I started using Adipex on 12/3/16 taking (1) 37.5 tablet (1) day. In January I have been taking 1/2 of the dose and have lost over 25 lbs and counting. I have the drive and desire to exercise, to eat properly and I actually save $$$ at the grocery store. I am very pleased with this product.

I have been taking 37.5mg for 3 months, starting weight 390 and now 3 mos later 350. I do not the pill on Sundays, during the week I have no hunger cravings at all, and when I do eat it is Considerately less than before I started taking it. I do have very bad dry mouth daily and drinking plenty of water helps a lot. I drink 1 cup of coffee a day and do not drink soda. I have a 6 mos goal of 60 lbs so I can have my back surgery and it looks like I am going to make it. I am very happy that my doctor suggested trying this, it's been changing my life daily for someone who can't exercise due to a spinal injury.

This pill decreases my appetite, but where I live it is way too hot this summer to walk or do alot of exercise. I have managed a loss of 10 lbs in 10 weeks. I drink 80 oz of water per day and maintain a strict diet. I guess my age plays into it alot. I'm also taking Lipo BC which is supposed to burn fat. This doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

I was 18, am 4'11, and started at 186 lbs when I tried it for 3 months. I dropped down to 156 lbs, and did not have much "side effects" other than thirst and heart rate feeling pretty fast at times. Sadly, as a busy college student, I gained 20 lbs in the matter of a year.. so am now starting Adipex again and trying to keep healthy habits. I've lost 3 pounds in the matter of one day, and am excited to see how the next three months go!

I started seeing a weight management physician seven years ago because I wanted to lose about 20 pounds that I had gained during past pregnancies. Several of my coworkers (overweight) were getting great results taking it. I was given a prescription, even though I was told my BMI was actually too low. I immediately understood why it was so great, you just don't feel like eating and can actually "forget" to eat. I lost several pounds the first couple weeks. I had the headaches, dry mouth and jitteriness at first, but that went away after about a week. It does give you a lot of energy and I can definitely tell the difference when I do not take it. My physician continues to prescribe this "off label", even though I have already reached my goal weight. I just have to go every three months to follow up, weigh in, and I'm given a prescription. I do try to take a break from it every so often. I worry that if I stop taking it for good though, that I will just gain the weight back, as others have said.

I start to use Adipex since my Daughter has 2 yrs, and because gain so much weight during my pregnancy. Actually my daughter has 21yrs, and I'm still using Phentermine (generic) every single day. Believe it or not. I dont need to lose weight, just keep using it to have energy.

Works great! I recommend it if you have a lot of weight to lose and have trouble getting motivated because it helps you net results fairly quickly and that generally helps you stick to the program. You absolutely need to incorporate diet and lifestyle changes or you'll just regain the weight. It isn't a miracle drug, but it is excellent for people like me that need to lose 50 lbs. The most common side effects for me are inability to fall asleep(especially if you take it after about noon), jittery feelings(not too bad though) and heart palpitations(rare and only when in combination with a considerable amount of exertion).
