Adipex Pills (phentermine) is a prescription medicine similar to amphetamine. Phentermine stimulates the central nervous system (nerves and brain). Thus increases your heart rate and blood pressure and decreases your appetite.
Do not use Adipex-P if you are pregnant or breast-feeding a baby.
You should not use Adipex-P if you have a history of heart disease (coronary artery disease, heart rhythm problems, or congestive heart failure), previous stroke, severe or uncontrolled high blood pressure overactive thyroid, glaucoma, extreme agitation or nervousness, a history of drug abuse, or if you take other diet pills.
Do not use this medicine if you have used an MAO inhibitor in the past 14 days, such as isocarboxazid, linezolid, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, or tranylcypromine, or if you have received a methylene blue injection. A dangerous drug interaction could occur.
Rare cases of a condition called pulmonary hypertension as well as heart valve disease have been reported in patients taking Adipex-P. Stop Adipex-P immediately if you develop difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. Also stop for feelings of light headedness like you might faint, swelling in your legs, chest pain, or fast heartbeat.
