Would it be recommended to to take an adderral 20mg the same day as taking an adipex 37.5mg?

Would it be recommended to to take an adderral 20mg the same day as taking an adipex 37.5mg?

Be careful.: If you're taking the Adderall regularly & it's a safe &effective dose, you might tolerate the adipex, but not necessarily so. Both are stimulants. Significant negative effects would not be surprising. Further, i question the usefulness of phentiramine at all. It doesn't have sustained wgt-loss effect. & Adderall itself helps limit wgt gain. Consider a more all-day Adderall regimen + diet/fitness. ...Read more

Is it okay that i keep taking adipex?

Not forever: Medications like adipex are not meant for long term use. I think it's reasonable to set some limits - what I tell people is that they must have BMI over 30 to start the medicine then lose 5% of body weight in 8 weeks. Then I only keep them on it for 12 weeks. These meds are best used for 12 weeks then taking a break. Use those twelve weeks to get into a healthier routine. Ling term use ineffectiv ...Read more
