Adipex Diet Pill
Adipex is an appetite suppressant to be used on a short-term basis in conjunction with diet and exercise to lose weight. A name brand to the generic form phentermine, Adipex is in a class of drugs called anorectics that decrease appetite. Adipex is stimulates the central nervous system affecting blood pressure and heart rate and thus is not ideal for all people.
Adipex can be purchased in some locations without a prescription, but because of its potential affects on the central nervous system and possible side effects and drug interactions, it should be taken under the advice of a doctor. A doctor can discuss your health history, eating habits and lifestyle to help determine if Adipex is a viable part of a diet plan for you.
Side effects of Adipex include dry mouth, nausea, and a change in bowel habits, increased heart rate, restlessness and insomnia. Individuals with high blood pressure, glaucoma, and thyroid and heart conditions should not take Adipex. Side effects that become bothersome or are a concern should be directed to a doctor before continuing to take the medication. Alcohol has been known to cause a drug interaction with phentermine and once the medication stopped, withdraw symptoms may occur including depression. Because of potential health problems and side effects, it is best to get a prescription from a doctor to ensure proper dosing before starting to take Adipex.
As a diet pill, Adipex may be useful to control unhealthy appetites but is intended to help patients to change eating habits for long term weight loss success. Weight loss is only achievable through a combination of healthy eating and exercise. Taking Adipex or any other diet pill without a commitment to change eating and lifestyle habits will not prove effective for long term weight loss. Many people find they need help starting a weight loss plan and some diet pills provide that help, but long term success should not depend on medication.
