Pharmacological Phentermine versus Herbal Phentermine
Many people turn to herbal and natural methods of losing weight thinking that it’s the safer, more effective route. What they don’t know is that there is really no guarantee that natural is safer considering that these products don’t need to get approval from the FDA. Basically, only very few herbal weight loss supplements can be considered safe and effective.
Save for the fake and poorly formulated herbal weight loss supplements, genuine herbal Phentermine is primarily made from green tea, L-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid, black tea, black pepper, and biotin. These ingredients have substances that promote faster digestion, suppress hunger, boost energy, and burn calories. They are generally great for losing weight; however, they’re not without side effects.
Herbal Phentermine is not 100 percent safe and without side effects. As a matter of fact, it causes similar side effects as non-prescription weight loss drug Phentramin-D. Side effects caused by herbal Phentermine include nervousness, hyperactivity, sleeping difficulties, tremors, dizziness, and upset stomach. Many of these side effects however are temporary and manageable.
Pharmacological Phentermine may include both the prescription (Rx Phentermine) and non-prescription types (OTC Phentramin-D). The primary effect of pharmacological Phentermine is suppressed or controlled hunger. It makes the person feel full, when he’s not eaten so much or hasn’t eaten anything yet.
Pharmacological Phentermine is made of synthetically created chemicals that are known for their hunger suppressing properties. Rx Phentermine may be marketed as non-amphetamine hunger suppressant, but its compounds are similar to amphetamines, so it produces more or less the same serious side effects including blurred vision and anxiety.
Meanwhile, Phentramin-D doesn’t contain chemicals similar to amphetamines. It merely mimics the way Phentermine works – suppressing hunger – so its side effects are less threatening and non-chronic. What’s more interesting to know is that Phentramin-D is FDA-approved, just like its prescription counterpart Phentermine. So it passed certain standards of quality.
Overall, both herbal and pharmacological Phentermine drugs have side effects. Some herbal alternatives aren’t FDA-approved, so there’s no telling about their safety and effectiveness. Rx Phentermine has serious side effects and needs doctor’s prescription. OTC Phentramin-D has minor side effects and doesn’t need doctor’s prescription. Rx Phentermine and OTC Phentramin-D are FDA-approved.
