W8MD success stories

Phendimetrazine is a prescription weight loss medication that is used as a short-term adjunct to diet and exercise in the treatment of obesity. It is classified as a sympathomimetic amine and acts as an appetite suppressant, which means that it works by decreasing the feeling of hunger.


Phendimetrazine is a controlled substance due to its potential for abuse and dependence, and is only available with a prescription from a qualified healthcare provider. It is typically recommended for use in individuals who have a BMI of 30 or higher, or a BMI of 27 or higher with the presence of weight-related comorbidities such as high blood pressure or diabetes.


As with other weight loss medications, phendimetrazine is not a standalone solution for weight loss, but is most effective when used in combination with lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and regular exercise. The medication is typically prescribed for a short period of time, usually for a few weeks to a few months, and should be closely monitored by a healthcare provider.

Side effects

Side effects of phendimetrazine can include increased heart rate, high blood pressure, dizziness, restlessness, insomnia, dry mouth, and gastrointestinal disturbances. As with any medication, it is important to discuss potential risks and benefits with a healthcare provider before starting treatment.
