Tingling in arms, numbness in thumbs, insomnia. Taking Adipex. Could it be side-effects of Adipex?

I started taking Adipex to get me going on a weight-loss regimen three months ago. I now have tingling in my arms, numbness in both thumbs, and trouble sleeping. I can go for days without going to bed before 4:00 a.m. Are these side effects of the Adipex? The numbness is troubling because I teach school and need those hands to work properly!

Welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. Mild to moderate side effects are experienced during Adipex usage and reported in a number of cases. Since Adipex affects a number of different systems in the body, side effects can manifest themselves in a number of different ways. As nervous system side effects are common with Adipex use because of this drugs activity in the brain. Mild side effects may include over-stimulation, restlessness, dizziness, insomnia, euphoria, dysphoria, tremors, tingling and headaches. If its affecting your daily activities will recommend you consult your clinician and modify the same. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks
