Anorectic Phentermine is indicated for use in patients with alimentary obesity who cannot control their appetite. Increased appetite, a feeling of constant hunger lead to overeating and, as a result, weight gain.
The recognized international criterion for assessing overweight and obesity is body mass index (BMI).
Phentermine is prescribed for adults and adolescents aged 16 and older. In some cases, after assessing benefits and risks, Phentermine can be used to treat overweight in adolescents aged 12 and older, as well as in geriatric patients.
