Adipex-P, commonly referred to as just Adipex, is an effective prescription weight loss medication.

What is Adipex-P

In the diet pill market, there are hundreds of medications from which a patient can choose. Some of the diet pill names include: Adipex-P, Fastin, Obephen, Panshape M, Pro-Fast SA, Teramine, Phentride, and others. But what many people don’t realize is that most diet pills prescribed by a doctor do the same thing: they result in rapid weight loss. And what patients also don’t realize is that pills like Adipex-P can also be harmful to health when not taken properly.

Adipex-P is a brand name weight loss drug manufactured by Teva Biologics and Specialty Products. This medication contains 37.5mg of Phentermine Hydrochloride, which is the most commonly prescribed dosage of this drug to patients who are heavily overweight or obese.

Where to Find Adipex-P

Adipex-P is not a medication that a person should buy on the Internet. This is a controlled substance that contains amphetamine type chemical, one that is addicting and can be harmful. Patients who want to try this drug need to go to their doctor for a complete medical history and physical in order to ensure they are a good candidate for the drug. Those patients who are already taking medications for other health conditions may not be suitable patients. For example, those who already have high blood pressure or heart disease can not take Adipex-P. The stimulant quality of this medication can cause the heart to beat too hard, leading to more heart troubles and even a heart attack. Patients who are on MAOIs should not take Adipex-P either. These two medications can cause a dangerous reaction, even if weight loss is achieved.

The Side Effects of Adipex-P

What many people may not realize is that every medication has side effects. While it might be nice to think that prescriptions are all safe – this is not the case. In fact, the reason why medications are prescribed is that they have the potential for side effects – and they need to be controlled. Adipex-P has a number of side effects that a person will want to consider before they take the substance. Some of the common side effects include: dizziness, dry mouth, racing heart, diarrhea, constipation, anxiety, jitters, and more. While many of these side effects can stop over time, they can be upsetting to your life too. Non-prescription alternatives for overweight weight management support, like FenFast, may also give a patient some mild and temporary symptoms, but these side effects can typically be avoided by following the package directions responsibly.

Diet Pills Require Patient Responsibility

While Adipex-P is a pill which can cause harm to a patient, not all diet pills carry the same risk. Pills like FenFast are much safer while still giving patients the diet help they need. Before a patient considers Adipex-P, it might be wise to check to see if safer alternatives exist. However, if the patient is on any other medication, a trip to the doctor is always a good idea before start a new diet program.

No matter how much weight you might need to lose, diet pills can help. And while many people have taken Adipex-P without any troubles, searching for safer alternatives is best for most patients. Safety first, weight loss second.

Adipex does work but you have to eat right to. Eating right is a must once u reach your goal if u don’t won’t the weight to come back. You had to get if from a weight loss doctor. I get mine filled at Kmart for $12.

I dont want to waste the money on it if isn’t going to work. I am willing to try it, if I hear from a real person, not a testimonial, that it does work. I am 5 ft 3 in, 190 lbs, & freaking out. this is not a usual weight for me, 140 is my normal weight. i just went through a very rough time, & gained it back… any encouragement???


LL November 18, 2011 at 9:16 am

How can I get these if I live in Canada? Thank you


admin August 10, 2011 at 8:42 pm

SB – If you are referring to Adipex-P diet pills, then you need to visit your doctor and get them to give you a prescription for it. Then, the safest way to buy it would be to go to a walk-in pharmacy and fill your prescription that way.

If you are referring to FenFast diet pills, then you can order them online through this website’s page Yes, it is shipped to Canada.

I am currently taking Adipex p. My primary don’t prescribe such drugs but the dr I work for does. This medication is very powerful. It works quickly. I lost 22lbs in 30 days. Plz if you have any medical issuses don’t take it. This pill puts stress on the heart and kidneys. It also alters the CNS and can alter ones mood and emotions. This is a med you should not stop taking abruptly, you must be taking off slowly. A drop in chemicals in the blood stream can cause severe depression. You will still need to exercise and eat properly. Ur body still needs a low level of fats to help absorb vites and minerals you need so don’t binge on rabbit food. You’ll need to take a daily vite to supplement lack of food. And you should drink protein shakes or snacks to keep ur body moving. If you starve ur body you will do damage to ur heart, brain, liver and kidneys.

This is a drug that works but plz use it wisely, it can cause serious harm to the body.

Which Rite Aide did you Apidex-P and under what name?


Amy May 10, 2011 at 12:29 pm

How old do you have to be to start this? I am 40, but my overweight Daughter is 17. While Im against giving a teenager a pill like this, It may benefit her to some extent, considering that if she could lose weight (She DOES exercise regularly) It could act as a preventative to diabetes, as Ive been told she is “borderline” She has JUST turned 17, in April, is about 5’6″, and almost 200 pounds. I can sit on HER lap!

I also got my Adipex from Rite Aid. It was not covered by insurance but only cost $27 for one month’s worth. I’m ok with that.

So far I am taking one pill a day and I have restless sleep and mild headaches. I was also in a meeting all day yesterday and was feeling pretty restless – moreso than normal.

As to erothfeldt’s question, I would never take someone’s advice on here over that of your doctor. That just doesn’t make sense.


erothfeldt March 22, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I was wanting to know if I could take 2 of my 37.5 adipex pills my doctor prescribed me? He told me I could break one and take one and a half, but they already have a bad taste to them. I don’t think I could handle doing that, it would be so much easier to just take them as whole. If you could help me out that would be great. Thanks again for the answers you may be given me.


carlin March 7, 2011 at 1:42 pm

The adipex does work. I highly recommend these pills. I have taken them over the years off and on to lose my desired weight. They will make you a little jittery if you drink caffeine. The pills will cut your appetite and you will have to force your self to intake something on your stomach. If they are too much break in half and take half the pill daily.

Most of the weight is water weight anyway and will come off very quickly, however once you lose your desired weight to not indulge in over eating because the weight will come back. I filled my stomach on salads. Even in the morning I would eat a small salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber and the same for lunch or dinner with a boil egg. Trust me you will lose the weight but drink lots of water.

You will love the results.


Annalice March 3, 2011 at 7:05 am

My doctor prescribed adipex which my insurance didn’t cover, but I only paid $40 for s month supply with the ptescription My first month I lost 20 lbs, I literally had to force myself to eat. I’ve lost a total if 60 lbs within 6 months


erothfeldt March 22, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Where did you get you prescription filled, because my insurance doesn’t pay either but I only payed 27 and a little change for mine. I used a Rite Aid Pharmacy. It does indeed help you get weight off.


Jackie November 24, 2011 at 7:21 am

Kmart $12


mike February 18, 2011 at 8:58 am

And truley what affects should i have. I work in a prison and have to be at the top of my game


mike February 18, 2011 at 8:56 am

is the adipex p a good way to drop 50 lbs in 4 months. And is it safe for sthma patients


kevin January 14, 2011 at 9:00 pm

Do you have sibutramina


admin January 27, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Sibutramine is a prescription drug and cannot be purchased legally online. If you are looking to buy sibutramine you will first need to obtain a prescription from your doctor then purchase it from a reliable source, such as a walk-in pharmacy.
