Bontril Review

BontrilBontril is a prescription medication meant for the short-term treatment of obesity.  It is prescribed for patients having serious trouble controlling bad eating habits. It is clearly powerful enough to be prescription only, but does this mean it is effective or only risky?  Is it right for you?

Bontril Ingredients

Bontril’s generic chemical name is phendimetrazin which is a sympathomimetic amine similar to an amphetamine.  It is basically a stimulant for the central nervous system which increases your heart rate and blood pressure and decreases your appetite.  The boost in metabolism may also help you burn more (though not a significant amount) calories.

Commonly reported side effects for this drug include:

  • Restlessness or tremor
  • Nervousness or anxiety
  • Headache or dizziness
  • Insomnia
  • Dry mouth or an unpleasant taste in your mouth
  • Diarrhea or constipation

Bontril Pros

  • Evaluated by the FDA

Bontril Cons

  • Considerable side effects
  • Only temporary as it may cause dependence

Bontril Conclusion

As Bontril is a prescription medication, there is a considerable cost associated not only in the pill itself but in seeing the doctor to begin with.  Aside from this, the product is only meant for temporary use and if it fails then you are out a lot of money and less opportunity to try again. Only if you have tried all the other products and still have a serious problem with obesity, you may want to talk to your doctor about options such as Bontril.

    I have been taking bontril for 3 months,and I have lost a total of 8 pounds. I do not think that it is all that great.I feel that I need to be taking something else that will help me lose weight and control my eating.

    I’ve taken Bontril (phendimetrazine), 105 mg., off and on for about a year. It makes a HUGE difference in helping me lose weight and then maintaining my weight. However, it’s very expensive and available by prescription only. It’s too much of a hassle to continue taking, so I’ve just ordered some Fenterdren.I look forward to reviewing that after some time.

    I took Bontril for 1 1/2 years and lost 30 lbs. It took 3 months to begin losing and then I was losing 15 lbs every 2-3 months. I’ve never had any other kind work like this on me before. It really made me feel great as well.
