    started off at 276, 3 months now and I am at 240. has worked really well with excercise and food reduction. On the negative side, have headaches,anxiety and terrible moods. I am going to be off of phentermine in a month at my request so I can get on my own plan and get rid of the side effects.

From what I understand, your body gets used to the medication and it stops working as well, so I guess that is where I'm at.
