Reviews for Phentermine to treat Weight Loss

Sort by:

Lomaira (phentermine): "Hi! I’m in my late 30s and I’m a woman living in Dallas Texas. I was always skinny when I was young. I was a cheerleader and in the marching band so I never worried about what I ate. Fast forward 15 years and I had gained lots of weight and was close to obese. Both sides of my family suffer from obesity and I had bad sleep apnea. My doctor said if I lost weight it would help withit. Fast forward 6 months after starting Lomaira, I’ve lost 50 lbs and my sleep apnea has gotten much better. I’ve read some reviews on here that Lomaira didn’t give them energy. I find that odd because it gave me energy and minimized my appetite. I’ve tried the higher strengths of phentermine and it gave me so much energy, but I had bad side effects. I’m glad there’s a low dose and maybe it can help some of you."

Fastin (phentermine): "Terrible! Terrifying! Don't take Fastin! I took a whole tablet and within 15 minutes my heart was pounding out of my chest. It was so bad that I could see my shirt moving with every heartbeat. If you are prone to PANIC ATTACKS , this will make your heart race even more. My heart rate finally slowed after 1.5 hours and then I had chills and jitters. I took this drug because my doctor wouldn't give me rx medication for weight loss."

"Started taking phentermine 37.5mg April 10th 2018. 40 yrs old 5'4" SW 282lb CW 261lb as of May 14th. I have lost 21 lbs in just over a month. I do walk a lot and have been active. I calorie count, 1200 to 1700 calories a day. I try to do low carb, fruits, veggies. The pill suppresses my appetite so I don't crave or want food. My body tells me when I'm actually hungry so I eat. It does give me dry mouth so I drink A LOT of water. It does make me feel a little spacey the first hour or so. Then I get up and start doing stuff and am fine. It has really helped me with that jumpstart I really need. This second month I am upping my exercise and diet. I take only half a pill some days or even skip a pill sometimes so I can rely on myself. I do take 10 mg of melatonin at night to sleep. I did take Tylenol due to headaches at first and I think that had a lot to do with adjusting to eating less and no caffeine. I have no health problems, so this pill does great for me."

"Started taking Adipex 37.5mg and within two days lost 7 pounds. Have been on it 3 weeks and a total of 12 pounds lost so far. I feel like I have more energy, I truly can’t say enough good things about this medication. I truly tried to cut down portions, exercise and eat healthy prior to getting on something for weight loss but it didn’t help. My doctor explained after the age of 35 your metabolism slows down and I was also on an antidepressant in months prior that caused me to gain the weight. I should be exercising now to see more results but I’ve had a lot going on..adipex is seriously the best thing."

"I've started phentermine 05/05/18 and I have lost 9 pounds in 8 days. This drug is great. I have had problems sleeping and dry mouth but it's worth it. I'm only trying to lose 20 more pounds. I lost 20 pounds from diet and exercise and was at a stand still so my doctor gave me phentermine. I'm down 28 pounds all together. I'm only going to continue drug until July. My goal should be reached by then."

"This is the 2nd time for me taking phentermine - the first was a few years ago - took it for 2 months and no weight loss. I started on it in Nov. 2017 again - today is May 9, 2018 and still no weight loss. I do have COPD which I take medications for and don't know if that causes it or not. I am 73, small boned and weighed between 98 and 115 - I am 5'2". I just started on meds for the COPD so really doubt that that would be the reason."

"I posted last week under the name Donna, and this is an update. I'm 54 yrs old and weighed 176.2 lbs (5'4" tall). I started this on 4/24 at 37.5mg dose. I wasn't able to sleep the first two days, so I cut the tab in half and take it between 7:30-8:00 am now. I'm sleeping better, but it does wear off towards the end of the day, but it's fine, because it gets me through the day and dinner. In six days, I've lost 3.2 lbs. I'm thrilled. I had to force myself to eat the first two days. That's not the case now, but I don't crave anything, which is great. I'm eating smaller portions and healthier. I try to walk at least 3-4 times a week, not too strenuous just yet, I need to drop at least 20 lbs. before I can do more aggressive exercise. I do not plan on staying on this more than a month if possible, because I do not want to depend on a pill to lose weight. I just needed a jump start. Overall I'd recommend this, but there are some side effects, like the sleep issue."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I took adipex four years ago and it was amazing. I lost 50 pounds, And felt great! I started it back up this week because I got married and fell off the healthy food wagon. This time around I've had headaches and a racing heart. I think I'm going to try taking my pill every other day and see if the side effects lighten up any."

