  • I have not used it, but worked in a facility where Phen Fen was used quite a bit when it was available. Adipex is the same chemical makeup as Phentermine at a different dose and name.
    All the patients lost weight, quickly and easily. Less than 3% kept the weight off for one year. Less than 1% kept it off for over 5 years. But the biggest problem I saw with the use was that women with curvy feminine features lost weight and gained it all back PLUS MORE in the midsection resembling large balls with limbs. While they were not hypetensive or diabetic to begin with, they did become that way afterwards because of the excess weight in the midsection.
    YOU WILL GAIN IT ALL BACK, PLUS MORE and your body will never look the same again.

  • Yeah any "diet pill" should be avoided. What happens with diet pills, their immediate effects are all that's tested, the FDA approves it, only to find after a few years of use it causes heart attack, stroke or liver/kidney failure. You do not need to jeopardize your overall health over losing weight. Avoid diet pills like they are the plague. Anyone motivated enough who does their research and eats the proper healthy calories to lose weight for their age and height and burns enough calories in a day WILL lose weight and be successful without a pill!

    Good Luck

  • I wouldnt use a pill when you can do things like eat healthier and exercise. Weight watchers is a much healthier life style change

  • From my own experience, I've learned that diet pills are crap. They don't work and you can get a similar feeling and effect from taking a caffeine pill.
