Reviews for Phendimetrazine
For Obesity: "Just started my weight loss journey 8 days ago. Doing well and highly motivated. Drug bothered me the first two days with difficulty in getting to sleep but once I changed the times of day I was taking it, that helped. I also seem to only need it twice a day at this time. I have lost 8 pounds in a week which seems like too much but I know that will slow down. It has been a great way to give me a kick in the butt that I have needed to lose this excess baggage I have been carrying around. My goal is to lose 40 pounds and keep it off the rest of my life. Give it a try! It works!"

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: "This medicine was working. Unfortunately I also suffer from migraines and take Topamax. After about two months I began depression. It was really bad."

For Obesity: "So far I've been on this medicine for 7 days and have lost 7lbs as of yesterday. I worked out 3 days for like 30 minutes each day. I have still ate the same but just have stayed away from sweets. My appetite completely is gone, I eat a little pouch of oatmeal in the morning and a Lean Cuisine for lunch. Sometimes I feel a little hungry and will have Greek yogurt in between. I do track my calories via MyFitnessPal app on my phone so that helps to not over eat. I did have a slight headache and felt a little jittery but nothing major at all. I was nervous because some reviews had me worried. Otherwise I am still taking it and I'm excited to see how much I lose this week! It is expensive by the way, luckily I have an insurance card that covers."

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: "I took this a while back and lost 16 lbs in one month. I wanted to try the Belviq instead so Dr prescribed that. Made me dizzy and disoriented so started back on the Bontril again. This time around in doing the Atkins diet along with it so I should be ready to go to Cozemel in January. This stuff is great."

For Obesity: "I'm 40 yrs old, very active eat right but couldn't shed the pounds. I'm 5'3 178 lbs. I started taking the medicine on Tuesday it's now Saturday and I lost 10lbs! You have to keep drinking water, make sure you eat within 45 min of taking the medicines and eat 5xs a day. You won't want to, but make sure you do. You haven't experienced any side effects except a little headache, nothing bad enough where I wanted to stop taking it. I wish I would've started this months ago!"

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: "When I was 33 I weighed 185 lbs. I am only 5'3 so I was extremely over weight. I had never had a weight problem before. My average weight was 125 to 130. After four months of staying home and not going out any, I put on the weight fast!!I started the bontril and changed everything. Didnt eat after 6, stopped drinking soda, nothing fried, no fast food, smaller plates for smaller portions and lots of water. In 3 months I got down to 122. I loved it! I tried it a second time in 2012 with no results. It was a stressful time for me. I am now doing it again and have lost 12 lbs in 2 weeks. Its a great product for weight loss! The only side affect I ever experienced was mild constipation when I didnt drink enough water!!"

Bontril PDM (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: "I have been on bontril for quite a few months now and have lost 30+ pounds. It's been very stubborn, but has came off slowly. I don't eat much anymore and it takes very little to fill me up. My energy levels are about the same and occasionally I will have asomnia. I wish I knew what to do to make it come off faster, I exercise and drink lots of water. I get weighed in every other week and have always lost weight it's just only a pound here or there. But I have to say this is the only product that I've actually lost weight on so I'm just thankful for that even if it's slow. Overall I'm just thankful I'm loosing weight. I'm a 5"8 240 pound female"

For Obesity: "I suffer from degenerative disc disease, depression secondary to that, G.E.R.D. and old-lady disease. I can barely walk 50% of the time without pain or extreme effort it seems. I take Cymbalta and Vicodin for chronic pain, as well as naproxen sodium. Without phendimetrazine 105mg timed released or phentermine 37.5mg, I wouldn't have enough umph! To get moving to just do some of the activities of daily living. It is an excellent medicine for weight loss or even weight maintenance. It is further an excellent medicine to counteract the side effects of pain medication; and thus, it should be classified as a medication for this use also, not only for weight loss."

For Obesity: "I have been taking phendimetrazine 105 capsule for about 3 weeks. I am on a 3 month cycle and I am not going to weigh myself until the 3 months are up. I am 6'1" and 298lbs. I put on 98 pounds in 18 months due to various stress related issues in my life ranging from a new house to a new baby and the death of my father. So now I am on the road to recovery and need to get back into shape. People are telling me I look like I lost weight and I can tell that my pants are fitting a little loser and my shirts aren't as tight, so I guess its working. I don't have any real side effects I already suffer from anxiety and the pill does not really get me anxious so that's a plus. I am going to continue with the medication and hopefully lose 100lbs."

