HOW EFFECTIVE IS ADIPEX-P?

Adipex is an effective form of therapy for the obese patient that needs to lose weight to decrease diseases associated with significant obesity. The magnitude of the weight loss will depend on the degree of caloric restriction and the use of a graded exercise program.

HOW LONG CAN I CONTINUE TO USE ADIPEX-P?

ADIPEX-P is a short-term drug that helps you to start losing weight and then keep on going when you are ready to carry on, on your own. Your body starts to build up a resistance to the effects of ADIPEX-P after a few weeks of treatment, which is when you should be well on your way to a new lifestyle and ready to stop ADIPEX-P.

Appetite suppressants are not a substitute for proper diet. For maximum effects, this must be used in conjunction with a diet and exercise program.

SORTING THROUGH GENERIC VS. BRAND NAME DRUGS :

When a pharmaceutical company develops a new drug, it gives the drug two names. The first, its generic name represents the chemical structure or chemical form of the drug. The generic name of a drug never changes. In this case the generic name of these drugs we are discussing below is PHENTERMINE. The second name given to a drug is its brand name. This is the name given to the medicine by the pharmaceutical company and has nothing to do with its chemical form. The brand names of the drugs we are discussing are ADIPEX-P and IONAMIN. They are both fairly similar in that they are composed of PHENTERMINE, and subsequently given different names by the companies that manufacturer them. No other pharmaceutical company can ever use the brand name of the drug at any time.

PHENTERMINE HYDROCHLORIDE (GENERIC NAME) -

ADIPEX-P AND IONAMIN (BRAND NAMES) :

PHENTERMINE, the generic name for ADIPEX-P and IONAMIN comes in immediate release or time-release formulas. Immediate release pills enter your blood stream as soon as you take them, and time-release capsules release their medication into your body over an extended period of time, generally 8 or 12 hours. As you can see, there are many popular brand names of PHENTERMINE. Nonetheless, all of the above named compounds are considered clinically equivalent in producing weight loss.

IONAMIN

IONAMIN is PHENTERMINE set in resin. The resin allows the compound to be released slowly into the blood stream. Some patients prefer it because they believe it to be associated with fewer side effects, others do not. It is the only PHENTERMINE resin on the market. It comes in 30 mg and 15 mg capsules. The 15 mg capsule is gray and yellow, the 30 mg capsule is all yellow. Each capsule is labeled "IONAMIN".

ADIPEX-P VS. XENICAL:

PHENTERMINE is an appetite suppressant. XENICAL inhibits fat absorption into the body. So both may be used in conjunction with each other for those who are seriously obese.

BE SURE TO TELL US ON YOUR MEDICAL HISTORY/PERSONAL PROFILE IF :

- You have high blood pressure.
- You have an over-active thyroid.
- You have glaucoma.
- You have Diabetes Mellitus.
- You have emotional problems.
- You are pregnant.
- You are currently breast-feeding.

DRUG INTERACTIONS :

Inform your doctor about all the medicines you use, (prescription and nonprescription) especially if you take high blood pressure medicine or MAO inhibitors (e.g., furazolidone, phenelzine, selegiline, tranylcypromine) or any other weight loss medicine. Decongestants are commonly found in over-the-counter cough and cold medicine.[back to top]

SIDE EFFECTS :

MILD :

Blurred vision, dry mouth, sleeplessness, irritability, stomach upset or constipation may occur the first few days as your body adjusts to the medication. Other adverse events include central nervous system effects, gastrointestinal disturbances, and changes in libido. If these effects persist or become bothersome, you may have to discontinue use. Exercise caution when prescribing anti-obesity drugs for patients with hypertension. If this medication makes you dizzy or lightheaded, avoid driving or engaging in activities requiring alertness. Alcohol can increase unwanted side effects of dizziness. Limit its use.

MODERATE :

Chest pain, pounding heart, difficulty urinating, breathing difficulties or swelling while taking this medication.

SEVERE :

Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) and cardiac valvular disease have been reported in patients receiving a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine (phen-fen) or dexfenfluramine. The possibility of an association between PPH and the use of 
ADIPEX-P alone cannot be ruled out.

CONTRAINDICATIONS :

ADIPEX-P is contraindicated in patients with arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, and moderate to severe hypertension.
