Adipex 37.5 mg
Adipex-P® (phentermine) is a prescription weight loss medication. It comes in the form of tablets and capsules, and is only available in one strength -- Adipex 37.5 mg. Before prescribing an amount, your healthcare provider will consider several factors, such as how you respond to the medication, the particular Adipex product, and other medications you are taking.
The recommended dose for weight loss is Adipex 37.5 mg once daily in the morning. If you want to use a lower dosage, you should use the tablet form of the medication, as the capsules cannot be accurately cut in half.
This medication is intended for short-term use only (just a few weeks). Longer use is unlikely to be effective, as the body adjusts to the appetite-suppressing properties of Adipex. Also, this drug has the potential to be abused, which is another reason why use should be limited to just a few weeks.
