Adipex Phentermine is a drug commonly used by persons who are seeking to decrease their weight. Even though a large selection of diet pills are available over-the-counter, these products may not be very effective. Furthermore, some products include ingredients which are dangerous to one's health. For this reason, persons seeking a healthy weight loss supplement should consult a physician and inquire about Adipex.
Primarily, Adipex functions as an appetite suppressant. Once the drug enters the blood stream, it begins to stimulate the central nervous system. By doing so, a person's heart rate and blood pressure elevates, which in turn reduces their appetite. Obviously, the less hungry we are, the less we eat. Hence, many people have effectively and safely loss weight by using this medication.
If using Adipex, close monitoring by a physician is critical. Thus, dieters should avoid buying this medication online from pharmacies that do not require prescriptions. Because Adipex is habit forming, this medication should only be used as a short-term supplement.
Moreover, due to the multitude of possible side effects, physicians must keep a close eye on patients to ensure that adverse effects do not occur.
With any type of medication, the risk for side effects is high. Persons taking Adipex may also experience side effects of varying degrees. Some symptoms lessen within a few days and do not interfere with daily activities. On the other hand, patients should discontinue use and consult a physician if the following occurs:
- Allergic Reaction (trouble breathing, hives, swelling, etc.)
- Irregular Heartbeat
- Blurred Vision
- Severe Headaches
Less serious side effects may include anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, diarrhea, constipation, dry mouth, decreased sex drive, and headache.
Prior to taking Adipex, patients should inform doctor of other medications currently being taken such as anti-depressants, heart medications, birth control, etc. In some cases, Adipex could decrease the effectiveness of certain medications.
