  • Adipex can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Avoid drinking alcohol. It can increase some of the side effects of Adipex. Adipex may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Keep track of how many pills have been used from each new bottle of this medicine. Adipex is a drug of abuse and you should be aware if any person in the household is using this medicine improperly or without a prescription.

    You may have withdrawal symptoms, such as depression and extreme tiredness, when you stop using Adipex after using it over a long period of time. Do not stop using Adipex suddenly without first talking to your doctor. You may need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely.

  • Found that above online. Generally...weight loss supplements whittle nothing but WALLETS. No substitute for eating right and being active. No shortcuts, either. Nine months on nine months off.

    Weight Watchers is as close to a shortcut as you get.
