Phentermine (Adipex-P)

FDA approved appetite suppressant used for the short-term use as part of an overall weight reduction program that also includes dieting, exercise, and behavioral modification.

It is typically prescribed for individuals who are at increased medical risk because of their weight.

The drug is for use only by obese individuals who have a condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol that could lead to serious increased medical problems.

It works by helping to release certain chemicals in the brain that control appetite.

As Phentermine may disrupt normal sleep patterns, avoid taking a dose late in the day – your last dose should be taken 4-6 hours prior to going to bed.

Phentermine is not recommended for children under the age of 16.

Take Phentermine ONLY as directed by your doctor. Do NOT take more of it, do NOT take it more often, and do NOT take it for a longer period than your doctor has prescribed.
