Phentermine and other anorexigenic agents
Diet and physical activity help to lose weight, and thereby prevent chronic diseases. But if obesity has already been complicated by some chronic diseases, weight loss helps to delay their progression.
Motivation to become slim must include not only a desire to look better for surrounding people, but also a desire to improve health and increase social activity.
After weight loss, a person becomes more energetic and so he has more chances to improve his social and professional skills.
Patients with a very high BMI are very difficult to keep a diet within several months. Therefore, all they can do to lose weight is to reduce the calories in their daily meals.
Anorexigenic medications were developed especially for these kind of people.
These medications can suppress appetite and help to comply with a hypocaloric diet.
The strongest anorexigenic effect is found in prescription appetite suppressants, while the safest appetite suppressants are available at pharmacies without prescription.
Phentermine is the best-known anorexigenic agent, available by prescription only. In different countries, this anorexigenic drug is known under different trade names.
- In the UK, Phentermine pills are sold under the trade name Ionamin.
- In the USA, Adipex-P is a well-advertised trade name.
- In Australia, Phentermine pills are better known under the trade name Duromine.
Each of these drugs helps to control the appetite. However, many of the listed anorexigenic drugs can pose a serious threat for health. Therefore, they are banned for sale in most countries of the world.
The most prescribed anorexigenic drug of 2014 is Phentermine. Less popular appetite suppressants are Phendimetrazine, Diethylpropion and Benzphetamine. Lorcaserin and Qsymia anti-obesity drugs were developed just a few years ago and today they are sold only in the USA.
If you want to become slim with the help of an appetite suppressant, ask your therapist to name all anorexigenic drugs that are available in your city. It is possible that appetite suppressants are sold at local pharmacies under different brand names. For instance, you can buy Phentermine diet pills under the following brand names: Ionamin, Adipex-P, Adipex Retard, Duromine, Suprenza, Metermine, Terfamex and Acxion AP.
