If you suffer from obesity or struggle to control your appetite, an appetite control medication called phentermine may help you.
Phentermine is an FDA approved medication. Phentermine works as an appetite suppressant by blocking cravings and making one feel full therefore decreasing the appetite. Phentermine stimulates the hypothalamus gland, the area of the brain responsible for controlling hunger and the release of certain neurotransmitters. Phentermine uses both the central nervous system and the hypothalamus to help diminish appetite. When used in conjunction with diet and exercise, it can help with stubborn weight loss and the management of obesity.
Phentermine typically makes one feel more energetic and less drowsy. This is especially beneficial when taking on a fitness program to add to weight loss. Phentermine should never be the substitute for diet and exercise. For successful results, phentermine should be taken while engaging in physical activity and committing to healthy food choices.
