I'm 5'10/was 232 lbs, battled my weight most of my life. I'm the only one I know who gained 30lbs on Weight Watchers! Even the Adkins nurses were stumped as they tracked me walking 5/13 min miles 7 days, low fat/carb/cals, although they did consider potential underlying factors such as cortisol. Then I injured my hip & back came the 25 lbs I did lose. After years of injuries, femal ... Show Full Comment

I started using adipex in June of 2013 and I am a 45 yr old female. I weighed 188 lbs and am 5'6. I was at the Dr. for foot pain but also had been getting heartburn and some lower back pain and put it together that my steady weight gain since hitting 40 was probably the problem. The foot pain (possible stress fracture from nothing specific) was just what got me in the door. Anyway, after aski ... Show Full Comment

I am a RN, BSN and This is my second round of this medication. 3 months on 3 months off. I lost over 30 lbs the first time..but this time I am having trouble. This med does not work unless you can run and exercise. Starving yourself is not a diet. It is creating an eating problem. I feel like I need to purge after eating anything.. not good. not losing weight this time, feels like I am getting big ... Show Full Comment

The first time I took this, it helped me lose 30 lbs. I was 190 lbs. However,I hit a road block and could not lose anymore weight regardless of strict dieting and exercising 5 days a week. I had a lot of energy. IT IS AN AMPHETIMINE so I expected that. This time around, I have lost no weight, experienced extreme insomnia, have had dry mouth, and strange dreams. On the weekends, I only take one hal ... Show Full Comment

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.
