As you learn more about your prescription diet pill, you’ll likely discover that it isn’t at all rare to experience Adipex side effects during its use, particularly during the first few days. The good news is that they are typically rather mild and many of them will gradually subside over the first days that you are using it. Often, after the first week, patients will discover that they aren’t suffering from any unpleasant symptoms at all, as their bodies will have adapted to the changes that are caused by the drug.
That said, it is still important to know the Adipex side effects and the different levels of symptoms that they can cause. This is because each level will require you to take a different kind of action in order to deal with them.
For example, if the Adipex side effects that you are experiencing are a form of allergic reaction, then it is very important for you to contact emergency medical personnel in order to obtain immediate assistance. Even a reaction that appears to be mild at the start can rapidly develop into something that is much more problematic and dangerous. In these cases, it is far better to be safe than sorry. Allergic reaction symptoms can include a skin rash such as hives, swelling in the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or breathing difficulties.
There is a very low risk of experiencing severe Adipex side effects. If you should find that you are experiencing any of the following, it is important that you contact emergency medical professionals and/or your doctor immediately. You could be in urgent need of assistance:
• Dangerously high blood pressure
• A pounding or “fluttering” feeling heartbeat
• Chest pain
• Fainting or feeling as though you may pass out
• Shortness of breath resulting from mild exertion
• Extreme happiness or sadness
• Confusion, unusual behaviors or thoughts, or irritability
• Swelling in the ankles and feet.
The more common Adipex side effects are those that are much less severe. The following likely will not need emergency medical assistance, but you should still bring them up with your doctor so that they can be discussed:
• Hyperactive or restless feelings
• Dizziness, tremors, or headache
• Dry mouth or an unpleasant taste in the mouth
• Diarrhea or constipation
• Impotence or libido changes
Other Adipex side effects could also occur. Pay close attention to the way that you feel and report any changes to your doctor.
