At Thrive Health Solutions, we offer the FDA-approved appetite suppressant Phentermine for weight loss. Phentermine is an amphetamine-like prescription used to suppress appetite and can aid in weight loss by decreasing hunger or reducing cravings.
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 the 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.
At Thrive Health Solutions, we believe that losing (fat) weight is best achieved with an integrative, comprehensive, and holistic approach, and we provide a range of treatments, medications, and treatments as well as resources and tools to maximize your weight goals and success.

No. Phentermine does not have Ephedrine in it. Phentermine and ephedrine are two separate medications.
Is Phentermine the Same as Fen-phen?
No. Phentermine was half of Fen-phen. Fen-phen was a nickname given to the weight loss drug combination of Fenfluramine and Phentermine, which were in popular use from about 1994 to 1997. Fenfluramine was banned at the request of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to concerns about these drugs possibly damaging heart valves in some users of these medications. Phentermine, used without Fenfluramine, was not found to be associated with this increased incidence of heart valve changes and so was allowed to remain on the U.S. market, as it has been for over the past 40 years.
Phentermine is classified as a Schedule 4 controlled substance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), implying that it does have minimal abuse liability. Tolerance to the medication does develop, to where its side effects and some of its appetite suppressant effects lessen over time, which is one common component of a potentially addictive drug. This is why Thrive monitors your use and has alternatives that are better for long-term use.
