Adipex Medication Information
A healthcare provider may prescribe Adipex-P® (phentermine) to help adults lose weight. However, because this drug is not suitable for everyone, make sure to review the prescribing information on Adipex medication before starting treatment.
For example, you may not be able to take Adipex if you have certain medical conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetes, or a history of drug or alcohol abuse. Also, you may not be able to safely use it if you are currently taking certain medications (including some vitamins, herbal supplements, and nonprescription drugs).
Although most people do not experience problems with this medication, Adipex can cause side effects. Some of the commonly reported ones include dizziness, headaches, and insomnia. The medication comes in tablet and capsule form, and is usually taken by mouth once daily (although some people may need to take it twice a day). For more information on Adipex medication, talk to your pharmacist or healthcare provider.
