What is Adipex?
Adipex is a prescription drug for weight loss that is used along with exercise, a low-calorie diet, and other behavior changes to lose weight.
Adipex is available in the form of an oral tablet, oral capsule, and an orally disintegrating tablet. This drug helps in stimulating the central nervous system (nerves and brain), which helps in increasing your blood pressure and heart rate and decreasing your appetite.
Pregnant women should avoid using Adipex-P.
You may have problems using Adipex if you have severe or uncontrolled high blood pressure, a history of heart diseases such as coronary artery disease, heart rhythm problems, or congestive heart failure, overactive thyroid, extreme agitation or nervousness, glaucoma, or if you take other diet pills or a history of drug abuse.
Stay away from Adipex if you have taken an MAO inhibitor in the last 14 days. Avoid using MAO inhibitors such as isocarboxazid, linezolid, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, or tranylcypromine, or if you have received a methylene blue injection. Combining MAO inhibitors with Adipex-P can lead to a dangerous drug interaction.
Patients who were taking Adipex-P had rare cases of pulmonary hypertension as well as heart valve disease. If you develop symptoms such as difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, lightheadedness that makes you feel like you might pass out, swelling in your legs, chest pain, or a fast heartbeat, stop taking Adipex-P right away.
