Not recommended: Adipex is no longer marketed in the usa. It increases release of norepinephrine and Dopamine from their terminals and inhibits their reuptake. Effexor (venlafaxine) inhbits reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine. Combining the 2 could cause confusion, increased blood pressure or heart rate, loss of coordination, restlessness, sweating, tremor, vomiting, and other serious side effects. Please don't.
