 4  Weight loss for daughters wedding No side effects but also no energy Trying to loose 30-40 lbs before daughters wedding In Oct. Really praying these things work. Won't get on the scale unless my cloths seem to get more loose. I've alway enjoyed a very healthy/conscious meal and I usually eat 1-2 meals a day. Problem is, I've had surgeries, neck and spine surgeries (5) and I couldn't do an exercise if you held a gun to my head. Any other suggestions on how I can ensure weight loss even though I can hardly move sometimes. Like I said, I've only been on them for a week, I'm just worried they won't work for me and my daughters wedding is the most important thing in the world to me. F 49 1 weeks

 2  Weight Loss I've taken these pills on and off for 15 years. I began taking them at my jerk doctor's advice when I was 21 years old. A short time later I ended up with bulimia. This drug taught me to like hunger pangs. This drug caused mood swings that worsen as I stopped then began taking it, pain and swelling down my left arm, confusion, mild hallucinations (corner of your eye phenomenon), depression, anxiety, and more recently heart palpitations that can last for months. I am not a fan of doctors who so eagerly give these drugs to patients. The weight loss is temporary. The eating disorders are longer lasting and potentially more dangerous to your health. Beware of diet pills. While tenuate dospan has been around for a long time, the last thing you want to do is become part of a trial for some that have resulted in death (Phen fen, Meridia).

 4  weight loss Increased energy & focus (but no exhileration), decreased appetite. First few days was about psychological hunger & habits when not actually hungry. Last few days have been about no hunger feelings. Take early as possible (6-7am) & a very light breakfast....an apple at lunch & a child portion of food in evening (which is more than enough) with masses of water in between has resulted in 5lb weight loss in 1wk. I have not exercised so I should imagine this will be more if I do. Craved chocolate in the evenings but overcame this. Easter lunch was the biggest hurdle where I had traditional veggies piled high. I have had diarrhoea (manageable) throughout week & today the veggie binge has given me tummy ache that is related to the runs. I was 16s 7lb on 25/03/2013 & on 31/3/13 I weighed 16s 2lb. In an estimated projection,it will take 12weeks to lose 4 stone & get down to my former weight of 12s 6lbs.Although this isnt as superskinny,it is a weight where I look & feel amazing. Im gonna do it. Good luck guys x F 32 1 weeks

 5  Lose weight Some slight menstrual disruption I was always skinny growing up, and then all of a sudden, I was up to 179 pounds, which is huge for me. Along with anti-depression medication and hormone balancing, Tenuate, has been a DREAM come TRUE! My doctor tells me I'm the poster child for Tenuate. I lost a total of 45 pounds! I have been off of it for a week or so, and I haven't gained the weight back. I'm still trying to eat 1200 calories a day, because I do NOT want to gain it back. Try it, and you'll LOVE it!

 5  To lose a third of my body weight Dry mouth, more energy, relaxed mood, prone to day dream or become fixated on a thought from time to time. I forgot to take the tablet one morning and got a headache. I took it at midday and the headache disappeared within 30 minutes. I have read that it is addictive. I have been taking this drug for 11 days now. I lost 14 pounds in the first week without doing any exercise. This encouraged me to go to the gym and start walking. I can't wait to weigh myself again. Work colleagues asked me if I had lost weight after three days! I eat less and I am able to think about what I want to eat and when. My sweet tooth has gone and I haven't drank Coke for 11 days, which is a record for me. I tried some chocolate yesterday and it tasted bitter. I worry that when I cease taking the drug the pounds will pile back on. I need to learn how to eat more healthier. I am considering seeing a life coach who will adopt NLP techniques so I can maximize my prospects of success. F 42 11 days

