Safe and effective means to regulate weight in those with metabolic disorders are required, and Phentermine fits that bill. We searched many databases regarding thermogenesis, Phentermine, and metabolism database and conducted a PubMed search for thermogenesis, Phentermine, and metabolic disorders. This article details our results for the specific drugs.
Phentermine and thermogenesis are the two most promising treatments for obesity, which is known to have many side effects. Phentermine (hydrochloride agent with the chemical name of α, α-Dimethylphenethylamine hydrochloride) is an oral prescription medicine that is taken orally by patients. Approved by the FDA, this drug’s intended use is for people with mild obesity who were not successful in weight loss with diet and exercise alone. Phentermine has been approved only in the United States and has recently become approved for use in Europe and Asia. There are no regulations in any other country.
Thermogenesis is the process of burning food for energy. Metabolism is the body’s natural process of converting food into usable energy. Thermogenesis can result from increased blood glucose levels or altered levels of the hormones leptin and ghrelin, produced by the brain. When these hormones have risen, metabolic processes speed up.
Thermogenesis can lead to dangerous side effects, including cardiac arrhythmia and heart failure. The results of research studies indicate that the long term use of Phentermine can result in the following side effects:
Side Effects can vary depending on the individual. One study showed that the combination of Phentermine and exercise had an increase in weight, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and hypertension. However, other studies showed no significant difference in these health problems. Patients taking the drug also experienced gastrointestinal issues such as nausea and vomiting. Some patients experienced constipation and diarrhea, and some patients developed a skin rash.
Should you have any concerns about the side effects of Phentermine, talk to your doctor. Make sure to tell your doctor about any medications that you are taking. Some medications, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, are contraindicated for Phentermine patients because they are diuretics.
Side effects of Phentermine have been reported as far back as 1980 but are only now being researched and monitored closely. This has created some uncertainty if there are still many unanswered questions about this drug.

As mentioned, there is a possibility that the increased energy you experience from using Phentermine may be a side effect. It is not certain whether the increased energy lasts or if it fades. In most cases, the effects of Phentermine last only during the first six weeks of use. The results may be less noticeable when used in combination with other treatments, such as exercise. Phentermine is associated with one of the most common side effects, insomnia. The sleepiness often comes from the interaction of other drugs such as alcohol, which is common among users of Phentermine. Phentermine can also affect serotonin and norepinephrine levels in the brain, causing sleepiness, fatigue, and irritability.
Side effects of Phentermine may also include depression, dizziness, nausea, and abdominal pain, but not all users experience these side effects. Allergic reactions for some people may occur, like rashes and skin rash. In rare cases, Phentermine may cause loss of appetite and vomiting. There is also a chance that Phentermine may reduce the effectiveness of antidepressants and affect diuretics’ ability to work.
To avoid Phentermine’s potential side effects, do not combine it with other drugs or medications that are not compatible with it, such as alcohol and sedatives. You should also not take this prescription if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
There is little to none, medical evidence to support Phentermine’s use when taken without medical supervision. However, it is possible to overdose on Phentermine, which can cause serious side effects. Seek medical advice if you are pregnant or nursing, have any liver or kidney disease and have any underlying medical conditions, including cancer.
