Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects of Adipex-P listed in this article. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell if any particular side effect (such as insomnia) is actually caused by Adipex-P or other factors. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking this medication or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
