MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
What is Phentermine?
Obesity and being overweight pose various health hazards and reduces an individual's quality of life. However, it can be difficult for many people to reduce their weight through diet and exercise. One of the scientific solutions to weight reduction is Phentermine medication, which can significantly contribute to the weight loss regimen.
Phentermine is a prescription weight loss medication. When used under controlled conditions, it can act as an appetite suppressant by affecting the central nervous system. At a qualified medical facility, Phentermine can be used as a part of a weight loss program along with diet and exercise.
Phentermine is usually indicated as a short term adjunct - for not more than a few weeks - in a weight loss regimen based on calorific restriction, behavior, lifestyle modication, and physical exercise.
How does Phentermine work?
Phentermine is a physchostimulant. It suppresses your appetite by increasing the levels of neurotransmitters in your brain, such as norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. When these levels increase, your feelings of hunger decrease. This makes you feel hungry less often, which causes you to eat less and allows you to adhere to a low-calorie diet. This accelerates weight loss by reducing your urge to eat and increasing the amount of energy used by your body.
