How it works
- The mechanism of action of phentermine is very similar to amphetamine, as the two compounds are pharmacologically similar. This also means that the medication shares much of its features with infamous methamphetamine, or crystal meth/tik.
- It is worth noting, however, that the doses delivered through medicines like Duromine (typically 15 or 30mg) are far lower than is required for a drug-like high. Ritalin, commonly used as a treatment for ADHD, is another form of amphetamine in common circulation.
- Phentermine specifically focuses on a compound known as TAAR1, the production of which is essential for regulating many important chemicals in the brain. In this case, the important response is the increased production of noradrenaline which is responsible for the body’s “fight-or-flight” response.
- This response is the same you experience whenever you feel you are in danger, and puts the body in an altered state that is better able to react to the threat. Specifically, it increases the heart rate, lung activity and general readiness of the muscles.
