Being an isomer of methamphetamine, Phentermine refers to stimulants and acts on brain neurotransmitters. It forces neurons to release a specific group of mediators known as catecholamines (such as dopamine, epinephrine ,and norepinephrine). The ability of these compounds to suppress appetite is due to their effect on the central nervous system and the blocking of hunger signals.
Indications for use
It is recommended to take a short course (usually about 12 weeks), and then connect other non-drug methods of healing. At the same time, recommendations limiting the duration of use of this drug are controversial. One of the reasons for this limitation is addiction since the ability of Phentermine to suppress appetite decreases as the body adapts. At the same time, there is clinical evidence that the drug has not lost its effectiveness during 36-week trials. However, due to the risk of insomnia, it is recommended to take it before breakfast or 1-2 hours later.
Mode of application
The course of treatment, as well as the dosage, is prescribed to each person individually, depending on the state of the problem and reaction to the treatment.
The course of taking Phentermine is usually 3 months. Phentermine should be taken 10-14 hours before bedtime so as not to disrupt the healthy sleep process. Usually, the dose is 30 mg per day, but your doctor may adjust it. Do not take Phentermine more than once a day, as well as break and chew tablets before use.
It is not recommended to use Phentermine hydrochloride 30mg to people suffering from diabetes; overly active thyroid gland; if you had an allergic reaction to this drug, glaucoma, liver and kidney problems.
Do not drink alcohol with the use of the drug, as undesirable side effects may occur. If you have any of these diseases or perhaps others, you should inform your doctor about it.
For children under 16 years of age, as well as for older people, this drug is also not recommended for use.
Numerous clinical studies and trials of the drug in practice have proved that Phentermine is a safe and highly effective drug for weight loss, and also has a very low percentage of side effects. With the proper administration of the drug, side effects are reduced to zero. However, some undesirable reactions of the body, in the first days of taking Phentermine, while the body is adapting, are possible.
Side effects include:
- chest pain
- heart rhythm may increase;
- dry mouth
As a result of prolonged use of this drug, a person may develop an addiction, so you should strictly follow the instructions of your doctor.
