Should I Take Adipex Diet Pills?
I was wondering if it was best to take a multi-vitamin, B12 shot, and fluid pill with adipex diet pills? If I am changing my diet to healthy foods and exercising a lot to burn off more calories than I take in. Also will I be able to not only lose the weight quickly, but maintain a toned body instead of having excess skin? Thanks so much for your time.....I appreciate the advice!
Thanks for your question. I do not advise patients to take B12 shots or fluid pills unless they are prescribed by an MD. Below is some information on Adipex. While this is typically a prescribed appetite suppressant for weight loss, apparently you can buy it over-the-counter. It can be habit forming and is not to be used by certain individuals. I believe diet and regular/consistent exercise is the safest and most effective method for long term weight loss.
