How To Use Phentermine

Phentermine alone does not cause patients to lose weight and keep it off over the long term. Instead, Phentermine is intended to be used as part of a weight loss plan worked out in coordination with a physician that also includes changes in diet along with exercise. The role of Phentermine in a diet and exercise plan is to reduce appetite to make it easier for patients to follow a weight loss diet and exercise regimen. The diet and exercise component of a weight loss plan is especially important because Phentermine is only approved by the FDA to be prescribed to patients for periods of less than twelve weeks. If a patient were to attempt to take Phentermine for a longer period than this they would likely develop a tolerance to Phentermine, which would greatly reduce its weight-loss promoting effects.

Phentermine Dosage

When a patient is prescribed Phentermine, their daily routine depends on whether they are taking one dose of Phentermine in the morning or three doses during the day before each meal. If they are taking a single dose in the morning, their regimen begins in the morning when they take the medication. Their physician will typically instruct them to take it either before they eat breakfast or between 1 and 2 hours after they have breakfast. Phentermine is typically taken in the morning because it is a stimulant, and taking it late in the day risks making it difficult to go to sleep. If a patient is taking Phentermine before every meal then the daily dose is split up into three doses. The way that Phentermine can be taken depends on whether it is instant release or extended release. Extended release capsules should not be broken or crushed as this interferes with the extended release mechanism and can cause the patient to experience the entire dose at once.

What if I miss phentermine dose?

If a patient misses a dose of Phentermine they should make it up when they remember they missed a dose unless it is almost time for the next dose. Patients must be careful to avoid taking a double dose of Phentermine to make up for a missed dose as this can cause harmful effects.

Do I need to diet and exercise while taking Phentermine?

In order to benefit fully from taking Phentermine, patients should follow a diet and exercise regiment. Taking Phentermine as part of such a weight loss program can make it easier for a patient to get through the early phase of changes in their diet, because their reduced calorie intake will no longer make them feel as hungry. Phentermine is also a stimulant and therefore can give patients more energy when they are exercising.

Phentermine Withdrawal Symptoms

When the patient's Phentermine regimen is complete they should wean off the medication so that they do not experience Phentermine withdrawal symptoms. These withdrawal symptoms can be unpleasant and can include cravings as well as indigestion and other gastrointestinal problems.
