Phentermine 37.5–Effective or Deadly?


I was recently asked to write an article on Phentermine 37.5 and avoid talking about the negative side effects. “Actually, if you could not mention them at all, that’d be great, mmkay?”

What is Phentermine? Is phentermine safe? Should I take it?

Well, as a previous commenter posted, you always want to talk to a physician about your health or before taking a pill (you need a prescription for this stuff anyway). Phentermine 37.5 side effects include some dangerous stuff.

Side effects of phentermine 37.5 include valvular heart disease, seizure activity, psychosis, dysphoria, and primary pulmonary hypertension. Now these side effects are rare (less than 1% incidence rate), but other side effects include: dry mouth, insomnia, hypertension, impotence, urticaria, arrhythmia, tachycardia (heart attack), rashes, or headaches.

Phentermine 37.5 is supposed to activate the hypothalamus and release norepinephrine, a hormone that activates the fight-or-flight response. This creates a high stress level for your body and releases adrenaline. This release eliminates hunger. This drug is also supposed to release epinephrine, which helps break down fat cells, but taking this drug alone of course wouldn’t help. You would have to use it in addition to your exercise and diet regime.

Users who have taken Phentermine 37.5 say they gained all their weight back after they stopped taking it. Others reported irritability and sometimes they did not see any weight loss.

If you’re considering taking this drug (known on the market as Adipex-P, Duomine, Metermine, or Suprenza, etc.), please consult your doctor. This pill should only be considered for a short time use, if at all, for those who are at medical risk because of their weight. If you want to lose those last 10 lbs., continue to do so with your exercise and eating routine. If you’re overweight or obese and suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, talk to your doctor about this pill. You may not need it at all.

I don’t recommend pills of this nature only because their pharmaceutical brethren have been banned in the U.S. and in other countries. Please proceed with caution.
