Severe tension headaches
Hi, I was just wondering, went to the er b/c of having what I thought were tension headaches (been on adipex for 5 weeks)I was told it was muscle spasms in my neck most likely for working out too much to soon, so I was told no exercise for a few days, today however my 3 yr old had me stressed and I noticed my back of my head was starting to hurt again (muscle spasms) I cant help but wonder if this is not muscle spasms but rather the adipex increasing my blood pressure or pulse causing what felt like a tension headache, even though my bp has been 117/77 should I consider weaning off the adipex? The product worked well I have lost 20 lbs, concerned about the back of my neck hurting!
AskDocWeb: When headaches become severe that is a warning sign of something that may be serious. The patient data for Adipex says that severe headaches should be reported to your doctor.
Adipex isn't working
I feel like adipex isn't working this time. I used years ago and I didn't want to eat I had so much energy. This time I stopped taking my adderall so I could take the adipex but I feel like its not working I'm very upset about this and advice?
AskDocWeb: One of the problems with many diet drugs is that the body builds up a tolerance for them and they lose effectiveness. That's one of the reasons why they are prescribed for short-term use. For advice check with your doctor to find out what he or she thinks might work best for you.
Extreme dry mouth
Hello everyone, I was recently just about to have gastric bypass surgery (due of course to an extremely high BMI) then the gantlet came down... I was diagnosed with CROHNS DISEASE, so of course the surgery was canceled, but in the meantime until that's under control, my DOC put me on adipex, and I must say... I LOVE IT.
In a month and a half I'm down 25pds, I feel awesome, I have more energy, and I see the results already with my body. Just one side effect that I hate a lot, is EXTREMELY dry mouth I mean to the point I can't barely talk my mouth is like cotton. I drink lots of h20 and chew gum and use biotene!!! I give this adipex 2 thumbs up. Good luck to everyone.
Today is my 3rd day on addipex and I have not slept the last 2 nights. I never have a problem sleeping. I love the decreased appetite and I feel better already, except for the heavy weight on my chest too. I don't smoke either. My dr recommended taking every other day. Hopefully that helps.
Is this safe with Adipex?
I have been taking apidex for about a week and noticed my food cravings went down. I have more energy and i sleep ALOT less. I still feel a little tired thru the day though but can't seem to sit still. I am on an iud, mirana, and i haven't had a period for several months until i started the apidex pill, i noticed spotting and back cramps (which back cramps are normal for me when cycling) im also a smoker. About a pack every 2 days. Is this all safe with taking the apidex pill?
AskDocWeb: Hello Samantha, welcome. You have likely heard a great deal about the hazards of smoking but since you asked, no, it is not safe. Smoking while on Adipex increases the risk of side effects such as shortness of breath and other respiratory problems, back pain, and cerebrovascular events.
Sex drive increased
Someone mentioned that it is hard to get an erection on Adipex. I beg to differ. If anything my sex drive has increased. In fact, because of the weight loss (50 lbs in 2 months) and lower blood pressure, my wife and I have noticed that my penis is significantly larger than it was. I've been on it for 2 months, losing weight, and sexual function is more than satisfactory. I would warn that the first week taking it, in my experience, my sex drive was in full beast mode. (that could be bad for certain people)
Adipex is like Spanish fly
One guy here says adipex makes it difficult to get erection. I am female and I want to say I am having the opposite affect and its driving me crazy. Husband isn't here and I have to self sooth. This is like Spanish fly that works all too well. I have to stay home a lot.
I took it for 4 months and lost 35lbs. but everytime i skipped a dose i would have a burning sensation in my bladder and pelvic area. I thought it was a bladder infection. Come to find out , I had an abscess on my right tube and ovary caused from colon cancer perforating my large intestine. @ surgery's later and 6 months of chemo later, i will probaly take it again to manage my weight gain.
