Since 1959, physicians have prescribed phentermine for weight loss. With diet and exercise, this FDA approved appetite suppressant continues to help thousands of people successfully lose weight. Phentermine has been an extremely safe and effective tool to help treat overweight and obese individuals for nearly 60 years. Described as an amphetamine-like drug, Phentermine reduces hunger, allowing individuals consume fewer calories. Typically, individuals approved for this medication have a BMI (body mass index) of 27 or higher and no contraindicating health risks. Valley Medical closely monitors their patients with weekly weigh-ins and blood pressure checks. The weekly diligence has allowed Valley Medical to treat patients with BMIs as low as 25.
Phentermine may not be for everyone. As with any medication, there are side effects and risks in taking this drug. Phendimetrazine is an alternative to Phentermine. While similar to phentermine, phendimetrazine often has fewer side effects. It has been known to be a milder medication. Individuals may take phendimetrazine as little as one time a day or as many as three times per day to help curb your appetite.
If an individual is not a candidate for an appetite suppressant, another excellent alternative is HCG. HCG is a very low calorie diet coupled with the hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). Valley Medical Weight Loss offers HCG as an injectable or a sublingual tablet. HCG has proven to be a very effective diet protocol when followed precisely. For more information on HCG click here.
