I have been on this for almost a month and have lost 10 pounds just from decrease in calories and walking 30 minutes daily. I only take 1/2 a pill each morning as I was concerned over side effects.

I have been taking the medication since August and I have dropped from 254 to 219. I have cut my calories to 1000-1200 a day with 45 minutes of walking/jogging. I do experience constipation and dry mouth terribly but I just continue to drink water and take stool softeners.

I have been taking this medication for 1 month, 12 lbs lost and I am very happy with the results so far. I don't have an exact exercise routine but i do go to the gym 4 days out of the week, each day for 1 hour. I work on my arms and go on the bike at the gym. The only side effects I have experienced are excessive sweating and dry mouth.

Comment:
I've been on Adipex for 2 months now and I've lost 20 lbs. At first I felt anxious but that feeling wore off about 2-3 weeks into taking it. I try to watch what I eat and exercise when I can. I haven't really had a set routine of exercising and I know that if I excercised more I would obviously lose more weight. Two main side effects for me are dry mouth and excessive sweating. Other t ... Show Full Comment
