    I started taking Phentermine 37.5 8/24/2017, as of today 9/20/2017 I have lost 14 pounds! The first week I had tons of energy, but now it only last about half a day unless I'm out about and not sitting at my work desk all day. Plan on starting exercise this second month and hope my weight loss increases!

    I started taking this diet pill on June 14th and have lost 22 pounds so far. It does help with appetite control and gives you energy but you must still workout for the best results. I can tell a difference from when I was working out 4-5 days a week vs 2 days a week. I think the biggest thing I enjoy most about this pill is that it takes away that 2 pm sweet/salty urge i would get daily while a ... Show Full Comment

(Could be increase in workload too though) Also I don't get hungry at all on this so i have to ... Show Full Comment

    This medication is a true 'miracle drug'. It helped me lose 103 lbs. It gives you energy and the most POSITIVE feeling about life, in general. This should be prescribed for depressed people, because it just gives you a happy feeling and makes you feel that ANYTHING is possible. I cannot say enough good things about Phentermine! I never thought about cheating or bingeing when I was on it an ... Show Full Comment
