"286 LBS - I am 52 yrs old, I am disabled and have gained over 100 Lbs in 5 years. After back surgery, neck surgery & being diagnosed with lupus and fibro the weight has become to hard to take off. This is my first day I have taken 1/2 a pill. I am nervous because i have anxiety issues. But I need help so I will continue."

Lomaira (phentermine): "I've been struggling with my weight for the last 20 years. I was fed up and went to see a doctor for the first time. I heard about weight loss products that are FDA approved from a friend. My doctor told me there was a new low dose product called Lomaira and told me I may be a good candidate. I've lost about 30 lbs. in 3 months and I don't really feel the side effects. I take the medication about 2 times a day which is less than the maximum amount. I'm really happy I found it and hope that I will continue to lose weight. I think I just needed to see some positive results for once and my whole outlook on life has changed."

"Was prescribed this medication by a weight loss specialist MD. The idea was to help control appetite while increasing energy levels and gradually losing weight as to keep it off. Was taking it once a day for up to 3 months then off for a few months then start up again. Results were no decrease in hunger or appetite at all, no increase in energy levels, no weight loss period. As a matter of fact I actually gained weight. It was like taking a placebo but more expensive."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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"

"Last week I went to see my Endocrinologist and he sat with me and did a meal plan. He offered phentermine. I usually don't take drugs, but all the natural methods I tried didn’t work well. I took the medicine on Friday 37.5mg. On Thursday I weighed in at 219lbs. On Sunday I weighed myself at home and the scale said 212lb. I didn’t have any clothes on when I weighed myself. Was shocked only a couple days have gone by. The pills give me A LOT of energy! It last all day and into the night. After I take them, I do laundry and clean and feel euphoric. All I want to do is be active. I cut out sugar since Thursday and the meds make me feel really full, so I take a couple bites of salad or an boiled egg and I feel so full. It does give me dry mouth, so I drink more water. Makes my heart beat a little faster, but I hope this passes. So far so good! I just have to make sure I measure my food when I go off the pills and continue to cut out processed foods, bad carbs and sugar!"

"I started taking Phentermine on 9/2 and in the first week I lost 11 pounds!! The second week I did not lose anything but we had to evacuate due to a hurricane and even though I was never hungry when I did eat it wasn't the best food for me plus I don't think I thought to drink enough water. My third week (back at home) I am back on my 1300 calorie a day diet and tons of water I have dropped another 3 pounds in 3 days. Side effects for me are dry mouth (real bad but that's good for the water) jittery feeling but not all the time. Insomnia and elevated heart rate after any kind of exercise. I should mention I haven't exercised much at all. 46 year old female starting weight 241lbs on 9/2 and weight today 228lbs 9/24"

"Awesome pill!! Follow directions & you should be good! No regrets. Wish that Medicaid was still paying for it though. It currently cost me $25 from my pharmacy. Speak to your doctor first & then if it's a go~ Go HARD!! GOOD LUCK!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "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 "

"I have been taking phentermine for one week now, it has drastically suppressed my appetite and gave me a nice boost of energy. I take the 37.5 mg and I take half when I wake up and half at lunch time. I eat low carb food and I take in about 1350 calories a day. Because I am not usually hungry I have to schedule my meal times and stick to them. The only side effect I have suffered from is dry mouth and that's only if I'm not drinking enough water. In one week so far I have lost 8.5 pounds. This is just with healthier eating. I work a sedentary job and don't exercise. This medicine, so far, has been a godsend. No more mindless snacking or feeling hungry all the time."

"I'm starting tomorrow. I took it before but that dr only gave me like 7 Mg's. This is 37.5mg. I'm just worried because I take prozac too and u read online that it could interact with it. I'd anybody else on an SSRI?"

"1994: (24 yo, f, 5'7" @ 220 lbs) I tried phentermine w/ high protein/low carb diet 30 min exercise/day. In 6 months I was 130lbs. I gained it back + some in a year. 2018: (48 yo, 273 lbs=morbidly obese). Thru a local clinic I restarted phentermine (37.5 mg) w/ weekly B12 shots. I weigh in w/ the nurse once a week & get my shot. Every fourth week I meet w/ the doctor. I've lost 13 lbs. as of 9/7/18 (2 mo). For 3 weeks I was plateaued at 270 lbs. It has really curbed my appetite & reduced my cravings so my calorie intake is less. I am also eating healthier with fruits & fiber. My 6 mo goal is 50 lb loss, as I am increasing my exercise with an elliptical machine. I'll do the meds for one more month, as it is recommended for max 12 weeks. I have a bit of dry mouth & drink at least a gallon of water a day. My blood pressure was slightly elevated before the meds, but the doctor has not been concerned. As for the B12 shots, I don't know if there has been any benefit."

"8/31/18 SW 248lb, GW 150lb. 47 yo female 5'8". Tried everything on the block after putting on 50lbs after a radical hysterectomy. Today is day one 37.5mg...it's midnight and I'm still wide awake with a nasty headache. No issues with dry mouth because I'm slightly nauseated, so hyper-salivating. Praying this works. Time for some melatonin and see if I can get some sleep."

"Female 24 5'6. I started taking this medication about 3 months ago I started at 232 lbs. You need to exercise and make healthier eating habits that's the only way you will see dramatic results. I'm now down to 181.4 lbs of as today. If you can't exercise all that much I suggest taking a walk in the morning and night for around 10-20 mins at least. This medication gives you horrible dry mouth but I guess that's good because you will increase your water intake, never quenched my thirst by the way. With dedication and self control you will see a lot of improvement. I lost weight to quickly and now have some loose skin around the arms inner thighs and stomachs area but found that Palmer firming cocoa butter has helped quite a bit plus it's only like 5 bucks at Wal-Mart and you smell like chocolate. Good luck"

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."
