Despite being overweight, because I am not morbidly obese my doctor does not want to prescribe this medicine, how can I find a doctor that will
Hello Mikey98c. Adipex is meant to be used only for the short term. (from two to three weeks) The side effects if used any longer are and can be very serious. Heart, blood pressure for example. Doctors because of the high risk(s) are reluctant to perscribe the drug. You might ask a chemist/pharmacist. Regards pledge
This drug isn't to be taken lightly. Any doc can prescribe, but alot won't, because of the dangerous side effects. A competent dr won't prescribe it for someone who isn't grossly overweight.
