How Adipex Works for Obese People
The drug Adipex is one that helps people who are obese. Medical experts define obesity as having a body mass index (BMI) of higher than 30. One is considered overweight with a BMI of 25 or more. The BMI is based on height and weight. As a basic example, someone who is 5 feet-6 inches tall should weigh no more than 150 pounds. People who are much over this point, 185 pounds in the example, are considered obese and may be candidates for medications such as Adipex. Obesity can be such a drain on health and lifestyle that many people are happy to take medications to overcome it.
This drug, and others like it, can help people by suppressing their appetite. Many people who are obese eat unconsciously. They may eat out of emotional turmoil, or they may eat simply because they have nothing else to do. For these people, Adipex can be a literal life-saver because it will allow them to continue their lives without feeling the desire to eat. People who exercise and undertake other weight-loss measures, such as increased water consumption and the consumption of more healthy foods, will have even better results with Adipex because these people will be helping the drug out by eating fewer calories or burning more calories in general.
Adipex is not a medication that should be taken lightly. It has serious side effects, which is why it is important to understand how and why it works. This drug is not for recreational use. It is for those individuals who must lose weight. Those people should take it as needed but only until they no longer need it for weight loss. After that, the risks will outweigh the benefits, which is why doctors typically prescribe it only to patients who could have adverse health effects from their weight.
