I just started taking it, today 7am was my first pill.. I am soooo not hungry, and Im scared to eat, cause I feel soo full. I was also put on synthroid for a thryoid disorder.
So my question is.. have any of you taken it? How did it make you feel? Im not hungry, should I eat (my dr reccomends 900-1000 cals a day, which I could hopefully eat by dinner)

-and I dont want opinions on exercise, and dieting.. I did that for 2 years! Phentermine was our last step, and with getting my thyroid under control, I should be fine.

  • From your picture you don't even look heavy. I REALLY need to lose some weight, diet and exercise isn't working for me! What kind of doctor prescribed it to you? What was your plee for it?

  • for mommy2karsen...
    Im not, really... its all kinda just in the stomach, and thighs... but believe me.. I weigh over 200, I didn't plea for it... Im 'obese' by every chart you look at for my age, and height.. if your regular doctor wont give it to you.. Im sure theres a doctor in your town that will.. a lot of reg doctors in my town wont, but there are 3 that will, no questions.. someone once told me to check in with a bariatric(sp?) doctor... good luck.

  • I took them about a year ago. Lost 30 pounds but as soon as I stopped taking them I gained it all back and then some. THEN I had gastric bypass! They work ..but everyone else who I've seen post about them have said they gained the weight back too. So good luck!
