Whenever you are subjecting your body to some exogenous dietary medication for either medical or recreational purpose, it is always suggested not to consume alcohol during that time. Have you ever wondered why? This is because alcohol is an organic chemical compound which on interactions with an exogenous steroidal compound can give highly dangerous results which may even prove to be the complete opposite of what is expected out of the desired product. This way, not only does the product name goes down for yielding undesired effects but also your health is threatened to a large extent. Phentermine is a synthetically manufactured chemical product that has been classified under Schedule IV controlled substances due its behaviour as an amphetamine. It falls under the therapeutic class of sympathomimetic amines and helps in the regulation and stimulation of different neuronal pathways of the central nervous system (CNS) and helps in treating serious health issues like obesity, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. The supplement is often misused, abused, consumed at higher doses often leading to overdose and thus it has been made a prescription drug by the Drug Enforcement Agency. It has been made legal in the United States but is considered illegal in the UK and Australia. You will only find alternatives to Phentermine in Australia, the most common one being Duromine.
How is the interaction between alcohol and Phentermine?
Phentermine is actually the generic term which is contained in the branded products of Adipex, Adipex-P, Phen375, Suprenza, Phentramine- D and Qsymia. There is another additional component that is present in Qsymia which is unique to the other traded forms of the product, a compound known as topiramate. This is done purely for getting enhanced benefits. There are few cayses some users to become more intoxicated when taken alongside a regular practise of taking alcohol. Some experimental studies even show that there is no need for Phentermine to be classified as a controlled substance since it is does not have that much potential to cause increased health risks. But everything depends on how you regulate the dosage cycles.
If the dose strengths are not taken properly, then for obvious reasons there will be certain adverse effects caused related to renal function, hormonal regulation or may even cause hypertension on alcohol interactions with anti depressants like MAO inhibitors.
What are the side effects of alcohol while taking Phentermine?
Alcohol consumption is really not a very good idea when you are undergoing any dietary supplementation course for weight loss purposes or muscle building. A high amount of alcohol intake can cause the following results:
- Sudden blackouts
- Blurred vision
- Poor memory
- Slower ability to interpret things
- Motor skills degradation
Combining the dosage cycle of dietary products like Phentermine with alcohol can cause several complications associated with cardiovascular functioning and central nervous system. You can read about cayses some users to become more intoxicated when alcohol is taken with Phentermine doses and be aware of the adversities.
