There is no big difference between Adipex and Phentermine. The little difference between the two types of drugs is that Phentermine is just like a generic name drug like Adipex, while Adipex is just a brand name under Phentermine. Phentermine is an older drug compared to Adipex. Both are used by patients who want to lose their weight. However, Phentermine is mostly prescribed by doctors to patients. Both types of drugs contain a substance called phentermine hydrochloride. This substance works by suppressing the appetite level in a person, that is why they are called appetite suppressant drugs.
When these two drugs are prescribed to you, you would still be advised to be engaging yourself in some exercises to fasten the process of weight loss. While Adipex contains phentermine hydrochloride, other brands of Phentermine are not made with the same composition as Adipex since they are manufactured by different companies.

Adipexs and Phentermines are both prescribed as weight loss drugs. The difference between them is that phentermines is a generic version of adipexs. Though it is generic, it is still the most common prescribed drug for weight loss.
Phentermines has been around since 1959 and it is the first diet pill that the FDA approved of. Phentermines comes in a variety of pill strengths, while apidex only comes in 37.5 mg formulation. Both can come in different forms, including pills and capsules. They can both have side effects including dry mouth, high blood pressure, and an increase in heart rate.
