    The over-the-counter weight loss medication business is huge, selling millions of dollars worth of supplements every year, but do the weight loss supplements they sell actually work?

That being said, no medication works on everyone, and this is true of Adipex too. We will do everything we can include working without medications, or prescribing different medications and/or vitamins if Adipex does not work for you. Note: We are NOT an online pharmacy and we do NOT sell prescriptions ...Read More