 4  to lose weight, was obiese Dry mouth, Insomnia, would wake very early and find it hard to drift back, more energy, Racing heart rate, but nothing that a good workout would bring on anyway, More confidence, more chatty than usual was worried my work colleges would notice Started off a right fatty, 17 stone 8 bs, went on the tablets in may last year, only my partner knew because i didnt want anyone to judge me, at first i lost about 4 lbs a week had more energy and was really focused, started walking n the treadmill 3 times a week for about 45 minutes each time, by October i was down to 13 stone and then i hit a plateau but each week i still lost about a lb, i never gained until Christmas, when i decided to ditch the pills and go alone, have actually gained back abut a stone due to really poor eating habiits, but i am now into my 2nd week on them again and ive already lost 5lbs of that... the tablets are great at first but then you do need to introduce moderate exercise and healthy eating, i always have 1 day off usually a Saturday where i will miss the tablet and eat my favorite food and have a glass or two of wine, on the whole i would say be prepared to put the effort in, and you will get the results you want, im aiming for 10 stone by summer....

 5  Weight loss Nothing bad enough that I notice. Works great. Was pre-diabetic and diabetes runs strong in my family. Have lost 22 pounds so far, but more importantly have learned how to eat correctly. Started out walking every morning, gradually increasing to jogging. Quit eating refined sugar and white flower. Started lifting weights again or probably would have lost more weight. Not as concerned now with losing alot of weight as long as I am fit and healthy. M 40 40 days

 3  Weight Loss 1st time: Weight loss! Very little appetite. 2nd time: Ran into a problem. The first time I took this drug, was great! I had energy, but no jitters or felt like my heart was gonna fly outta my chest. Almost no appetite, I had to make myself eat sometimes. and I lost weight. Quit taking them for financial & other reasons. I kept eating healthy and working out 95% of the time; Didn't gain any weight back! The 2nd time I took Tenuate starting in Feb. 2008, has been not so satisfying to my dismay. This time taking it was to help with the energy and to lose the remainder of my weight. I feel like I'm on an emotional rollercoaster! The slightest thing and I'll start crying. I have the worst headache, I thought was due to sinuses but even taking my allergy medicine didnt make a dent in the headache. I just feel sad a lot lately. My mother had to quit taking the tenuate for the same reason. So I tried not taking them for a few days, and after two days of no tenuate I felt better- Not nearly as emotional and especially over the littlest things. Then I decide I' F 24 2 days

 5  Weight loss dry mouth, depression for first day, weak at first I have found tenuate dospan to be a great help in a jumpstart to my weight loss. I gained 20 lbs in the past two years and I just could not cut the weight. Without working out and being on the pill for two weeks, I have lost 10 lbs. I do not get hungry until around 5 pm everyday and when I do eat I get full a lot quicker. This pill is great to start a diet and get used to eating less and then start working out after side effects fade and body gets used to the pill. F 21 14 days

 3  Weight loss left arm feels a little achy,have trouble with word retieval,A little depressed. I took this medicine back in the 70's. I was 40 pounds overwieght and a teenager. I lost 30 pounds on this medication and whenever I would try to go off, and the weight would return. I switched to Ionamin 2 years later and have been on it ever since. Yes, 37 years, except for the 3 times I was pregnant. I loved Ionamin AND THEY TOOK IT OFF THE MARKET.Now I'm on tenuate and it,s too strong. I have no energy, but it's better than phentermine. That stuff made me crazy.I'm trying to slowly wean myself off of them completely and it's very hard. I'm afraid of a heart attack or congestive heart failure from taking it for so long.My father died at 65 from stroke and diabetes. He was on diet pills from his teens also.I have diabetes and obesity on both sides of my family. The bad thing about going off slowly is the water wieght gain. 51 38 days

 5  weight loss dry mouth & extreme thirst at first I have been taking Tenuate for 4 weeks and have lost 28 lbs without much effort at all. Only 22lbs left to go before I reach my goal!!!I have just now this week started walking for exercise, so hopefully that will increase my results. It REALLY controls my appetite. I am taking 25mg 3x's per day. I have tried almost EVERY other OTC and RX med for weight loss out there and this is THE ONE by far. I used it a couple of years ago and it worked well then & kept the weight off until pregnancy. So, I had started it back after baby & I am pleased with my results!! F 31 4 weeks

