 4  Lose baby weight after having twins Dry mouth (mainly in the back of my throat) I am a former drug addict (3 years sober) so I was very worried about taking this medication, but I have to say this medicine so far has been awesome. I've lost a pound a day so far, gives me energy, some days I'm super talkative some days I'm really quiet, it does mess with my head a little but only lasts a brief moment. F 26 5 days

 1  Weight loss Heart racing, trouble breathing, nausea, vomiting, irritability, mania, high energy I took it under a doctors supervision in college with no issue other than heart racing. I took it again when I had put on more weight and got a completely different affect. I felt like I was developing a heart condition and felt sicker than ever. I ended up in the ER twice and it took me 2 months to recover. I lost 20 pounds in 5 days from taking this. It was so effective but not when it became life threatening. If you took this drug previously and want to try it again do not, I repeat do not do it. F 28 4 days

 5  Weight loss Lost 60 lb on the medication, but was also extremely angry, irritated, irrational, and violent. Due to fears of becoming fat again, I continued the medication, though its effects lessened over time. I became addicted and was purchasing the medication on the streets along with taking my prescription. I experienced severe facial acne and was not able to stop picking them, no matter how hard I tried. F 34 3 years

 1  Weight loss I am a 25 year old female. I entered a weight loss clinic to help me on my journey for weight loss. I'm already on a journey but I wanted something more to help me. I have already lost weight, but I wanted that' extra push. I am currently 235. They prescribed this pill for appetite control. However, I received a bad side effect that is not worth to put my health on line. My whole left arm felt numb and heavy. Tingling as well. That is not a good sign. It scared me because I don't want this drug to affect my heart. Upon doing more research it has very negative effects on many people. Developing heart condition. Good thing is only four days. I'm stopping this medication completely it is not worth it. I'm going to continue ny weight loss journey in eating healthy and exercising. The side effects are not worth it. Horrible. F 25 4 days

 3  2 get back into shape after Lexapro I felt extreme highs followed by extreme lows, within just minutes of each other. I can't stand to feel that EVER again. I was 120. Then 175. I was ashamed. Not quite sure what does that. I wish it was a little bit of a smoother ride. I do have a prescription for Xanax which I figured would help smooth out the transition, however it may or may not have added to the problem. It was just a little too difficult to tell. Headache. I attribute this to forgetting to take my blood pressure pill two days in a row and missing my Clonidine. High stress day w my Mother. F 40 2 years

 4  Weight loss I noticed a decrease in appetite. Was able to eat smaller portions right away. It calms me, eases sporadic thoughts and restlessness, improves my concentration and gives me the desire and stamina needed to take care of things I normally procrastinate on like paying household bills, working on complex matters with our new company, understanding detailed subject matter, have patience in seeing tasks through to completion. I have been diagnosed with ADD before in my mid-thirties and took Adderall for about 17 years. When I turned 50 my doctor took me off of it so we could see if it was still needed. I made it ok without it. Felt my anger tendencies disappear as well as my anxiety. But I went back to being too overwhelmed to start basic tasks and stay with them until they were completed...like paying bills and budgeting, laundry or putting things away. To my amazement when I began Phentermine, I slowly felt myself finding the will to tackle these routine tasks and get them done and noticed I felt less anxious and more calm and focused. I was able to break large jobs into smaller ones and successfully complete all of them. So I would say it's a win-win for me! F 50 50 days

 5  weight loss Amazing!!! I lost 65 pounds...18 of them being the firat month on adipex. Dry mouth def., my heart would race and you just have to sit down and remember and make sure not to OVER-DO yourself. My appetite was extremely curved- My mom went and got on it and had no effect at all, she was disappointed but everyone's different. It is worth a try! It works for most that I have seen, but there are a few that see no results or side effects. F 25 4 months

 4  Weight loss Dry mouth, constipation. After the 3rd time I took it I did not get energy like I did the first time I was on it! and caused me to get cystic acne. My weight loss was great the first time I took it 174 down to 130lbs! I weaned of the meds( some withdraw ) over year and a half gained about 30lbs back! Started meds again and noticed my face began to break out and did not have energy liked I did in past! Although It still curved my appetite! Thinking watching what I eat on my own is going to be my future route! F 29 3 years

 5  Control Appetite/Lose weight Severe constipation, restlessness, and severe itching. At times I would not have the urge to go for days and have to use an enema to induce bowel movement. The itching is the worst. It happens on my thighs, belly, and under arms the most. I itch many bruises into my skin because it is so bad and I cant stop. I have taken this on and off for about 3 years. The side effects have changed over time. I do not have as much constipation, but the itching came about with my most recent restart of the meds.

 3  Weight Loss No Side Effects Well, my doc prescribed 37.5 1 x day last week to aid in weight loss. He said it would increase my metabolism (don't see where the label says that) and decrease appetite. I haven't noticed a single change and my weight has gone up 3lbs in this week like it's been doing for months. I have gone from 110 to 146 in just few months. I have been vegetarian for 20 years and even started Weight Watchers again back in October. It worked before to get 40lbs off fast and my weight is still going up this go round. It's highly unusual. Am I not responding to this medicine because I do not have enough weight to lose? I think it's only 30lbs to lose and maybe I wont respond. I have felt exactly the same, perhaps MORE hungry! Please someone email me if they have knowledge or advise! [email protected] F 31 8 days

 4  Weight loss I experienced severe mood swings and anxiety while on this medication. My heart felt as though it were racing, and I sometimes had trouble sleeping. The side effects, however, were worth it for me, because I ultimately lost 90 pounds on this medication. Side effects are extremely unpleasant. Anxiety, racing heart, insomnia, mood swings, euphoria, dry mouth, and a bad taste in mouth were the most common. Luckily this medicine isn't used for long-term and it is EXTREMELY effective in helping with weight loss. I lost about 20 pounds per month on average. F 20 4 months

 4  Weight Loss Was unable to sleep when first started taking it, possible stomach upset at times, temperature changes (go hot and then cold easier than usual). I started off taking the generic (phentermine) 37.5MG, and due to this not working as well as it should, my doctor increased to 37.5MG in the morning, and then 18.75mg at lunch (half a pill). It works very well for me. I have no appetite, lots of energy, and generally feel pretty good. I've lost over 50 pounds taking this medication. I have never taken the brand name, so I can't speculate as to the differences between the brand name and the generic. M 30 2.5 months

 5  Weight Loss Dry Month, Insomnia, Constipation - Increased symptoms of Existing Anemia Condition. I'm taking Adipex/Phentermine in combo with Medically guided Nutritional Counseling. I've lost 35 lbs. in nearly 7 months (203 down to 168. I have noticed its decrease in effectiveness after about 4 months. The key here is to adjust your diet and vitamin supplements. i.e. protein shakes, lemon water(natural diuretic) B-12 shots AND B Vitamin supplements. I am anemic and iron supplements were a must for me. Bulk fiber and careful diet are a must with the already added constipation side effect. Bottom Line - My obesity was far more damaging to my overall health and well-being than these short-term side effects. F 31 7 months

 5  Phentermine Dry Mouth, Feeling Hot, Increased Heart rate when I worked out, Increased Energy, Increase libido! I love it! I take it first thing in the morning so this way I could sleep at night. I have increased energy at work. I don't feel tired all day. To conquor dry mouth I drank lots of water and had gum handy. When I was feeling hot I used my AC or fan. The only thing was when I worked out my heart rate would jump from 127 to 180. I had to take it slow at the gym to get the full effect but I had so much energy and I sweated for the first time working out. Plus I loved the energy while having sex. When my husband took it was even better! F 33 2 months
