In brief: Not neccesarily

Phentermine, and other fda approved stimulant drugs for appetite suppressiion may cause insomnnia but have often worn off when taken in the am. If this is a problem- lower doses can be used.
Additionally, there are other medications, not yet approved specifically for appetite suppression, such as topiramate and/or naltrexone, that work and are non stimulant medications.
