For patients interested in both medications, they are prescribed by doctors and can be bought in pharmacies to treat obesity. Keep in mind that both meds act on your body system to suppress the hormones responsible for triggering hunger mechanisms, and this is how their intake suppresses appetite.
Another important aspect that should be taken into consideration is that Phentermine belongs to amphetamines that work by boosting the fight system of your body, thus, increasing the effects of stress hormones. This is what makes it a bit dangerous when taken on a long-term basis because its prolonged use may result in irritability, inability to rest, hypertension, insomnia and palpitations.
For example, the FDA doesn’t advise to take Phentermine for longer than twelve weeks to avoid unwanted side effects.
Besides, both drugs are not recommended for those people who have certain heart disorders because their intake may worsen their medical conditions. Phentermine and Phentramine are not advised for lactating and pregnant women, and the same can be said for patients who have narrowed vessels, glaucoma and overactive thyroid.
Before you start taking any of these meds, it’s advisable to keep in mind the following:
Which one is better?
Phentermine has higher risks involved with its intake, but it can offer more effective results, while Phentramine is more natural and can be taken for a longer period of time, but its effects are not so obvious.
Both medications work by releasing specific chemicals in your brain that help to control hunger, but the key difference is that Phentramine also contains the components that help patients boost their energy levels while being more natural. Don’t forget that you still need to exercise and stick to a certain diet plan.
