Terfamex is a Mexican brand of phentermine weight loss pills that is sold primarily in Latin America. It is a branded preparation of the popular prescription appetite suppressant, phentermine hydrochloride (phentermine HCL). This medication helps overweight patients eat less and move more to lose weight faster. The medicine works by suppressing appetite and giving users an extra boost of energy.
Phentermine HCL has a chemical structure similar to amphetamines. Given its strength and addictive potential, the compound is classified as a class IV controlled substance. As a result, Terfamex (phentermine) is a short-term medication and only available under a doctor’s prescription.
Who can take Terfamex?
This medication is an option for people with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30, who are considered medically obese. It is also available for overweight patients with a BMI greater than 27 if the individual also struggles with a weight-related condition like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
However, a patient’s level of obesity is not the only factor to consider. It is also important to asses why a patient is overweight, as well as their current health status, other medications and medical history. Phentermine (Terfamex), should only be used for the management of exogenous obesity. This is a type of adiposity caused by eating and drinking more calories than you burn on a day-to-day basis. If a person is overweight for another reason (e.g. thyroid problems or another medical condition), phentermine may not be the best option. Additionally, Terfamex (phentermine) should not be used in the presence of some medical conditions or in combination with some medications
Terfamex is currently available in 15mg, 30mg and 37.5mg
