My doctor put me on this, and I just finished my second day. I can definitely feel it!

I am so afraid of gaining any weight back, but in two years, I have lost ten pounds, and they don't know why. I exercise and eat healthy, so maybe that combination will keep me at the lower weight? I'm hoping! Thyroid is fine, everything so far checks out...I just can't lose...I'm only trying to lose about 40lbs...

Okay this is silly. I'm on day 4 and have noticed ZERO difference. Still tired, still insanely hungry. How long does it take for this stuff to "work"? I'm on 15 mg.

My doctor put me on 37.5smg tablets, and I felt it instantly. Obviously thats 3xs what you're taking. I hope it works for you soon!

I've been on it for a few weeks. I'm doing a terrible job taking it, though. My first week I took it perfectly and I lost 7 pounds. But to be fair, I had fallen off the wagon for awhile before that..

I'm on 37.5 and I felt it like crazy the first day and then not so much after. Maybe 15s aren't enough for you to feel it, Kateastrophy?

I took this a few years back woulf like to have some more without the side effects . It made my heart race, dry mouth & constipated woke up @ 2am wanted to exercise (not me). I think the lasting side effects scared me off of it. I still think I'm a little high strung because of it. Maybe I'm just spastic on my own. Good Luck with it.

I'm taking Phen again, now. One pill a day. Haven't noticed any new weight loss this time around yet, but I'm anxious, agitated and irritable a lot, so the idea of eating anything grosses me out. I've noticed that going up to one pill a day, my temper is a little more tricky; it might just be life stuff going on, but I feel angry often and it's easy to lose my temper, so I have to keep myself aware of my mood. Normally, I never get angry, so this is weird for me. I'll update about my experiences with it if anything changes. It's interesting to hear how others fare with this stuff.

Ok..... My dr. Put me on this and i got ny 1st rx at walgreens. They use the kvk kind....and it was working i just thouggt it should work wayyyyyyy better. So i decided to go to freds and see if qualitest brand phen was any better. I might as well have taken an asprin. It does nothing to help hunger!!!

Has anyone else had this problem? Can i get freds to take these back???

I started taking mine on and off about 2 weeks ago, and I've lost 5 lbs. Monday, I'll start back at the gym, because my doctor says I have to lose 21 lbs by the end of January! It helps me mainly w/ energy and appetite control. I really need to get on the ball

I don't know if any one has had any luck with Phentermine but I haven't besides feeling like i have a cold. And can't sleep at night this really sucks. What's wrong with me. O well back to counting calories.

I started taking Phentermine (generic Adipex) on Saturday, 01/19, and have lost 2 pounds since starting it. On the first day I had a shaky thumb, lol, but since have had no side effects. I can't wait to be a healthier me. I am also eating healthy and taking in a lot of protein, found some awesome protein bars

Default ?? about urine function on med

So I have been on the med since Saturday, and lucky for me I already had excessive thirst issues, so there is no real change there; however, I find that I am drinking all of this water, but I don't seem to going tinkle more???? Is this my imagination or has someone else experienced this???
