When Adipex was first approved by the FDA (in 1982), its supplier at the US market was Lemmon Pharmacal Company. In 1982, Pennsylvania-based company, Lemmon began to supply oral tablets in the USA, and in 1983 – Adipex (Phentermine 37.5mg) capsules.
Since 1985, Lemmon has become a part of Teva Pharmaceuticals USA. Thus, in 1985, all rights for Adipex in the USA were transferred to Teva company. For a few years, Lemmon has continued to produce Adipex drug for Teva.
In March 1990, Lemmon Pharmacal Company created Pennsylvania-based subsidiary of Gate Pharmaceuticals, which started to manufacture and sell Adipex drug in the USA.
• Today, Teva Pharmaceuticals USA company (Sellersville, PA) is indicated as an exclusive manufacturer of Adipex drug.
• Teva Select Brands company (Horsham, PA) is engaged in distribution and promotion of Adipex at the U.S. market of weight loss products.
Dozens of Adipex generic drugs are sold in the USA; two among them were approved by the FDA in 2014. In February 2014, the supplier of Adipex generic in the USA became InvaGen company, and in August 2014 – Aurolife company.
If you want to buy Adipex or Adipex generic, ask your doctor to write out you a prescription for the anorexigenic drug containing Phentermine Hydrochloride. If you want to get a prescription for Adipex generic but have never used Phentermine-containing drugs, medical examination is required before starting anti-obesity therapy.
