I have been on adipex for 2 weeks now. I am having dry mouth, no energy, and just feel sleepy. I quit the adipex today and now i feel like im about to pass out again and i have a terrible headache. Should i be concerned?
Hi all of the symptoms you describe are known potential side effects of taking Adipex. The fact that you feel like passing out now that you have discontinued them abruptly, could be due to CNS involvement or maybe hypotension(?)... this should rectify itself very quickly, so try not to be too concerned. If it continues speak with your doctor, but i really don't think it is anything to worry about long term
Take things very slowly and push water to help build up those blood cells. No quick movements or sitting up quickly until you get yourself grounded and centered before standing up. Low potassium can cause this issue, too. Stopping medications abruptly can have these unwanted side effects. If they don't correct in a few days, I would contact your doctor's office. They should be made aware that this med wasn't agreeing with you and you stopped it.
Be safe, be well and take good care of yourself.
