Phentermine belongs to a category of drugs called phenythylamine, drugs which act as neurotransmitters for the brain. Phentermine is actually an appetite suppressant that is helpful with effective weight loss. It is important to note that phentermine is recommended for short term use. This diet pill is meant for people who are clinically overweight or obese, and have a high risk of weight related medical conditions.

There are a lot of drugs that work with the brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, like anti-depressants and stimulants. Phentermine also works with neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemicals in our nervous system and brain that act as messengers, transmitting electrical messages between the cells (neurons) of the nervous system or brain. Some people have naturally low levels of neurotransmitters. This condition can lead to diseases like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, obesity, and more.

There are certain neurotransmitters in the brain, called catecholamines which are released when Phentermine stimulates the neuron bundles in our brain. These neuron bundles include: Dopamine, Epinephrine and Norepinephrine. Epinephrine is formally known as adrenalin and norepinephrine as noradrenalin.

Phentermine affects the hypothalamus gland in the central nervous system of the brain. It works by disrupting the transmission of signals from brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters leaving the brain to believe that your stomach is full. It's believed that this is because Phentermine affects leptin levels in the brain. Leptin is a hormone secreted by the fat cells, and it regulates body weight by acting upon the hypothalamus gland in our nervous system. This suppresses you appetite and helps you burn body fat from the adipose tissue, a tissue specialized for fat storage. It is theorized that phentermine can raise levels of leptin which signals that "full" feeling in your stomach. It is also theorized that increased levels of the catecholamine are partially responsible for halting another chemical messenger know as neuropeptideY. This chemical initiates eating, decreases energy expenditure, and increases fat storage.
