Owing to habit forming properties of Phentermine and the risk of developing not pleasant withdrawal symptoms such as:
- mental dependence,
- extreme fatigue,
- insomnia or weight gain,
it’s specifically recommended not to stop the therapy with the medication suddenly.
Generally, Phentermine patients start with gradual reduction in an individualized dosage under the doctor’s supervision.
During this time and some time after stopping Phentermine completely, the body will try to gradually adjust to the changes occurring; which is why following all the doctor’s directions appears to be particularly important.
