Could these pills be fake?
I have used Adipex on and off for a couple years. I lost 100 lbs within my first 6 months of Adipex. Eventually the weight started coming back (20 lbs so far). I tried Adipex again and it didn't help at all.. So this last month I tried Didrex and it did pretty much nothing besides give me a little boost.. Could this have something to do with where I am getting the pills? When I lost all the weight I was getting a paper Rx for the Adipex. The later Adipex and the Didrex came from a Weight Loss Clinic where they have the pills in-office. Could these pills be fake?!
AskDocWeb: The possibility that a clinic would be handing out fake pills exists but it is highly unlikely. Didrex tablets have the name of the drug stamped on one side with a number under the name indicating the dosage in milligrams. The other side is scored with a groove to make splitting them easier. If you have doubts you could show the medication to a pharmacist to see what they think.
Didrex is addictive
I have been taking Didrex for more than 15yrs and am severly addicted and mentally ill. I cant seem to break this addiction. It has virtually made me a desert island; due to wild irrational behavior that chases away all family and friends. I have been institutionalized more than 20 times due to schizophrantic & embarassing Public scenes; which I know is related to my addiction to Didrex. I would not recommend this to my worst enemy!!!Please help me to find a rehab to overcome this dangerous drug. This drug is so addictive more than Heroine.
WATER is the Key
Some of these reviews are "Full Of Sh*t"! Everyone has their own experience with Didrex. These people have no Self-Control. I'm 5'4 and I was 180. I've lost 60 pounds and gained 10 pounds of muscle by working out. If you want to do anything in life, all you have to do is DO IT! It took 2 months, with the help of Didrex and WATER!!!!! WATER is the Key for Flushing your system. GOD have US choice! You choose to be a Junkie or Not!
Having used direx for weight loss I have found it one of the most effective and usefull of the weight loss drugs.
Can I cut Didrex in half?
My Dr. put me on three, 50 mg Didrex every day. Since they are scored, is it safe to cut them in half? I don't want to take that much.
AskDocWeb: The purpose of the score grove is to make it easier to split the pills. Whether or not that would be appropriate for your particular situation is something you need to discuss with your physician.
Didrex very addictive
I have been taking didrex on and off for about 7 years now, and I can tell you it's a very addictive drug. Everyone should be aware of this. I personally think it's to easy to get, there should be a certain weight you have to be before it's prescribed to anyone. I have never been more then 15 pounds over weight an I have never had a problem getting them.
Taking more than recommended is a mistake
I was just reading some stories online about Didrex. I am currently taking this medication for obesity. I take it as prescribe and have not encountered any of the effects that I am reading online. The medication tells you it is habitat forming and take as prescribed for 8-12 weeks, I am reading that people have been taking them for many years. Is it Didrex fault or your own careless mistake by taking more than recommended. Too much of anything can be harmful. Even water!
AskDocWeb: Ditto Penny, well said!
My chest feels funny
I recently started taking Didrex under the supervision of a doctor at a weight loss clinic. I only take 25mg per day, but it makes my chest feel funny. I feel like i need to cough all the time. Has anyone else experienced this?
AskDocWeb: It is general a good idea to discuss any unusual side effects with your doctor. Some patients have reported heart palpitations while using Didrex.
Didrex for depression
I have Didrex for YEARS. I began using it as a weight loss drug and that worked for the most part. My GP now prescribes it for depression and I have never had a single side effect. Plain and simple it does whatever to whatever in my brain to make me be the real me... does that make sense? My only dislike is that my insurance doesn't cover it because it's labled a weight loss drug and not intended for mental health issues which is indeed what I use it for. I do not believe I am addicted to it in any way - there have been times when I could not afford it for months at a time and my only sympton was return to depression. For me depression is where I exhibit all of the negative emotions --- you know, "the sad mean grumpy bitch from hell". So in my opinion, hail to Didrex/Benzphetmine, the best thing that ever happened to me!
Didrex made me crazy
Started taking this med 11 months ago I am in recovery this media bad! It has made me crazy! If u have a past drug problem or an y type of mental illness like bipolar u should not take this drug I am actually ta tapering off it as for it has made me delusional lost 40 pounds but not worth what it does to it brain.
Switching to didrex
I have built up tolerance for adipex. I am now switching to didrex, will it still work even though I have adipex tolerance my doctor assures me it will.
AskDocWeb: Although those both "diet drugs" they are different chemically and work in different ways. Good luck!
I have allergies to caffein stuff like excederin migrain pill or anything has caffein or anything that cause fast heart rate, if I take it I get very fast heart rate and problem breathing, hypertension so i end up in ER always because cant breath. My doctor gave me this pill to take for wieght losss I am realy worried after reading some of this comments. Should I take it???? or it will cause my allergy reaction
AskDocWeb: Aside from taking it there is no way to tell unless you consult with an allergist.
Didrex has ruined my life. The side effects have been horrible. I would advise for no one to even try didrex.
Good results so far
Started on Didrex 1 week ago and I've already loss 7 pounds! The only side effect I have is insomnia. So, I've omitted the last pill & take something to help me sleep through the night. I don't obsess over food anymore, so I'm hopeful that I can shed the additional 25 pounds I need to lose.
AskDocWeb: Good luck Vanessa!
