Appetite Suppressants (Phentermine)

Appetite Suppressants (Phentermine)

When someone is overweight, it’s hard to deny that unending drive to drop pounds, which is why appetite suppressant weight loss is a good way to help.

At Thrive Health Solutions, we use FDA approved phentermine for appetite suppressant weight loss. Phentermine is an amphetamine-like prescription used to suppress appetite and can aid in weight loss by decreasing hunger or reducing cravings. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to tell hunger and cravings to take a hike?

Amphetamines? Yes, you might have heard some negative chatter about them. But before getting to that, let’s address the good they can do. First approved in 1959, phentermine is an option for people who are extremely overweight, with at least one weight-related condition including, but not limited to, high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol. All of which can be real killers if left untreated. It should be noted that when used for appetite suppressant weight loss, phentermine is for short-term use. A few weeks to a month. And like any weight loss option, appetite suppressant weight loss should be part of an overall weight loss plan that includes diet and exercise. Neither of which has to be extreme or unsustainable. The idea is to help you lose weight and keep it off, not get frustrated enough to give up.

So let’s address those concerns about amphetamines. Because they are a class of drugs that have potential for abuse, they need to be administered under careful medical supervision. Which, in every case, with any treatment, is what you’ll find at Thrive. Always. Which ought to be a weight off your mind.

Can I take phentermine along with the Thrive HCG Weight Loss Program and/or Lipotropic Injections?

Yes, phentermine (as needed) along with the Thrive HCG Weight Loss Program and Lipotropic Injections can have a positive effect on helping with occasional cravings. The phentermine along with HCG and Lipotropic Injections creates a synergistic effect of curbing cravings, allowing the HCG and lipotropic injections to target and release fat while preserving lean (muscle) mass within the body, resulting in a higher ending metabolism. The weight (fat) loss results when used in conjunction with a Thrive HCG and lipotropics program versus phentermine alone are significant.

How to use Phentermine

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually one-half tablet once a day, 1 hour before breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after breakfast. If needed, your doctor may adjust your dose to take a small dose up to 3 times a day. Carefully follow your doctor’s instructions. Taking this medication late in the day may cause trouble sleeping (insomnia).

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Your doctor will adjust the dose to find the best dose for you. Use this medication regularly and exactly as prescribed in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day.

This medication is usually taken for only a few weeks at a time. It should not be taken with other “anorectic” appetite suppressants. The possibility of serious side effects increases with longer use of this medication and use of this drug along with certain other diet drugs.

This medication may cause withdrawal reactions, especially if it has been used regularly for a long time or in high doses. In such cases, withdrawal symptoms (such as depression, severe tiredness) may occur if you suddenly stop using this medication. To prevent withdrawal reactions, your doctor may reduce your dose gradually.

Though it helps many people, this medication may sometimes cause addiction. This risk may be higher if you have a substance use disorder (such as overuse of or addiction to drugs/alcohol). Do not increase your dose, take it more often, or use it for a longer time than prescribed. Properly stop the medication when so directed.

This medication may stop working well after you have been taking it for several weeks. Talk with your doctor if this medication stops working. Do not increase the dose unless directed by your doctor. Your doctor may direct you to stop taking this medication.
