Appetite Suppressant - Phentermine for Weight Loss Under Physician Supervision
Nowadays, obesity and overweight are very common conditions. The WHO (World Health Organization) estimates that in 2016 approximately 1.9 billion of adults around the world are obese and approximately 650 million adults have overweight. So, it is considered a public health problem and has attracted the attention of many specialists.
Obesity can be prevented and treated by having a healthy lifestyle, but in some cases, a person is not capable of losing all the weight that he/she needs with the first measures (a balanced diet and exercising). This is why experts in nutrition and other doctors have developed new techniques and medicines, such as the Phentermine, to facilitate weight loss and thus avoid side effects of obesity and overweight.
What is Phentermine?
Phentermine is defined by the experts as a medication very similar to the amphetamine able to suppress the appetite. Nowadays, it is available in the market with many brand names and presentations (especially tablets and capsules). The experts use the phentermine for weight loss and appetite suppressant because it is able to decrease the hunger sensation by modifying the neurotransmitters responsible for hunger sensation and the brain responses at the time that helps the person to feel full for more time.
Phentermine also boosts the energy, so the person who takes it tends to become more active even when he/she is eating a fewer amount of calories. In fact, phentermine is so good to lose weight that in 1959 it was approved by the FDA as an appetite suppressant medication and obesity treatment in the short-term.
Phentermine is usually recommended for obese people (body mass index ≥ 30 kg/m2, or ≥ 27 kg/m2 in the presence of other risk factors) who have tried correctly the first measures to lose weight (a proper and healthy diet and a good plan of exercises), but they have been unsuccessfully or insufficient. However, the experts advise against it in people who only want to lose a few pounds.
The experts usually recommend the 60 days phentermine program, which consists in taking a phentermine dose between 18.75 mg and 37.5 mg once a day for 60 days before breakfast or about 1 or 2 hours after it (to avoid insomnia).
It is important to know that physician monitored phentermine programs must be used only in the dose and for the time that the doctor indicates because it is considered a Schedule IV drug, which means that it has risk of causing dependence and abuse. However, the experts say that this risk is low and it can be avoided by following the indications of the specialist correctly.
It is important to highlight that phentermine is not a miracle, so although it can help to reduce the hunger sensation, the person will need to undergo an overall weight-loss plan (including a proper diet and exercise) indicated by a qualified doctor.
Likewise, only a qualified doctor can determine if a person can undergo a physician monitored phentermine program because certain health conditions, such as arterial hypertension, chronic constipation, glaucoma, dry mouth, sleeplessness/insomnia, among others, can be worsened by this medication.
Likewise, phentermine can interact with some medication, so only a qualified doctor can determine the possible adverse effects and contraindications in each patient. Finally, phentermine can´t be taken (except specific cases) for children under 16 years of age.
