Ive been taking phen 37.5 w a b-12 pill daily for 8 wks. I'm 5"5 starting weight 138lbs, current weight 130, goal 120.  Why is it taking me so long to lose this weight. Other people lose 8 lbs in a week :(  I'm stuck at 130! I barely eat and I'm pretty active... Any insight would be much appreciated.  I don't want to continue to take it if it's done all it can for me but I Have 10 more lbs to goooo HELP!

The Gastric Bypass Surgery  is horrendously expensive, which lead me to take a look elsewhere for something similar. I came across a solution which costs less and provide identical results as compared to the surgery, without many of the life-threatening complications. Roca Labs is only $640 (with optional payment plans) which is actually BIG discount compared to $15,000 to get a surgery which can possibly kill me. I think I am going to give it a try.

you don't count calories.  You eat high protein and stay away from carbs.  There are no calorie counting.  check out Doctors Diet Program and see if you can find lists but I know you should not be eating salt, bread, rice, pasta, or processed cheese but you can have real cheese, ham, pork or turkey bacon, ground beef, fish.  Other no no's sugar, milk, and believe it or not fruits.  Fruits are loaded with sugars.  No fried foods regardless of calories.  Grill Grill Grill.  I hope this is helpful.

Hi, I know you posted this last year, but I'm just signing on.  I had my first Lipo shot yesterday (04/27/2013). I'm 5'3 @ 160 lbs. OUCH.  That was enough to make me want the shot.  I'm not a big eater and usually have no appetite so I did not want or need the pills.  I'm anxious to know how and what you're doing now?  Hoping to hear from you soon.

I don't know what's up with these posts saying "phentramine (phentermine) (phentermine)..."  These two things are NOT the same. Phentramine (phentermine) is an herbal weight loss supplement that is available without a prescription on the internet and other places. Phentermine is an appetite suppressant which is available only with a prescription. People who write "Phentramine (phentermine) (phentermine)" are shills trying to mislead y'all. If you want Phentermine, you need a prescription from a doc. Phentramine (phentermine) and Phentermine are not the same thing.

Well I have taken phen in the past and it helped. I lost 27 lbs in 3 months and maintained it by healthy eating and exercise. Over the years i gave up working out and ate horribly so i creeped all the way up to 196 lbs. I am 5'1 and busty but that was still way way to big for me! I was OBESE! Anyways, I switched jobs and started working out and lifting weights (ActivTrax work out program is awesome!) and eating better (No eating out, less alcohol, more fruits and veggies).

I am now down to 173 lbs but have stalled here. I made an appointment for next week for phen and the b12 shot which I know work. So I am hoping to lose some more over the next few months! My ultimate goal is 125 and to be fit, not skinny.

Will see how it goes!

SW - 196
CW - 173
GW - 125

23 lbs down, 48 to go!

Wow, I am sorry you had to deal with that but how is that caused by phentermine? Did you keep the weight off you lost?

In my opinion phentermine should only be used as a supplement and not a replacement for healthy diet.

If you take phen and DO NOT EAT of course when you stop taking it and start eating bad again you will gain it all back..

BTW hope you are feeling better!

Turkey has melatonin in which makes you sleepy . Try a different meat like chicken or fish...fish is the best choice cause there is so many different types you can choose from . I use to weigh 272 lbs and I am now at 187 . I started phentermine , changed my diet completely and started a workout schedule . Its hard at first but then it becomes second nature and the best part out of it all....My kids have ( on their own ) started doing all this with me so now all of us are healthier and spend so much more time together ...all smiling .( no they dont take the phentermine lol )

Hello,
I take Zoloft 100mg w/ Phentermine and haven't had any problems. This is my 2nd time taking it, I took it a year ago and had good results.

I don't take the Zoloft & Phentermine at the same time though. If you're starting out, take have a tablet of the Phentermine and then take you Zoloft a little later.  Work your way up to a full Phentermine tablet to see if you have any reactions.

I hope to lose 80lbs with the help of the Phentermine this time around.

You need to eat! When you stop eating your telling your body that you're starving so the body then goes into storing fat that you would normally lose! Eat a big breakfast and smaller meals during the day and snacks. Stay active! The key is staying active! Also water will show up, but when your active it comes off!

I also take Zoloft but mine is 50 mg and I also have been taking Phentermine and getting the vitamin B-12 shots and have had NO side affects. I have lost 8 pounds the first week and 5 the second week. My PCP monitors my heart weekly and everything is fine, I have energy and the ambition to get up and exercise, Good luck with your weight loss and maybe when you are at a comfortable and healthy weight and have gained back your confidence you to can be taken off of your Zoloft.

Hi,

Do not stay constipated... if you do you won't lose a thing.  Another thing before starting a weight loss program, it is always wise to do  a colon clean out.

