How to Identify Adipex-P
Adipex-P is a brand of Phentermine, a stimulant drug approved by the Food and Drug administration (FDA). Adipex-P can be used for up to twelve weeks for treating and improving cases of obesity in adults. Adipex-P brand name has been designed to help adults achieve a healthy dietary balance leading to weight loss. Adipex-P is just one brand of Phentermine. Brand name Adipex-P and its generic name Phentermine, has been approved by the FDA for several decades. Each manufacturer may use its own brand name for Phentermine. There are several brands of Phentermine produced by many different manufactures. Adipex-P can be taken at different moments of the day and works to suppress appetite and reduce hunger cravings in adults. Adults choosing to use Adipex-P tablets should inform their doctors that they are trying to lose weight with an appetite suppressant.
Adipex-P is usually taken in the form of a tablet rather than a capsule. Adipex-P is elliptical in shape, and its coloring is white with blue specks. The blue specks on the tablet do not interfere with the effectiveness of Adipex-P as they consist of coloring agent FD&C Blue No. 1. The coloring is included in order to differentiate the tablets from other brands. Adipex-P is also available in capsule form and in varying dosages. The active ingredients in Adipex-P are metabolism stimulating and act as a diet aid for obese adults working to lose weight. Inactive ingredients include: sucrose, cornstarch, magnesium stearate, lactose anhydrous, and microcrystalline cellulose.
The use of Adipex-P is primarily for obese adults seriously working to lose weight with a body mass index (BMI) of over 30. Adipex-P can also be used to treat normal weight adults with a BMI lower than 30 who want to suppress appetite for dietary purposes. Adipex-P should be taken when food cravings emerge in order to prevent caloric intake. Adipex-P tablets work best on adults who are already trying to reduce caloric intake. Adults who are seriously focused on achieving a lower weight and body fat level should use Adipex-P in tandem with their diet and exercise regime.
How to Identify Ionamin
Ionamin is a brand name drug designed as a weight loss supplement using a blend of two main ingredients. The ingredients consist of a blend of two products that are both designed for achieving optimal weight loss for men and women. The first ingredient is a simple generic version of Phentermine and the second ingredient is a supplement called Ionamin OTC. The blend of each product was brought together and developed as the Ionamin brand name in order to provide the most effective supplement for dieting.
The first ingredient in the Ionamin brand name is Phentermine. Phentermine is a drug that has been approved by the FDA for decades and is marketed by Caltech Pharmaceuticals. Phentermine is dispensed in bottles with capsules that are available in two doses, a 15 mg dosage and a 30 mg dosage. The 15 mg capsule is orange and grey, while the 30 mg capsule is orange. The capsule coloring is used to distinguish the 15 mg dosage (orange and grey), from the 30 mg dosage (orange). Phentermine is an effective appetite suppressant, and is most practical for treating obesity in adults to normalize overeating patterns.
The second product marketed under the brand name Ionamin is an OTC supplement produced by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals. The manufacturer calls it Ionamin or Ionamin OTC, and claims that it is more effective than supplements such as ephedrine. They claim that Ionamin OTC can cause a metabolism increase of up to 66 percent within 20 minutes of ingestion. Hi-Tech claims that their explotab formula simply increases the amount of the drug that is absorbed by causing the tablet granules to expand.
In tandem these two weight loss products marketed under the brand name Ionamin can help obese adults with a body mass index (BMI) of over 30 to achieve the possibility for weight loss. The explotab formula improves the amount of Ionamin OTC drug being absorbed, while Phentermine works suppressing the appetite of those adults who are trying to reduce their caloric intake. Combined, the Ionamin brand consists of two already effective diet suppressants, and becomes one of the most effective diet supplements on the market.
How to Identify Qsymia
Qsymia is a mixture of Phentermine with Topiramate produced by Vivus Pharmaceutricals. It is dispensed in capsule form with a mixture of Phentermine and extended release Topiramate. Qsymia is intended for individuals who are suffering from obesity, defined as a body mass index above 30. Phentermine is a prescription weight loss medication that works by causing your hunger levels to drop through a “fight or flight” reaction. Meanwhile, Topiramate is an anticonvulsant that was prescribed to patients who suffered from epileptic seizures or headaches. It was also prescribed by many doctors for weight loss although this was an unapproved off-label use. Then Vivus Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: VVUS) decided to combine these two drugs in an attempt to produce a drug that could be approved by the FDA. Vivus claims that Qsymia is more effective than Phentermine alone.