 5  Obesity Dry mouth, but it encouraged me to drink more water. I lost a total of 107 pounds in 13 months, I loved the medicine, my husband also took and several of my friends, all with amazing results. We all ate much healthier and excercised, I had so much more energy without feeling jittery and NO NEED FOR SWEETS!!!! I never had a craving for sweets but kept the fridge full of fresh fruits. This medicine is great, HOWEVER, there is a very high risk of addiction and I have been off of the medication for 4 months now and have gained back 25 pounds, you have to keep the lifestyle change after the medication is stopped. I was also wondering if anybody else that has taken this medication has developed any stomach problems. F 31 13 days

 5  Weight Loss Little dry throat and mouth an hr after taking the pill. Somewhat of a "comedown" around 5 in the afternoon. This is working great for me. I am 5'7' 140 lbs, I have been taking it for a week and have lost 4 lbs already. I have anxiety problems but the medicine doesn't make it worse. I feel normal except more awake and much less hungry. I drink a lot of water with it and I think it helps. No racing heart or heavy breathing, but I would reccommend the 25mg 3 times a day rather than the 75mg in the morning. I get hungry around 5. If you have had any addiction to amphetemines in the past do not take this!!! I can see that is very addicting already. F 22 30 days

 4  to lose weight extreme increase in energy, slight discomfort, grinding my teeth. I have only been taking tenuate dospan for a week, and I have already lost 2 kilos, I dont feel like eating anymore, I use to have around 5 meals a day, I was very unhealthy, with Tenuate Dospan I only eat 1 small meal and a bowl of cereal a day, and I feel great, the only thing that scares me is my heart rate, and my nervousness, but they are only minor side effects.

 4  weight loss talking a bit more than usual, more motivated and energetic than usual, more peeing than usual. Maybe I was retaining water and did not know it. I dont fall asleep as easily. This stuff WORKS! I have only been taking it for 4 days * (started on 9/27/06) and I have lost 4 lbs . No craving, no hunger. My BIG concern though is about the possibility of heart valve damage . I took those pondimon, fen-phen weight loss pills back in the 90's and developed heart valve problems and pulmonary hypertension. Both conditions are in the mild stage. I have read that it is possible Tenuate can cause similar damage but not confirmed. I am not sure I want to risk having open heart surgery because of taking a diet pill. I may stop taking this .

 5  Weight Loss At first a little lightheaded and very thirsty, but this disappeared after about a couple of weeks. Occasional restlessness. After being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I felt depressed because of all the weight I had gained. I went to the doctor's office to see about participating in a weight loss program. The doctor prescribed tenuate as it would not interact with my synthroid medication. I went to the doctor's office once a month to have my blood pressure monitored and have had no adverse affects. I have now been on Tenuate for 5 months and have lost 30 pounds. I was placed on a 1200 calorie diet and am eating healthy again. Tenuate really suppresses my appetite and has curbed my cravings for sugar. I feel so much better about myself and know that I couldn't have done it without the help of tenuate. Let me tell you, if you have a thyroid problem, it is next to impossible to lose weight! I am now only twenty pounds away from my goal weight. I would recommend this medicine to anyone! F 44 5 months

 3  For being overweight Very lively & full of energy. The tablets also controlled my appetite - at first! With longer use, I found that the tablets weren't working as appetite suppressants, but I carried on taking them because of their incredible feel-good factor. I stopped taking them because I realised the potential addiction. My doctor prescribed 3 tablets a day, which was impossible for me to tolerate. Just half a tab was enough to stem my appetite and give me energy, but I think they should be re-introduced for weight loss, providing careful examinations are given to patients first. I took this medication during the 80's until they were withdrawn. F 51 6 days

The drug has stopped working for me now but still has not been back with my appetite although I still eat my favorite foods in kids servings. So far I haven't gotten back the 10 lbs i've lost due to walking and I am still losing the weight!
