I've lost 9 pounds in a lil less than a month and im super happy with that! Ive always gained weight over Thanskgiving, so I'm exctied that I finally lost weight this year!

But..... I. Cant. Sleep.... It's horrible. I take my Qsymia early in the morning like my doctor said, and I can fall asleep fine but then I start waking up again at like 1am. Every night. I like the weigth loss, but this insomnia is terrible,

Just finishing my first month of Qsymia and I'm excited to get my refill for month 2!! Ive been eating healthy, plus going to the gym most days - doing weights and the elliptical when i can. I started at 209 and I'm already down 11 pounds to 197! First time I've seen that scale below 200 in months :D

The only bad part is that my insurance doesn't cover it, so it's super expensive... but if it keeps working its worth it!!

So far 4 days in I have actually gained two pounds. I am unusually tired, have no motivation and still constantly hungry. The very first pill I felt a bit of energy that lasted 30 minutes or so. By lunchtime I was famished. Taking naps and waking up feeling I could eat a horse. This is clearly not working for me. Discouraged because all I read are positive reviews. Am I just an anomaly?

The bottom line is I have tried many diets and healthy eating plans along with a regimented workout plan and although they may work for a while I tend to always go back and eat the fattening greasy high caloric foods that I love like pizza and french fries
By taking one pill in the morning I am not hungry all day and have to actually force myself to eat some fruit or a power bar then dinner I will eat half the amount I normally eat and don’t crave the foods that I desire which is why I’m finally losing weight. I have been on the medication for two months now and my starting weight was 182 and today I’m 167 so have lost a total of 15 pounds so I am thrilled not to mention all of the energy I have to breeze through my work outs !bottom line is this is a miracle pill The only negative is That I do get insomnia on some nights but in retrospective it has been worth it ! Also I have not been off the medication yet to see if my cravings and hunger come back in full swing so I will be back to check in when that happens .good luck and God bless to all the people who understand what we all go through when we want to lose weight !

Phentermine gave me Colitis. Have to see a Gastroenterologist now every few months. Now I am on medication because of my Colitis. I wish I never meet that diet doctor. That Phentermine pill ruined my life. Yes I did lose weight on the phentermine pill but it wasn't worth it. Now I have to have a colonoscopy every three years. I have to know where the bathrooms are. I can't enjoy going out like I did before. Read less

I started taking Phentermine 9 days ago an have lost 13.5 lbs. On the plus side not hungry, more energy, and better mood. I haven't had a problem with sleep either. At this time no negatives. What I am worried about is once the weight is lost (to not be found again) I have to focus on keeping it off. Statistically many gain the weight back and sometimes even more. I am trying to prepare myself for after taking phentermine. I am gaining better eating habits and making better choices, and getting out for more walks. I need to remember these points when the weight comes off and I am taking no more medication. Prepare yourself for that time. Read less
