Phentermine, an amphetamine-like prescription medication used to suppress appetite, can aid in weight loss by decreasing hunger and making you feel full longer.
If you’re overweight, Phentermine might be a good option for you.
Phentermine is intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan including healthy eating and physical activity, much like other weight-loss medications. It has been proven effective for short-term weight loss when used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and exercise.

Research on Effectiveness
Multiple studies have proven that Phentermine can help with weight-loss. The expected average weight loss with phentermine use is 5% of your initial body weight. Yet, over 12 weeks, it can be as high as 10%.
In a meta-analysis of six studies, individuals who took the average dose of 27.5 mg of Phentermine for 13 weeks lost an average of 13.9 pounds compared to 6.2 pounds in placebo groups.
Studies have shown that in users of Phentermine, weight loss translated to a significant decrease in waist circumference, improved insulin sensitivity, and blood sugar control, as well as favorable effects on triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
While phentermine can be a powerful weight loss aid, the only proven way to shed weight and to keep it off in the long run is adopting healthy lifestyle behaviors.
Monthly weigh-ins and blood pressure checks required via Telehealth or in the Bend office.
Take Phentermine by mouth once a day, taken before breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after breakfast. Avoid taking the dose too late in the day to prevent insomnia or difficulty falling or staying asleep.
