Yes, you will fail a military drug test if you are taking Phentermine. This is because its construction is chemically similar to amphetamine - a substance which is tested for in a military drug screening.

If you have been prescribed Phentermine then notify the officials at the testing and show them your prescription.

  • Phentermine is primarily used in medicine as an appetite suppressant. It should be used in conjunction with exercise and a healthy diet to help a person lose weight.
  • It is a psycho-stimulant drug that facilitates the release of norepinephrine into the brain to control appetite.
  • Phentermine also works outside the brain's mechanisms. It encourages the release of adrenaline and epinephrine to break down the fat stored in cells.
  • Although it is designed for obese patients, the use of Phentermine has become increasingly popular across the general population as people have become more concerned about their appearance.
  • If you notify the technician at the drug test, they will understand that you may show a false negative for amphetamine.
