Phentermine is a stimulant that is similar to an amphetamine. Phentermine is an appetite suppressant that affects the central nervous system. This drug is habit forming and has a lot of unwanted side effects. I am not a Dr. but I also have weight to lose. I chose the Weight Watchers program. I have successfully lost 30lbs in the last 3 months. Its not a diet but a way of life. It slowly teaches you how to eat right. I know it seems taking a drug is the cure all but medications can do more harm to your liver and organs. Please way all options, and do research on that medication.

first go for reasonfor weight gain , if it the result of some disease then this need be checked, get your thyroid levels checked and look for regular periods, if these are ok then you can start with a safe herbal preparation medhohar guggul 2 tablets tds. Have only meals and nothing but meals. No cold drinks no fast food and no extra sugar. Be regular with brisk exercise daily. note the changes and report.
