It is not new to us that many people may not be the person they want to be. It may be because they have diseases that prevent them so such as obesity.
Obesity is a condition that affects humans despite age, race, color, and ethnicity. It is when your body consumes more calories than it can burn that can lead you to this condition. It can be attributed to the modern lifestyle that is too dependent on modern-day convenience and ever-increasing food choices many of them contain too much of the calories that the body needs.
With the advancement of information technology, it is now easier to be tempted by food and overeat just as it is now easier to gain access to information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The person can either be tempted to overeat and suffer obesity issues or the person can be a fitness buff and an inspiration to others. For most individuals gaining weight is easier but to undo the process by losing what you have gained is a very difficult and heinous task.
Over the years, medical science has developed products that can help people achieve the stereotypical perfect body by reducing your weight. One of these is weight loss pills.
What is Adipex and why is it so Famous?
Adipex is used as a short-term obesity treatment that suppresses the appetite of a person and prepares the body for tolerating any form of vigorous exercise for workouts. These two (2) aspects are essential to weight reduction supplemented with if supplemented with proper eating habits, exercise, and the right attitude. It is for people with a body mass index between 27-30 kg/m.
Adipex affects the brain directly and purposely approaches one of the most vital parts that manage the responses of the brain, the hypothalamus.
The problem of excessive eating may be caused by emotional difficulties in a person’s life or just out of plain habit. Different persons may have various reasons for indulging in excessive eating but usually, it boils down to the same problem.
The habit may be hard to stop but can be put under control by using the Adipex medication that acts straight to the brain’s appetite-controlling unit and averts the person’s cravings by annihilating the excess appetite. This design makes Adipex pills quite useful in controlling the person’s food cravings and consequently a major factor in keeping track of one’s weight.
The list of side effects of Adipex is long
It has been warned that people with the following medical conditions should not take Adipex: those who are pregnant or nursing, with a history of cardiovascular disease, drug abuse, overactive thyroid, glaucoma, hypersensitivity to stimulants, agitation, and those who have used a monoamine oxidase inhibitor drug within the last fortnight.
As with any medicine or if not taken properly, it can lead to serious side effects such as difficulty in breathing, irregular heartbeat, abnormal behavior, hallucinations, high blood pressure, allergic reactions, and/or insomnia.
Less serious side effects are fever, headache, constipation, diarrhea, hyperacidity, restlessness, dry mouth, and/or sexual problems.
Long term therapy with Adipex can lead to undeviating alterations in the inner lining of the heart and the blood vessels of the lungs. These alterations can cause irregular execution of the heart valves.
Knowledge of any possible side effects is essential and any decline in forbearance for exercise should be immediately reported. Treatment will need to be dropped if new, baffling symptoms like chest pain, episodes of oblivion or unconsciousness, difficulty in breathing, or swelling of the lower limb should occur. Adipex must be avoided in people with existing defects in blood flow through the lungs and abnormally functioning heart valves.
Signs of insomnia, hyperactivity, irritability, personality changes should also be monitored regularly.
Insomnia occurs because of the chemicals present in the pill that may influence certain parts of the brain that are accountable or responsible for making a person fall asleep. Because of the chemical imbalance in the brain, excessive fatigue and drowsiness throughout the day may occur because of a lack of sleep.
The sudden stop of the use of phentermine for a long period of time may also result in mental depression, extreme fatigue, and changes in sleep patterns.
If overdosed, phentermine may result in tremor, aggressiveness, restlessness, hallucinations, confusion, panic states, and rapid respiration. Irregular heartbeats, circulatory collapse, and hypertension may also occur.
Nausea, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and vomiting are gastrointestinal-related effects that may happen if one gets overdosed. Depression and fatigue usually follow this state of over-stimulation.
Constipation occurs because phentermine can distress certain receptors in the gastrointestinal tract that may cause swelling, which will then result in constipation. Related effects can occur when having constipation such as severe stomach pain, nausea, and difficulty moving bowels.
On the other hand, hypertension may result for reasons that the chemical composition in phentermine can cause attenuation of the blood vessels in the lungs. If blood vessels decrease in size, it restricts normal blood circulation while forcing a backflow of blood to the lungs and heart. The person will experience shortness of breath and chest pain. Chest pain is only a possibility depending on the level of hypertension the person is experiencing.
Also, lethal poisoning usually terminates in coma and convulsions.
If suspected overdose might occur, seek medical attention immediately. Depending on the rigorousness of the reaction, sedation, admission for observation, and intravenous therapy for the elevated blood pressure may be required for the patient.
After reading a lot of testimonials from people, the list of side effects can be shortened through the following information:
Phentermine, the generic name that is marketed under the trade name Adipex, produces nervous system stimulation, which may result in anxiety, tremor, restlessness, nervousness, insomnia, increased dreaming, euphoria, depression, fatigue, dizziness, headache, and dysphoria.
The effects on cardiovascular may be connected with phentermine. It usually causes a considerable rise in heart rate. Arrhythmias and hypertension may also occur. Valvular heart disease has also been reported in patients taking phentermine.
Effects such as weakness and changes in sexual behavior may occur in phentermine-taking patients.
Effects such as diarrhea, dryness of the mouth, constipation, and unpleasant taste may occur when taking in phentermine.
The side effects listed above can range from mild to severe and are extremely dependent on many factors. Therefore, the use of these kinds of medications is not highly recommended.
In general, any presence of diet pills in anyone’s body for a long period of time will have negative effects that can last much longer than the positive ones. Thus make sure to use with precaution and be ready for the consequences it may bring. After all, no one’s perfect, so why try to be?
