For those of you who have been on phentermine/Adipex.

How many months were you on them and how much weight did you lose? I'm just wanting to get an estimate on about how much weight I could potentially lose on a 2 month supply. My doctor is prescribing me 2 months. Thanks.

  • I was on Phentermine for about 6 months. I only lost 10 pounds. Not very good progress.

  • I was phentermine for about two days. My heart started racing, I had palpitations and felt dizzy.. Yeah.. I gave that up. My daughter's friend was on it for about a month, lost 10 lbs, but wound up in the hospital for the same reasons as me. Bad Stuff.

  • ive actually been on it multiple times and its actually the safest diet pill out there. Its FDA approved and you shouldnt have any problems with it if your following your doctors instructions. The first time I took it i lost 17 in 6 weeks. Im back on it again, just started last saturday , im already down 4 lbs but we will see this saturday when I weigh in .
