Question: I have been traveling with my fiance for his work, and i have fibromyalgia real bad. i go back to Missouri to my family doctor every 6 months for my fibro medication but he recently has prescribed me Adipex p 37.5 due to the fact that with my fibro i have no energy and most days cannot fulfill my daily duties, but he wants me to find some in the XXXXXXX area that can monitor me while i am on the adipex. Can you help?
