Phentermine (Adipex) is an appetite suppressant that has successfully been helping people lose weight since it was released onto the market. It is designed to be used in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
How It Works
Adipex works by affecting parts of the central nervous system which effectively suppress the feeling of hunger. Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite. The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc. Adipex is known to increase levels of energy within patients which can be expended through exercise.
With all prescription appetite suppressants, you should consult your doctor about side effects to watch for. Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications you take, as some can interact with phentermine.
Common side effects of phentermine can include:
- blurred vision
- constipation or diarrhea
- restlessness or trouble sleeping
- changes in sex drive
- bad taste in mouth or dry mouth
- hair loss
These are just a few of the potential side effects—ask your doctor for a complete list.
Phentermine, Phendimetrazine, and Qsymia should NOT be used as a substitute for a proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, they must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise. Any modifications to your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning.
