Using Phentermine For Obesity

Phentermine is a drug used to suppress your appetite so this is given widely to patients who suffer from obesity as doctors and likes think it will help, but in truth there are more disadvantages to these types of methods of weight loss. Phentermine is a drug so therefore it will of course have side effects, all drugs do and one of the things you have to be careful about when you are on any kind of drug is that you do not become dependant on it. Being on this type drug and for a long time is not good for you I’m about to tell you why!


Phentermine was usually prescribed as Fen-phen, which is a combination of fenfluramine and Phentermine; although that combination is no longer used Phentermine is still prescribed.

The side effects of Phentermine include nervousness, irritability, sweating, nausea, headache, dry mouth, constipation, sleep problems and more importantly addiction. All these side effects have been reported while using Phentermine to treat obesity, there are of course some rarer ones which are of course unheard of but they do happen. These side effects listed are general side effects and most people taking Phentermine will usually suffer from at least one during the period when they are using Phentermine.


Using Phentermine to abominate obesity is not a good idea; it has been banned in Europe due to the speculation that it is related to heart and lung problems, also it is not known whether it is 100%safe to take this medication or any other kind like it for more than a couple of weeks. Weight is generally gained after stopping this medication so if your going to out it all back on after using this medication, suffering from the side effects and having a really unhappy time while being on them what is the point in being on them at all, that is my philosophy!

Obesity and Phentermine don’t work together, the best possible way to achieve ultimate weight loss is to eat a healthy and balanced diet and incorporate some moderate exercise every day and there you have it, the best way to loose weight safely!
