I've lost 24 pounds in 3 1/2 weeks. It truly gives me more energy and enthusiasm, plus my back and legs feel much better, thus minimizing my Arthritis. I have 40 pounds more to lose, and would LOVE to be able to keep taking Fastin, but according to what I've read on this website, I'll likely have to stop taking it pretty soon. It works GREAT for me! (I started taking it on April 14th--it's now May 10th).

I gained 30 pounds after having a baby and taking the depo shot. I tried exercising and fad diets but nothing worked. I have been taking phentermine for 4 weeks now and lost 15 pounds. I must admit that the first three weeks; I was taking the med with breakfast instead of 1 hour before. Plus, I only have time to workout three times a week at the most, but I am very excited about the way I feel and the way I look. 15 more pounds to go!!!

After having my daughter I was overweight. I had never weighed as much as I did until after I had her. When I went to my doctor I had asked her about over the counter pills for weight loss. She said if I was worried about my weight she would prescribe me something. So she prescribed fastin. Said that I could take it for a total of 6 months and to make an appt. once a month so she could monitor how I was doing on it and to make sure my blood pressure was alright and that I could continue to take it. Which everyhthing was fine so I continued to take it for a total of 5 months. I lost a total of 50 pounds! I was so amazed with this product. It's the best around and it works. I had no problems with it. It curved my appetite and I had energy. This is truely a "miracle pill" for weight loss! I highly recommend it!

Today is December 21 and I have been on this drug since August 4th my today is day 139 and I have gone from 340lbs to 285lbs. You do have to watch what you eat and do some working out but most of the weight I have lost is because of not longing to eat all the time. In fact there are times I have to remind myself to eat. For someone who was addicted to food this has been the best thing I have ever put in my mouth.

Greatly increased energy and decreased cravings. I went from 238 to 202 in 3 months. I wish I could stay on it longer. After being off of it for 3 months I have gained 7 pounds. I will ask for a new prescription when I am aloud to take it again because it works very well. During the first few days I didn't have an appetite and started to get dizzy because I wasn't eating after that all went well.

As long as I remembered to take this medication on an empty stomach I had great results.The down side was after 3 to 4 months the effectiveness lowered. The time released capsules had the greatest effect.

After quitting smoking 1 1/2 years ago, I really put on some pounds, and couldn't get them off no matter what I tried. This medicine is everything that I could hope for as far as aiding me in losing the weight so far. I have been on it for 6 days and have lost 7.7 lbs. My energy level is wonderful, I actually WANT to exercise. My appetite is under control, I don't feel like I have to eat all the time. I still fight a little bit of the bad habit of snacking and eating things that aren't good for you, but seeing the results I am getting so fast make eating better and trying to get healthier a lot easier. My confidence level is growing with every pound I drop. I hope this continues to work this same way. If it doesn't I will come back on here and let you know.
