Diet pill duel
You’ve probably heard by now about Phentermine and its competitor, Phentramin-D. These are the two most popular weight loss pills on the market today. Both are effective at reducing weight in relatively short times. But one is more promising than the other.
Phentermine is the most prescribed weight loss pill and appetite suppresant since its FDA approval in 1959 and its introduction to the public in the 1970s. In the late 90s up to the present, Phentermine use has declined, largely because of increasing knowledge of its undesirable side effects.
Phentramin-D, introduced in 2007, is becoming more and more preferred by those who wish to reduce weight because of its advantages over Phentermine.
Comparing them side-by-side, we get this similarity: both can make you lose 8-15 pounds a month. Both strongly suppress appetite and greatly boost metabolism as well as give energy boost. Both are effective at burning fat. Both should be combined with the right diet, proper exercise and discipline.
But Phentramin-D wins over Phentermine anytime because it is non-prescription, can be legally bought online, and costs about ⅓ less than Phentermine.
Plus, Phentramin-D’s side effects are just two: sleeplessness and dry mouth while Phentermine has much more besides those two, and are classic side effects of amphetamines — irregular heartbeat, increased or irregular blood pressure, psoriasis, souring of tissues, mental disorder (including hostile irritability, jitters, restlessness, nervousness and panic, euphoria, hallucinations, manic-depression), blurred vision, heartburn, clumsiness, trembling or shaking, dizziness, vomiting and diarrhea (or the opposite, constipation), rashes and itching, stomach pain, fatigue, dilated pupils, thirst, and increased sexual desire in females — ok, I’m not sure if that last one is a bad side effect but you get the idea.
Besides, Phentermine can only be taken for a couple of weeks and then addiction and psychological dependence set in. To top it off, tolerance to Phentermine is usually followed by a rebound in weight gain — making one’s sacrifice with Phentermine meaningless.
Phentramin-D usage, on the other hand, can be up to 3 months straight, and then on and off after that, for weight maintenance.
Still, Phentermine is prescribed by some doctors who think the patient needs it for weight loss. This can be due to lack of information. It’s time to pump up the knowledge about Phentramin-D on the social networks. People need to know there is a safer, non-prescription, less expensive alternative to Phentermine and that is Phentramin-D.
