Reviews for Phentermine to treat Weight Loss

Sort by:

"I've been taking Phentermine (generic of adipex) for 6 weeks now & it's worked very well for me. The first 2 days it gave me super energy & my mind was in overdrive but in the days since, it's been just enough to give me that extra boost to walk/exercise regularly & do things I've been putting off. I have had no change in mood or increased anxiety & in my opinion, going without food is likely what causes some to experience irritability. My metabolism is high because it keeps my heart rate up (pulse monitored on fitbit). I was 246 lbs & now down to 218lb. This medicine is very effective at curbing appetite. The only negative side effect I've had is mild constipation but it's probably due to my diet, not the medication. Originally my Dr was only going to allow me to take for 2 months but due to my results & the fact that the medicine hasn't lost potency on me as of now, he extended my rx 2 more months. I'm very satisfied with how this medicine has worked."

"I took this drug once 6 1/2 years ago and lost 20 pounds. I managed to keep it off for about 5 years and then stopped paying attention and gained it back. My doctor has started me back on it again for 30 days. The first time I had lots of side effects like bad headaches and dry mouth. This time I have no side effects but I now know to drink a crazy amount of water. Both times it took a few days to start working. I still feel hungry at meal times but I can eat a very small amount of food and be full. I eat carbs in very small amounts like 1/4 c rice or potatoes or 1/2 slice whole grain bread for fiber. I stay under 40 carbs a day. I do not eat pasta or desserts. I do have to cut back on the food but use the drug for support. I never take the drug after 3:00 pm or it will keep me up all night. I try to wait as long as possible in the morning to take it so I get the effect through dinner. I shoot for 10:00 am. It's hard to get enough water when taking this drug so drink!"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "Started Adipex 9/10/18. Female - 5’9 SW 202 lbs. I have always been thinner until steroids for arthritis over the years caused weight gain. Goal is 160 lbs. My Monthly check up at Dr. 10/6 weighed in 191 lbs. Today 188 lbs. I know my diet is under what I should have. Usually 700-900 calories a day. Light exercise. More energetic. Curbed appetite. No eating after 5:30 supper, no sweets, chicken only for fast food ( no fries). If I want a mid day snack, it’s an apple with peanut butter. One cheat day, up to 1400 calories, water only. Have dry mouth and insomnia. Faster heartbeat when active. No rage feelings. Actually great mood because of the energy and feeling proud of myself for losing. I will gain a little back as I will have to add more calories into my diet, but have the mind set to eat healthier and hopefully losing the weight, I will be more energetic when off Adipex. Good luck to all."

"I started taking adipex on 10/04 18 I have hypothyroidism and it's very difficult to lose weight. I'm only taking 1/ 2 a pill in the morning. My current weight is 169.4lb I want to lose at least 15 pounds. Have a more than normal but not exaggerated, dry mouth of course, but it makes me feel happy overall . First those people that have hypothyroidism they will understand what I mean. I feel alive !!!good luck to all my hypo friends out there. Will post my weight loss in a month."

"Started this over a month ago and initially lost 6 pounds. Can’t say I’m very happy with it as I expected a little more from it. I’ve gained some back and am still on it. You cannot mess up while on it that’s for sure. You do feel fuller faster, and carbs HAVE to be cut almost completely out. I don’t eat much anyway and wasn’t expecting to have to cut down even more than I already have. I usually only eat 1 to 2 meals if that every day. So I’m wondering if there is anything better out there???"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I'm 44 years old weight today is 322lb. I have had success with this before (several years ago) I can't remember exactly how much but at least 20lbs in 2 months, I also weighed less then. I have tried to take this at least 2 other times since but have stopped only a few days in because of the headaches. I'm about to give it a try again because I know it helps and hopefully this time the headaches won't be so bad. Wish me luck."

"SW 183 (oct 1st) GW 145 CW 178 (oct 3rd) I’m 5’6” 25 years old. Literally a miracle pill, I only take half of the 37.5 in the morning and I am barely hungry. I also work out everyday, which I’ve always done and in the past haven’t really lost weight at all. I almost have to force myself to eat, but I’ll force myself to eat some kind of fruit or vegetable. Only thing is I had anxiety the first time I took it, so I’ve been taking 5htp in the morning and at night and I’ve been better. Idk if it’s due to the 5htp or if my body just got used to the pill. Can’t complain about 5 pounds down on my third day!"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I’ve been taking Phentermine for 4 weeks. I’ve lost 11 lbs. It has helped my mood and really helped to suppress my appetite. It does make me sweat more than usual and I am always thirsty but it makes me drink more water which is good. I am dreading the time when I have to stop taking the medication. It has been so helpful. I do exercise 3 days a week and eat a 1,800 calorie diet."

Fastin (phentermine): "My first time taking the fastin pill was yesterday and I was very scared my heart started beating so fast and loud I could hear and feel it from my heart up to my throat pounding. I now see where every one says you can cut it in half and try it from there soo I’m gonna try that and I’ll post results later on."

"I'm a 43 year old male. I'd taken phentermine 13 years ago with good results. Over the last year and a half, I'd gained about 30 pounds, so I spoke to my doctor about something to control my appetite, especially since I work odd hours and tend to eat. I started 3 days ago on this round. My only side effect so far has been being a bit jittery. However, I've had more than a couple positives - I'm much more alert during the day, I haven't had to take any sleeping pills like before because I'm exhausted by bedtime, and it has curbed my appetite significantly."

