It is recommended to start the obesity therapy with an initial dose of Adipex 37.5 mg. It is recommended to take Adipex in the morning, 40-60 minutes before a meal or within 1-2 hours after a meal. To maintain a constant therapeutic effect, it is desirable to take Adipex pills regularly at the same time.
Adipex is one of Phentermine drug trade names, which has been used for weight loss for 55 years. The FDA approved Phentermine for obesity treatment in 1959. In 1980, Adipex drug appeared on the market. Adipex manufacturer is Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.
One Adipex 37.5mg tablet contains Phentermine hydrochloride, equivalent to 30 mg of Phentermine base. Adipex tablets are the only Phentermine containing tablets, which can be divided in half. Half a tablet Adipex contains 18.75mg of Phentermine hydrochloride, which is equivalent to 15 mg of Phentermine base.
If a person develops an allergic reaction or side effects (dizziness, nausea, dry mouth, sleeplessness, anxiety), when taking Adipex 37.5mg (Phentermine 30 mg), the initial dose (Adipex 37.5 mg) may be reduced or divided into two doses (half an Adipex tablet in the morning and in the afternoon).
Half an Adipex 18.75 mg tablet is equivalent to the minimum Phentermine dose for the obesity treatment. Obesity therapy with initial Adipex dose of 18.75 mg (Phentermine 15 mg) is recommended in minor renal and liver dysfunction. In severe renal and (or) liver failure, Adipex pills are contraindicated.
Obese people, in whom obesity is accompanied by diabetes and hypertension, are recommended to start taking obesity medication with the initial Adipex dose of 18.75 mg. Along with the reduction in weight, resulting from Adipex pills, the effects of oral antidiabetic and antihypertensive drugs increase.
So, when introducing Adipex into hypertensive or anti-diabetic therapy, it is recommended to inform your doctor about drugs that you take. Before getting a prescription for Adipex, you should also tell your doctor about all the diseases, occurring simultaneously with obesity.
If the initial Adipex dose of 18.75mg does not suppress appetite, or suppresses it insignificantly, the daily dose may be increased (Adipex 37.5mg). If the whole Adipex 37.5mg tablet (Phentermine 30 mg) intake is followed by such side effects, as nausea or dry mouth, the initial Adipex 37.5mg dose can be divided in 2 doses: half a tablet Adipex 18.75 mg (Phentermine 15 mg) in the morning and at lunch.
When taking Adipex tablets 2 times a day, it is recommended to keep up with the daily dose. The maximum Phentermine daily dose is 40 mg. Taking 2 Adipex 37.5mg tablets is equivalent to 60 mg Phentermine, which exceeds the allowable maximum dose and may cause overdosage.
In Adipex overdosage, the person experiences anxiety, tremor, difficulty in breathing, confusion, aggression, state of panic, hallucinations or hyperreflexia. Adipex overdosage also increases side effects. Strong CNS stimulation results in fatigue and depression.
Adipex overdosage is dangerous for the cardiovascular system. Excessive Adipex dose results in arrhythmia, hypertension or hypotension, cardiovascular failure. Gastrointestinal tract side effects are also amplified: nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. In some cases, Adipex intoxication can lead to seizures and coma.
Treatment of acute Adipex intoxication is symptomatic and includes gastric lavage. Clinical studies have shown that hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis do not accelerate Phentermine excretion from the body. At the same time, studies have shown that acidification of the urine may reduce Phentermine half-life to 7-8 hours.
For removing the sedation in Adipex overdosage, barbiturates (Phenobarbital) can be indicated. If acute Adipex intoxication caused severe hypertension attack, the patient can be given Phentolamine (Regitine, CIBA) intravenously.
If you have never taken Adipex but it is no longer available at your city, you can find Adipex pills in the UK online pharmacy. The retail price of Adipex on online pharmacies depends on the amount of slimming pills you decide to order.
