Phentermine Withdrawal

Phentermine Withdrawal

Phentermine should only be taken for twelve weeks at a time.

This recommendation is related to the active ingredient’s strong potential for addiction and abuse, as well as a lack of research on the long-term effects of this medication ( 1 ). Plus, limiting use to “a few weeks” minimizes patients’ risk of dependency, tolerance, and withdrawal.

Unfortunately, some people still experience withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking phentermine – even after a relatively short course of treatment.
