Phentermine is more known as the best medicine for the treatment of obesity. And the drug is the best not because it gives a fast effect, but because the results of the weight loss will be kept even after the end of the treatment.
The active ingredients of Phentermine stimulate the receptors of satiation, so that a patient is quickly full and is not hungry. The drug does not have a thermogenic effect and does not influence on metabolic processes in the body, and therefore it is rather safe and seldom causes side effects.
An advantage of Phentermine is that a fat loss happens naturally. The drug only reduces a desire to eat. In combination with a low-calorie diet and physical activity, about 10-12% of the excessive weight may be lost within 3-6 months. The body weight will be lost by means of the fatty tissue not water. The action of the drug begins right after the first application. But the changes in the body may be noticed in 3-4 weeks.
Phentermine is often compared to amphetamines. In spite of the similarity of these ingredients, the action of Phentermine is softer and does not cause a medical addiction. A development of the addiction is possible only during the use of the high doses.
Phentermine should be used on a regular basis for at least 3 months. Skipping any dose reduces a therapeutic effect. The everyday dose of Phentermine is 37,5 mg – 1 capsule/pill. The pills should be used once per day, in the morning, before breakfast. The pill should be taken in 20-30 minutes before having breakfast.
Take the medicine with clear water. Do not use sour juice or milk because they may slow down the uptake of the active ingredients in the intestine.
A course of the treatment lasts for at least 6 months. If the required result is not achieved in this period, it is necessary to take a break for 3-4 months, and then another course of the treatment may be done.
The use of Phentermine should be accompanied by a low-calorie diet and physical activity. If the lifestyle is not changed, the body will get more calories, so that the weight loss slows.
