Phentermine capsules are different from the tablet form of the pills, even though they have the same benefits and drawbacks from the medication that they contain. That said, even though the medicine within them is the same, many doctors prefer this form over the tablets for certain patients. The reason is that the design of the pill allows the medication to be released more gradually into the bloodstream, throughout the day. This process occurs instead of allowing the drug to dissolve and be absorbed into the body right away. The result is a longer lasting effect, which doesn’t wear off as quickly.
At the same time, though, this does not imply that Phentermine capsules are better than the tablets in their ability to assist a dieter with weight loss. Each has its strengths and weaknesses, so it all depends on what is right for a given patient.
The Phentermine capsules work by providing appetite suppression and an energy boost through the stimulation of the central nervous system. This produces a reaction in the hypothalamus region of the brain that leads to an increase in both the heart rate and blood pressure. In most individuals, this causes hunger pangs and cravings to be considerably reduced. Since these pills are prescribed along with a reduced calorie diet and an exercise program, those main benefits can be exceptionally helpful toward successfully achieving a goal weight.
Unlike the tablets, it is important to note that Phentermine capsules must be swallowed whole. They have to be swallowed with a full glass of water and can never be cut, chewed, crushed or broken in any other way before they are taken. If a pill is broken, it should be disposed of by returning it to the pharmacist or otherwise safely eliminating it. This is because a broken pill could cause an overdose of the medication, which is meant to be slowly and gradually released into the body, and not absorbed all at one time.
