In brief: Phentermine info

Hi wavy. Phentermine has been used by weight loss specialists and in university weight loss programs for more than 50 years.
It does not cause addiction, specifically patients don't become tolerant to it and there is no withdrawal when stopped. It works with diet and exercise and should be prescribed by a physician. Methamaphetamine is highly addictive and has many damaging side effects.
