How safe is adipex? Do I have to go to a gp to get a prescription for it, or could I go to my gynecologist?

In brief: Safe short term use

Adipex is an appetite suppressant that has been found to be safe for short term use for weight loss in obese and overweight individuals.
It should also be used only in conjunction with daily exercise and proper eating. Lastly, make sure all of your doctors are aware you will be taking this just to confirm you don't have a medical conditions or take medications that contradict its use.
