I started taking this about 2 weeks ago. I have 90 lbs. to loose and being 35, female and have had a kid, nothing else has worked. The first week I lost 4 lbs.

I lost 12 lbs my first month on my own without the meds so ... Show Full Comment

I have been the "chubby" kid my entire life. As a teenager I was put a medication that made me gain 140 lbs. before my parents demanded the doctors take me off of it. 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

I went to my doctor and asked for something to help me with weight lose. I mentioned that even after eating a good side meal, I'd be hungry again within an hour. Also mentioned that I've tried so many diets and exercises that it just doesn't keep me from being hungry. So he prescribed me phentermine orally. I have been on it for about a month, and I have lost 20 lbs. and I've incor ... Show Full Comment

First, I thought this drug was for Obese. Anyone under 160 is not obese if they are a normal height. I started on the low dose in Oct and my appetite decreased, one thing I was looking for.

I've had very little exercise over the winter months so again I am very happy with my progr ... Show Full Comment
