Obermine is one of several of the alternative brand names for Phentermine. It is used, in conjunction with exercise and dieting, to assist you with losing weight, and it works by suppressing the appetite.
Obermine comes in extended release capsules and in tablets. Normally, it is consumed on a morning as a single dose each day, or three times per day, half an hour before meals. Carefully follow the instructions on the prescription label, and ask your pharmacist or doctor to explain any aspect you are unsure about. Only take Obermine precisely as instructed.
The majority of people use the drug for three to six weeks, although the treatment length depends on the way you react to the medication. Obermine can be addictive, so do not consume a larger dosage than your GP advises you to. To reduce the likelihood of side-effects, this drug should be consumed at meal times. If you have been prescribed a long acting (extended release) product, do not crush or chew the tablet.
Precautions to Follow Before Taking Obermine
- Inform your pharmacist and doctor if you have allergies to Phentermine or other medication.
- Inform your pharmacist and doctor about the non-prescription and prescription drugs you are taking, particularly fluvoxamine (Luvox), fluoxetine (Prozac), insulin, guanethidine, MAO inhibitors [tranylcypromine (Parnate) and phenelzine (Nardil)] even if you ceased taking them over the last two weeks, drugs for depression and weight loss, sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil), and vitamins.
- Inform your doctor should you have high blood pressure, heart disease, hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid gland), arteriosclerosis (narrowed arteries), glaucoma, diabetes, or a drug abuse history.
- Inform your doctor should you be pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or if you are breast feeding. If, while you are taking Obermine, you become pregnant, consult your doctor.
- You should be aware that this medication might cause you to become drowsy. Do not operate machinery or drive a car until you experience how the medication affects you.
- Do not forget that alcohol can exacerbate the drowsiness this drug causes.
- Should you suffer from diabetes, you might require a bigger dosage of insulin whilst consuming Obermine. Ask your doctor for clarification.
You should always adhere to the exercise and diet regimen your doctor has provided you with. Obermine functions better in-conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.
