Phentermine for Weight Loss


Even with a regular diet and exercise routine, sometimes the weight just will not stay off. If you are struggling with this problem, you are not alone! For most people, the hardest part of a weight loss journey is keeping the weight from coming back, even when actively trying. At NexGen Health and Wellness, we combine healthier lifestyles and prescription weight loss medications for a mutually beneficial program that keeps the weight off! 

When used with healthier lifestyles, phentermine is a safe and effective tool for reaching your weight loss goals! 


What is Phentermine? 


Phentermine is a prescription-only medication for aiding in weight loss. This drug has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for over 60 years and has proven effective when used in conjunction with a weight loss program, such as diet and exercise.  


When using phentermine for weight loss, this medication stimulates the release of norepinephrine, or adrenaline, in the brain. Adrenaline is naturally produced by adrenal glands in the body and is released in “fight or flight” situations, as well as everyday activities such as exercise. The release of this hormone subdues appetite, increases metabolism functions, and increases circulation throughout the body, making it the perfect prescription weight loss addition to diet and exercise programs! The everyday use of adrenaline in the body only sticks around for a few minutes maximum and is triggered in special conditions, but prescribed phentermine will keep those hormone responses going to provide maximum benefits for your weight loss journey. 


How Much Weight Will I Lose? 

 The short answer is it depends! Because medical weight loss differs for each person, there is no concrete answer. However, results have shown that individuals will lose roughly twice the amount of weight from only utilizing diet and exercise plans. For example, if you are losing 5 pounds a month with only a healthier routine, you could expect to lose 10 pounds from both phentermine and diet and exercise, but this is not results vary from person to person.  

 As phentermine use continues, expect your weight loss to start larger, and then level out over time. Phentermine is recommended for short-term use and to get individuals closer to an ideal weight faster, and then maintain that weight as time goes on. Results are especially seen in people that have attempted weight loss with diet and exercise and have not seen much progress.  Using phentermine alongside traditional plans is typically the catalyst that most people need to start losing! If you are feeling hopeless, give NexGen Health and Wellness a call to get back the body that you deserve!
