How does phentermine work?

When ingested, Phentermine is quickly absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract. It is at its peak concentration in the blood in less than five hours and decreases the appetite.

Phentermine works by releasing chemicals (dopamine and norepinephrine) in the brain that control appetite. Once the drug’s effect reaches its peak, you will experience a decrease in your appetite. Outside of the brain, it triggers the release of epinephrine and adrenaline – known for their fat-burning properties.

Phentermine is not an over-the-counter medication and will be prescribed to you only if your body mass index (BMI) is equal to or greater than 30. Phentermine can be safely used by those people who have risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

Phentermine must be taken under the supervision of a specialist. It is essential to eat a well-balanced, low-carb diet and exercise every day when on this medication.

Is there anything I must keep in mind when on Phentermine?

Take the exact dose prescribed by your specialist, and do not take the medication for a longer or shorter period than recommended. Do not stop the medication suddenly. Talk to your specialist if you do not lose 4 pounds after approximately four weeks of treatment.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. You must skip a missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose.

Am I the right candidate for Phentermine?

Phentermine is not suitable for everyone. To begin with, you must be over the age of 16 and below the age of 66 to be prescribed Phentermine. You must also have a BMI of 25+. You might not be a candidate for Phentermine if you are on certain medications or suffer from certain diseases.

When you visit us, our specialists will determine if Phentermine is the best solution for you.

If you begin our Phentermine program, our specialists will keep an eye on you to ensure the medication is working as it should in your body.
