No: Adipex is a stimulant weight-loss medication. Any patient experiencing vision loss from this medication should immediately seek a check by your doctor. This is also important in patients who may have glaucoma. Call today and be checked out.

No: Adipex, or Phentermine has a number of very serious side effects, and loss of vision could mean that you have previously undiagnosed glaucoma, or some other condition made worse by the medication. Stop the medication and see your ophthalmologist right away.
