How much do you want to lose? Synergy has a solution for every weight loss goal!
Clinical research regarding the causes of obesity has found that genes play a vital role in determining a person’s proneness to obesity. Genes also help control appetite, influence your ability to feel full and may even trigger hyperactive responses to the smell, sight and taste of food. If you are constantly dieting and performing the latest trendy exercises but cannot lose the weight you want to lose, we offer a safe, effective and professionally developed phentermine program in Bakersfield, CA at Synergy Wellness Center to help you achieve your weight goals.
Phentermine is an appetite suppressant taken as tablet or extended release capsules that heightens chemical signaling to the brain’s appetite center, specifically the hypothalamus. Stimulated by phentermine to reduce appetite, satiety chemicals within the hypothalamus also work to increase metabolism and insulin secretion to deliver energy to your body’s cells instead of storing what you consume as fat. Alternately, when hypothalamic chemicals are triggered by a complex protein called neuropeptide Y, your appetite increases and metabolism decreases.
Similar to the way amphetamine affects signaling to the hypothalamus to suppress appetite, phentermine also promotes release of norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine in the brain. These three neurotransmitters are all implicated, more or less, in appetite regulation, metabolism encouraging stored fat cells to break down for use as energy by the body.
Approved by the U.S. FDA as an appetite suppressant in 1959, phentermine’s classification by the DEA as a Schedule IV controlled substance makes it available only as prescribed by a medical doctor (or physician assistant). Schedule IV medications have low potentials for abuse or dependence. Other Schedule IV drugs in addition to phentermine include Valium, Ambien and Xanax.
At our phentermine clinic in Bakersfield, CA, we provide this effective appetite suppressant for a limited time to clients engaged in a personalized weight loss program involving healthy dietary choices.

Side effects of taking phentermine are usually temporary and subside within a week of starting our weight loss program. Common side effects include:
During your initial consultation with the physician (or physician assistant) overseeing our phentermine program in Bakersfield, CA, you will have the time to discuss any concerns you have about taking phentermine, your expectations and weight loss goals.
Phentermine is contraindicated for those who:
Drinking alcohol while taking phentermine may increase the effects of alcohol on the central nervous system, including disorientation, dizziness or inability to control body movements.
Available in tablets or capsules varying in strength, phentermine is initially prescribed at the lowest therapeutic dose to determine how you respond to its appetite-suppressing properties. You should take phentermine on an empty stomach about one hour before you eat breakfast or wait two hours after you eat breakfast before taking phentermine.
By adhering to lifestyle guidelines provided by your physician (or physician assistant) at our phentermine clinic in Bakersfield, CA, you can help facilitate weight loss while improving your overall health and well-being. Dietary suggestions include:
To maximize your weight loss results with phentermine, we suggest a light exercise program in your daily routine. Exercise not only tones your body, but it also increases your energy level, reduces side effects of phentermine and boosts appetite suppression. Any kind of physical activity that makes your lungs and heart work harder, such as jogging, biking, swimming or walking, is highly recommended when you are taking phentermine.
Your doctor determines how long you need to continue taking phentermine. Some people achieve their weight loss goals within several weeks of undergoing phentermine treatment in Bakersfield, CA at Synergy. Others may need to remain on our phentermine program for a longer period, depending on how much weight they need to lose and how they respond overall to phentermine.
No. Research into people taking phentermine for an extended period to treat obesity found that they do not experience withdrawal symptoms after stopping their use of phentermine. In fact, subjects in clinical studies with phentermine reported experiencing only one side effect — an increase in appetite — one day after they stopped taking phentermine. Due to the drug’s molecular similarity to stimulants, or amphetamines, some researchers thought phentermine users would suffer withdrawal symptoms comparable to illegal stimulants such as methamphetamine or cocaine. However, evidence clearly points to phentermine being even safer than originally assumed when taken long-term for weight loss.
