Reviews for Phentermine to treat Weight Loss

Sort by:

Fastin (phentermine): "I've only been taking fastin XR for 3 days so I can't report weight loss yet. But so far I love this stuff!!! Total energy, alertness, appetite suppression. I don't take the full dose of pill at a time. So far I've only needed one pill per day, I break them open and spread it over 5-6 doses. That way the dose isn't too intense. I'm a person who snacks all day and taking this I'm really not hungry. I eat when I get a little weak so I know I need food but I don't get true hunger pangs. Also I normally sleep about 10 hrs a night. I've only needed 4-6 hrs of sleep each night and wake up totally alert. I have no doubt I will reach my goal weight using this!"

"Starting weight due to other medications was 297lb. I'm on my 6th month and I'm down to 223lb and I'm still losing weight. I have found the key to this diet pill is make sure you follow a low calorie, low carb diet and make sure you are drinking half your body weight in water. For example if you weigh 200lb pounds then you need to drink 100oz of water a day. I have had my flaws and fell off the wagon some but I still watch my portion sizes. My advice would be download the my fitness app or keep a log journal of the foods you eat everyday. I want to reach my goal of 155-160 pounds cause I'm 31 and 5'6. Best luck to you all and don't give up."

"I'd been on a weighy loss program for 5 months and although I had lost over twenty pounds (started at 182lbs.), I hit a plateau and couldn't lose the last five pounds. I'm a 42 yr. old woman, 5'6 and weigh 159, but need to be 155. Today is my second day taking the Phentermine 30mg. I was initially nervous and concerned that it would cause my heart to act up as I have low heart rhythm and am very sensitive to stimulants, but was pleasantly surprised to see my heart was fine. I'd done research and watched videos with Physicians prior to taking it and took the advice they'd given about taking the pill within the same hour of eating to curb rapid heart rate, so that is what I did. It felt funny at first with tingling in my legs and light headedness, but that quickly passed. I felt calm, happy and very relaxed all day. I didn't crave food and didn't feel deprived. I didn't notice a headache or dry mouth, but I did drink lots of water. I did have difficulty sleeping that night."

"I was prescribed this medicine for being over weight. I’m 18, 5”5 and my starting weight was 180/185, depending on how much I ate that day. I had previously taken antidepressants which increased my appetite and made me gain over 40 pounds, so my doctor thought I could try this medicine. Just in the first few months I was shedding weight like crazy. I was also drinking water only, no carbs, and going to the gym at least 3 times a week and doing cardio. My weight got all the way down to 136lb. I am now at 142, and it fluctuates depending on my food intake and bowel movements. I did have some side effects with this medicine. Sometimes I would have heart palpitations, but it was only a few times. I also experienced dry mouth, and insomnia. But the worst side effect I had was constipation. I wouldn’t have a bowel movement for 2 whole weeks."

"Started phentermine 37.5 mg in September 2018 I'm 22 5'7 starting weight 239lb and current weight 205lb I've been phentermine approximately 3 and a half months and lost 34 lbs! I count my calories, start eating a lot better, and work out when I can (I know I should more). I'm happy about my weight loss but determined to lose at least 60 more. The only side effects I've suffered from is dry mouth but I learned to control that with a lot of water of course and gum. I've also suffered with constipation but occasionally use ex lax that helped a lot (tried a natural alternative but just made me extremely bloated and more constipated wal-mucil generic metamucil). Great medication so far as u learn to work out the kinks. It's great for those of you who have found it impossible to lose weight. My insurance doesn't cover it so it's retail price is $39 but I had a coupon so I only pay $21. Must be serious about weight loss it's not a magic pill."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "Hi I’m a female 5”1’ weighing in at 186lbs, but you wouldn’t guess that by looking at me because I’m all boobs lol. I was down to 165lb when my ex and I broke up and when we got back together we both started stuffing our faces and in the 6 months it took me to get 20lbs off, it took me 6 months to put it back on. I am starting to loos weight again and I am on day 8 weighing in at 181 lbs. I am on a strict 1,200 calorie diet and exercising on my elliptical. I am getting married and going on my honeymoon cruise in May (6 months) so my goal is to be 140lbs by that time!"

"I started Phentermine 5 weeks ago. I am 41 years old, male, 5,6 , was 241lb pounds and now down to 214lb. I was a poor eater, suffering from high blood pressure and cholesterol. I tried everything to lose weight. Hitting the gym did not work , I barely lost any weight . I looked in the mirror and said enough is enough. I started eating really well and taking Phentermine with light workouts . I have lost significant weight and people are starting to notice . Just be wary that going to the gym "may" put a strain on your body while on Phentermine. I was getting dizzy just on the bike for 30 minutes . Also, do research it's potential health issues and or benefits. Remember once your off Phentermine your hunger comes back and you may want to eat more. There is a chance you could gain it all back if your not careful (That's my fear). My plan is to have some Phentermine handy and use it sporadically , once I see a 5 pound weight gain"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "It hasn’t been a month yet, I started adipex one tablet daily, never believed there is such pill to help me lose weight because I was tired of everything I tried, nothing worked out, until I started this miracle pill, as I said within 3 weeks I went down from 190 lbs to 169 lbs unbelievable!!! I'm so happy with my result, my goal is to go down to 155 lb or around... I’m 5’6”"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I started Adipex on 11/8/2018, I am 5'5 , I weighed in at 243lb at the time. It is now my 5th day and I have already lost 9lbs. I am only taking half of the pill because the Dr. thought I should gradually increase after seeing what side effects I would have. At this time but have following a 1200 calorie intake. Side effects have been dry mouth and blurry vision and high heart rate but it is tampering down now that my body is adjusting. I love the pill but the only downside is the blurry vision. I will continue to take to see if this stops if not I will just follow good eating habits and hit the gym"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "Starting Weight: 276lb 40 yrs female 5 ft 5 and after 2 whole weeks: 6 pounds loss ... that's it. I'm disappointed plus the dry mouth is terrible. I don't really have much energy but I'll stick to the drug for the 3-month time frame. Will update you after a month"

"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."

"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!"
