Phentermine

Phentermine is an appetite suppressant used in conjunction with diet and excercise to treat obesity in people with risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.

Phentermine (Adipex-P, Lomaira) is an amphetamine-like prescription medication used to suppress appetite. It can help weight loss by decreasing your hunger or making you feel full longer. Phentermine is also available in combination with topiramate for weight loss (Qsymia).

Like other prescription weight-loss drugs, phentermine is intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan. It is indicated for people who are obese, and who have failed to lose enough weight with diet and exercise alone — not for people who want to lose just a few pounds.Phentermine is a prescription-only appetite suppressant and weight loss pill, approved for short-term use.

The combination of phentermine and topiramate appears to be even more effective and tolerable than phentermine alone.

Side effects include dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue, irritability, and constipation.

The weight loss benefits of phentermine and topiramate also expand to people with BED and bulimia nervosa.

While phentermine can be a useful short-term weight loss tool, you must make healthy lifestyle changes for long-term success.
