The use of Adipex, like all other types of prescription medication, does come with the risk of certain side effects. The FDA has approved this drug for use for weight loss in individuals who are obese and who have obtained this drug through a doctor’s prescription. While this does indicate that the drug is safe to use within the right circumstances, it does not change the fact that you should be aware of potential Adipex side effects before you start taking the medication, and should know what actions to take should you experience any of these side effects.

While some users of Adipex will experience no side effects at all, others could experience effects ranging from very mild to severe. Most commonly, side effects will be mild and will not last beyond the first few days of use. That said, it important to know what to do depending on what side effects you experience and how severe they are.

The most common Adipex side effects are the following. Should they become bothersome or should they persist, continue the use of the drug, but contact your doctor as soon as you can to discuss the way you should either manage your symptoms or change your weight loss plan: sex drive changes, bad taste in the mouth, diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, sleep difficulties, sleeplessness, restlessness, headache, dry mouth, an exaggerated sense of wellbeing, nervousness, impotence, overstimulation, or upset stomach.

That said, if any of the following severe Adipex side effects should occur at any time, it is very important that you seek immediate medical attention: severe allergic reaction (which can include symptoms ranging from swelling in the tongue, face, lips, or mouth, difficulty breathing, itching, hives, rash, or tightness in the chest), chest pain, uncharacteristic thoughts or behaviors, heart palpitations or pounding in the chest, a rapid heartbeat, fainting, tremor, shortness of breath, or swelling in the feet or legs.

It is important to note that this is not a complete list of any possible side effects that could occur throughout the use of Adipex. Pay close attention to the way you feel and to the condition of your body as you use the drug and make note of any changes. Regular doctor appointments should be kept in order to monitor your health during the period that you use this drug. Should you have questions about any of your side effects at any severity, do not hesitate to speak with your doctor at the first available instance.
