Getting Healthy With Help
Phentermine is a prescription medication that can be used to assist with the battle of obesity. Phentermine is an effective form of therapy for patients who need to lose weight to decrease diseases associated with being overweight.
The weight loss that you achieve using Phentermine will depend on how well you watch your diet and your exercise program.
How Phentermine Works
Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite. The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.
It should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.
Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning.
