    I did a lot of reasearch and thought that it was mainly an appetite suppresant and if it had any effect on metabolism it was minimal, but now I'm not so sure.

    Does anyone know.

    The Reason I lose weight. I have to keep up with these guys!

    Phentermine is in a class of drugs called anorectics which decrease appetite by possibly changing brain levels of serotonin. Phentermine is a nervous system stimulator like the amphetamines, causing stimulation, elevation of blood pressure, and faster heart rates.
    A drug that suppresses appetite by altering the body's metabolism of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine, used in the management of obesity.

    Metabolism is the amount of energy your body burns to maintain itself. I think by increasing your heart rate and blood pressure that your body is using more energy therefore metabolism is increased.
    I have even noticed when I don't watch my calories but just what I eat I lose more on Phen. Dieting lowers your metabolism and we want it to be higher. You have to exercise to though.
