Phentermine Prescription: Your Weight Loss Solution? 

 

Phentermine Prescription - Overview:

Front Image - PHENTERMINE HYDROCHLORIDEPhentermine prescriptions, like most prescriptions for weight loss medications, are really designed for obesity control when the advantages of losing weight outweigh the disadvantages of the side effects. Phentermine prescriptions are helpful for those with weight conditions which require immediate weight loss to alleviate medical conditions such as diabetes and heart conditions. When used in conjunction with diet, exercise and behavior therapy, a prescription of phentermine may help you lose weight while youíre learning new ways to eat and to exercise.

How would my phentermine prescription work?

Phentermine prescription medication works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters which decrease appetite such as serotonin. The hypothalamus is the region of the brain which controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating body temperature, sleep cycles and appetite. Prescription medications such as phentermine are known to increase serotonin levels in the brain, which then trick the brain into believing your stomach is full, and increasing your metabolic rate. Prescription phentermine comes from the sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants, which are usually used for short-term management of obesity.

 

Are there dangers associated with my phentermine prescription?

All weight loss medications including your phentermine prescription will have a significant impact upon your blood pressure, metabolism and general health. Weight loss pills should never be considered an easy or fast weight loss solution. Whether they assist weight loss or not, most diet pills have unpleasant side effects, are known to create drug dependency and interfere with other necessary medications. As mentioned before, weight loss medications are usually designed for obesity control or when the advantages of losing weight outweigh the disadvantages of the side effects. They are usually short-term aids for severely overweight dieters. Nearly all clinical trials of phentermine and other weight loss medications show that pills are usually only effective as part of a comprehensive weight management program of diet, exercise, behavior therapy and weight loss support among family and friends.

Am I a candidate for a phentermine prescription?

You may be a candidate for a prescription of phentermine if some of the above circumstances are applicable to your life. Itís appropriateness should always be determined by a licensed physician. You should not take phentermine if you have heart disease or high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), have glaucoma, have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAO I) such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), or phenelzine (Nardil) in the last 14 days, or have a history of drug or alcohol abuse. Also, before taking this medication you should tell your doctor if you have problems with your thyroid, anxiety disorder, epilepsy or another seizure disorder or diabetes. You may not be able to take phentermine or you may require special dosing if you have any of the conditions described above.
