I had 2 kids back to back and never lost the baby weight, then I ballooned to 225lbs! I’m a small girl – 5’1, so this was horrible to be so big. I tried it all, no success. I had terrible cravings for sugar and lots of stress in my life due to personal issues. I couldn’t take it and went to my doctor crying desperate for something to help. After some tests she gave me phentermine 1 daily 37.5mg, I’ve lost 10lbs this month, I have never lost that much in 30 days no matter what I tried. I have no appetite with this, but cravings come back later so I am looking into supplements to help with this. Dry mouth is bad but it just helps me drink more water, so this is an easy fix. Sleep has been hard but seems to be getting better. Read less

Male, 49. Good office job but long hours with regular days are 15 hours, so very little time away from work to do anything like exercise or even walking. I went for a medical with a doctor my colleague recommended to me and he prescribed phentermine 30mg. I lost 14lbs the first month, now down 41lbs in 3 months. My appetite decreased dramatically, so I could eat smaller portions, I drank lots of water, and got the self-control to stop eating sugar, no fast food and lots of veggies. My doctor wants me to get my body fat down more but that means exercise and I don’t have time for it. Read less

Generic phentermine (pills) - kept off my loss for 4 years so far

I started taking this pill back in Jan 2012. I was 235lb and at only 5’4’, I was my heaviest yet. I lost 13lbs in the first week, and a total of 90lbs in 7 months. BUT…this will only work if you... Read more

I started taking this pill back in Jan 2012. I was 235lb and at only 5’4’, I was my heaviest yet. I lost 13lbs in the first week, and a total of 90lbs in 7 months. BUT…this will only work if you make life changes, big ones. It curbs appetite but you have to eat right, not just 1200 calories and not care what you eat, you need nutrients to do it right. The energy as great, such a buzz, I felt really alive, even at that high weight it all got easier and the weight came off. Stick with portion control, that’s how I kept it off for over 4 years. If not, all the weight will come back and more. Read less

I started on the 15mg but there was no effect so my doc put the dose up to 30mg of the generic capsules and they were good. The effects lasted most of the day, but I did sometimes get hungry at night. Took them for 3 months then had a month off and just coming to the end of another 3 months. Some side effects when I first went on the 30mg dose - insomnia for a couple weeks and headaches, some anxiety but that was a problem for me before. The break was hard so I am worried about maintaining the results but so far I lost just over 40lbs, but that includes putting some back on in the break. I'm happy but not sure if the effects will last so a little scared to stop. Read less

They work! They take away my appetite and don't make me jittery. I have lost 15 lbs so far, which is a lot for me since I have no thyroid function. I wasn't looking for them to work because I'd tried all kinds of otc diet pills before with no success, but am so happy I gave these a try. Read less

I'm a 50 year old woman, started at 202lbs, and hated myself, I used to be so slim before but due to meds have piled the weight on. I just needed to get started and this helped a lot - I'm going back to the gym, finally seeing the difference, less cravings, completely off soda and wine, currently at 185 after a month, very happy so far. I had dry mouth and a rash at the start but overall nothing I couldn’t handle. Read less

It took away my hunger and cravings during the first couple days, but it took awhile to get used to it. The first day I was groggy and dizzy, but got used to it. These are the side effects I got: hair loss, dry mouth, dry sore eyes, constipation, jitters, insomnia easily irritated, mood swings. But - lost 40 lbs, big energy boost, and it actually took away the headaches I used to get. After 3 months it’s not working with cravings and hunger anymore, but still tons of energy and no headaches. My doctor kept me on it but now high BP, so I decided to cut down. Now low energy and getting headaches again. Weight loss has plateaued these last weeks. Read less
