With so many diet pills on the market, and while many are effective, it is important to realize that no diet pill is a cure-all on its own. Phentermine is a proven appetite suppressant and works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite. Phentermine is most effective when combined with proper nutrition and adequate physical activity. Phentermine should be taken as instructed and you should never use diet pills as a substitute for cutting calories.
The Difference In Weight Loss Medications
Prescription diet pills are medications regulated by the FDA which has test information concerning side effects/risks and suggests prescribed dosages. Like all medications, prescription diet pills still have side effects but our patients rarely experience these under supervision.
Over-the-counter diet pills are categorized as food substitutes and are not FDA regulated. They are not tested to ensure safety and even unknown deadly side effects may occur from consumption.
Protect Clinic Weight Loss Medication Prescriptions
At Protect Hormone Medical Weight Management, we prescribe medications for a 30-day supply only after patients are verified to be healthy enough for such medication.
Patients are required to submit a brief “progress report” either online or in-person so we can be assured that the patient is feeling healthy and no negative reactions have occurred. We also offer multiple locations where patients can use our state-of-the-art InBody testing to track their body composition.
Medications such as Bontril, Phentermine, and Fluoxetine are prescribed to suppress a patient’s appetite, therefore, allowing them to stick to a specific food plan for weight loss. Any additional questions concerning medical weight loss medication can be presented to the specialists of Protect Clinic for complete descriptions.

The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.
Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet and/or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.
Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning but Phentermine is a great medication for weight loss maintenance once goals are met.
