When and How to Take It

General considerations for when and how to take Adipex-P include the following:
  • The medication comes in tablet and capsule form. It is usually taken by mouth once daily, although some people may need to take it twice a day.
  • Adipex-P should be taken either before breakfast or one to two hours after breakfast.
  • This medication should be combined with an appropriate diet. It is not meant to be used without dieting.
  • Do not take Adipex-P more often (or at higher doses) than prescribed, as this can lead to addiction or dependence.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

Dosing Information

The dose of Adipex-P your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • How you respond to the drug
  • Whether you develop bothersome or dangerous side effects
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be taking.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
