Also marketed as Adipex-P, Adipex is one of several different diet drugs that is currently available on the market with a prescription. It is a drug that is primarily a stimulant, but is also an appetite suppressant. Though most diet drugs are not marketed with people with other health issues in mind – aside from obesity – Adipex is geared specifically toward individuals who suffer from diabetes, high cholesterol and/or high blood pressure in addition to their obesity. This product, which some would compare to an amphetamine-like chemical, is to be used alongside a proper nutritious diet and activity regimen as prescribed by a licensed doctor.

The only way to legally obtain this weight loss drug is with a doctor’s prescription. This prescription drug, as with any prescription drug, comes with potential side-effects. These may include sleeping problems, dizziness, a rapid heartbeat, blurred vision, chest pain, and diarrhea. These are associated mostly with the stimulant element of Adipex. It is recommended that this drug be taken in the morning as opposed to late at night to avoid problems such as insomnia and other difficulties sleeping.

PROS

The benefits of Adipex are that it can only be obtained with the permission of a licensed physician. This helps to make sure that only the people who are proper candidates for this drug will actually be taking it. This is important because Adipex is not meant simply for cosmetic weight loss. Instead, it is designed only for individuals who are obese, who are over the age of eighteen years, and who also suffer from diabetes and high cholesterol and/or blood pressure. Another advantage of this weight loss medication is that there is a great deal of information available for everyone to read on the internet, including reviews, warnings, and other useful data.

CONS

The drawbacks of Adipex include the fact that as a prescription diet pill, it does have the potential for certain unpleasant side effects in some users. Furthermore, many dieters are looking for a more convenient solution than a pill that needs a prescription in order to buy it. Moreover, there is no official Adipex website that offers any clinical studies to prove that the drug is effective, or even testimonials from satisfied customers.

When compared to other similar drugs on the market, Adipex seems quite comparable to many other prescription weight loss medications that are already available. It does have the advantage of having stricter guidelines and regulations than non-prescription weight loss supplements, but it may also have stronger side effects. No cost for this drug is revealed on an official website for this product. It is highly recommended that you talk to your doctor before considering Adipex as a weight loss option.

I lost a lot of weight while on adipex. It totally takes away your food cravings and hunger, but it gave me really bad headaches. Unfortunately I had to stop taking it because I was put on anti depressants and have since gained the weight back, but as soon as I can get off these anti depressants I want to get back on it to get rid of the weight all over again. sigh.

I went on adipex (under the guidance of my physician) to get a jump start on my weight loss. I lost over 50 lbs. I had tones of energy to exersize, and a lot less appetite. It’s been amazing and I feel really good about myself now.
