How to take Phentermine properly for weight loss?

When taking Phentermine for weight loss, it is crucial to know the right time to take the drug. Usually, it is taken early in the morning along with your morning breakfast.

Take half a pill for the first week of starting your weight loss program with Dr2bThin. You can take the medication with milk or natural almond milk. Start taking the whole pill in the following week and continue the same way, without skipping a dose. This medication should be swallowed whole and not crushed or chewed.

The length of your weight loss program depends on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Follow moderate exercises with some weight training during this program. Your doctor may also recommend the same based on your condition.

What is Phentermine?

Phentermine is a powerful weight loss medication that is a prescription-only stimulant and is FDA-approved. It contains weight loss pills that help people lose weight by eliminating the need to eat more. It has a long list of side effects and an even longer list of Phentermine contraindications, and that’s why this medication is not for everyone.

Phentermine is not prescribed if the patient has any pre-existing medical conditions or consumes drug combinations that may increase the risk of experiencing adverse reactions. For this reason, the doctor will pursue a thorough review of your complete medical history and current health status. You’ll also be asked about pre-existing medications and supplements before prescribing Phentermine.

 

How to lose weight effectively with Phentermine?

Several people have taken Phentermine for weight loss and experienced its benefits, but the results are not the same for everyone. Eating habits, body-drug reaction, activity level, medical conditions, and other factors differ from one person to another.

For the proper use of Phentermine, consultation with your physician is essential. After carefully reviewing your health condition, your doctor will clear you for Phentermine with an online prescription.

How to use Phentermine Correctly?

Phentermine is taken orally with milk or natural almond milk early in the morning along with your breakfast.

We would say the best way to have Phentermine is to ensure that you don’t skip the dose. Due to erratic schedules, patients have often forgotten to take the pill at the right time. Please consult a doctor if this happens because this weight loss medicine is most effective when taken at the right time and not missed.

The drug’s effect kicks in three to 4.4 hours after being consumed. We prescribe Phentermine 37.5 mg to our patients,

Also, the drug provides energy to carry out activities during the day, which is why the dose is meant to be taken early in the morning. However, if taken later during the day, you will experience insomnia as you try to sleep at night.

 

Is Phentermine Safe? Side-effects to watch out for

During the Phentermine treatment, you will experience a few side effects, including:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Tingling or prickling feeling in hands or feet
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleeplessness
  • Nervousness
  • Constipation

With extended use, diet pills can lead to psychological dependence. However, Phentermine is not a habit-forming substance. At the same time, quitting diet pills all at once can lead to withdrawal symptoms, and that is why it is necessary to stop medication under the doctor’s supervision gradually.

Phentermine is generally prescribed for 3 to 6 weeks, depending on how you respond to the medication.

We don’t recommend long-term treatment as it can present a few symptoms of excessive drowsiness, shaking, and tiredness. In rare cases, psychological and physical dependency may occur with long-term usage.

Here’s what one may experience if they took Phentermine for a longer duration:

  • Dizzy at times
  • Sleeplessness may occur
  • Tremor, restlessness, irritability, and hyperactivity
  • In rare cases – vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation
  • Dry mouth
