Phentermine and other appetite suppressants

Phentermine is one of the prescribed, but not the only appetite suppressant used to fight obesity. Some appetite suppressants are available without RX, but powerful anorexigenic drugs (such as Phentermine) are sold at pharmacies by prescription only.

It should be noted that some appetite suppressants have been sold at pharmacies for several decades, while others have been withdrawn from the international market just a few years after the start of retail sale.

One of the anorexigenic drugs, which has been sold for more than 50 years, is Diethylpropion.
Just as Phentermine, Diethylpropion was approved by the FDA in 1959.
Phentermine pills have first been sold in the USA under trademark Ionamin, but Diethylpropion pills – under trademark Tenuate.

Since the 70s of the last century, one more appetite suppressant – Mazindol has been sold at American pharmacies. Just as Phentermine and Diethylpropion, Mazindol is an amphetamine derivative. In the USA, Mazindol pills are more known under trademarks Mazanor and Sanorex.

Relatively new anorexigenic drugs are Lorcaserin, Sibutramine and Rimonabant. The mechanism of action of these drugs differs from the mechanism of Phentermine action. Thus, those patients who could not lose weight by Phentermine pills can replace them by the listed anorexigenic drugs.

Each of these drugs has successfully passed the clinical trials and dozens of world countries have sold it under different trademarks.

  • Sibutramine pills are more known under trademarks Reductil (in the UK), Meridia (in the USA), Ectiva (in Australia).
  • Rimonabant pills are more known under trademark Acomplia (in EU countries)
  • Lorcaserin pills are more known under trademark Belviq (in the USA)

After the results of post-marketing studies, many national health systems recognized Rimonabant and Sibutramine anorexigenic drugs unsafe and withdrawn their licenses. However, there are also countries (such as South Africa and Mexico) where Sibutramine pills are still sold.

The most prescribed anorexigenic drugs in 2014 are Phentermine, Lorcaserin and Diethylpropion. In 2012, a new combined drug Qsymia containing low doses of two active ingredients, Phentermine and Topiramate were sold in the USA.

Qsymia is considered a promising anorectic drug, sales of which grow annually. However, the lack of data about long-term effect of Qsymia on the human body forces doctors to prescribe their patients well-studied appetite suppressants (Phentermine, Diethylpropion).

If you want to lose weight by means of appetite suppressant, you can order Phentermine diet pills on online pharmacy. Before buying Phentermine online, make sure that you have no contraindications to the use of this appetite suppressant.
