Adipex-P Dosage and Administration
Dosage should be individualized to obtain an adequate response with the lowest effective dose.
The usual adult dose is one capsule or tablet (37.5 mg) daily, administered before breakfast or 1-2 hours after breakfast. For tablets, the dosage may be adjusted to the patient’s need. For some patients ½ tablet (18.75 mg) daily may be adequate, while in some cases it may be desirable to give ½ tablet (18.75 mg) two times a day.
Late evening medication should be avoided because of the possibility of resulting insomnia.
Phentermine is not recommended for use in patients sixteen (16) years of age and under.
The doc/pharmacist who has prescribed the med shall be the best person to decide the dosage as he/she would know the medical history of the patient, hope the info helps?
