After the start of using Phentermine diet pills, some side effects from gastrointestinal tract (GIT) may occur. When using Phentermine, the most common GIT side effects include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dry mouth
- Uncontrolled or rapid bowel movement
- Abdominal pain
As a rule, side effects from the GIT occur in the first weeks of using Phentermine diet tablets.
- The GIT side effects are not severe and eventually disappear on their own in most patients taking Phentermine.
While using Phentermine diet tablets, a low-calorie diet should be used. Phentermine directly affects the brain and can significantly reduce appetite. If the body gets insufficient amount of calories, it will use its own deposits – fatty tissue.
Diets and Phentermine diet tablets help to increase the rate of fat burning and to reduce body weight. However, imbalance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates and micronutrients may affect the GIT work. It takes some time for the stomach to get used to a diet.
When using Phentermine diet tablets, to reduce the risk of GIT side effects, it is recommended to:
Refuse to eat high-fiber foods, milk or milk products, spicy, fried or fatty foods, alcohol and drinks containing caffeine, very hot or cold food.
Use ground meat with a little fat cooked on steam, boiled rice, rusks of white bread and applesauce - in case of diarrhea.
Eat small meals 4-5 times a day. This help to reduce the burden on the gastrointestinal tract and to reduce the amount of food consumed a day.
Balanced diet can significantly improve the activity of gastrointestinal tract and accelerate the digestive process. In addition, the use of Phentermine diet tablets helps speed up metabolism that also positively affects the functioning of gastrointestinal tract.
During Phentermine use, obese patients should have breakfast.
Generally, metabolism is slowed down in the morning in all people and namely breakfast accelerates chemical reactions in the body. Obese patients should have a light breakfast. A small portion of food is sufficient to accelerate metabolism.
In order to reduce the risk of GIT side effects, patients should not increase Phentermine dosage on their own. The maximum dose of Phentermine is 37.5 mg a day. Do not take a double dose of Phentermine, even if a dose of this drug was missed.
If after the use of Phentermine diet tablets, you experience severe GIT side effects or they last a long time, the doctor may recommend you to reduce the dosage or to stop using this drug at all.
