Phentermine Blue is a prescription diet pill that is available only to individuals who are obese, who are at an increased risk of certain severe health conditions because of their extra weight, and who have been prescribed this medication by a licensed doctor.
This drug is a generic version of the diet pill, though there are also brand name versions available. These Phentermine Blue capsules are unique among the various versions of the drug because they are absorbed by the body in a gradual way due to the time release formula. This ensures that the effect of the drug will be longer lasting than its tablet alternative.
The Phentermine Blue capsules are made up of 30mg of the phentermine hydrochloride medication. This is a sympathomimetic amine that stimulates the central nervous system in order to generate an appetite suppression effect in the body. They contain the same medication as the tablet form of the drug, only the absorption is slower throughout the day. Therefore, the results that can be expected from both forms are the same, it is only the manner of their delivery that is different.
It is easy to recognize Phentermine Blue capsules, which are oblong shaped with one half in a medium blue, and the other half is clear. On the clear side, you can see the white and light blue micro beads that are contained within the capsule. Depending on the manufacturer, there may be a name or number stamped onto the pill.
Phentermine Blue is typically taken first thing in the morning, before breakfast is consumed. It is to be swallowed with a full glass of water, on an empty stomach. It is important for this pill to be swallowed whole, without breaking, cutting, chewing, crushing it or otherwise opening the capsule. The reason is that because the pill was designed for a gradual release, opening it up before swallowing would permit too much of the medication to enter the blood stream at one time. This could lead to strong and highly uncomfortable side effects and could even put the dieter’s health at risk. If you have been prescribed this drug, and you are unsure of the way that it should be taken, make sure to speak with the prescribing doctor or a pharmacist in order to have the directions clarified.
It is also important to know that there are some side effects associated with the use of Phentermine Blue. Moreover, there is also a risk of addiction linked with using this drug.
