Phentermine (Adipex, Ionamin, Duromine)




Summary


Phentermine is a prescription appetite suppressant. It is one of the two ingredients in Fen-phen.


Description


Phentermine comes as either a quick-acting drug (Adipex) or
a time-release drug (Ionamin or Duromine). It is generally only prescribed to people who are morbidly obese and thus are have health risks because of their weight.

Phentermine affects the neurotransmitters in your brain, causing stimulation which your brain responds to by turning off the hunger sensation.

Generally, patients only receive Phentermine for up to 12 weeks. Longer term use is not encouraged due to the issues of a tolerance reaction. Phentermine may become less effective over time, thus it's best not to use it for too long.


History


Phentermine was one of the two drugs in the infamous Fen-phen (which was withdrawn from the US market after it was linked to heart-related illnesses and deaths). But, it was Fenfluramine that was the problem with Fen-phen. So, Phentermine is still available.


Criticism


Phentermine acts like an amphetamine and thus can be addictive. Because of this, it is a controlled substance.

Phentermine is linked to insomnia and may cause blood pressure and heart rate to increase. Essentially, it's a stimulant and has all the side-effects (both negative and positive) of one.

I just did a quick google, and he still has the same website - absolutelythin.com. I am sure that the price did not stay the same, though. The first visit has to be a face-to-face and was $75 plus you get a script for phen and, if you want, a script for prozac. He believes the prozac makes the phen last longer. I chose not to take the pro. The next 11 monthly visits used to be $60 or $65, and you simply did a progress report online and he phoned in your script, or mailed one to you. The face-to-face is the only change that I am aware of. Theoretically, I could fly to Dallas once a year.....

I don't know what to think about phentermine at this point. Depending on which scale I use, I think I've lost only 5lbs in the last 2 months. The first month my doc had me on 15mg though. I've been on 37.5 for almost a month now. I know I could probably still eat better than I am, but shouldn't this pill be more effective? I keep reading about all these people losing 15lbs in the first month, and I feel shorted.

It is not WHAT you do to exercise and burn calories. It is that you do something, regularly...something that makes you MOVE. Stay away from the TV as much as possible.
Taking care of and playing with 2yr old twins is more than anyone needs to get/stay in shape.
