What is Adipex-75 and what is it used for?
Adipex-75 is a medicine (anorectic) that suppresses excessive appetite. It suppresses the feeling of hunger, making it easier to follow dietary restrictions and lose weight. The active substance Phenterminum resinatum is combined in the form of polystyrene sulfonate, from which it is gradually released into the body. The slow release of the active substance leads to a continuous anorectic effect for at least 8 hours. Adipex-75 is intended as an adjunctive treatment for patients with obesity in whom a reduction diet alone is insufficient to reduce body weight.
Usually 1 capsule is taken daily with breakfast. The product should not be taken in the evening, as the active ingredient may cause irritability and insomnia.
Duration of treatment
Treatment usually lasts 4-6 weeks and should not exceed 3 months. If further treatment is scheduled, it can be repeated only after the duration of treatment has been interrupted. While taking Adipex-75, you should follow the diet recommended by your doctor and increase physical activity. Weight loss is greater if low-calorie foods are consumed and consumption of foods containing fats and carbohydrates is limited. You should follow a low-calorie diet for the next 6 weeks after treatment.
