Reviews for Phendimetrazine

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 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.”

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!”

For Obesity: “I just have to say taking Phendimetrazine was the only way I could lose weight. Obviously diet and walking 4 times a week for half hour. I didn't have side effects, except for dry mouth and a lot of energy, which was very good. Anyway I was with a physician-supervised weight-loss program but never I had a problem. I lost 91 pounds in five months. Simply..... amazing!”

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: “Previous user of Adipex (phentermine), which would work great for the first few weeks, but then totally wear off, not to mention the side effects (insomnia, heart palpitations, constipation, anxiety) were annoying to deal with. Switched to Bontril and am so happy I did. I feel calm and focused. It's the oddest thing to not have to "stress" over counting calories and choosing good food options. It just sort of is a perk with Bontril. One tip: drink lots of water. Bontril, water and clean eating dropped 8.7 pounds off me in a week. One of the best parts is going to bed and being able to sleep, which was hard with Adipex.”

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: “I only took Bontril 105mg for 2 months. I started out at 250lbs!!! I went to buy New clothes and was in a size 18, so depressing! I started out on Bontril 35mg, that did nothing for me so they bumped it up. I did stop drinking cold drinks, and only water. I did not even drink tea. I ate a high protein diet, beef jerky, cheese, and yogurt. They told me 1200 calories but that felt impossible! I did exercise the first month but slacked in the second. I lost 50 pounds total in those 2 months. There after I did not gain my appetite back and got all the way down to 162 pounds. This medicine is absolutely amazing! Its been over 2 years and I just starting gaining some of the weight back due to the depo shot, I will definalty be going back to Bont”

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: “My wife was prescribed Bontril as she was a bit overweight about a year after having our child. Three months later, she started having significant side effects which resulted in a full blown psychosis. Despite no prior mental issues, she was diagnosed with Schizo-Effective disorder at 32 years old, very late for a normal diagnosis of the sort. Two visits to a mental health facility and four years later, she managed to return to the dermatologist who prescribed (and distributed out of his office) the medicine. Two months later she was dead. The autopsy was inconclusive and we are currently awaiting toxicology to confirm. Be very cautious of taking this medication.”

For Obesity: “I lost 50lbs in 3 months on Phendimetrazine. When I 1st got the pill I was 240lbs just had a baby 1 year prior. 175lbs before baby. After OTC diet pills and diet fads I went to the dr for help. 3 times a day (one hour before meals), 4-5 days a week at the gym & a calorie deficit life style change helped me lose weight like crazy. My mood was so much better & I had motivation in everything I did. I had no crazy side affects. I got prescribed for 6 months. However COVID hit & gyms closed for 4-5 month. I decided since I thought the closed gym wouldn't last long I'd enjoy myself. Well we all know how long that went for. I SLOWLY gained 15-20lbs & a year later I'm back on the prescription. I was so stressed out with the world covid policy's & being harassed at work for them I would stress eat. I went to the gym when the gyms opened back up but couldn't get my eating under control. Day 3 and I lost 4lbs already. I know its water weight and such. I feel amazing like I have will power again.”

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.”

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 have been taking this now for two months. I am currently at 31 lbs weight loss and I feel better than ever. It works great as an appetite suppressant, I don't have any of those carbohydrate cravings and my energy and focus are through the roof. I have no jitters, restlessness, or any of the side effects mentioned. I am very happy with this product. In addition to the medication I have been on a high protein, low fat, low carb diet with occasional exercise. I try to exercise at least 3 days a week, but it usually ends up being 1 to 2 days a week because something always comes up. I have been on diets and pills for 15 years and this is the first thing that has ever worked for me and been pleasant too. Would recommend to anyone.”

For Obesity: “I took PhenD 1 a day 30 min before breakfast a year ago for 3 months- went from 168lb to 126lb in 3 mnths. It curved my appetite & gave me energy. Dr 1st prescribed Pherermine but the side affects were bad, tried PhenD & they are AMAZING! I maintained 126 lbs for a year then lost my job. Unemployed & depressed I gained 10 lbs back. NOPE! I HAVE LOOKED & FELT TOO GOOD OVER THE LAST YEAR. Just went back on PhenD yesterday & already feel it working- No more stress eating! I hope 2 drop the lbs and keep off forever! I’m 42 & with PhenD I’m in the best shape of my life. No exercise other than my regular busy schedule & my blood work has never been better. I highly recommend this to anyone who has trouble losing weight. I was tiny my entire life but after a hysterectomy I gained 40+ Other than surgery scars, I am now very proud of my body. PhenD will put 15 yrs back on your life & it’s affordable- only $29 per month w/o ins. My food intake cost more than that prior to PhenD”

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.”

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.”

MassieK · Taken for 1 to 6 months September 30, 2016

For Obesity: “I have been on Phendimetrazine as well as a natural thyroid pill since July. I have lost a total of 35 lbs, but I have changed my diet dramatically. I do not eat any bad carbs. I have also completely cut out sugar, and only drink water. I do believe that I could've lost this weight with my diet change alone, because I have already done so in the past. Now on my 3rd month, I have noticed that I am very irritable. I have been having a lot of anxiety and depression. I find myself having difficulty breathing feeling as what I am assuming is a panic attack. I feel as though I cannot swallow at times. I also find myself overcome with extreme sadness and get mad and feel violent. Also feel as I am going a little insane. BE CAUTIOUS.”

Angsue January 8, 2016

For Obesity: “So far so Great! I can't believe I found something that works for me! I'm 51 years old I have been over weight for 17 years! I was always able to control my weight before with weight watcher and Exercise but the pounds kept coming on! I got up to 250 and now I am down to 228 in 2 months!! What I can't believe is this is with no Exercise but I have Lots of energy! I do have some side effects with the biggest being insomnia so sometimes I'll skip a dose if I think I haven't been getting enough sleep and that helps some.. But the biggest part is the Energy and working all day without a nap or feeling tired! I don't want to go off it until I get to my goal weight how long can I stay on this medicine? I heard 3 months but that kinda scares me.”

Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine) for Obesity: “I am 70 years young, 5'1" tall, and did weigh 160. I have been taking Bontril for 6 weeks. I feel great and have lost 12 lbs. I must see my doctor every 30 days to be weighed. I find that I am satisfied with a lot less food. I try to eat a lot of vegies and tiny amounts of meat. Also bread that has 7 grams of fiber. When I get to my target weight of 140 lbs, I will wean myself off the Bontril by taking it every other day at first then down from there. I do not have an addictive personality.”

For Obesity: “I started taking this on Feb 9, 2017. It is now April 8, 2017. Two months on this medicine I have lost 18 pounds with 11 pounds going in the first 4 weeks. At first I only took half what I was prescribed which is 2 pills three times a day. On the 4th day I was sooooo hungry I went ahead and ate a bunch of junk food, but it still wasn't what I normally ate. It has decreased my desire to eat everything I see all the time and all but killed my insatiable hunger. I have been overweight starting in 2001. I am barely 5 foot tall and weighing 209 pounds is just bad. I have thyroid disease and arthritis along with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Most days it is a chore to go from my bed to the chair downstairs. This is helping me.”