Has anybody here tried Liproxenol? I mentioned this because it has been very effective in helping me reach my target weight. And I didn't feel any side effect. It was fast and effective, so I though I'd just mention it here.

hello all,
  My daughter and I are looking into medical weight loss. Both of us have anxiety disorder and bad backs (I have degenerated disks and she has curvature of the upper spine) so I am concerned how the medications will make us feel. Both of us are on medications as well. I am currently taking pain medication along with other meds to control the pain and she is on an antidepressant. Basically, I want to know what kind of ill side effects you have experienced using the shots, pills, whatever you have done. What interactions with medications have you seen? I thank you all for your help and guidance.

if your taking it that early then make sure you take the other half before 2pm so your sleep isn't effected . Now you might not get to sleep til 10 - 11 pm .
If you can try to take your half of a pill for the whole day @ 10am -11am then see how that does you if you can hold off til that time of the morning . Just work with it and see what is best for you .

Slinkmeister, I was totally with you on this. How could you loose weight so fast? I didn't start to believe it until one of my customers dropped a bunch of weight. She told me she used a medical weight loss program called Go Figure. They prescribed her Phentermine and a Lipo B12 shot but the deal was that she had to go in every week to get refilled because they don't give you pills and send you away, they teach you how to eat properly and coach you weekly on your follow ups. She lost over 40 pounds in 4 months. Im a dude so I thought sounds good for her but probably not me.

My neighbor Martin, also a big guy like me started loosing weight. I began asking him about it and he just said that he quit drinking and started taking supplements. He travels a lot so almost 2 months went by before I saw him again and he had lost a bunch more weight. He had me get his mail for him while he was gone and I noticed one was from Go Figure. I thought, no way Martin in on Go Figure, but then I started thinking that if he were like a typical dude who was proud and didn't want people to know he needed help then he wouldn't admit to using a program either.

I went to Go Figures website and there on the cover was a testimonial of a guy named Mark. They purposely did not show his face clearly in the pictures but in the before picture he was wearing a short sleeve shirt and there was my neighbors tattoo. Mark had lost 47 pounds in 19 weeks. In the testimonials I also saw the local news anchors before and after pics, a lady from my church had lost 36 pounds in 15 weeks. I was convinced.

I signed up for the program and start next week. Its $360 for the initial visit, which includes blood work, ekg, food and diet counseling, supplements,  BMI and blood pressure check, a week prescription on phentermine or Phendimetrazine, and if you want the B12 + MIC shot its an extra $20

Currently I'm 40yo, weigh 241 pounds and I am 5'10" with a large frame.

Do you have any weight loss clinics in your area? I live in Illinois but right on the Mississippi River so I am going to a place in Iowa called Infinity Medical Group. If anything just google "weight loss clinic in ****" and put in the area you live in.

Hello all,

I'm a 5'10" 41yo male, and I started taking Vitamin B-12 Injections on 4/04/2015.  I would have started phentermine on the same day, but my BP was 163/90.  I am guessing this was due to lack of exercise and gaining 20-25lbs, as I have never had high BP.  My Doctor then prescribed me Licinopril - 10-12.5mg medication, and after a week, I am back in the 130/75 range.  During that week, I changed my diet, the times and amount I ate, and began a light cardio program 2 days a week to build stamina.  I went from 230lbs down to 224lbs.  

Today, (Saturday 4/11/2015), I gave myself the 2nd B-12 injection and I also began taking (1) 37.5mg phentermine tablet in the morning, around 7:30am.  I also wanted to get an idea what to expect when I take it before work.  The level of alertness and energy I feel is incredible!  Work-out was great, and I didn't run out of energy.  I also like to workout before I eat breakfast.  Most fitness sites/blogs/programs and experts recommend eating after your work-out.  After all, your burning fat, and fat turns into energy!  

After my morning workout, I have 2 scrambled eggs, a handful of unsalted almonds and a protein shake to repair/support lean muscle growth (60/grams protein).  During the day, I snack on fresh vegetables w/ fat free ranch or Italian dressing, peanuts/almonds, and another protein shake.  For dinner, its chicken or fish w/ steamed/grilled vegetables.  

For many of us, its the lack of energy and/or motivation to "start" to live a healthier lifestyle.  This medication will definitely help you.  Once you get yourself in a routine, and you see the results, it will become 2nd nature.  

For those of you looking for a program such as this, I purchased mine on Groupon for $149, here in the Dallas, TX area.  I searched "weight loss programs". It includes initial Dr visit, 4 week follow-up visit, 4 weeks of B-12 injections, and an 8 week prescription of phentermine.  Hope this helps!!

My goal is to go from 230lbs to 185lbs in 8 weeks.  I'll check back next week to report progess.
