Phentermine is a prescription drug, first developed in 1959 that helps suppress appetite, known as an anorectic. It is used short-term to help aid weight loss by decreasing appetite helping an individual feel fuller sooner when eating, leading to fewer calories consumed, and thus weight loss.
It is also a stimulant which can have the effect of increasing energy level, and thus activity level, something that can be beneficial to enhancing the desire to exercise as well as enhance weight loss.
Before you can be prescribed Phentermine, you must undergo a medical evaluation/visit with the physician to determine if Phentermine is right for you. A health history will be taken and appropriate physical exams will be performed.
You will be asked about your current medications and drug allergies.
