Has anyone taken phentermine for weight loss?

Has anyone taken phentermine for weight loss? My Dr put me on it, and I’m so afraid to take it bc I don’t want to get addicted to it, and I don’t want it to make me feel high.

I take it and I’ve been on it for 2 months and haven’t lost a pound :weary: I was on it before kids and lost 4 lbs in a week tho before kids it made me feel weird now I don’t have any weird side effects

I took it for about 6 months and only lost about 5 lbs… it messed up my sleep/eat schedule bad though and over a year later I still have trouble sleeping … my dr did put me on ozempic (no im not diabetic nor pre diabetic) back around Christmas 2019 and so far I’ve lost 40lbs… its slow but its working :muscle: :relieved: I wasn’t addicted to the phentrimine but I didn’t like it

I was on it last year before I had a stroke. It definitely worked. And I was able to immediately stop it when I needed to

I’m currently on it. I have Bipolar Depression so some of the medication I’m on has caused me to gain weight. Which in turn, makes my depression escalate. It is an ugly vicious cycle. I have lost 60 pounds and I feel great. I have plateaued but I have gained a great deal of energy. I able to be a mom to my 17, 15, & 13 year old boys. Overall I feel great!!

My Dr put me on it but theyll only Rx it for 2 months then you either have to take a month off or switch to something else. Im on something else now. Didn’t like the extreme dry mouth phentermine gave me. I lost 30 lbs in 8 months between that and my new medication.

I was on it for a few months…lost 30 pounds …kinda made me a little jittery but not too bad…I’m using truvision products now and it works amazing.

Ok, so please don’t judge me. I took phentramine for years for weight loss. Honestly its an amazing weightloss tool. But I had a huge problem with taking too many. I loved how they made me feel and how much I got done. They made my depression pills not work as well

I took it but it did nothing for me and didn’t make me feel anyway, I stopped it with no problem because it was not helping at all

I was on them an lost 7 pounds a week didnt have any problems when i stopped

I took it and lost weight but I did not like it so I stopped taking it. It constipated me so I just stopped taking it…

I have permanent heart damage from it. I’d personally pass. It’s not worth it.

I cleaned like OCD status. I didn’t find it habit forming. It’s like having lots of caffeine and definitely eat something with it. Helps tremendously with the jittery feeling.

I lost about 20lbs the first month and about 5 the following month. I never experienced any issues with it other than it did give me energy. My bff took it and had it affect her sleep and she got jittery from them. We both had the dry mouth and I used the wintergreen breath savers to help fight that.

It’s essentially lab created speed, so it will give you a lot of energy and you will lose weight, but it has a lot of serious side effects you may also deal with. Talk to your pharmacist about the side effects so you know just what you may experience.

For short term, I would say give it a try. It is definitely not a long term. It has some serious side effects dealing with your heart.

I’ve taken it it will not make you feel high it will definitely make you feel like you have a lot of energy. If you feel like your heart is racing cut it down to half a pill and always take it early in the morning as soon as you get up or you will have trouble sleeping. But I don’t know anybody who’s become addicted to it

I use it. It always works for me. I lost 35 in 4 months and gives me lots of energy combined with a B-12 shot every week

Can cause rapid or irregular heartbeat, delirium, panic, psychosis, and heart failure.

I’d personally rather eat right and exercise.
