After cancer treatment, chemo and radiation, I began to suffer with fatigue and depression and weight gain. My internist put me on 37.5mgs of Adipex. I really helped. But I recently learned I had developed Cardiomyopathy most likely due to radiation. My heart specialist wanted me to stop the Adipex. I began taking 1/2 a pill a day for a week and then I stopped. I feel lightheaded and extremely tired. How long will it take for my body to rid itself of the effects of the drug. Will I ever get over the fatigue and lightheadedness???
