A few of us (off hand that I know of) are taking phentermine to jump start our weight loss goals.
So this thread is for you girls. Pretty informal. Post questions, comments, recipes, vents, exercise tips, whatever you'd like!
Leave your name and I will add you to the OP. :)
I am Kelli. My target weight loss is 50 lbs (but I'm more than happy with 35lbs). I don't intend to lose all the weight with phentermine. I'm just wanting the boost. I started this week.
Links: (more to come):
Prescription diet pills are intended for use by people whose BMI exceeds 30 and are therefore classed as obese. People that have a BMI of 27 or greater and that also suffer from associated risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes or hyperlipidemia are also often deemed suitable candidates for phentermine.
It is true that prescription diet pills, like all other medications can cause side effects, however when someone is prescribed a diet pill such as phentermine it is because your doctor feels that the benefits of losing weight to reach a healthy BMI outweigh the possible side effects.
The side effects of phentermine diet pills will vary from person to person, some people experience little to no side effects whilst using phentermine.More detailed information on possible side effects can be found here.
Those who do initially experience side effects find that they lessen after the first few days of taking the phentermine diet pills as their body becomes accustomed to them. If whilst taking phentermine diet pills you experience chest pains, difficulty in breathing, fainting, swelling of the feet or lower legs or feel concerned about a possible side effect consult your doctor immediately.
Phentermine diet pills have been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for short term use of no longer than three months. This means that the FDA have found phentermine to be a safe and effective obesity management aid. Phentermine should be taken exactly as your doctor prescribed them to you.
I'm Mandi and I'm in my second month of Adipex. My goal weight loss is 50 lbs. Thus far I've lost almost 20. I haven't decided if I'm going to go with the third month yet or not, it just depends on how the next two weeks go :)
My name is Heather. My goal weight loss is 50lbs. I've been on Phentermine for about a month now. I've lost a total of 20lbs and 14inches off my waist line. I'm starting to notice a difference and I'm feeling better about myself now. I'm not eating a whole lot, I'm exercising every day, and just trying to stay busy. With having 3 kids close in age It's not hard to do.
Im not on it but can I ask a question about it??
Is it prescribed by your Dr? Or over the counter??
Yay! Good to see your are both having success.
Do the side effects (feeling kinda jittery) ever go away?
I like the side effects.:oops: haha.
Quoting amy ♥:

Jade... did you go through Tricare? How did you do it? Referral? Or did your PCM prescribe it?
I am enlisting reserves, and have 35 pounds to go before they will even talk to me. =/ And, thats MAX weight with NO leeway. (Im 5'10".. and I "should" be 174, max. Im 210 now)
