Im not to sure how much I weigh because I tell tha nurses not to tell me, so I just go by my pant sizes..ive went from a size 22 to a size 12, which is good im 5,9 so the height helps too..haha, ima soon find out my weight in a couple of weeks im almost done with the diet. its been good. so everyone who is on phen, drink lots of water and try to work in exercise its a wonder pill and I recommend it to everyone who is healthy enough to take it.......Good Luck every one and stay positive!!
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 )
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.

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.
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.
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.
I am new to the forum but certainly not new to dieting. I have used Phentermine successfully both with and without the B12 shots but the most effective diet for me is no carb. I lost 100 lbs in 10 months and have never felt better. Good luck to you all and whatever you do make sure it is safe!
Yes there is a place called Bee Healthy and its is in West Columbia. They are great. I lost 9lbs in my first week. I will continue with the shots and Phentermine until I lose at least 40lbs altogether. I am so glad I found a way to lose weight and not feel hungry. The Place is located on Sunset Blvd. Good Luck.
You go to weight loss clinics. Phentermine must be prescribed because it's a controlled substance. It does along with b-12 shots, however you can pay extra and get Levo shots, which are best for weight loss, it has b12, levo which is the best for weight loss, and lidocaine in it. I just got hired at a weight loss clinic in Folsom, CA and actually just started the program myself. The doctor told me for the first 2 days, to take half a pill, in the morning because it lasts 12 hours so I should sleep 12 hours after taking it . (Taking it earlier is better), the packet comes with fiber (for people who need help using the bathroom, take twice a day AS NEEDES it's complimentary ) also comes with the cromium which is taken once a day, as needed to cut your sugar craving. And we give a 1-4 week supply, if you get over a week supply there's b12 supplements, the first week you get the b12 shot . One week is $35, two is $65, three is $100 and four is $125. I recommend people get the one week however, because it's better to be checked up on every week, other wise we tend to slack off. There's also difference brands we offer of the phentermine if the patients complain of headaches. Also, we give 5HTP complimentary if the patients say the phentermine gives them mood swings.
Note: you must meet with the Doctor the first time you want to start the program so he can make sure your BMI isn't too low or something, he checks your heart. Also, if your b/p is too high, we cannot dispense. So you just go to your primary care and take care of that , get on losinopril or something, then you may start the program when your b/p is under 140/90. The physical for the first visit and also required once a year is an extra $30. I think overall it's pretty cheap, if you bring a friend in we give you a week for free. We have other supplements, my coworker is taking garcinia and lots 7 pounds in 2 and a half weeks. Anyone near Folsom interested may visit us and I can explain further at Cascade Medical wellness center. 1835 prairie city rd, suite 200, Folsom, CA 95630. We're open Wednesday's and Thursday's 11:00 AM- 7:00 PM and Friday's 7:00 AM- 3:00 PM . By the way I lost 3 pounds my second day on the program
Since I just started3 days ago, my Second day I have lost 3 pounds. My goal is 40 pounds . And I will also try the garcinia myself. I had to make myself eat at least once a day. The phentermine suppressed my appetite which I like because I tend to over eat. Working at a weight loss center is great. I'm gonna try the LEVO shots that are best for weight loss and let everyone know how it goes
