Adipex which is actually Phentermine, is a phenethlamine used in patients who are in danger of complications associated with their weight. The drug is an apetite suppressant. There are two formulas for Phentermine. Adipex is the one that is a formula that releases immediately. Lonamin and Duromine are formulas that are slower to release the drug. If you order Adipex it is taken orally via a pill.
Adipex was one of the drugs that made up the controversial Fen-phen drug. Although the other part of this drug, fenfluramine, has been taken off of the market after reports of heart problems associated with the drug, Phentermine is still available on its own. However, Adipex is considered a controlled substance since it is closely associated with amphetamines. Still, it is legal to order Adipex with a prescription.
When you order Adipex the drug works by stimulated the neurons in the brain. These neurons release certain neurotransmitters including epinephrine and norepinephrine. Epinephrine is commonly known as adrenalin. These chemicals act on the body by suppressing the hunger signal and creating a loss of appetite.
The FDA recommends patients use Adipex for only a short period up to 12 weeks. They also suggest using Adipex in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program. You should definitely consult your doctor before you order Adipex. However, you should also consult your doctor before starting any diet and exercise program as well.
;As with any drug, you should be aware of the side effects before you order Adipex. Adipex has relatively mild side effects especially compared to that of amphetamines. Side effects include tachycardia, increased blood pressure and heart rate, palpitations, restlessness, and trouble sleeping. If you have a history of drug abuse you should not order Adipex. Adipex patients could develop a psychological addiction to it if they use it too long.
