Usually, Phentermine drug is prescribed to patients who were diagnosed obesity. In most countries of the world, obesity is diagnosed when a patient’s body mass index (BMI) is 30 or more.If patients have some comorbidities, Phentermine weight loss pills can be prescribed as follows:
In the USA, Phentermine (like Adipex or Suprenza) is prescribed in BMI 27-29.9.
In Australia and New Zealand, Phentermine (for example, Duromine or Metermine) is prescribed in BMI 25-29.9.
People with certain disorders need to lose all extra pounds in order to speed up the treatment or stop the progression of these disorders. In this case, doctors recommend using Phentermine appetite suppressant.

- Impaired glucose tolerance – is one of the main factors, increasing the cardiometabolic risks.
High blood pressure (hypertension) and its symptoms:
Systolic blood pressure over 140 mm Hg.
Diastolic blood pressure over 90 mm Hg.
Other diseases, associated with obesity and extra weight may include:

However, Phentermine is not prescribed for all the comorbidities.
If an obese patient has very high blood pressure, pulmonary hypertension, moderate or severe heart disease, then Phentermine drug is contraindicated for him.