Each dosage level of Qsymia contains adjusted amounts of both of its active ingredients, and the color of the capsules varies by dosage. The two most common dosages are: 1) 7.5 mg Phentermine with 46 mg topiramate (purple and yellow capsule); 2) 15 mg Phentermine with 92 mg topiramate (white and yellow capsule).
The capsules are typically sold in bottles with a label that differs in color depending on the dosage. The 7.5 mg / 46 mg Qsymia is sold in a label with purple markings while the 15 mg / 92 mg dose is sold in a bottle with yellow markings. However, you cannot legally purchase Qsymia or indeed Phentermine without a prescription, so it is possible that the bottle may come with a prescription label that covers the manufacturer’s label on the bottle.
Vivus Pharmaceuticals had a difficult time getting this drug approved due to its potential for side effects. The FDA only approved Qsymia after comparing its potential side effects to the detrimental effects of obesity. This means that the concerns that had led the agency to delay its approval remain. Furthermore, the concerns that many physicians have about Qsymia have led to relatively low sales for the company, which at this time has a stock price of less than $2. Undoubtedly, these relatively low sales figures are partly due to the suspicion many doctors have about this drug.
How to Identify Alli
Alli is the brand name used for the generic drug called Orlistat. Orlistat is the generic name used by the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) pharmaceutical company. Orlistat is approved by the FDA and available as a weight loss drug for sale over the counter. Alli is intended to be taken with each meal in combination with a diet reduced in calories. One capsule is supposed to be taken with each meal. No more than three capsules are supposed to be taken in a day. Alli capsules are turquoise blue in color with a blue band in the middle of each capsule.
It is important to be aware of the look of Ali capsules because the GSK company itself notifies the public that there are packages of Alli that have been tampered with, where the medication has been changed despite the packaging looking the same. If the foil seal inside of the bottle has been broken, then it is possible that you do not have authentic Alli but rather an adulterated product in a Alli bottle. This is one of the reasons buyers should be cautious about taking Alli – as the tendency for tampered Alli available in the market has been high. What has been available for purchase may be something else entirely. This problem is also found in online pharmacies that specialize in the illegal sale of drugs such as Phentermine.
The manufacturer says that Alli should only be taken by people with a body mass index of 25 of higher. Alli works by absorbing about twenty-five percent of the fat that is consumed with any given meal. If users of Alli do not adhere to a diet that is much lower in calories than what they normally consume, then Alli’s benefits are going to be greatly reduced. Users of Alli should significantly curb their caloric intake, or the side effects of Alli become more pronounced. Successful use of Alli involves significantly reducing caloric intake. In order to help reduce caloric intake, the company has provided on their website different recipes for people who are currently using Alli. The company recommends Alli users to follow their recipes in order to enhance the effects of the drug, and to reduce the possibility for adverse side effects associated with an increased caloric intake while using the drug.
How to Identify Duromine
Duromine is a brand of Phentermine that is manufactured by 3M corporation and marketed primarily in Australia. However, consumers may find the Phentermine generic product described occasionally as the Duromine brand name in the United States. Regardless of its brand name however, all forms of Phentermine are chemically identical and will have a valid effect of suppressing hunger and food cravings.
The Duromine brand is unique and available in three different dosages. Each dosage of Duromine is sold in a sealed aluminum foil blister pack and available in capsule form. The different dosages of Duromine are distinguished by color and packaging. For example, Duromine 30mg is in a red and grey capsule that is sold in a blister pack that says “Duromine Appetite Control” and then lists the dosage of Phentermine that is included in the package. The packaging for Duromine is arguably geared towards marketing to the consumer more than other brands of Phentermine. One reason for this is that Duromine is one of the only Phentermine brands available for the market in Australia, enabling its manufacturer to up-sell the product. Duromine brand is becoming more commercially available to consumers from the United States.
Duromine works like many other Phentermine name brands by acting as an appetite suppressant for adults with a body mass index (BMI) of over 30. Duromine brand name is also an effective appetite suppressant for normal weight adults working to achieve lower levels of body fat. The Duromine brand name is most impressive for treating obesity when combined with a diet reduced in calories and a disciplined exercise regime. Users of Duromine have benefitted the most from using the dosages by taking the capsules when feeling hungry or when feeling like consuming food. It is practical if users of Duromine band take capsules along with consuming a large amount of water to further suppress appetite. Duromine is more easily absorbed by the body when users achieve a healthy level of hydration. Once absorbed, the potent appetite inhibitors work to affect the dietary signaling in the body so the user no longer suffers from uncontrollable food cravings. This allows the user to achieve their diet goals.
