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.

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.
