What other diet meds are as effective as adipex?

Wishful thinking. Hi over the long haul of bariatric meds, Phentermine (generic of adipex) still sems to work the best in my opinion. But, and a big but--no pun intended. I believe only a physician who specializes in weight loss and has taken special medical education re: weight loss meds should be prescribing for these meds. I do wish more meds would be appoved by the fda. I have lots to say about lack of wt med.
