In brief: Type of speed

Phentermine is a type of amphetamine (speed) which can increase metabolism slightly and decrease hunger somewhat.
Most doctors limit use to 3 months. Use it as a tool combined with healthy eating to learn new eating behavior. Prolonged use can lead to a type of dependency.

In brief: SAFE AND EFFECTIVE F

Anorectic or appetite suppressant drugs like Phentermine in most cases must be used long term as part of a medical weight-loss program for long term control.
We have had patients on Phentermine on a continuous basis for well over a decade without untoward side effects.
