Though Phentermine is a single type of weight loss drug, there are several different kinds available to ensure that you are receiving the ideal dosage for your body type, healthy, and needs for losing weight. The three dosages in which Phentermine can be purchased are in 37.5mg tablets, 30mg capsules, and 15mg capsules. Of course, Phentermine is the generic version of the medication, so it is actually available under many different manufacturer brand names. A good example of this is Adipex-P, which is a brand name version of Phentermine. This means that the imprint that you see on the pill itself will differ from one manufacture to the next, but the dosages available always remain the same.
Phentermine 37.5 tablets, which contain 37.5mg of phentermine hydrochloride, are by far the most popular form of Phentermine used among people who need to lose weight. The appearance of this pill – just like the imprint – can change from one manufacturer to the next. Typically speaking, it should look like a white tablet pill that has tiny blue speckle dots on it. However, there are exceptions. The Phentermine 37.5 produced by Purepac has everything but the blue speckles. On the other hand, the drug manufactured by Mutual Labs does have the specks, but they have more of a “painted on” appearance. The drug is the same with or without the specks because it is the white compound in which the medication can be found. The specks are there just to make the drug easier to identify.
The reason that Phentermine 37.5 is the most popular form of phentermine is because it is the highest dose available. For the people who meet the right health requirements to take this medication, this means that they will receive the greatest results in terms of reducing their appetites so that they will eat less, and boosting their energy levels so that they can exercise more.
That being said, while taking Phentermine 37.5 it is vital that healthy weight loss habits be built and maintained. It is neither recommended that you should starve yourself nor continue eating as you have been while you take the drug. Instead, eat a well balanced diet of healthy foods and build this habit into your lifestyle so that you will continue to do this after you are off the pill (which is only a short-term solution to be used over a few weeks).
For best results, eat four to six small meals throughout the day to keep your metabolism running and to stop it from slowing down – the result of starvation diets – which will only cause your body to store more fat and make you work harder to burn the fat you already have. Also, adding regular exercise into your daily routine, even if it’s just taking more stairs or going for a walk in the evenings, is critical for succeeding at losing weight. By establishing good habits around diet, portion control and exercise while taking phentermine 37.5 will ensure continued weight loss even after you stop taking the diet pill.
