Yes there is a difference. OTC is legally not allowed to have any to have any phentermine (adipex) in its product. You will need to see a doctor and get a prescription for adipex if you would like to take it for weight loss. The suggested maximum time is up to 12 weeks as it hasn't been shown to be effective beyond that time frame.
