Phentermine

There are many drugs for obesity that have come and gone, but only a few have stood the test of time. Phentermine is one that has been around since the 1950s. Phentermine has stood out as a safe and useful drug for weight loss. The answer to the question how does Phentermine work is actually a very simple one. For many patients at RMI Medspa and Weight Loss Center this is a great addition to help control your appetite.

One of the biggest problems a dieter faces when trying to lose weight is overeating. There are many reasons why people do this. Some are emotional eaters. This means they eat to soothe feelings that they do not know how to handle otherwise. There are others that overeat because they have insulin problems that cause huge surges and drops in blood sugar. When these drops occur, the body tells itself that more glucose is needed so more food needs to be ingested. The answer to how does Phentermine work lies in the quest to figure out how to stop such people from eating too much food and gaining more weight.

How does Phentermine work?

It goes straight to the source of the problem within the brain that regulates hunger and what the body does when it thinks that it needs more food. This drug goes to the hypothalamus part of the brain to tell it to stop sending out hunger signals. Essentially, it releases nor-epinephrine, a neurotransmitter that will tell the brain food is not needed by triggering what is known as the ‘flight or fight’ response. Many times, those who are obese are getting hunger signals for reasons other than a real need for food. This allows a dieter to have more control over what they eat and it may also encourage them to move forward with other aspects of weight loss like exercise and better food choices over all.

How Phentermine works can also be answered by explaining that this drug triggers the release of small amounts of adrenaline and epinephrine in the brain. When this happens, the body can begin to breakdown stored fat reserves and may trigger small surges in metabolism. Those things can help, but are not the reason that people rely on Phentermine when they want help controlling hunger so they can lose weight.

What if I am currently taking medications for health issues I have? Can I still take the appetite suppressant?
