What is Phentermine?

Helps you lose weight. Adipex-P (phentermine) is not a first choice medicine for weight loss because it is associated with an increased risk for side effects and abuse potential. However, it can be used as a short-term treatment option if other similar medicines don't work.

Phentermine Quick Facts

Proper Use

Take this medicine only as directed by your doctor. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered. If you take too much of this medicine, it may become habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence).

This medicine is available in four forms: capsules, disintegrating tablets, extended-release capsules, and tablets. Carefully follow the dosing instructions for the form you are using.

Swallow the extended-release capsule whole. Do not crush, break, or chew it.

Take the disintegrating tablet with or without food. Make sure your hands are dry before touching the tablet. Place the tablet on the top of your tongue right after removing it from the bottle. It should melt quickly. After the tablet has melted, swallow or take a sip of water.

Swallow the tablet whole. Do not crush, break, or chew it.

Carefully follow your doctor's instructions for a reduced-calorie diet plan and regular exercise. Talk with your doctor before starting an exercise program.

To avoid trouble with sleeping, take the last dose of the day about 4 to 6 hours before bedtime, unless your doctor tells you otherwise.

Serious Side Effects

  • High blood pressure in the lungs

    Adipex-P (phentermine) can increase the blood pressure in your lungs, which can be very dangerous to your health since it can cause blood clots to form. Tell your doctor right away if you have trouble breathing, chest pain, swelling in your legs, or a lowered ability in how much you can normally exercise.

  • Potential for tolerance and abuse
      Higher risk if:
    • Using Adipex-P (phentermine) for a long period of time
    • History of drug abuse

    Your body can get used to Adipex-P (phentermine) and it can become less effective within a few weeks of using it. Taking more Adipex-P (phentermine) than what your doctor prescribed will not help you lose weight faster but will instead raise your risk of experiencing physical dependence and side effects. Also, the longer you use the medicine, the more likely you are to potentially abuse it. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you think Adipex-P (phentermine) is not working as well as before for you.

  • Worsening of heart disease
      Higher risk if:
    • History of heart problems

    Adipex-P (phentermine) can make heart disease worse and raise the risk of sudden death. Talk to your doctor about other treatment options if you currently have or have a history of an irregular heartbeat, heart failure, chest pain, heart attack, stroke, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or heart valve disease.

  • Effect on blood pressure
      Higher risk if:
    • History of high blood pressure

      Higher risk if:
    • Taking other weight loss medicines

    Don't take Adipex-P (phentermine) with other weight loss medicines (prescription, over-the-counter, or herbal products) because the combinations might not be safe or effective. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have concerns about the medicines you are taking.
