Learn more about PHENTERMINE for weight loss
Phentermine can be very effective when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
With so many diet pills on the market and while many are effective it is important to realize that no diet pill is a cure all on its own. Phentermine must be combined with other factors such as diet and exercise in order to be truly effective. Phentermine works best when it is combined with proper nutrition and adequate physical activity. Phentermine should be taken as instructed and you should never use diet pills as a substitute for cutting calories.
The Difference In Weight Loss Medications
Prescription diet pills are medications regulated by the FDA, which has test information concerning side effects, risks and suggests prescribed dosages. Like all medications, prescription diet pills still offer side effects but our patients rarely experience these under supervision.
Over-the-Counter Diet Pills are categorized as food substitute and are not FDA regulated. They are not tested to ensure safety and unknown even deadly side effects may occur from consumption.

When used in conjunction with diet, exercise and behavior therapy, phentermine may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and exercise.
How does Phentermine work?

The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.
Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet and/or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.
