Appetite Suppressants

Appetite suppressants are medications that help reduce your hunger and contribute to a decrease in food intake, facilitating weight loss. 

In certain instances, even with an optimal diet and exercise regimen, you may need additional help for your weight loss. Appetite suppressants help curb your hunger, enabling you to control your food consumption and address problems such as obesity.

At Forever Young, we adopt a holistic approach to weight loss that prioritizes your overall health throughout your weight loss journey. Our strategy involves the use of weight loss medications and supplements, along with personalized diet plans and physical activities.

If you struggle with managing your appetite and eating habits, our team may prescribe appetite suppressants to support you on your weight loss journey.

How Appetite Suppressants Work

Hunger, appetite, and energy levels are complex processes that regulate the food intake within your body. The interaction between your nervous system, pancreas, body fat, and the stomach regulates these processes. 

Appetite suppressants operate within the framework of these complex processes to help in your weight loss journey. These medications intervene with your appetite by selectively blocking or increasing specific hormones, neurotransmitters, and/or peptides. 

Each type of appetite suppressant operates uniquely. They may reduce your hunger or enhance the feeling of fullness by targeting distinct chemicals within your body's regulatory system.


Phentermine is a prescription medication that helps you lose weight by suppressing your appetite and prolonging the sensation of fullness in your stomach. 

It is a stimulant drug that affects your central nervous system by increasing the release of norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is a neurotransmitter associated with appetite control.

By decreasing your appetite and cravings, phentermine can accelerate and enhance your weight loss outcomes.  


Adipex-P is one of the most commonly prescribed versions of phentermine. It is prescribed for short-term use as part of a weight loss program. 

Our team at Forever Young may prescribe you Adipex-P along with a comprehensive weight loss plan that includes an optimal diet, exercise regime, and lifestyle changes

Side Effects

When using Phentermine, you may experience certain side effects. These side effects may differ from person to person, and their intensity typically depends on your health status.

Common side effects of Phentermine include: 

  • Sleeplessness
  • Nervousness
  • Constipation
  • Dry Mouth
  • Unpleasant taste
  • Diarrhea
  • Mild nausea 

It's important to note that these side effects are rarely serious and can be effectively managed through lifestyle adjustments or by incorporating vitamins and supplements into your routine.

Getting Started with Phentermine

We initiate your weight loss journey with a comprehensive physical examination to assess your overall health. Our team will evaluate your vitals, weight, and other measurements to gain insights into your body composition. This examination may also involve blood testing for a thorough understanding of your health status.

Once we ascertain that Phentermine is a suitable component for your weight loss program, we will provide you with medication guidelines. The dosage and frequency will be tailored according to your health status and weight loss goals.

As we closely monitor your progress, the dosage may be adjusted at various points during the process. 

Phentermine Eligibility

If you are currently dealing with or have a history of the following conditions, Phentermine may not be suitable for you. 

  • Glaucoma or thyroid issues
  • Severe heart and blood pressure problems
  • Advanced coronary artery disease 
  • History of drug abuse
  • High blood pressure

In such cases, your provider will explore alternative options to Phentermine.
