Phentermine is one of the most sought-after anorectics in Australia. It is highly effective in treating obesity or overweight, so Phentermine is very popular among obese Australians.
- The only dosage form of Phentermine available at Australian pharmacies is capsules of 15 mg, 30 mg or 40 mg.
- Phentermine is available in blisters that contain 3, 7, 30 or 300 original capsules.
Today Phentermine in Australia is produced under two brands Metermine and Duromine. The rights to manufacture and distribute these Phentermine-containing drugs on the Australian market is iNova, a subsidiary of Valeant.
In addition, iNova distributes this drug for obesity treatment in Australia under the generic name Phentermine resin. From 1992 to 2006, an Australian company Proqualix exported Phentermine under the brand Ionamin to other countries, including in the United States.