"I'm 5'4" and weighed 176 lbs. I started on Tuesday, 4/24 with the 37.5MG dose. I took it about 8:30AM - at first I had dry mouth and felt as if I had too much caffeine. That night I could not sleep; got maybe 4 hours. So Wed I took 1/2 tab and still have no real desire to eat. I was still very restless trying to sleep last night. I'm hoping it will subside. Today I took 1/2 pill again, but at 8:00AM. Hoping tonight will be a little better. I'm not weighing myself daily, so we'll see on Tues, 5/1 where I stand."

"3 years ago I took phentermine 15mg (per request) for my SW of 287lb! It took me a year, with a couple different ‘stop weeks’ of taking the pill to boost myself. I lost 60lb and felt amazing! I stopped taking it for almost a year, and just two days ago started again as I have upped 20lb. This time my Dr prescribed 37.5. She said that it is safe to take as long as needed as long as you lose weight and FEEL okay. (She attends obesity clinics quite regularly!). This time around, I am now on blood pressure meds but I am going to closely monitor it now. Side effect of this medication are decreased appetite -yay! Noticed this day one. You do get energy, but make sure you take it as soon as you get up!! Dry mouth is a downfall but ya kinda get used to it, and more water intake is never bad!! My heart is kinda racey at night which I didn’t notice with the lower dose. It’s not constant, and I usually only notice it once in laying in bed. I will update soon!!!!"

"I am a 54yrs. old female and 5'3, I weigh 159lbs., I started on 37.5mg, but I cut the pill in half on 04/22/2018, and I have lost 4lbs., in 2days. My goal weight is 130-135lbs. I'm not a big eater, & I cook & eat healthy, but have problem with drinking sodas all day and no water. My B/P started to rise, because of the extra weight gain. I started walking 3-4 miles a day & still no good results after walking for 6 months, so I asked my doctor for help because it's very hard to lose the extra pounds and to stop drinking sodas. The good thing about taking this medicine; it takes away your craving for sweets, etc. I don't have any taste for sodas and now I love water. I still walks 3-4miles a day & I have so much more energy. My doctor said, I may not need to be on the medicine for only 1month. Well, I'll let you know in one month the results. Good luck!"

"I'm a 48 yr.old female who is 5 ft. 3 and 153 lbs. I started Pentermine in Feb. 2018 @ 165lbs.& so far I have dropped 12lbs. I'm taking the 15mg. yellow & black capsules but I wanted the blue & white capsules because I used them several years ago and they seem to work faster & curb your appetite better. I go to the doctor next week and I plan to ask her if she can write a prescription for the blue & white capsules. I was hoping to be closer to my goal of 128lbs. by now."

"So today I filled my script for this med, I am 34 years old Female, 5'6 and weight 234lbs. I have tried everything form of diet and exercise with no luck of loosing weight. 2 months ago I started Thrive, what a waste of 400$ for the first 3 weeks energy was through the roof and I dropped 25lbs over the 5 weeks I did the program which was amazing but the effects gradually wore off and the product stopped working. A while ago my Dr gave me a script for this and I never picked it up, well today I did and I am hoping to see results over the next 2 months I'd like to loose another 30lbs if possible Ill keep everyone posted (I also was able to find a coupon online that made this $11.70!)"

"I started on 4/12/18 with a dosage of 37.5mg. I've added clean eating and exercising for at least 40 minutes a day or more. Weight at the beginning was 182lb and now as of today 4/17/2018, I weigh 174.8.lb So far, it's working. I just get a little anxious here and there. Minor headaches and loss of appetite. People aren't kidding when they say they have to force themselves to eat. Good Luck to all on your journey."

"Hi! I started taking phentermine 30mg daily with a starting weight of 100.7kg (222lbs.) 8 weeks in I am currently 90.5kg (199.5)! (Broke the 200 pound mark!) Side effects for me eased after a couple of weeks, but I had quite intense nausea and difficulty sleeping initially. If I don’t take it by about 10am then I skip that day and take it the next as usual. For me it really kills my desire to eat, and knocks the edge of sugar cravings etc (my downfall!) and just gives me the space to make good food choices and pay attention to portion control. I have joined a gym as was advised to make the most of this medication (my GP only happy to prescribe a short course initially, plus, expensive!) and have found working out fun and really helping with the cm loss :) My next mini goal is 85kg (187.4lbs) with an ideal goal of under 78kg (172lbs)...will try to remember to post here again when I’ve finished my course, good luck!"