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: "When I started taking phendimetrazine I was at 200lbs! I was down 60lbs after only 4 months. I really miss this medicine as it really gave me the right amount of energy I needed to keep a healthy regime going. I have a military doctor now and they will only prescribe orlistat. Phendimetrazine was life changing for me in a positive way."

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: "My Dr. prescribed Bontril one week ago and have lost 5 pounds. The only side effect was insomnia for 2 days. I usually walk 15-20 mins and when I eat I get full really fast, this is what I needed."

For Obesity: "Struggling with weight for years, I have tried numerous diets. High protein low carb being one of the best. But with a busy stressful life I needed a but of help I stared on phentermine 30Mg in the morning and phendimetrazine 35Mg in the evening. They worked like magic LOST 6 lb in 1 week, 10lb in 1 month by the 3rd month I had lost 20 lb. Started at 170lbs ended at 150lbs, maintained for 2 months just by taking morning pill. I will start taking evening pills to lose 20lbs more. The secret is stop eating and start only tasting good."

Bontril PDM (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: "I am 5' 6" and was 190 lbs. when I started this medicine. I began taking this medication 3 weeks ago as part of the Doctor G's Weight Loss Program. At the end of 2 weeks, I was down 9 pounds. I don't get weighed again until Week 4. I have not been hungry at all. I am only taking half the recommended dose because I truly believe that taking medication is never healthy. However, I am in the military and need to lose weight for this year's waist measurement. A hysterectomy has really screwed things up for me."

For Obesity: "I just started Phendimetrazine yesterday. I was given the 35mg dose and split the tab in half and took it around 10am. I have taken Phentermine in the past and it makes me feel very jittery and gave me headaches. I didn't experience this at all with Phendimetrazine! I'm so pleased. I didn't even think about food and had to force myself to eat lunch. By dinner time it was starting to wear off so I was able to eat but still not all that hungry. I went to bed at 10pm and was able to fall right to sleep. I'm 5'10" and weighed 174lbs at my weigh in yesterday and today I was already down 2 lbs. I'm hoping to lose 15 lbs total and I feel very optimistic!"

For Obesity: "I got diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome 5 years ago. The doctor put me on many different pills which made me sick to my stomach. Then he put me on phendimetrazine. I take one when I wake up and one around 3pm. It has helped me have the energy I need to enjoy life. I was always so tired and didn't know what I was going to do. I am so thankful for this medicine. I have had no side effects except for dry mouth sometimes. I drink more water and chew sugar free gum to help. I don't take this for diet. I'm 34 and 5'6 weighing 134. I've maintained this size for 5 years now, give or take a few lbs. It really helps for energy."

For Obesity: "I took this medication several years ago. 135 mg @ 10am, 35 mg @ 3 pm. I initially lost 55 lbs in 3 months. I stopped and gained it back (poor eating and lack of activity). I started again last week and have already lost 7 lbs in 6 days. I've not worked out at all. I have adjusted my eating habits. Lots of water, no junk food, leaner meats, fruits and veggies. Stay occupied with something other than eating and you will lose weight. If I stay at 7 lbs a week, that will be around 60 lbs before I go on my cruise in Sept! Hope I can keep the momentum up. Good luck all!"

For Obesity: "I started using Phendimetrazine 35mg about 8 weeks ago. I lost 20lbs. I was amazed at the results but I also take additional supplements and vitamins too. I'm being seen by 2 doctors. One takes care of my general health, the other weight management. I started out at 190 lbs and now I'm at 170 and counting. I recently started taking the 105mg. I'm not used to it yet. It really suppressed my appetite. If I didn%u2019t think to eat, I wouldn't have. I must keep my metabolism active. What I don't like about it is it keeps me awake and I don't get good sleep at night. I was told to take the 105mg and then the 35mg at dinnertime if needed. If you have a hunger issue, 105mg is the one for you. Its serious but please eat a little. It works though."

For Obesity: "I had gained a bit of weight during Menopause (about 20 lbs.) I am 5'3" and I now weigh 140lbs. I did get down to 135lbs but have gained back a couple of pounds. I wanted to share my experience to see if anyone else noticed the same. I went to Medi Weight Loss Clinic where I was given this medicine for only a few weeks because I wasn't that overweight. What I noticed was the increase of energy, that I had lost after menopause, I also lost all hot flashes, night sweats, and irritability. After not taking the medicine for a couple of weeks all menopause symptoms came back. My friend had the same happen to her. I think it would be a great for menopause."
