How Can I Qualify For Phentermine?
Phentermine is a prescription medication used as an appetite suppressant to assist with weight loss. Whether you qualify for phentermine is determined by a healthcare professional based on various criteria. Here are the general guidelines:
- A healthcare professional might prescribe phentermine if you have obesity, indicated by a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher.
- If you have a BMI of 27 or above and have at least one weight-related medical condition, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes, you might also be considered.
Before prescribing phentermine, the healthcare provider will typically review your medical history to ensure that the drug is safe for you. They’ll check for:
- History of cardiovascular diseases (e.g., coronary artery disease, stroke, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension).
- History of drug abuse.
- If you’re taking certain medications that can interact with phentermine.
Since phentermine can lead to addiction, a healthcare professional might evaluate for a history of drug or substance abuse.
Phentermine is not recommended if you are pregnant or nursing.
Can Telemedicine Prescribe Phentermine?
Yes! At Weight Wise we use telemedicine to prescribe phentermine, but there are a few things to consider:
Firstly, the rules for telemedicine vary depending on where you live. In some places, it’s allowed to prescribe controlled substances like phentermine through virtual consultations, while in others, it’s not. It’s essential to be aware of both state and federal guidelines that might affect this.
Secondly, even if telemedicine prescriptions are allowed, a thorough online evaluation by the doctor is crucial. They’ll determine if phentermine is suitable for you, ensuring there aren’t any medical reasons you shouldn’t take it.
Lastly, if you’re prescribed phentermine, regular check-ins with your healthcare provider are important due to the medication’s potential side effects and the need for proper monitoring. Also, there might be specific rules about how the prescription is sent to your pharmacy.

The amount of weight one can lose with phentermine varies depending on individual factors like starting weight, diet, level of physical activity, and overall health. On average, when combined with a low-calorie diet and exercise, one might expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week (as guidelined as safe by the CDC). However, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare provider for realistic and personalized weight loss goals.

When taking phentermine, it’s advisable to avoid foods that are high in calories, sugars, and unhealthy fats. Additionally, one should minimize caffeine intake, as phentermine can increase heart rate and caffeine can exacerbate this effect. Foods high in sodium should also be reduced as they can cause water retention. Always follow the dietary recommendations provided by your healthcare provider.
How To Not Gain Weight After Stoping Phentermine?
After stopping phentermine, it’s essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid regaining weight. This includes following a balanced diet, continuing with regular physical activity, setting and sticking to regular meal times, and monitoring your weight regularly. Engaging in behavior modification or joining a support group might also be beneficial.

Phentermine can cause insomnia in some individuals. To help with sleep:
- Take phentermine earlier in the day, preferably in the morning.
- Avoid caffeine or other stimulants in the afternoon and evening.
- Establish a regular sleep routine, going to bed and waking up at the same time each day.
- Create a calm sleeping environment, eliminating distractions and using techniques like reading or listening to calming music.
What Is The Difference Between Adderall and Phentermine?
Both Adderall and phentermine are stimulant medications, but they are used for different purposes. Adderall is primarily prescribed to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and contains amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. Phentermine, on the other hand, is used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. While both drugs can increase heart rate and blood pressure, they work on different neurotransmitters in the brain and have different side effect profiles. Always consult with a healthcare professional before starting or stopping any medication.
