I've been on phentermine for 7 months. My goal was set to lose 72 pounds. I'm 5 pounds from my goal! I was advised to exercise and eat a low carb diet. The combination of phentermine, running, and eating low carb (20 carbs/day) has been very effective! My only issue with this drug is the affect it's had on my moods.

Since then I have struggled to no avail to lose weight on my own, always teetering between 295 lbs. and 305 lbs. In the past decade or so I have also been diagnosed with osteo-arthritis and several other crippling chroni ... Show Full Comment
