Have you struggled to lose weight? Have you tried weight loss programs in the past and failed? Do you have a slow metabolism? Are the years catching up with you? Are you frustrated with the same old advice — ‘Just eat less and exercise more.”? You may be a candidate for medical weight management including prescription medications, such as phentermine. Medications, like phentermine, must be prescribed by a licensed medical doctor, and they help to:
Increase energy levels
Speed up sluggish metabolism
Facilitate more efficient and permanent body fat loss.
Phentermine is available only by prescription to help curb appetite for short-term treatment of obesity.
At Start Clinic we prescribe medications for those who meet certain medical criteria. The most common of these medications is phentermine. It is an effective appetite suppressant that affects the central nervous system and is approved by the FDA to treat overweight and obese patients together with diet and exercise.
Phentermine helps you lose weight by:
This weight loss aid targets fat loss by curbing cravings, (especially for carbohydrates) while preserving lean body mass. Dosage is individualized to obtain an adequate response with the lowest of four available doses that prove to be effective for you. The usual adult dose is one capsule daily as prescribed by a physician, taken either before breakfast or one to two hours after breakfast.
At Start Clinic, we prefer to use phentermine or phendimetrazine due to the lower cost and longer history of safe use. Often times, primary care physicians are easily seduced by pharmaceutical sales reps to prescribe the latest and greatest (and usually, most expensive!) new drug when medical studies clearly show a simple inexpensive diuretic can perform the same job.
Keep in mind that phentermine is a medication and must be prescribed by a doctor. Do not be fooled by non-prescription imitations with names that resemble phentermine – it is impossible to buy phentermine online in the United States.
If you’ve been plagued by unstoppable cravings, slow weight loss and stubborn, unmovable fat then phentermine may be your solution.
