Phentermine Diet Pills: When Diet and Exercise Arent Enough To Help You Lose Weight


Have you been struggling to lose weight, but diet and exercise aren't giving you the results you need to be healthy? Are you sick of people telling you that you could lose weight if only you had the will-power? It may be time to ask a physician about a phentermine prescription.

What is Phentermine?

Remember those 50s movies in which women lost weight by taking amphetamines? We know now that amphetamines can be very dangerous, so they don't make safe weight-loss drugs. Chemically, phentermine is a little like amphetamines, but isn't one. So it has the weight-loss effect but fewer "Valley of the Dolls" worries for you.

Phentermine is an appetite suppressant - it changes the chemicals made by your brain to make you feel less hungry. Some researchers think that it might also speed up your metabolism. Short-term use of phentermine has been shown to help people who are already on diet and exercise programs lose weight.

It sounds perfect! How do I get started?

Although phentermene isn't an amphetamine, it can have serious side-effects, so before you can buy phentermene, you need a prescription. If your body-mass index (calculated from your height and weight) is high (over 30) your doctor may agree that a drug should be added to your diet and exercise program. You'll stay on the drug for a few weeks or months, after which you'll be ready to continue your weight-loss program on your own steam!

If you have atherosclerosis, a history of drug or alcohol addiction, allergies to certain medications, high-blood pressure, diabetes, or are on certain anti-depressants (especially MAO inhibitors), your doctor may suggest a different drug for you.

All these names! Which phentermine is which?

If you can read your doctor's handwriting, you might notice she has prescribed a drug with a different name than "phentermine." Phentermine is just the name of the chemical found in a number of different products. Adipex, Phentercot, Teramine, Fastin and Pro-fast are all brand names for drugs that have the same active ingredient, phentermine.

Ionamin has phentermine in a special "resin" formula that helps it last longer. Phentermine 37.5 is just a generic version of phentermine that comes in a large dose. Phentermine 37.5 is great if you need a larger dose of the drug.

Where do I go from here?

To make sure you get the most out of your phentermine prescription, make sure to keep this to-do list handy:

? Get your prescription refilled before you run out of pills; online pharmacies can set up a regular refill for you, as prescribed by your doctor.

? Check in with your doctor if you start having side-effects like sleeplessness, nightmares, difficulty breathing, or chest pain.

? If you feel the appetite-suppression is wearing off, it's time to talk to your doctor about going off the medication.

? Don't forget - this drug works its magic with exercise and diet - so keep up your own good work for best results!
