I have tried everything to lose weight. Spent a couple thousand on exercise equipment, watch what I eat but still couldn't lose weight. I was prescribed these pills plus thyroid pill to boost my metabolism in June 2014. I weighed in today and officially down 52 pounds. I have more energy to exercise.

As part of a weight loss plan along with B-12 shots and watching what I eat. I've always been active but after menopause put on pounds. This has been great - lost most of the weight, have energy, and mood is better. Does sometimes wake me up at night - I take slow release capsule. Other than that, no problems. I see my Doc every week for the shots, so monitored well.

Mentally and physically. Looks like I will be on them for the rest of my life and someone said ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking this drug for a little over 6 weeks and have lost 16 pounds! I absolutely love this as the phentermine wasn't working for me anymore and was at the end of my rope. I was dieting to the point of starving myself and still not losing weight but this pill has been a miracle for me. My doctor and I are very happy with the results I'm having. I still have about 50 more pounds ... Show Full Comment
