Healthy Weight Loss With Phentermine

We live in a competitive world. At the top of that competition is looks. What we wear, how we look, and what size we are. We are a vain society. This vanity fuels the diet industry into making us think that there are quick fixes to our weight troubles. In comes the fat free, sugar free, low carb world that we find ourselves in today. Is this really a healthy way to get thin? Now add to it the influx of diet supplements, pills, shakes, injections and drinks. It's no wonder we are confused. Is there really a "short-cut" to weight loss? Well, research says that there are aids that can help you lose weight if their use is properly monitored by a physician. If used in conjunction with a healthy diet, these aids can help you achieve healthy weight loss. One such aid is Phentermine Hydrochloride (Phentermine or Adipex) commonly recommended by the healthcare community to aid weight loss.

Phentermine was first approved by the FDA in 1959. It is a sympathomimetic amine which is prescribed to lower appetite in an obese individual. Till 1997 a cocktail of Phentermine with Fenfluramine known as Fen-Phen was in use to treat obesity, but in 1997, due to reports of pulmonary hypertension and heart valve diseases, Fenfluramine was banned in the US market. Phentermine remained FDA approved.

Todays use of phentermine is as a prescription to aid in the short term healthy loss of weight in someone with a BMI of at least 27 and on a diet. It is important to be aware that this drug does come with some side effects. These side effects include sleeplessness, blurred vision, dry mouth, stomach upset, irritability, and constipation, however most people report that these symptoms are usually visible for the first few days after taking Phentermine. Most patients report that they are short lived and are mild. Phentermine may also elevate heart rate and blood pressure, that is why it is very important that you are cleared by a doctor before beginning a regimen of phentermine which includes providing the doctor with your complete medical history prior to being prescribed this drug.

Phentermine can be added to many diet plans when monitored by a trained physician and can be quite effective in helping you stick with your diet plan but rest assured it is not the only piece of the puzzle. You must commit to a healthy eating plan which is based on your individual metabolic rate for your body.
