Phendimetrazine is an FDA-approved medication similar to Phentermine but that may be better tolerated for some patients. Phendimetrazine is a sympathomimetic amine, which is similar to an amphetamine. It is also known as an “anorectic” or “anorexigenic” drug.
How should I take Phendimetrazine?
Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Phendimetrazine is usually taken once daily. Talk with your doctor if you experience increased hunger or if you think the medication is not working properly. Taking more of this medication will not make it more effective and can cause serious life-threatening side effects.
Phendimetrazine should be taken as prescribed by your physician. Tell your doctor if you have not lost 4 lbs. after 4 weeks of treatment. Do not stop using Phendimetrazine suddenly after long-term use or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when you stop using this medicine. Phendimetrazine stimulates the central nervous system (nerves and brain), which increases your heart rate and blood pressure and decreases your appetite.
