The medication did not help my loose any weight. I did have a suppresed appetite but did not loose any weight. I have been off the medication for 6 months and in that time frame I have also had two miscarriages after having three completly normal pregnancies. I DO NOT advise any woman to take this medication at all.

I'm 5'5 a female and weighted a little over 200 pounds the first of November 2013. I started adipex on November 4th and today I have lost 25 pounds in just a month! I have not had any side effects, it's amazing!! Gives me a lot of energy but I still sleep at night :)

I started taking it 3 1/2 weeks ago and so far I like the results I'm getting. I only have taken 1/2 pill a day so far and walking on a treadmill everyday along with watching my food intake. I had some headaches at the beginning but since then the only thing is dry mouth otherwise I'm pleased.
