What is ADIPEX?

ADIPEX-P is the trade name of phentermine, an appetite suppressant for weight loss. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved this medication for those with a body mass index (BMI) over 30, a body fat percentage over 30%, or a diagnosis of morbid obesity.

ADIPEX works by reducing your hunger cravings, so you eat less and can follow through with a healthy, low-calorie diet. The team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss prescribes ADIPEX as part of their weight-loss program and uses it in combination with lipotropic injections, hydration, and a daily exercise regimen.


What can I expect when taking ADIPEX?

ADIPEX is a psychostimulant that can increase your energy and focus in addition to reducing your appetite. The medication is highly effective at supporting safe, healthy weight loss under medical supervision.


To further reduce your risk for side effects from ADIPEX, you need to stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the day. Water also is a key component of successful weight loss, as it flushes out excess sodium and toxins from your body.


Am I a candidate for ADIPEX?

By reviewing your medical history and performing a physical exam, the team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss can determine if you're a candidate for ADIPEX as part of your weight-loss program.

You may not be able to take ADIPEX if you’re over 65 or have underlying health issues like:

  • An arrhythmia
  • Heart disease 
  • Heart valve problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Obesity hypoventilation syndrome
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Because ADIPEX is a stimulant, it can increase your heart rate and lead to additional health complications.


How long do I need to take ADIPEX?

Everyone loses weight differently. ADIPEX is only meant for short-term use, so after you lose enough weight to have a BMI under 30, you will no longer need to take the medication. Instead, your provider can work with you on a body transformation plan of diet and exercise to help you maintain a healthy weight and gain muscle.

To find out if you’re a candidate for ADIPEX, call NuvidaRx Weight Loss or request a consultation through the online booking system today.
