Phentermine Common Brand Names
SORTING THROUGH GENERIC VS. BRAND NAME DRUGS : When a pharmaceutical company develops a new drug, it gives the drug two names. The first, its generic name represents the chemical structure or chemical form of the drug. The generic name of a drug never changes. In this case the generic name of these drugs we are discussing below is PHENTERMINE. The second name given to a drug is its brand name. This is the name given to Phentermine by the pharmaceutical company and has nothing to do with its chemical form. The brand names of the drugs we are discussing are ADIPEX-P and IONAMIN. They are both fairly similar in that they are composed of PHENTERMINE, and subsequently given different names by the companies that manufacturer them. No other pharmaceutical company can ever use the brand name of the drug at any time. PHENTERMINE HYDROCHLORIDE (GENERIC NAME) - ADIPEX-P AND IONAMIN (BRAND NAMES) : PHENTERMINE, the generic name for ADIPEX and IONAMIN comes in immediate release or time-release formulas. Immediate release pills enter your blood stream as soon as you take them, and time-release capsules release their Phentermine into your body over an extended period of time, generally 8 or 12 hours. As you can see, there are many popular brand names of PHENTERMINE. Nonetheless, all of the above named compounds are considered clinically equivalent in producing weight loss. IONAMIN IONAMIN is PHENTERMINE set in resin. The resin allows the compound to be released slowly into the blood stream. Some patients prefer it because they believe it to be associated with fewer side effects, others do not. It is the only PHENTERMINE resin on the market. It comes in 30 mg and 15 mg capsules. The 15 mg capsule is gray and yellow, the 30 mg capsule is all yellow. Each capsule is labeled "IONAMIN". PHENTERMINE VS. XENICAL : PHENTERMINE is an appetite suppressant. XENICAL inhibits fat absorption into the body. So both may be used in conjunction with each other for those who are seriously obese.
