Adipex dangers are a very serious issue, and as such more and more people are opting for natural weight loss alternatives to avoid the many potential side effects of this and other prescription weight loss drugs.

Although Adipex can help you lose weight, the strong potential for adverse health effects can make it an unwise choice for shedding unwanted pounds.

What is Adipex and what are the side effects?

One of the first anti-obesity pills, it is one of a class of drugs called anorexigenics which act on the central nervous system.

Adipex works by chemically suppressing the appetite and is prescribed to people who cannot lose weight through conventional means such as regular exercise and typical diet programs.

However, there are many Adipex dangers that you should be aware of before you decide to take this drug. Adipex side effects can be quite significant, and as such it is not right for everyone.

First of all, you should not take Adipex if you have a history of heart disease or high blood pressure, as it can cause irregular heartbeat or high blood pressure.

If you have any issues with your thyroid, anxiety disorder, diabetes or seizures, then Adipex dangers are enhanced and you should steer clear.

Some of the other possible Adipex side effects are allergic reactions and difficulty breathing as well as hallucinations, confusion and abnormal behavior.

Another possible Adipex danger is addiction, as you can become physically dependent on the drug and could go through serious withdrawal if you stop taking it.

Nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, impotence and sexual dysfunction, restlessness and tremors are some of the more common Adipex side effects.

Adipex can have some long term effects on your health as well, and the FDA warns that it should not be taken for more than three months... long term safety of taking this drug is unknown, another cause for concern.

So you can see that Adipex dangers are quite significant, and can cause serious health problems. Yes, you will probably lose some weight by taking this drug... but at what cost?

That's why a natural alternative to Adipex might make sense for you. Natural weight loss supplements can help you lose significant weight without the potential side effects of Adipex and other prescription diet pills.

Hello,

Adipex can have some long term effects on your health as well, and the FDA warns that it should not be taken for more than three months... long term safety of taking this drug is unknown, another cause for concern.

Adipex danger is addiction, as you can become physically dependent on the drug and could go through serious withdrawal if you stop taking it.

Consult with your doctor prior to stopping Adipex. Adipex withdrawal symptoms can be enhanced by other medication you are taking or past medical issues that your Doctor should be aware of. Extreme danger can occur if you embark on this process alone.

Also ask your Doctor about withdrawal symptoms.

All the best.-
