Adipex is a brand name of a well-known drug Phentermine, which has been widely used for weight loss since 1959. Adipex is among the most demanded drugs for healthy weight loss. Adipex diet pills are mostly prescribed for exogenous obesity treatment in patients older than 16. Weight loss pills Adipex are used when keeping a low-calorie diet with physical exercises.
It is recommended to take one tablet Adipex in the morning on an empty stomach or within an hour or two after the breakfast.
Adipex tablet contains 37.5 mg of Phentermine hydrochloride, which equals to 30 mg of Phentermine base. Daily dose of Adipex is adjusted individually for every patient. Sometimes, doctors prescribe half of Adipex diet tablet (18.75 mg).
For some obese people, the intake of Adipex tablet two times a day is the most effective solution for weight loss. In this case, the daily dose Adipex 37.5 mg must be divided into 2 intakes (half a tablet of Adipex 18.75 mg in the morning, the other half – Adipex 18.75 mg for lunch).
Patients must never exceed the daily dose Adipex 37.5 mg. If patient takes two or more tablets of Adipex 37.5 mg, they will not increase his weight loss, but most likely will cause him an overdosage.
Adipex overdosage occurs due to a double intake of diet tablets while the previous dose of weight loss drug has not been excreted from the body. Mostly, in Adipex overdosage side effects get worse.
Symptoms of Adipex weight loss drug overdosage are:
- Hurried breathing
- Panic state
- Mental confusion
In addition, Adipex overdosage causes physical disorders, in particular:
- tachycardia, fever, arrhythmia and high blood pressure. Adipex overdosage also affects the gastrointestinal tract: abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
- Acute overdose on Adipex provokes a severe intoxication, person has seizures and then he falls into coma.
Adipex overdosage requires a symptomatic treatment as a rule. The overdose therapy includes gastric lavage and some sedative drugs, mostly barbiturates (Amobarbital, Pentobarbital, and Phenobarbital).
According to clinical trials, hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis do not accelerate the excretion of Adipex from the body. At the same time, acidification of urine may increase Adipex excretion from the body. Clinical studies show that the acidification of urine reduces the half-life of Phentermine (Adipex) down to 7-8 hours.
Some foods can acidify the urine. However, in Adipex overdosage one wants to get a fast result. Thus, to acidify the urine doctors prescribe urological drug – Methionin AL 500.
In case Adipex overdose is accompanied by acute hypertension, person can be prescribed intravenous injection of nonselective alpha-adrenergic antagonist Phentolamine (Regitine).
Phentolamine injections expand the blood vessels, increasing the blood inflow and reducing the blood pressure. Phentolamine is usually prescribed for hypertensive crisis, caused by pheochromocytoma.
Please note that consumption of alcohol drinks, the CNS stimulants and hallucination drugs along with Adipex increase the risk of overdosage. It happens that Adipex overdosage is caused by a long-term use of slimming pills. Thus, it is recommended to use Adipex weight loss drug no more than 12 weeks.
