Adipex-P

The active ingredient in the prescription diet pill Phentermine.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Adipex Phentermine (Adipex P) diet pill is a prescription diet pill that is used to help people lose weight who are obese (have a Body Mass Index of 30 or higher) or have serious health risks due to their size. It is more commonly known by the brand name Phentermine. It works as an appetite suppressant. It is taken in conjunction with certain food requirements and an exercise program. Adipex P is only used for a few weeks (less than 12 weeks) since its effectiveness decreases with prolonged use.

The drug is taken one time each day either in the morning or 10 hours before bedtime, because of its known effects of interrupting sleep.

You should take Adipex P only and exactly how it was directed to you by your physician.

PRO
  • Prescription Phentermine has been approved by the FDA
  • Clinically shown to aid in weight loss in obese individuals
CON
  • Long-term use can cause irritability, skin problems or sleeping difficulties
  • Can become addictive
  • Various and numerous side effects are associated with Adipex
  • Be sure to read the lengthy disclaimer regarding health conditions that do not support taking Adipex P, such as high blood pressure, anxiety or heart disease
  • Side effects include raising blood pressure and heart rate
DIET and NUTRITION

While taking Adipex P, you are to follow a sound diet of balanced meals and snacks. You are also to avoid alcohol while you are taking this drug. The drug is most effective when it is accompanied by a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise regimen.

EXERCISE

It is recommended to follow a regular exercise routine when taking Adipex P. Be sure to discuss with your physician first and get his or her approval. Given the stimulating effects of Adipex P and its effect of raising heart rate and elevating blood pressure, following an exercise plan that has been suggested by your doctor is highly recommended.

CONCLUSION

Adipex P is a prescription weight loss drug that may help in weight loss, but it also comes with a host of side effects and risks. Since it can only be used for a small amount of time, the individual is then responsible for learning how to eat sensibly once the prescribed amount of time for taking the drug is complete. Given its side effects, its drug interactions and its risk for addiction, Adipex P must be taken under the guidance and observation of a medical doctor.

My dad was overweight and he started on the pill and almost instantly he started shedding the pounds. In about 4 months he's lost around 60lbs and has dropped sizes like mad. I saw how it worked and wanted to try it so I told my aunt (who is a doctor) if it was right for me. She was scared at first but after a few tests she said I could take it for two months. I'm 5'5 and was 185lbs and wearing size 13 jeans. I started the pill in July but on/off. Then I finished it in August and didn't get serious with them again until September. Mid-September I went to a doctor's office to weigh myself and I was 166lbs. Now it's mid-October and I haven't weighted myself but everyone notices the difference and I'm wearing size 7 jeans. This pills is the most amazing pill ever. Nothing ever worked for me and I was overweight all my life. It's great.

I have taken this medicine once before and lost about 7-9 pounds in 2 weeks but it quit working and I didn't lose another pound for the rest of the 3 weeks I took it. I didn't get more because it quit working and as soon as I stopped I gained back the weight I lost and more. I might recommend this if u need to lose a few pounds before vacation, etc but definitley not for permanent weight loss!

I started taking Adipex on September 2, and by the 5th, I lost 6 lbs. I just weighed myself on the following Wednesday and I lost another 3 lbs, which totals 9 lbs lost in 7 days. Very good results. The only thing is you need to follow a good diet. I can only small meals, but I try to include the basic food groups. I think the pill is wonderful, I just hope after I stop taking them I can maintain my weight.
