  • I am currently taking the generic form of apidex...Phentermine (sp??) I LOVE it...I've been on it now for a little over a week and have lost 9 lbs...granted I am exercising my butt off and eating according to plan. There are 2 side effects for me...I can't go to sleep until after midnight and I have a dry mouth...ALL the time. Which is good...I drink plenty of water!! GOODLUCK!!

  • I was on it for 2 months and lost about 25 lbs. I recently got off of it and have started gaining weight back. If you dont keep up the exercise and the healthy eating you will gain it back. I also had very bad side effects. Couldnt sleep, dry mouth, real jittery, Almost every night I only had an hour or two of sleep because of the medicine. I wouldnt recommend anyone taking it. It is very strong.

  • Does your Doc have to prescribe it?
