Reviews for Phentermine to treat Weight Loss

Sort by:

"I started phentermine 37.5 along with chromium piccolinate 200 mg on 2/5/18 and weighed 265. I weighed in yesterday at 251. I am 46 years old. I am following a high protein low carb lifestyle change diet @ 1000 or less calories a day. I have been eating 4 small meals with no sugar, bread, pasta, rice or starchy vegetables and no processed or frozen foods!! I drink a gallon of water a day. I have done very little exercise but definitely intend to get off my butt and do it. These combined medications keep my appetite at bay so i rarely feel hungry and thats a great thing let me tell ya!! I had dry mouth the first week but now its gone. This is not a magic...you gotta make the changes, do the work and be patient. Good luck to all who try the phentermine journey!"

"I took Phentermine for the first time yesterday. I am a 23yo female, 5’9 and type one diabetic. I started my weight loss journey September 2017 at 215 pounds. I lost 35 pounds with just diet and exercise (about 1,000 calories a day and working out 3-4 times per week) but I hit a month-long plateau that I just couldn’t get past. My doctor prescribed 15 mg of Phentermine each morning. After I took it yesterday I felt a little jittery for the first couple hours and my blood sugar dipped, I also had dry mouth later in the evening. I also did not feel hungry at all, but I still ate about 1,000 calories in fear of my blood sugar continuing to drop. Other than that no side effects, I had great energy all day. I did workout last night, about 30 minutes of body weight training. I weighed myself this morning at 1.5 pounds less than yesterday! I believe with diet and exercise this drug will help me meet my goals."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I started February 6th at 275lb and today Feb 18th I'm 255.6lb. I've started the south beach diet phase 1 as well to help. High protein, low carb has worked in my favor. I will say that I've experienced extreme dry mouth. I'm excited to see my results!"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I am a mom to 4 kids and just turned 30. I am 5 feet and I was weighing 166 lbs. I had never ever gained weight. Even through my pregnancies it was a hard for me to gain weight and when I gave birth to all 4 kids each time I went back down to normal like if I never gave birth. I am not a person that eats my life away because I barely have time to eat, I am always busy and on the go. I have always worked out and tried to eat as clean as possible. Although I packed all the weight around my butt and boobs and looked very nice on my petite frame, I honestly hated it. On 1/24/18 I went to the dr and started this medication. I have not experienced any side effects besides maybe some dry mouth. I am also never hungry at all. It’s like I have to be forced to eat. I went back to the doctor on 2/8/18 and I weighed in at 152 lbs. Literally 14 pounds in just 3 weeks and I haven’t even had the time to work out at all like I did before."

""I started taking this pill today 02/09/2018. I am 37 years old 5'4" My SW 185lbs. GW 155lb. This is the largest I have been since I had my child 19 years ago.

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I started my journey Oct 2017 @213lbs. Today, Feb 2018 I'm already down 22lbs!! Drink LOTS of water, no pop (soda), watch calorie & carb intake. My dr put me on a 1200cal diet. Log into Myfitnesspal.com to keep track. Walk as much as you can and hit the gym too if you are able too. Main thing is LOTS of water and control you food portions. Good luck! I'm on 2nd dose can't wait to see where I am in 2 months :)"

Lomaira (phentermine): "I've been taking Lomaira for about 6 months, off and on. I took one pill a day for 2 months and quickly lost 15 lbs, even tho I prescribed to take 3x/day. It helped me to eat less when I did eat and not eat as often. Once I got in the habit of eating smaller portions, I would stop for a couple weeks. But my appetite always increased. I don't take it much anymore as I'm trying to use it as a tool and not as a habit. I've managed to lose 6 lbs more doing this. I started at 189lb and now 168lb, and I'm 5'1", 33 years old, no kids. My job is active but my off days I spent eating a lot. I've recommended this to several people, and so yes I would recommend."

"Wow. I did a previous review, just started September 3rd. I had to let everyone know about this week. Four full days, I have lost 6 pounds, with not one day of exercise (SW 220lb with clothes on, more like 218/219; currently 212.4) Not that I'm trying not to, this week just has been a stressful week. I know this is probably mostly water weight, but it is very encouraging. I do take 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 at lunch. When I tell you I was not hungry ... had to force myself to eat. I started out with a 1400 calorie diet, but never went over 1200. So, I decided to do a full week at 1200, until I get back in the gym Saturday. I'll see how much energy I have; may need to up calories a couple hundred. I also get B12 shots, second one this Friday. Also, big tip ladies and gents; download MyFitnessPal. I have never counted calories and it keeps you accountable. You can do this ... I know you can."

"Started February 3rd. Wish I would've gotten to the review that said, "Take 1/2 in the morning, the other half at noon to start ... lol". Within an hour, I felt a bit of nausea, with a slight headache. I may be at fault, because I'm so used to drinking coffee; I drank half a cup before I realized my mistake. Pros: Definitely decreased my appetite, felt a burst of energy for about 6 hours, no craving for sugar. Cons: Headache, not a throbbing headache, but just the annoying kind *(could be from withdrawal of coffee ... I usually drink at least 2-3 cups a day) Nausea. Little dizziness, slight dry mouth. Since weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise, getting an upper hand on my diet is crucial. I'll come back at the end of the month, with another review. 58 years old, SW 220, GW 170. I'll be happy at 180, because I start losing where I don't want. I have a muscular physique, (underneath the fat ... really I do). Hormones all over the place. Stay Strong Ladies (and any Gents)."

