Does Adipex Work?

Adipex-P® (phentermine) is a prescription weight loss medication. It is approved for short-term use only (a few weeks), along with an appropriate diet, exercise, and behavior modification for obesity treatment in adults. But does Adipex work? Only very short studies have evaluated the effectiveness of such medications.
 
In these studies, people taking medications such as Adipex lost more weight than those not taking them, but the difference was small (only a fraction of a pound more per week for the people taking the weight loss medication). Studies also suggest that the effects of these medications on weight loss decrease after the first few weeks.
 
Adipex works mostly as an appetite suppressant, although it may also help to increase metabolism. After a few weeks, the appetite suppressant effect usually wears off. When this happens, the drug should be stopped; it should not be increased or continued in any way.
