Reviews for Phendimetrazine
"I like this medicine I haven't felt any side effects so far. I lost 25 pounds in 12 weeks, eating healthy and working out!"
"I have been taking phendimetrazine for 1 month already and I have lost 20 pounds. Going to the GYM 5 times a week AND diet no burgers, fries, soda, pizza, straight healthy! I started at 166LBS when I went to the Doctor, right now I'm 146LBS. I'm 25, 5'6 my goal to look great is 130-135LBS and I'm all done! My experience that I would like to share about taking The Little Magic Pill (the way I call it) ..it really works. It's worth it 100% and remember it takes time but it does happen. While taking this pill hunger and cravings just vanish. GOOD LUCK! TAKE IT!"
"I have only been taking it for a couple of days and I feel better than I have in years. I have to make myself eat. My energy is great but no jitters. I actually feel like doing things again. Great mood elevator. Wanting to lose approximately 30lbs. I don't have much will power but I think this will do the trick."
Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "I started taking Bontril 105mg for about 4 days and haven't weighed myself yet. I used to take this pill about 4 years ago and lost around 30 pounds, but then stopped taking them when my former Doctor stopped prescribing diet pills. It was until a co-worker referred me to a new Doctor and I am completely happy with him. He first gave me Adipex but after 2 months with no weight loss results he changed me to Bontril last week. I am confident and happy that I am back to this pill and more than sure that it will work. I am 157 and 5" and my goal is to lose 35 pounds before my 20 months old birthday."
"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."
Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "I lost 6 pounds on the first week of taking Bontril, then no more lost. I didn't have cravings at first but after 3 weeks I am hungry again. Headaches are gone, still doing the diet but nothing happens. I will finish the first bottle and see if it is worth it to start a second. I had high expectations."
"Just starting a weight loss program containing the medication combined with a once a week B12 shot, this is my first day taking the pill and I'm still as hungry as I was yesterday before I took it. Maybe I have to give it a few more days."
Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "I started taking Bontril about 5 days ago and have already lost 11 pounds, Amazing! I am not at all hungry, I have to make myself eat 3 meals a day and the only thing so far is I haven't slept well. Hopefully this will subside. I started at 166 pounds and I am 5'6" tall and my goal is 145 pounds."
Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "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): "I began using this medication February 5, 2009 and have lost 25 pounds to date. I follow the 1200 calorie intake recommended and go dancing twice a week as exercise. This medication is a great jump start to changing your eating habits. I no longer need to eat pizza, burger, fries, or soda to feel full. Grilled chicken salad is now my new favorite meal. If used appropriately it should help reach your goal."
Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "I have been taking it for 3 weeks and have lost 6 pounds. I was on Adipex. It has been 5 months in total and I have lost 42 pounds. I have 30 more to go. I am eating 1200-1300 calories a day, and exercising at least 3 times a week."
Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "I'm taking Bontril now. Today was a week. I have lost at least 3 lbs, eat 1/4th of what I did, and am more focused. While taking this you should drink lots of water because your mouth will be dry."
"Been taking Bontril for years and I am completley satisfied with the results. I don't have the side effects mentioned. If I did not take it I would be about 300 lbs (I'm 150lbs thanks to bontril)."
"I lost three pounds in one day"
"I've been taking this for almost 4 weeks now. I weighed in at the doctor 3 days ago and have lost 14 lbs already. I was 202lbs and I am down to 188lbs, at 5'2. I have been on a strict 1200 calorie diet, and have not exercised, although I have a 19 month old I chase after all day. I have increased energy, and I feel great about myself. They really work to help with appetite control. I also just started taking a multi-vitamin just to be sure I am getting enough nutrition. The only downer is that I have been having bad headaches for the past week. So Ive been just taking motrin. I take 3 pills at 10 am every morning. And I sleep great at night. I recommend these to those who really want to change there lifestlye."
"This really worked for me. Gave me lots of energy and I lost 80 lbs in 9 months. I also have adult add and this drug for some reason helps me to focus and keep on track."
"I've been taking phendimetrazine 105 mg once a day for a little over a week now. I've lost 6 pounds already without any exercise (recent foot injury). I definitely think once I start exercising again the results will be even better. I have had no jitters at all. The appetite suppressant part worked great the first 3 or 4 days but now has seemed to wear off a little. It's still there just not as strong. However, those 3 or 4 days really helped me realize how much I had been eating before and now it's much easier to eat just 2 or 3 small meals a day. I started at 172 lbs and my goal weight is 135 lbs. I'm also getting B12 injections once a week so that is probably contributing to the weight loss as well."
"I felt healthier than I had in a long time, while taking this medicine. I had energy without the jitters. Great appetite suppressant as well."
"Works great. Take as directed."
Bontril Slow Release (phendimetrazine): "I have been on Bontril 105 since mid-August. I have lost 20 lbs so far. I have had no side effects. I am in my 50's. I watch my carbs and walk for about 45 to 60 minutes 5 days a week."
"I have had no problems with this medication. I feel extremely alert except at night, which I fall asleep quickly. I have lost 5 lbs in the first week because I am eating only what I should be eating. I have no appetite for the extra junk I have been eating for the last few years, when I put all this weight on me. Oh and now that I am not so consumed with my weight and snacking, I can concentrate on work so my work has improved as well."
"I have been taking Bontril since April. I have lost 44 lbs."
"I am 5'9 and used to weigh 292lbs and now weigh 230lbs. I have been taking phendimetrazine for less than four months and have lost 62lbs. I have 40 to 60 more to go. I think this diet plan with good eating and working out is the best kept secret out there. "
"This is an amazing diet pill. I weighed almost 150lbs and after I finished taking them I weighed an amazing 109lbs. Wow, never thought I would be so small again. That was with exercising 5 days a week and eating heathy."
"I've been on bontril for 1 1/2 years. It has worked great!!I've lost over 110 pds. After struggling with weight all my life, this is the only medicine that has helped. After taking this for so long, the only thing different is the appetite suppressant qualities have worn off a little, but the energy qualities (still gives a little boost) are still there. With diet and exercise this works wonders. I exercise 1 1/2 hours for 5 days a week. Only side effect was sleeplessness for the first couple weeks."
