    I didn't realize that the FDA put a 3 month limit on this medication! I only lost 2 lbs the 1st month and 3 the second month. I was going to stop taking it and go to something else then the 3rd month I lost 10 lbs! I was very excited until I found I couldn't take it anymore. My body has a high resistance to medication so my doctor thinks that is why it took so long to start losing the weig ... Show Full Comment

    This is my third time taking adipex over the last 10 years. The first time I lost about 50 pounds in 6 months and the second time I lost about 40 in 4 1/2 months. It definitely works!

    I have mixed feelings about this drug. I had energy but a bit to much energy, I wanted to go go go and not stop, I would start one household project, in the middle of it get side tracked with another, then again with another, I wanted to do EVERYTHING at once, not quite a bad thing but my mind would not slow down for HOURS and I would sweat profusely!!! I mean pour sweat within just 30 mins after ... Show Full Comment

    Has anyone seen the movie "Limitless" with Bradley Cooper? My first few weeks on the pill I began to believe "I understood everything now, my life came into focus." Lost 12lbs in 3 weeks.
