Adipex is a powerful appetite suppressant that can help you lose weight by decreasing cravings and hunger, while stimulating metabolism. It is probably the most commonly prescribed weight loss medication world-wide and is available in a generic (phentermine). This makes it one of the most cost-attractive options. JourneyLite Physicians has been utilizing this medication with great success for well over a decade, in both surgical and medical weight loss patients. Patients are eligible to stay on Adipex for up to 12 months as long as they lose at least 5% of their total body weight within the first 3 months. Although Adipex is a stimulant medication and can have side effects, it does not usually cause nausea, reflux, or constipation like the injectable GLP-1 medications.
If you want to get started on Adipex, or if you have questions about the medication, just fill out an appointment request and one of our Patient Service Representatives will contact you to answer all your questions!
