Weight Loss With Ionamin: Gentle Plan, Mighty Results


You know you have will-power. You can change a diaper while on the phone with an important client and then fix a fabulous, healthy meal for your family and your unexpected visitors while arranging your tax receipts. Only a master of willpower could do these things every day!

But where it comes to weight-loss, will-power isn't always enough. What can you do if you're squeezing a diet and exercise into your busy day but the needle on the scale won't budge?

Enter Ionamin

If you're on a program to get to a healthy weight, you should consider talking to your doctor about Ionamin. Ionamin contains the drug phentermine, an appetite suppressant: it encourages changes in your brain chemicals to make you feel less hungry. By taking the edge off, Ionamin can make it easier to make healthy food choices, which in turn can make exercise easier. Ionamin works like training wheels on a bike, making it easier for you to get the hang of things until your new healthy habits stay put on their own!

Phentermine is everywhere - why is Ionamin special?

Phentermine is the name of the chemical found in a number of different products. Adipex, Phentercot, Teramine, Fastin and Pro-fast are all brand names for drugs that have the same active ingredient, phentermine.

The active ingredient in Ionamin is also phentermine. In Ionamin, phentermine is trapped in a special "resin" that releases the drug slowly, to reduce irritation if you have a sensitive stomach. Some patients also report that any side effects they experience when starting the drug are less abrupt and easier to manage.

I like the idea of gentle weight loss, but will it help someone who has a lot of weight to lose?

Ionamin is designed especially for someone like you. In fact, you're an ideal candidate if your Body Mass Index (or BMI, which measures your height-to-weight ratio) is above 30, or if your BMI is above 27 and you have risk factors like diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.

It sounds too good to be true! Why isn't everyone on Ionamin?

Before providing you with a prescription, your doctor will ask about your medications and health history. Your doctor may suggest a different medication if you have health conditions including heart disease or lung problems.

In addition, Ionamin works very similarly to certain antidepressants. If you're already on certain antidepressants (called MAO inhibitors), you won't want to be using Ionamin on top of it.

Lastly, speak honestly with your doctor if you've had past difficulties with alcohol or drug dependence. There are reports of some people who've gotten over a dependence developing dependence on phentermine products, so you and your doctor should find a product that's less likely to put you at risk.

Ionamin and Daily Life

Once you're on Ionamin, you'll want to check in with your doctor regularly. If it doesn't seem to be helping weight loss within the first few weeks, ask ask her if you need to change doses or drugs. Side effects like very mild stomach upset or jitteriness are normal for the first couple of days, but you should let her know if you have them for more than a few days or if they get worse. If you have serious side effects like chest pain or shortness of breath, see a doctor immediately as these may be signs that you need to stop taking Ionamin right away.

After a few weeks, you'll be ready to take off the training wheels; you'll find at this point that your diet feels more like part of your daily life and your diet will take off!
