Name: Adipost

What is Adipost (phendimetrazine)?

Phendimetrazine is similar to an amphetamine. Phendimetrazine stimulates the central nervous system (nerves and brain), which increases your heart rate and blood pressure and decreases your appetite.

Phendimetrazine is used as a short-term supplement to diet and exercise in the treatment of obesity.

Phendimetrazine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

A dose taken too late in the day will cause insomnia.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. An overdose of phendimetrazine can be fatal.

Overdose symptoms of a phendimetrazine overdose include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, confusion, panic, hallucinations, extreme restlessness, feeling tired or depressed, ringing in your ears, chest pain, slow heart rate, weak pulse, fainting, seizure, or slow breathing (breathing may stop).

Other Comments

-Overdosage: The management of acute overdosage is largely symptomatic and includes lavage and sedation with a barbiturate. The use of a nitrate or rapid-acting alpha receptor-blocking agent should be considered if hypertension is marked. Experience with hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis is inadequate to permit recommendations for their use.
