A member asked:

Are the drugs tenuate and adipex similar?

7 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

They are similar: Adipex is the brand name for Phentermine and tenuate is the brand for diethylpropion. They are both sympathomimetic appetite suppressants and work in similar ways. Some people do better on one or the other, so it is good to have a choice. Your doctor can help you decide which is best for you.

Yes and No: Both appetite control medications. Both controlled prescription drugs. Both should only be used under the close supervision of a qualified physician specialist in obesity treatment.
