I have been on phentermine on and off for about 6mths.The first 2 wks I lost 5lbs but then my wt came to a stand still.I also take celexa-which has a side effet of wt gain.I'm thinking the two meds are just contradicting my wt loss/Does anyone else take a antideppressant and had success with their wt loss?

I just started the 37.5mg today. So far so good. I need to loose 50 lbs. I did not eat the first half of the day. I was not hungry at all. I figured I needed to put something in my stomach.

I only started this med about two weeks ago and NOTHING! Infact I gain 1/2 lbs. It has given me the energy to run almost everyday and I havent been very hungry. But as far as shedding the pounds, it hasn't worked. How long was it for everyone else?
