About Adipex (Phentermine)
Adipex is a brand-name formulation of the drug phentermine, a medication used to treat obesity. The medication helps to increase your heart rate, so you burn more calories at rest which translates to burning more fat which results in weight loss. It is recommended that anything that stimulates your heart rate the an EKG be done to assess if your heart is ok to take it! Adipex should always be used under the supervision of a doctor who has experience with it.
With obesity comes with a range of possible health problems. In order to reduce the risk that a person has of developing serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and more, it’s critical for them to lose weight. Adipex can help them do so.
Much like an amphetamine, Adipex is a stimulant. It works via your central nervous system as a method of suppressing your appetite. Unlike amphetamines, though, Adipex is perfectly legal. It is also safe as you are always under the care of a physician and your progress is closely monitored.
A Foundational Part of Your Weight Loss Regimen
Taking Adipex is not a self-service method of weight loss. You’ll need to follow up with your physician on a regular basis in order to monitor your weight loss and your overall health.
When you are placed on a weight loss program that utilizes Adipex, it is typically one foundational component. It is designed to be used in conjunction with a specialized diet and an exercise plan. For the best results, it’s imperative that you see a doctor who focuses on using Adipex with a diet plan and exercise routine that is drawn up by that same doctor.
Only your doctor can decide your specific dosing based on your unique medical condition, your health needs, and your weight-loss goals.
Generally speaking, like other formulations of phentermine, Adipex is taken on an empty stomach before breakfast or sometimes, an hour or two after breakfast.
