Phentermine (Adipex-p) is a doctor-prescripted medicine similar to amphetamine. It is a stimulant drug or medicine that works into the brain to lessen the appetite and help in losing weight. Phentermine (Adipex-p) stimulates the central nervous system, which increases the heart rate and blood pressure and thus, decreases the appetite.

Phentermine (Adipex-p) is used together with diet and exercise to treat overweight, especially in people with risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

Phentermine (Adipex-P, Lomaira) is an amphetamine-like prescription medication It helps in weight loss by decreasing hunger or making feel full longer. Phentermine is also available in combination with topiramate for weight loss (Qsymia) or with any other drug for weight loss.

Like other doctor-prescripted weight-loss drugs, Phentermine (Adipex-p) is considered a part of an overall weight-loss plan. It is indicated for people who are over weighted, and who have failed to lose enough weight with diet and exercise alone(not for people who want to lose just a few pounds).

Phentermine is a Schedule IV drug, a classification of schedule IV is given to those drugs that have a potential for abuse, although the actual potential of this appears to be low.

Mechanism of action of Phentermine (Adipex-p)

  •    It is dosed up to 37 mg/day for short-term obesity treatment.
  •    Phentermine (Adipex-p) has some similarities in its pharmacodynamics with its parent compound, amphetamine, as both are TAAR1 agonists. The activation of TAAR1 in monoamine neurons activates the efflux, or release into the synapse, of these neurochemicals. Medically approved doses of Phentermine (Adipex-p) primarily act as a releasing agent of norepinephrine in neurons, it also releases dopamine and serotonin into synapses as well. The primary mechanism of Phentermine (Adipex-p) action in treating obesity is the reduction of hunger perception. Outside the brain, Phentermine (Adipex-p) releases norepinephrine and epinephrine also known as noradrenaline and adrenaline respectively causing fat cells to break down stored fat as well.
