Recommended Phentermine Prescription by Dr Eric Goldberg.
Phentermine has been available on prescription for the short term management of obesity since it first received FDA since the late 1950’s. It is recommended that phentermine only be prescribed short-term, typically a three month period. In order to monitor patients, monthly consultations are recommended by Dr Goldberg . Following the 12-week prescription, patients are often instructed to take a 4-week break and may then be prescribed phentermine for a further 12-week period if it is deemed necessary.
How Phentermine Effects the Body
Phentermine is only available via prescription due to being classified as a controlled substance, recognized as having a structure similar to amphetamine. Like amphetamine, phentermine increase alertness and energy levels, reduce hunger and minimize cravings.
For many patients taking phentermine, the initial effects can be quite aggressive, including feeling ‘wired’ and unable to sleep, with little to no appetite and a variety of side effects. Over time these side effects reduce, as do the effects of appetite suppression and energy boosting. Best results are achieved by taking Phentermine in the morning and on an empty stomach. You may have to adjust the time that you take the medication, depending on how it reacts with you. If you feel that you are hungry in the evening, then you may want to take the Phentermine closer to noon. If you are unable to sleep at night, then you might want to take it earlier in the day. Our clinic can carefully guide you so that you can experience the best possible outcomes.
Phentermine is intended to be a short-term aid to help obesity, which, if used correctly, should ensure long term weight loss through the incorporation of healthy lifestyle habits. During the phentermine break, Dr Goldberg will monitor whether patients are able to continue or sustain weight loss without phentermine, which is key for long term success following the end of their phentermine prescription.
