Phentermine Q&A

What is phentermine?

Phentermine is a type of prescription weight loss medication used for appetite suppression, making it easier for you to reduce calories and effectively reach your goal weight. It makes you much less hungry and helps you feel full for longer time periods.

What are the benefits of phentermine?

Some of the many benefits you can expect when taking phentermine include:

  • Easier weight loss
  • Reduced appetite
  • Faster weight loss
  • Reduced hunger
  • Improved body composition

If you’ve tried dieting in the past without success, taking phentermine dramatically increases your chance of effective weight loss.

Is phentermine right for me?

Your KairWell Weight and Wellness provider lets you know if you’re a candidate for phentermine after weighing you, discussing your medical history, checking your vital signs, and completing a physical exam. 

They could recommend you undergo blood tests, heart-function testing, or other diagnostic tests before personalizing a weight loss plan that matches your needs and preferences. If you have a high body mass index and struggle with weight loss, phentermine may be a good solution for you.

You might not be a candidate for phentermine if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, glaucoma, or an overactive thyroid gland. If you’re pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding, phentermine isn’t the right option for you.

What should I expect when taking phentermine?

You can take phentermine as part of an effective, medically supervised weight loss plan if your provider prescribes it for you. Because phentermine has potential for abuse, your specialist closely monitors your treatment and follows up with you when necessary.  

Possible side effects include increased heart rate, dry mouth, sleeping changes, and nervousness, as well as constipation, dry mouth, and a prickling feeling in your feet or hands.

Take phentermine exactly as directed by your KairWell Weight and Wellness provider. They also offer custom nutrition and fitness plans tailored to your needs and lifestyle.

How often should I meet with my weight loss specialist?

After an initial assessment with KairWell Weight and Wellness providers, you meet with them in-person or virtually on a weekly basis. They discuss your progress and make changes to your medically supervised weight loss plan as needed to ensure long-lasting success.
