How Does It Work?

Orally disintegrating phentermine is a stimulant that is chemically related to amphetamines. It is thought to work to reduce weight by suppressing the appetite; however, it may have other effects, such as increasing metabolism.

Clinical Effects

Orally disintegrating phentermine has not been studied in clinical trials. General studies of weight loss have demonstrated that people who combine diet and appetite-suppressing medicines, such as orally disintegrating phentermine, lose more weight than people who just reduce their daily calorie intake. However, the extra weight lost is usually less than a pound a week.
