Phentermine (also known as Adipex-P, Ionamin, and Pro-Fast). Phentermine (prescription drug in USA) stimulates your brain's neuron bundles to release neurotransmitters known as catecholamines, which include dopamine and adrenalin. They signal a fight or flight response in your body, which seems to stop the hunger signal. Therefore, you lose your appetite because your brain doesn’t receive hunger messages. Important note: phentermine effectiveness at helping folks lose weight is usually minimal, a fraction of a pound loss a week; and even that small effectiveness usually diminishes over time.
Phentermine Side Effects. The following are most common: increased blood pressure, racing heart rate, dryness of mouth, diarrhea, constipation, impotence, changes in sex drive, restlessness, dizziness, insomnia, euphoria, headache. Phentermine is not for longterm usage, for there is significant possibility for drug dependence.
Weight Loss Drugs are NOT a cure-all and should be combined with physical exercise and better diet for them to have lasting effects. There seem to be three popular alternatives nowadays: xenical (which is the same as Alli), meridia and phentermine (which is the same as adipex). Note: safety and effectiveness of xenical and meridia have not been established for usage beyond 2 years.
Weight Loss Drug Side Effects are usually mild; however, serious complications have been reported. Consult with your doctor! Most mild symptoms become less or disappear as your body adjusts to the drug. Alli is available over-the-counter now, and most Alli and xenical side effects involve fecal changes. Meridia is a prescription drug similar to Prozac which affects how full of food a person feels; therefore Meridia's side effects will be similar to mood enhancing drugs.

|Excerpt from the book Finding Your Soul in the Spirituality Maze: "Most attorneys would agree with the old saying that "those who represent themselves in court have fools for lawyers." Foolish too are those who channel for themselves and then believe that what comes through is high guidance.
Talking Boards (like the Ouija). A talking board can be quite useful for those starting along the channeling path or for those who would like to experiment with their psychic capabilities. If its use appeals to you, buy a board." Continued here - free read.||
