3 months to lose weight as Ohio has strict regulations. 14 pounds in one week and I'm so happy. Much more to go."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I started Adipex near the end of March at 236.5lb - today I am down to 213.4. To me this is a success. I do NOT consider this pill to be a miracle drug. I still feel hunger, I still crave and I still struggle. But I am putting in the work. I have changed my entire diet and attitude. I know that Adipex has helped me along the way but I am super proud of myself. I know that this weight loss isn't just from a pill but from me."

"Started taking the recommended dose today. Not sure what to expect and when it will kick in. I am 23 years old and approximately 192 pounds. I’m hoping to loose at least 30 pounds. More would be great. I’m starting to feel anxious but I think it’s me over thinking things. We will see how the first day goes and hopefully this pill can work for me because I would love to loose this weight before my wedding in 4 months. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated."

Lomaira (phentermine): "I have to lose 45 lbs before I can be approved for weight loss surgery. Dr. wanted me on Adipex, but I was very hesitant because every time I took over the counter weigh loss meds I have chest pains and elevated heart rate. After explaining my worry, she decided to start me on Lomaira. My weight tends to flucutate so badly, but I started the pills Saturday morning 4-28-18. Today, 5-1-18 I have now lost 4lbs. I do NOT have more energy. However, I'm never hungry. I only eat when my belly rumbles and becomes slightly upset (telling me to eat even though my head is telling me I am not hungry) which is roughly twice a day and when I do eat it's nowhere near what I used to. And I haven't had 1 side effect whatsoever. Hoping to shed the 40 pounds by next month."

"I was losing weight which was a positive. On the other hand I was losing my mind. There is something called sedation syndrome, which I was never advised of the side effects. It is 10 weeks since the last time I took it. Do I miss it? yes. What it did to my brain and what I went through. I hope everyone reads this and think real hard...Before taken this drug. look into the side effects. Its not work it."
