In brief: 1 RX, 1 OTC

Apidexin is otc (over-the-counter) & not prescription and can be bought over the internet at a discount.
Phentermine is a prescription (rx) from a physician. A good article about the claims of otc weight loss pills is on http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/weight-loss/my00432. There is minimal data on these supplements. No recalls noted on consumerlab.Com.
