Terfamex Fentermina 30mg is an appetite suppressant of a pharmacological group of amphetamines and phenethylamines. This medication was approved to help reduce weight in obese patients for short-term use and combination with exercise, diet and behavior changes. It usually prescribed to individuals who have health risks due to their weight.
Terfamex Fentermina 30mg is used together with diet and exercise to treat obesity (overweight) in people with risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.
Why is Terfamex Fentermina 30mg prescribed?
This medication is used to reduce body weight in obese or overweight patients. Often it prescribed in a regimen of weight reduction based on exercise, behavioral modification, and caloric restriction in the management of exogenous obesity for obese or overweight patients with the presence of other risk factors (e.g., hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia). Phentermine works by directly affecting the area of the brain that controls your appetite making you feel less hungry.
Dosage and administration
Terfamex Fentermina 30mg is recommended to use Terfamex only in the short term (usually about 12 weeks) and then other non-pharmacological strategies for weight loss and healthy dieting and exercise. However, recommendations limiting its use for short-term treatment are controversial. One reason for the restriction to 12 weeks is drug tolerance, as Terfamex loses its appetite-suppressing effects after the body adjusts. On the contrary, it has been shown that this drug did not lose its effect in a trial of 36 weeks. Due to the risk of insomnia, it is recommended taking Terfamex before breakfast or 1-2 hours later.
