What is the proper process of a physical, for a Physician to decide a patient is o'kay to take Adipex diet pills?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

When this was going on, I think that the only thing would have been on was birth-control.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

At that time, I was fine. I just wanted help to lose some pounds.

I would get a complete past medical history and any medications presently taken

Then I'd do a complete physical exam, EKG and blood work to check for thyroid problems, anemia, and cholesterol problems

So long as there wasn't uncontrolled hypertension or any cardiac problems I'd then consider it safe to prescribe the Adipex

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
