User Comments:


For Obesity “I love this pill. I’m 46, 5’9″ and weigh 294lb when I started back on this pill a 9 days ago. Down 10lbs. I am on a doctor supervised liquid diet plan. He prescribed me Tenuate because I never forgot this little helper because on the same style diet plan with tenuate I lost 90lbs about 16 years ago. After my weight loss journey 16 years ago I put back the weight about 5.5 lbs a year. 🙁 well now I’m back at it just older now. But this little pill hasn’t changed, still great. Minimal side effects. I am experiencing side effects of a dry mouth ( so I’m drinking more water) and Insomnia. The insomnia isn’t crazy but I’m wide awake for the late late show, whereas I didn’t use to be. I’ll take the extra TV time over being a over weight any day.Ask your doctor about this pill. It works.”

For Obesity “Its good for controlling your appetite but there are some other side effects than mentioned above including several joint pain and stiffness of lower jaw which some times feel like its locked specially when I’m dehydrated and it looses its effect over time so its best to start on lower doses”

For Obesity “I was prescribed Tenuate extended-release tabs because of my caffeine sensitivity. Of course, I noticed a change but not the jittery/shaky feeling that comes with harsh stimulants. My side effects included nausea, constipation, blurred vision (which I didn’t associate to the meds). I lost 15 pounds over a three month period including the winter holiday period but noticed after that I was not losing anymore. Two months later and a 6 lb weight gain, I’ve decided to stop taking the meds. Immediately, I noticed extreme exhaustion and an inability to get going.”

For Obesity “I started taking adipex but the insomnia and other side effects were just becoming unbearable so my doctor switched me over to tenuate 75mg ER . Besides the side effects listed tenuate has been pretty bearbable vs adipex and I can cope with the few side effects they are not too bad . I have noticed for me that the weight loss is slower on tenuate but as long as I am eating right and excercising the weight comes off . I’m losing 1-2 pounds a week so I’m staying on target and at a healthy weight loss . At the begining you will lose the first week for me it was 7 pounds then after 2 weeks it slowed to 1.5 pounds a week . You have to eat healthy choices & excerise or u will just gain back what u lost.”

For Obesity “I have been taking Tenuate time released 75mg for almost 3 weeks. I am down 9 lbs. I started at 130, and amNow 121.4. I have noticed that it is not working as well now as it did in the first week or two. At the beginning I was never hungry, I would have to force myself to eat something. Now, I have noticed the hunger pains. I am hoping to loose another 11 lbs.”

For Obesity “Loved this medicine at start a month ago. Lost 9 pounds. I am not obese but after a hard year and surgery I had to give up exercise. I gained almost 20 lbs in two years and I was miserable. My doctor realized I needed a kick start and prescribed this… I LOVED … I have been more attentive and energetic and not eating just for the sake of eating or being bored. After a month I feel like my body is too used to it and not the same as day one … But I am going to keep going and try to lose 10 more pounds… However I will say that I have not had bad side affects at all …”