"I am a 5ft 5in female. I've been on Phentermine for 6 days. I have lost 11 lbs. so far (I started my diet 4 days before the pills). I weighed 290lb.... (OMG don't judge me!!) and now I weigh 279lb. I eat one small portion a day, have 3- 100 calorie snacks, and drink slim fast shakes 2x a day. I will weigh myself next Friday and keep you updated. Also I have not exercised once yet. Next week I will begin exercising for 1 hour 5x a week with my mom."

"Started drug 1/3/2018 and didn't make it the full month! I guess I won the lottery when it came to the side effects. Started with dry mouth but I had energy and the pill was working so I thought I could deal with it. Around week 3 the fun started. Here we go: ringing in my ears/sensitivity to sound, hand tremors, numbness from my elbows to my hands which made movement difficult, euphoria, dizziness, ABSOLUTE CONFUSION.. I had trouble focusing when speaking to people and trouble forming sentences, flushed face, and intense jaw clenching. I am really bummed because I did lose 8 lbs in the month I was on it. Darn...."

"So I started Phentermine 37.5gm today 1/30/18 and I took half of a pill at 7:30 am and I must say I haven't been hungry at all, I had to force myself to eat. The only side effects I've had so far is blurred vision and REALLY dry mouth. I've been extremely thirsty consuming only water. My SW is 196.5lb and my GW is at least 140lb. I'm 5'0 so my weight is really becoming an issue. I will keep you updated."

"I started Phentermine 37.5mg on 1/22/2018. Starting weight 230lb today 1/28/2018 I weighed 219lb. Eleven pounds loss the first week! I have tons of energy and I have only had a few side effects the first 3 days. I am doing a low carb diet with my calories at 1200 a day and I keep my carbs between 20-25. I eat NO pasta, bread, added sugar, white rice or potatoes. I did not work out this first week I wanted to see how my body would respond. I will add in 30min a day starting this week then add as I go! Can’t wait to weight in at the Dr in 3 weeks!!"

"Started taking this medication for weight loss on 1/16/18. So far had side effects of dry mouth, sweating, restless night. On the plus side I immediately felt lots of energy and less cravings too. Will check back to post progress in the next few weeks."

"I started Phentermine April 2017. The first week I had so much energy I didn't even know what to do with it all. I was on a constant high. After a week I had to stop the drug because I never slept. Maybe three hours a night. After a few days I couldn't take the lack of sleep. Three weeks later I reintroduced the Phentermine. The high wasn't as bad but I still suffered from insomnia. I had to permanently stop taking it because I was constantly taking naps during the day to catch up on sleep. The plus side is it does curb your appetite."

"I started that phentermine on 10/22/17 I have lost 40 pounds ..my starting weight was 278lb I have had side effects dry mouth , constipation and rash and one or two heart palpitations. I have changed my eating habits I only do 100 carbs a day if any. My weight loss has slowed down as of 1/01/18 not losing as much weekly. Some of my clothes went from a size 22/24 to 16/18. Understanding its a short term med - it is really a lifestyle change! Very helpful medicine for someone who is overweight and needs a new chance at life medically"

"I started phertermine 37.5 mg on 11/15 sw 158lb, 5’1, 34 yrs old. Lost 10 pounds first month (12/13). Weeks after I was stuck at 148 and now finally down to 145 going into week 7. I learned you have to drink tons of water and it does curb your appetite but you still need to eat healthy to lose the weight. I noticed I wasn’t losing weight by only eating small breakfast and dinner portions you have to incorporate small meals throughout the day to be at a certain calorie intake in order to lose the pounds. My goal is 125 pounds."

"Day 1 for me on this medicine. Tried talking to my doctor about surgery, but she recommended I try this first (combined with exercise). She believes that I should be able to lose at least 10 pounds in the next month, and 30 (in total) in the next 6. Todays weight is 265lb. Hoping to get down to 185lb. I am short (5'1) and in my 30s. Nothing has helped me before (even when I worked out aggressively twice a day 4 times a week, in 3 months I only lost 13 pounds), so hoping for better results."

"I started Phentermine 8 weeks ago and I have lost 15 pounds so far with little effort. I love the medication because it gives me plenty of energy and takes away my appetite. But, like others have said, it causes a dry mouth and severe constipation. I have to take laxatives and stool softeners daily. But it's worth it. After about six weeks I noticed that it's not working as well as it used to and I'm not losing as much weight as I did in the beginning, but it still is controlling my appetite. The downfall for me is that it makes my heart skip a beat now and then and I feel a little heaviness in my chest from time to time, which is scary. It is definitely caused by the Phentermine. My doctor tells me I should stop taking it now, so I will."
