Wichita, KS, Oct. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Phentermine is a popular weight loss medication prescribed by doctors that works in conjunction with diet and exercise. It is characterized as a very strong central nervous system stimulant and can decrease appetite resulting in some weight loss (most often for overweight or obese individuals). While the drug may be a fast-acting option for those who’ve struggled to lose weight, Dr. Nishant Rao of Diet Doc warns, “Long-term issues range from blood pressure changes and effects on heart rate which is why Phentermine is only intended for short term use.” This is especially true since the medicine actually becomes less effective over time and is given maximum recommendation of 12-weeks.

Phentermine short-term us usage is a red flag in Dr. Rao’s view, as any weight loss aid should be beneficial in the long-term as well. “This medication is the definition of a short-term fix, and weight lost through this type of stimulant effect generally returns rapidly,” Dr. Rao states among the other potential problems to consider. “Phentermine is a type of amphetamine. So, it can make people feel very wired, jittery anxious and lead to possible insomnia.” Dieters should know that certain contraindications can occur when using Phentermine if someone has a history of heart disease, tachycardia, hypertension, congestive heart failure or a history of substance abuse. Between this and the fact that, “The medication has also never been researched long-term partly due to the development of serious side effects,” says Dr. Rao; mild stimulants such as those utilized by Diet Doc are a safer, supportive and sustainable option to trigger weight loss. Diet Doc’s exclusive medications can help patients avoid any long-term issues such as those which occur with amphetamine like stimulants.
