Generic Adipex

Generic Adipex, or phentermine, is a prescription weight loss medication. It is recommended not to take this pill after 3PM because of the risks of insomnia. To this date, it has not been released in a non-prescription form; thus negating the claims of some people that this was part of the “Phen fen craze” that happened a few years back.
The original adipex was approved way back in 1959 by the American Food and Drug Authority (FDA). This medication gained much popularity since 1990 after it was manufactured by a company known as Gate Pharmaceuticals. Due to its rising popularity, generic Adipex was prescribed by several doctors to their overweight and obese patients, in an attempt to control their weight gain and help them shed their excess fat. This is important in order to avoid strokes, heart attacks, and other heart related illnesses and problems. It also helps in lessening the chances of other problems connected with being obese or overweight such as diabetes, lung problems, and others. However, it is important to note down that ever since its initial approval back in the 1950s, no further clinical tests and trials have been performed on this medication, which means that there are no new findings to support its claims or to contradict them.

The Pros

One of the biggest advantages of Adipex generic is the fact that it has been proven to work in technical terms. It has been used by a lot of patients, and is still being prescribed by doctors all over the United States. This medication has been helping overweight and obese patients fight their current conditions ever since it was approved by the FDA in the 50s. The main effect of the product, which helps in weight loss, is the suppression of the user’s appetite. This helps the user decrease their weight by ten to fifteen percent. At the same time, it has also been known to increase the user’s energy levels and help improve the metabolism as well.

The Cons

The most talked about con of the adipex generic is the fact that it will work for the first few weeks in which you use it, but later on it abruptly stops. There were cases wherein people claim that it even does the opposite by promoting sudden weight gain. Other complaints from former users also include allergic reactions to the drug. Mild exertion, chest pain, shortness of breath, swelling, blurred vision, severe headaches, unusual thoughts and behaviour, seizures, anxiety, uneven heartbeats, and buzzing in the ears are some of the other side effects experienced with using this drug.


When it comes right down to it, generic Adipex really does work and promote weight loss. However, it does have some side effects that are also common with other weight loss drugs that are available in the market today. The most serious con is still the sudden stop of its efficiency, which can cause real problems. If you are willing to risk that, then this is a great pill to start your weight loss program with.
