I started adipex 5 months ago. I am 5'7 and did weigh 203. I am now 167. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol but have lowered since the weight loss. I have only taken 1/2 of the 37.5 mg of the pill. Dr said to increase to a whole pill but I never did. What I want to say is, it worked when I changed my diet. I am still hungry but eat almonds or apples instead of crap. I also switched to sprouted breads and almond milk. I now use all natural shampoos and deodorant. I think using as less products and foods with chemicals helped tremendously. I do exercise every day.
Adipex makes you fertile?
Adipex do make you fertile. I have two boys and my youngest is 12 years old. I took adioes for 2 months bc I wanted to lose weight. I lost 40 pounds and stopped bc it made my stomach burn. I stopped in April and got pregnant in August. I thought I was sterile bc I haven't conceived in 12 years and me and my fiance were having sex like rabbits. Someone need a to test adipex bc it make you fertile. This pregnancy was very unexpected but a blessing at the same time. Have a blessed day
AskDocWeb: According to the Physician's Desk Reference, Phentermine has no effect on fertility. However, fertility can be negatively affected by obesity. In women, early onset of obesity favours the development of menses irregularities, chronic oligo-anovulation and infertility in the adult age. Obesity in women can also increase risk of miscarriages and impair the outcomes of assisted reproductive technologies and pregnancy, when the body mass index exceeds 30 kg/m.
I took this medication for just a few days. Side effects for me were stomach cramps, rapid heart beat, leg cramps, muscle weakness, dizziness, temporary high blood pressure, feeling faint, nausea. Not worth it. I flushed them down the toilet. I only have 15 lbs more to lose and killing myself with these pills is not how I intend to lose weight. Rotting the weight off in my grave was approaching me very fast. It was awful.
Risk factors for the brain
I had taken Phentermine for about 2 years until I had Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome which has caused some brain damage and made me very high risk for stroke due to the narrowing of the arteries. I have always heard of the risk factors for heart but not for brain. Why?
AskDocWeb: The answer is in the numbers of reports. There are too few reports of brain damage to make the list of possible side effects. However, some do exist: "Two case reports describe patients using phentermine (one in combination with phendimetrazine) who later developed ischemic cerebrovascular disease. One suffered a cerebral infarct with angiographic evidence of vasculopathy involving multiple vascular beds. The other patient developed headache and a hemisensory disturbance of seven days duration." (Source)
My cycle was delayed
I've been taking the adipex since August 2015 and I lost a total of 18lbs I recently stopped this week because my cycle was delayed. Could the weight loss have an impact on that?
AskDocWeb: Yes, cycle and period problems have been reported by others. See page 46.
Hi!!! I'm Jessica! I just turned 20 in October. When I was in middle school I played sports all the time but, I dropped out of sports at 16 to get a job. I was always real thin in middle school and didn't really have to watch what I ate. I ended up backing on the pounds and before I knew it I went from graduating middle school at only 120lbs to graduating high school at 215lbs. I was disgusted with myself.
I move to Louisiana after I graduated and in about six months I list down to 165. Wasn't my "ideal weight" but it was better then 215. When I moved back home I met a guy in Facebook. We ended up dating and moving in together and I started to gain the weight again. I went from 165 to 197 in about a year. Now I was 197, unhealthy, unhappy and to top it all off I'm getting married to this guy now in four months.
My wedding dress is gorgeous but, me in it, ya not so much. So I had been hearing about adipex from my aunt who took it and lost almost 100lbs in a little over a year so I decided to get on it. It cost me $70 for my Dr. Visit and my four injections and only $15 for the medicine. I begin working out and eating right and I've been dieting for two weeks but I've only been on adipex for a little over 1 week and I've already lost 14lbs! It was that quick and easy! Though I am having a little trouble with my period. I was two days late before I got on adipex, which for me is normal, but now I never did start it. I took a pregnancy test and it said negative so I'm going to ask my doctor about it after the holidays.
Also, a little heads up, I gave up all soda, fast food, and sweets and today at my office party I had a couple of chicken nuggets and as soon as the grease hit my belly it came right back up. It's best if you stay away from anything that you know you are not suppose to have. Your mind may be against you eating those types of flood lol.
