Prescription appetite suppressants

These medications control the appetite and are designed to get patients jumpstarted on the diet and weight loss program. When taken under medical supervision, these medications are safe.

Phentermine (Adipex)

This is the most commonly prescribed appetite suppressant. It is also the most likely to have the potential side effects like insomnia, jitteriness, increases in blood pressure and pulse rate. Phentermine is considered to be long acting, therefore it is taken in the early morning and should offer appetite suppression for the entire day and wear off towards bed time.

Bontril (Phendimentrazine)

Bontril is similar in action to Phentermine. Bontril has the least potential for side effects and is the gentlest on the cardiovascular system. It is available in both long acting and short acting form.

Belviq

Belviq is considered to be long acting, non-stimulant appetite suppressant. This medication promotes satiety and is considered a long term obesity treatment. This medication is ideal for those who cannot tolerate stimulant side effects of other weight loss medications.
