A Adipex is one of the popular brand names for the prescription weight loss pills “Phentermine.” It is classified under the amphetamine and phenethylamine class. However, it is not actually an amphetamine, but rather an appetite suppressant used to treat obesity. Adipex should not be taken after 3PM due to the risk of insomnia. Some have claimed that Adipex or Phentermine was part of the Phen fen craze, one of the “phen fens” standing for Phentermine. But it has never been released to the general public outside of prescription form!
Adipex does work technically speaking. It was approved in the 50’s for sale by the FDA, and it has promoted weight loss and helped many obese patients to learn improved eating habits causing 10-15% more significant weight loss than achieved before. It suppresses appetite, increases energy, and helps you to lose weight.
Adipex actually only works for a few weeks before it suddenly stops promoting weight loss, sometimes promoting extreme and sudden weight gain. In addition, users have often complained of allergic reactions, shortness of breath after mild exertion, swelling, chest pain, unusual thoughts or behavior, severe headaches, blurred vision, buzzing in your ears, anxiety, confusion, chest pain, shortness of breath, uneven heartbeats, and seizures.
