phentermine consultation and prescription.

Phentermine (Adipex-P, Lomaira) is an amphetamine-like prescription medication used to suppress appetite. It can help weight loss by decreasing your hunger or making you feel full longer. Like other prescription weight-loss drugs, phentermine is intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan. It is indicated for people who are obese, and who have failed to lose enough weight with diet and exercise alone — not for people who want to lose just a few pounds.

Here at NPOD we will assess and assist you on your journey to losing weight. Nurse Practitioner McFarlane is currently in the process of losing weight herself. Losing weight as a team will provide you with the support you need. Just knowing that you are not alone can help propel you towards your weight loss goal. We understand the importance of education and a combination of wellness, nutrition, and weight loss pills can ensure the best outcome for your weight loss journey. Not only do we work toward maximizing your long-term weight loss success and health care goals, but we strive to help improve your quality of life and support you in living your best, healthy life.

During your visit, we will obtain your height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and respiration. We will obtain a thorough medical history and perform an assessment. Once phentermine is deemed as appropriate for you, a prescription will be provided along with guidance regarding food preferences that will be beneficial for losing weight.

Although phentermine is one of the most commonly prescribed weight-loss medications, it isn’t a good option if you have heart disease, high blood pressure, an overactive thyroid gland, or glaucoma. It also isn’t for women who are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
