In brief: Stimulant

Adipex is a stimulant and could cause similar symptoms to what you experienced with ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate).
It is a controlled substance, and legally is only available by prescription. Please discuss all medications you're using -- or even thinking of using -- with your physician. If it's weight loss you want, there are safer ways for you to accomplish that.
