Adipex Diet Pills
If you are considering losing weight, your healthcare provider may prescribe Adipex-P® (phentermine). Adipex diet pills are chemically related to amphetamines. They work by suppressing the appetite and may increase the metabolism. This drug is approved for short-term use only.
Only very short studies have evaluated the effectiveness of medications like Adipex-P. In these studies, people taking these diet pills 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 comes in tablet and capsule form, and is typically taken by mouth once daily (although some people may need to take it twice a day). Both tablets and capsules come in one strength: Adipex-P 37.5 mg. Adipex diet pills 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.
Although most people tolerate have no problems with Adipex, it is not suitable for everyone. Some of the common side effects include headaches, dizziness, and insomnia.
