August 11, 2012

Appetite SuppressantPhentermine is in the Sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants (used for the short-term management of exogenous obesity.) For the last 7 years Tracy Van Horn RN, MN,FNP-C has specialized in medically supervised weight loss programs with appetite suppression therapy every month. She uses phentermine in conjunction with recommendations for diet, exercise, and behavior therapy. Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite.

Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise. Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning. Patients taking phentermine are required to see Tracy every month for supervision of weightloss and stimulate side effect monitoring.
