Phentermine and alternative weight loss drugs

People, who want to lose extra pounds, should follow two simple rules. The first one is to keep a strict diet and the second one is to lead an active lifestyle (move a lot more or exercise).

It is a fact that strict low calorie diets and high physical activity are the keys to a successful weight loss. Whereas diets are manageable, physical exercises can become a problem for some obese patients. Typically, obesity is followed by various health disorders, making physical activity an impossible task.

If a person needs help to improve his weight loss therapy or to stick to a strict low calorie diet, a doctor prescribes a weight loss drug. Many weight loss drugs were approved by the FDA. However, Phentermine and Phendimetrazine were the most popular.

Phentermine and Phendimetrazine are known as anti-obesity drugs of sympathomimetic amines family. In spite this fact, the two weight loss drugs differ from each other. For example, the concentration and half-life of Phentermine is much longer than of Phendimetrazine (the last one acts in the body within 4 hours).

Another difference between these drugs is that Phentermine does not cause frequent urination, unlike Phendimetrazine. And the most important thing: Phendimetrazine is only prescribed to people older than 18 years, while Phentermine is prescribed to patients over 16 years old. Both medications must never be used in combination with other weight loss pills.

During clinical studies, it has been established that Phentermine anorexigenic effect is much higher than of Phendimetrazine. Considering this and the fact that Phentermine can be used by teenagers over 16 years old, it is clear why Phentermine was so popular.

Nevertheless, both Phendimetrazine and Phentermine weight loss drugs may cause side effects. If a patient noticed any side effects after the use of any of these drugs, other anti-obesity drugs may be prescribed. One of them is Orlistat, although its effect is a little bit different. Orlistat does not suppress the appetite, but inhibits the absorption of fat in the gastrointestinal tract of an overweight patient.

  • You can buy Phentermine in the USA. Phentermine is an active substance, while the drugs are available under the following names: Suprenza, Adipex-P and several generic drugs (Phentermine hydrochloride).
  • You can buy Phendimetrazine in the USA. Since Phendimetrazine is the active substance, it is available under such trade name as Bontril. In addition, you may find Phendimetrazine Tartrate – a generic version of this weight loss drug.

NB! Both Phentermine and Phendimetrazine drugs are listed in the Schedule IV Controlled Substances.

In addition, there are herbal weight loss drugs on the market today as well. For instance, Phen375 pills. Phen375 contains all natural ingredients and acts slowly by suppressing the appetite and improving the metabolism.

Today, you can order Phentermine pills online and save some money because usually this drug is quite expensive at ordinary pharmacies. The larger pack with pills you order, the more money you save.
