Adieux is Phentermine. Phentermine is related chemically and pharmacologically to amphetamine and other related stimulant drugs that have been extensively abused. Phentermine is a Schedule IV controlled substance.
What you're doing when you take is Adipex from a "weight loss clinic" is taking speed in order to lose weight. If you search the web a bit, you'll see a ton of stories from people who got hooked on Adipex and had a miserable time coming off it, as well as a ton of people who lost weight and gained even more back after they went of Adipex.
Honestly, if you want to lose weight long-term, taking speed isn't the way to do it. Control your caloric intake for a month and you'll lose weight. Do some moderate exercise and you'll lose even more. No drugs required. Your goal should be to control your caloric intake and do moderate exercise for the rest of your life. This will almost certainly make you happy and healthy.
As far as your question about the DEA goes, I wouldn't personally do anything. I'd stop trying to get Adipex and continue tapering suboxone with an end-date in mind.
I was on subs on my sub doc prescribed Adderral as part of my treatment plan. I honestly had no idea what it was at the time but it is amphetamine salts. My pharmacy filled it no problem and I took it. Well, I ended up abusing that and while I lost a lot of weight, it was not in a healthy manner and it went right back on when I stopped. One time I thought I was having a heart attack from the speed!! I would steer clear...
I agree with Ben, I never myself had a hard time getting off speed( adderal, by vyvanse, or meth) but being on any of them after a few days really puts you in a bad place, stimulation overload, although I'm a bad abuser, just be careful and good luck
And subs turned out to be awful for me to come off of and I did NOT abuse those. Took very low dose entire time but my doc kept me on far too long. I finally told her I was done and did long slow taper to virtually nothing and had awful withdrawals for weeks that drove me back to the opiates I was trying to kick.
Nice to meet you.
I am Lily, 7 years clean of opiates.
my advise to you is to get clean.
Replacement of one drug for another just doesn't compute with me.
We are here for you. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Seven years ago I got clean with nothing but myself, and this wonderful forum of caring people.
you can do it.
