“I lost 25 lbs on the pills (Phentermine and Topamax). At first I had my doubts.
Now I have the energy to work out. Soon I will start Semaglutide injections as told by Dr. Malhotra
Truly, it makes me feel happy and confident. ”
“It is hard to believe for me that with just the pills and Dr. Malhotra’s diet advice I have lost more that 50 lbs”
“I have lost 50 lbs since March when I started Phentermine. I first met Dr. Malhotra in 2014 and really like him. He is the best. I’m so happy with the weight loss and have to shop for new clothes though. It’s easy to order medications online from his clinic. It is reasonable and affordable!”

How does Phentermine work ?
It is classified as a sympathomimetic amine and functions as an appetite suppressant.
Here’s how phentermine works:
1. Appetite Suppression: Phentermine stimulates the release of certain chemicals in the brain, such as norepinephrine, which activates the “fight or flight” response. This activation leads to a decrease in appetite and an increased feeling of fullness. By reducing hunger and cravings, phentermine helps individuals consume fewer calories and supports weight loss efforts.
2. Increased Energy Expenditure: Phentermine also stimulates the release of adrenaline, which can increase energy expenditure and metabolic rate. This effect may contribute to weight loss by burning more calories.
3. Central Nervous System Stimulation: Phentermine acts on the central nervous system, specifically the hypothalamus, to reduce hunger signals and increase satiety. It affects certain neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and serotonin, which are involved in regulating appetite and mood.
How Long can I take Phentermine ?
It’s important to note that phentermine is typically prescribed for short-term use, usually a few weeks to a few months, due to concerns about potential side effects and the risk of developing tolerance to its effects
Is Phentermine Safe for me to use ?
It is FDA approved medication but can have side effects.
Common side effects of Phentermine can include:
1. Increased Heart Rate: Phentermine is a stimulant, and one of its effects is an increase in heart rate. Some people may experience a faster or irregular heartbeat while taking phentermine.
2. Elevated Blood Pressure: Phentermine can raise blood pressure levels, and individuals with pre-existing hypertension should be cautious when using this medication. Regular monitoring of blood pressure is recommended during treatment.
3. Insomnia: Phentermine is known to have stimulating effects on the central nervous system, which can lead to difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Taking phentermine too late in the day may exacerbate insomnia.
4. Dry Mouth: Phentermine can cause a reduction in saliva production, leading to a dry or uncomfortable sensation in the mouth. Staying hydrated and chewing sugar-free gum may help alleviate this side effect.
5. Gastrointestinal Issues: Some individuals may experience digestive disturbances such as constipation, diarrhoea, or stomach discomfort while taking phentermine.
6. Restlessness or Nervousness: Phentermine’s stimulating effects can sometimes lead to feelings of restlessness, nervousness, or anxiety in some individuals.
7. Dizziness or Headache: These symptoms may occur as a result of changes in blood pressure or the stimulant effects of phentermine.
It’s important to remember that not everyone will experience these side effects, and the severity and frequency can vary among individuals. If experience any bothersome or persistent side effects, it’s recommended to stop the medication and contact us immediately.
Is Topamax safe for me to use ?
It is FDA approved medication but can have side effects.
1. Cognitive and Psychiatric Effects: Topamax can cause cognitive difficulties, including difficulty with concentration, memory problems, and confusion. It may also lead to mood changes, such as depression, anxiety, or irritability. Some individuals may experience changes in thinking or behavior.
2. Dizziness and Coordination Issues: Topamax can cause dizziness, unsteadiness, or problems with coordination, which may increase the risk of falls or accidents.
3. Tingling or Numbness: Some people may experience a sensation of tingling or numbness, often in the extremities, such as the hands or feet.
4. Fatigue or Sleepiness: Topamax can cause drowsiness or fatigue in some individuals, which may affect daily activities or alertness.
5. Vision Problems: Topamax can affect vision and may cause blurred vision, double vision, or other changes in visual perception.
6. Loss of Appetite or Weight Loss: Topamax is known to cause a decrease in appetite, which can lead to weight loss in some individuals.
7. Digestive Issues: Topamax can cause gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, or stomach pain.
8. Kidney Stones: There have been reports of an increased risk of kidney stones in individuals taking Topamax. Maintaining adequate hydration and following a recommended fluid intake may help reduce this risk.
