    Re: Questions about Adipex?

    It's really nice that you care so much about her. Adipex is the brand name for Phentermine with is an appetite suppressant. I am on phentermine 37.5mg right now and it does wonders on my apetite. I do get hungry, but really never feel like eating much. It is pretty safe (as long as you take it as directed and have a doctor watch you), it's been around for 40+ years and it's the only effective medication that has helped me to lose weight.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about, just be supportive and i'm sure everything will be okay

    Re: Questions about Adipex?

    Thank you very much for your help....one thing that concerned me was that she is scheduled to go to the dr. every 2 weeks....but...I guess that is a good thing, so they can moniter her....my thinking was that it must be dangerous if they needed to see her so often...may I ask at what rate you are losing your weight.....she has lost 27 pounds in 3 weeks and that sounded like an awful lot to me...I worry that she is not eating enough..just overprotective, I guess..... thanks a bunch. ST

    Re: Questions about Adipex?

    I lost about 7 pounds the first week and 2ish pounds after that. It really depends how overweight you are. She's probably lost a lot of water weight and it will slow down soon. The first time I was on phentermine I lost 13 pounds the first two weeks and I was about 180 pounds. So, it's probably normal.
