Customer Question
I am 60 years old...
I am 60 years old and weigh 184 lbs. I took adipex 37.5 10 years ago and had great success with it. I would like to try it again, but I now live on a large ranch miles from town. Can this be subscribed, and mailed to me? I am in overall good health according to a check up last year, did have high tryglicerids though.

It is quite an effective medication.

Glad it worked for you.

Yes, it can be prescribed online and then mailed to you.

To have this done you would need to go through a telemedicine company such as doctors on demand or American Well. First inquire to see if they will prescribe it because it's considered a "lifestyle medication".

You can tell them that it's important for your weight control to prevent diabetes or heart attack and that it was advised by your doctor. That often will urge them to prescribe it for you.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
