Phentermine Blue and Adipex are based on the exact same active ingredient, which leads many people to believe that this makes them identical pills. However, even though the differences between them may be slight, they do still exist and it is worthwhile knowing about them before you start using either one of them. To start, you can be assured that both names of the pills will offer the same type of benefits in addition to the same risk of side effects and addiction. That said, there are still a few things that set them apart from one another.
The primary and most obvious difference between Phentermine Blue and Adipex is in the name. The former is the generic name of the capsule form of phentermine hydrochloride. It may be manufactured by any of a number of different pharmaceutical companies, which include Caraco Pharmaceutical Laboratories, Purepac Pharmaceutical Company, URL Pharma, Actavis, Lannett Company Inc., KVK Tech, and Qualitest Pharmaceuticals. The latter, on the other hand, is a brand name of the drug, which is owned by that pill’s manufacturer, which is TEVA Biologics.
Many people are surprised to discover that the differences that exist between Phentermine Blue and Adipex actually step beyond the generic and trade name. For example, Phentermine Blue is a capsule. The typical appearance is an oblong pill that is solid medium blue on one side and clear on the other side. The clear side allows you to see into the pill, where there are pale blue and white beads that contain the phentermine hydrochloride. On the other hand, Adipex is a brand that comes in both capsules and tablets. The capsules appear slightly different. They are also oblong n shape, but they are a light blue one side, and white on the other side. The white side has two stripes that do not entirely wrap around the width of the pill. Moreover, they are stamped with the word Adipex 37.5. The Adipex tablets are usually white with blue speckles and may have the name stamped into one side.
Both of these drugs are prescribed with a low calorie diet and a requirement for additional daily exercise. Furthermore, neither Phentermine Blue nor Adipex will be prescribed to just any dieter. Only those who are obese and whose weight is putting them at an increased risk of a serious health condition will be able to obtain a prescription for these pills.
