Adipan review

Adipan is an appetite suppressant and stimulant with the ability to stimulate the brain and nerves (central nervous system) by increasing the amount of chemicals in the body. The medicament is said to increase a persons heart rate and blood pressure as well as promote appetite loss.

Adipan is used to treat patients with Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity or ADHD. Benefits of using Adipan include improved concentration, decreased sensory overstimulation, impulse control, decreased mood condition and irritability.

Patients suffering from dyssomnia or other forms of sleeping disorders can also use Adipan. Doctors also use this medicament along with anti-depressants for acute cases of depression. Overweight individuals may also use a lighter dosage of Adipan to promote weight loss.

The recommended dosage of Adipan will depend on the treatment. Adipan for dyssomnia patients, especially adults, ranges from 5 to 60mg per day, which is mostly taken as two small dosages.

Children 6 to 12 years of age are advised to take 5mg a day, while those above 12 years old takes 10mg a day. Patients suffering from obesity are given 5 to 30mg in divided dosages, taken one and a half hour before each meal.

ADHD treatment using Adipan follows the dosage of 5mg per day for ages 6 years old and above. Dosage is halved for children below 6 years old.

Side effects commonly attributed to the use of Adipan are:
• increased heart rate and blood pressure
irregular heartbeat
• restlessness
• shakiness
• dry mouth with a metallic taste (said to be one of the reasons for appetite loss)
diarrhea and costiveness
• weight loss

Aside from the minor side effects mentioned above, taking Adipan above the prescribed dosage may cause a change in a person's sex drive, allergic reactions, chills, depression, irritability or mood swings, and problems with the digestive system. Higher dosages of Adipan is said to cause addiction, aggression, dependence, and a series of psychotic episodes that may prove to be a danger to the patient, as well as those around them.

It is advisable for patients to inform their doctors of their use of Adipan before undergoing any treatment. Over-the-counter medicaments might have an adverse affect on a person taking Adipan that can cause fatal episodes of increased heartbeat and blood pressure.

Cold medicaments are said to be a bad combination with Adipan. Other interactions with Adipan include antacids, furoxone, sodium bicarbonate, and other medicaments that control high-blood pressures are believed to have adverse effects with the medicament.

People who are taking Adipan should not immediately stop its use. Follow your doctor's advice to slowly decrease the dosage until it is discontinued. Avoid taking Adipan in the evenings since it might affect normal sleep patterns. Also avoid taking it prior to participating in hazardous activities, like driving or extreme sports. Consult your doctor before taking in this medicament.
