Statistics show that the number of people who are suffering from obesity and weight problems is growing. Sometimes, modern life makes it hard to get rid of the weight you want to, despite your best efforts. That's where appetite suppressants come into play. You may find that appetite suppressants are just the thing needed to kick-start your weight loss and help you start reaching your goals. Appetite suppressants are currently the most used drug for weight loss. And when taken correctly and combined with the right lifestyle changes, can produce dramatic results.
Appetite suppressants promote weight loss by making the body believe it is full. They quite literally block out hunger sensations by increasing two chemicals in the body - serotonin, and catecholamine. These two brain chemicals affect mood and appetite. Most people find it very difficult to eat less when they are hungry, and appetite suppressants help in overcoming that emotional barrier. Taking the right appetite suppressant for your needs while consuming fewer calories usually leads to immediate success.
Not all appetite suppressants are the same. When you work with transformyou, we go over your options and what appetite suppressant is right for you, your body and lifestyle, taking all guesswork out of it.
Appetite Suppressant Options
It's always a good idea to know that there are options when it comes to appetite suppressants. Not all of them are effective or safe for consumption which is why it is essential to consult with a medical weight loss physician when considering appetite suppressants. Phentermine (Adipex), Phendimetrazine (Bontril), Benzphetamine (Didrex), Diethylproprion (Tenuate), and Phentermine/Topiramate (Qsymia) are all appetite suppressants used for weight loss. They are in the Sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants and are most commonly prescribed for the short-term management of excess weight.
When used in conjunction with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy, phentermine and phendimetrazine may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and to exercise. Phentermine is a long-acting appetite suppressant (lasts all day) and Phendimetrazine and Diethylproprion are made both as a short and long-acting appetite suppressant (lasts a half day to a full day). Benzphetamine lasts 6-10 hours.
The newest appetite suppressant medication is called Qsymia. It was released in September 2012. It is a combination of two medications, phentermine, and topiramate. Topiramate is used because it helps decrease hunger and increase weight loss. It works together with the phentermine to promote weight loss.
Phentermine, Phendimetrazine, Benzphetamine, Diethylproprion and Qsymia shouldn't be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, they must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise. Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning.
