Phentermine (Adipex, Ionamin, Duromine)


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


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.


Phentermine was one of the two drugs in the infamous Fen-phen (which was withdrawn from the US market after it was linked to heart-related illnesses and deaths).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.


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.

For those of you in the Kentucky (or even Ohio or Indiana) area, there is a place called Figure Weight Loss in northern Kentucky (Edgewood). The doctor who originally founded it was Dr. Richard Lenaghan but since he retired on 9/1/10, it is now Dr. Weckenbrock. It is a great place to go with a staff that TRULY cares for the patients well-being. They prescribe phentermine 37.5 mg (dispensed in office) along with other similar weight loss meds for those who may not like or tolerate phentermine. The initial appointment waiting list is currently about one month but is really and honestly worth the wait to have such a caring staff support & motivate throughout your weight loss progress. Many patients come from Ohio or Indiana due to other patients referrals from their own experience and success and it is TOTALLY LEGIT!! It's a very successful, maintainable lifestyle change while participating in the program and after achieving your goal. The number is (859) 371-4555. If this message has helped at least one person out there who truly needs & wants help losing weight & is ready to do it, then it was worth my time to type this. smile. Have a wonderful day, everyone!!!

Adipex IS a "category C" drug as well as a schedule 4 drug. The category is information about the drug affects pregnancy. The schedule is information of accepted medical benefits and level of possible abuse or addiction.

Category C- it has not been tested and is not known how it will affect the pregnancy or if it crosses the placenta
Schedule IV- category of drugs that have less potential for abuse or addiction than those of Schedules I, II, and III. Included are diazepam and chloral hydrate

Category A, B, C, D and X drugs.
Relative only to woman who are pregnant.
They shouldn't be sniffing around here.

Schedule 1, 2, 3, and 4 drugs.
That determines how f*cked up you are.
It can also determine the level of trouble you're in if they're in your possession without prescription.
Phentermine is a Schedule 4 drug and the least worrisome.

Hi Manda25,

Those side-effects are not unheard of, but they are rare. A 'sense of well-being' is a better description that a majority of users report. If I didn't get that sense of well-being, I would ask my doc for Bontril, Didrex, Tenuate, etc. It may be your personal reaction to phen, or symptoms of something else going on with your body. I wouldn't continue taking phen, under your circumstances.

Hi Canada,
Don't use it myself, but there is a website for duromine mentioned about 1/3 from the top. Haven't heard anything about that particular site lately (the last 2-3 months) but for more than a year, no one was ripped off. And strangely enough, no seizures in Australia, which is notorious for catching parcels at the border. If they dare to ship to Australia, they surely will ship to Canada.
