Prescription weight loss pills also known as diet pills, are used for people who are overweight and want to lose weight. Although diet pills helps you lose weight, you will still need to focus on healthy diets and exercise to get the best results. Doctors tend to prescribe weight loss pills if a persons’ body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher.
Phentermine is meant to be used jointly with diet and exercise. It is used to care for people who are overweight or obese with health fluctuations, such as, diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure.
