What are the potential side effects of Adipex P?
What is it?
Adipex-P is one of the many generic brand names of Phentermine, a popular yet controversial appetite suppressant. It has been on the market since 1990 and is well known in the weight-loss world; often referred to as simply, ‘Adipex’.
The controversy that surrounds Phentermine itself is due to its characteristic similarity to Amphetamine. Like Amphetamine, Phentermine is a stimulant that also works on the chemicals in the brain that affect the appetite.
By suppressing the appetite and stimulating the body, we burn more fat cells at the same time as reducing our calorie intake.
Does it work and what are the side effects?
There is little question as to whether or not Adipex-P can help you lose weight, it has undergone numerous clinical trials both as Adipex-P and its generic, Phentermine, and the results proved that this particular substance was effective at reducing weight.
However, clinical trials and studies have also reported the dangerous side effects of taking the drug and many have recommended that Phentermine only be used under the supervision of a Doctor or Health Professional for a short period of time in the case of dangerous obesity.
There is an arm’s length list of precautions when it comes to Adipex-P; the drug cannot be taken if you have any allergies, have high blood pressure, glaucoma, heart disease, depression, anxiety, an over active thyroid, history of drug or alcohol abuse or have ever suffered a stroke.
What do the customers say?
In general, customers that have used Adipex-P have reported successful weight-loss when combined with exercise and healthy eating, but many have also experienced the side effects associated with the drug.
Most people have lost on average 3-5lbs a week while taking Adipex-P, which, while still an impressive amount of weight-loss, is achievable with diet and exercise alone, and without the risk of side effects.
Is it worth it?
Given the nature of Adipex-P and its generic, Phentermine, it would be irresponsible to recommend such a medication for general weight-loss. This drug was designed for the short term loss of weight in dangerously obese people and should only be used under the watchful eye of a physician due to the risks and side effects linked to it.
