Wonderful! I've lost 12lbs in 2 weeks. 10mg tab. Full feeling most of the day. Dry mouth on occasion, but good to drink more water anyway. No other side effects. A bit high in cost, but I'm not eating as much- a good balance.

this med really works I lost 12lbs in my first week only not to mention that the med itself made me very full and also controlled my cravings

I have been taking this medication for 4 months and have lost 20 pounds. I wasn't extremly overweight to begin with, but very depressed with how much weight I let myself gain, and started the medication weighing 180lbs. This pill does help with appetite control and portion sizes but it is not a "magic bullet" you have to be mindful of what you eat, and exercise. The life style changes are just as important.

I started on Meridia in Oct (it's now end of Jan) I have lost at least 25 lbs. The only side effect I experienced was dry mouth, which was OK since I needed to drink more water. I also started walking and then added a gym workout. I started running/jogging the first of Jan. I have gone from a size 14 to a 6. I am totally delighted with the results and will run/walk in my first 5K in Feb (I'll be 60 in Jul). It helps you stay on a healthy eating plan but you do need to exercise. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is serious about losing weight.

I started a month ago and have lost 12 pounds. I work out 3-5 times a week at Curves Smart and have severely restricted my food intake and do not cheat. I feel great and full of energy. Doc kept me at 10 mg for the second month since I have had positive results. I am faithful to working out and have gone from 175 to 163 in a month. I will continue to take it as long as I can to reach my goal. It has been a life saver for me in controlling my appetite. I highly recommend. I have not always been this heavy in weight. Just four years ago I was a size 8. But stress over a divorce and career change caused me to loose track of taking care of myself. Now, I am ready to take my body back. Drug is rather expensive, but what I save in food costs makes up the difference. I can watch other people around me eat ice cream and snacks and I just don't want them anymore.
