I started this medication April 1st 2014. I have experience dry mouth and real bad sweating. I take this with topamax. This is a great medication. I weighted 542 lbs and I am down to 330 lbs. I am 35 lbs from my ideal weight. But I am 6 ft 6. Never give up on weight loss. Before this I did. I have not ate beef, sweets, soda, and cut back on my portion. I do exercise 3 times a week.

Comment:
5"5 black female in the late 20's age group with no underlying health conditions. Starting weight of 220lbs and lost 37lbs in 5 months of use. I will continue the use of this medication because it works for me and keeps me from being obese like I was. I am working to get to a normal range BMI. Slightly(not a lot) faster heart beat and dry mouth are my side effects I experience.

I spent most of my life between 175-180 lbs. Over the course of 4 years I gained 30 lbs, and I exercised regularly. I only took adipex for 2 months and along with regular exercise I was quickly down to 180-185 lbs.

I started taking Adipex on 10/3/2014. My starting weight was 186 lbs. Today is December 1, 2014 and I weigh 172 lbs. I haven't exercised except for 2 times due to my busy work week. I have 50 lbs to lose. Prior to taking Adipex I exercised 6 days a week doing Zumba, UJam, BodyPump and BodyCombat and I only lost 3 pounds. I was so discouraged. I went off of the meds for 1 week because my weight ... Show Full Comment