"Two weeks now on phentermine and I've dropped 12 lbs. I've also been meal prepping and limiting caloric intake to about 1000 calories a day. Lots of protein, moderate carbs and under 20gm fat a day. I'm not hungry and I have enough energy to get through the day. Started at 253 lbs and goal is 170-150. The first day was rough...really bad headache and jittery. But since then, I've been fine. Lots of water as well as soluble fiber to keep the constipation at bay. Yesterday I put on pants I haven't worn in two years. I miss sugar, but not craving it. It's also fun to be cooking again! My peers see my meal prep and think I've gone out for take out. This med is the kick start and motivation I need to keep going. I'm super excited to see what I can keep doing!!"

"4'7" and I weighed 193lb when I asked the doctor for help, two days ago. He prescribed this and I began this morning. I'm 185lb today and while I was jittery this morning, I mowed the lawn and got stuff done. Things I might have put off. I have chosen not to eat for a few days to detox my body. I am drinking a ton of water. After the detox and initial boost to my weight loss plan, I'm reintroducing fruit to my diet -- bananas for potassium, peaches for the antioxidant vitamin C, etc. After that, I'll reintroduce salads and greens. Then legumes. My goal weight is 120lb again, because I'm 64 and would feel marvelous if I got to that level. My goal is to be more health oriented. No more gasping for breath, no more sore knees, no more inability to bend over. I'm WAYYY to young to be this old."

"I'm a 30 year old female who weighted a whopping 297 pounds. I was taking medication for some other health issues and started to gain weight over the next year I went from 230 to 270 in no time. I have type 2 diabetes, and other health problems. So I began taking phentermine in June first 3 days I lost 10 pounds which I knew was water weight. I had bad habits I had to stop like eating after 7pm and drinking milk by the gallons. Eating leftovers, eating mexican food etc. I've been on this medicine for 3 months and I'm 236lb to date. That's a whopping 61 pounds in 3 months. You can't just rely on the pill. You have to drink lots of water half your body weight in water. You have to measure out your portions I'm on a 1200 calorie diet and under a Doctors care. Every month I get checked If you stick with it and follow a low calorie low carb diet this medicine will work and its changed my life. I'm continuing my journey to get to my goal of 155-160 pounds."

"I was on this diet pill back in 2015 lost 34 pounds in just two months! It was so great and made me feel so much better about myself... Well it is expensive to keep going back to Dr to get more so I stopped them and gained all of it back. I then tried it out again in 2016 and from the first day it made me feel like awful, no energy or anything. Just felt really irritable so I stopped them before I even took them all"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "It was great at helping lose weight but once you come off of it, you'll gain it all right back unless you make serious changes to your diet. It helps give you a kick start but it's never permanent. Besides, they'll only prescribe it for up to 3 months at a time."

Lomaira (phentermine): "I started this medication 10 days ago. I’ve lost 5 lbs. I’ll weigh myself again in another 10 days. I have had virtually no side effects- just more energy, which is a good thing because I have a chronic illness that causes fatigue. But no heart palps or dry mouth! I was 191 lbs on 8/22/18 and now on 9/2 I am 186 lbs. honestly, it just makes me forget about hunger."

"First day cannot sleep I’m so hoping I can sleep tonight and this part wears off. Jittery my head shaking more than usual. Weight 3 pound less and that’s obviously water weight I’ve only 16 pound to lose and this works unlike some very expensive treatments I tried like saxenda weight loss injection or mysimba (Contrave in US) which cost a fortune and did nothing. It should be easy on these pink pill phentermine and hoping the insomnia and jitters go away soon I’m 52 years old and 5ft 4 and weigh 168 pounds goal is 152 pounds"

"I'll be hopefully starting this medication tomorrow! I expect successful results within this 30 day trial. I have already planned out diet, and exercise. H; 6'1 SW; 321 GW; 221 (-100 lbs.) Diet : - Mediterranean Diet - Water + Vitamin Water - NO BREADS - Minimum dairy intake Exercise: - 30/45 minute workouts 3 times a week (Starting Goal) with basic brisk walking, and cardio. I expect a strong bolt of energy, so I am going to try my best to try and be wore out by the end of the day to get a good eight hour rest. Overall, I'm excited for the results and experience ** I'll update in a month**"

"Starting weight 243 lb. Weighed in today, approximately two months later at 215 lb. I have so much more energy, and feel better about myself. I'm down two pants sizes and don't eat near as much as I did, nor do I eat out very much anymore. My goal weight is 180 lb. the only negative side effects I've experienced are some palpitations, extreme dry mouth, increased urination, and some hair loss off my head... I have thick hair so I'm not too concerned. I don't work out, but I have a crawling baby and have taken on a second job."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I am a 48 year old female when have been battling weight issues for over 10 years. I stopped smoking cigarettes 3/3/13 and my weight took a jump up for the worst. I lost my will power after gaining so much weight. I began to stay in the house and withdraw from social events because of being ashamed. I began taking adipex 8/15/18 weighting 234lbs. As of 8/22/18 I weigh 227lbs. THAT'S 7LBS IN 7 DAYS! Today, 8/26/18, I haven't weighed myself but I'm sure I've lost more. I have no appetite or cravings. Now that I see results, there is no turning back. Just wait until I as exercise, oh boy! Side effects are slight headaches, jittery, sweating and loose stools. The jitteriness give me energy so I don't mind."

"I started 37.5Mg on 7/2/18. I weighed 217lbs, I am 5'4" and just turned 57 years old. Today is 8/18/18 and I weigh 212 pounds. I am very discouraged... I also changed my diet to exclude all meat and my diet consists of mainly tofu and mushrooms ...salads..hummus. I do have a sweet tooth but keep my total calories between 1000 and 1200 a day. I have noticed that I get hungry very late at night so I started dividing my food up so that I could eat a little in the evening and not go over my calories. I am due to see my doctor on Oct 2nd which is three months after beginning the pill and will go from there. I will continue with the phentermine until that time and will give another update then. I had such high hopes after reading the reviews. Guess for me there is no magic pill and this will be a marathon not a sprint."
