How Phendimetrazine Bontril Works

Phendimetrazine is the generic name for Bontril and is the active ingredient in these diet pills.

Phendimetrazine (Bontril) is a sympathomimetic appetite suppressant, which was created by Carnrick Laboratories Inc. It is designed to be used as a short term therapy for obesity. Phendimetrazine (Bontril) works on the hypothalamus and limbic areas of the brain in order to create a chain of chemical reactions to reduce the desire to eat in users. However, the draw back of this medication is that its potency tends to decrease as time goes on in users, which is why it is a short term treatment instead of a long term treatment.

Phendimetrazine (Bontril) is also chemically related in composition with amphetamines, so it is often advised to take it 10-14 hours before going to sleep, to help avoid sleeplessness. As with many pharmaceutical drugs there are many side effects associated with the use of this medication. These side effects include some of the following: faintness, headache, insomnia, anxiety, diarrhea, restlessness, dry mouth, hallucinations, severe hypertension, chest pain, hammering heart and problems urinating for some. Some users have had allergic reactions which manifest in closing of the throat, difficulty breathing and swelling of the lips or tongue.

Also some individuals have reported changes in their sex drive, which can be a big issue for some individuals. Please be advised this medication can also be habit forming both physically and psychologically. Those who do become addicted have experienced withdrawal.

For those people who are looking for an appetite-suppressant, but do not wish to take a prescription diet pill, such as Phendimetrazine (Bontril), then there are other non-prescription (over-the-counter) diet pills that may be better suited. For example, diet pills containing Hoodia Gordonii or Bitter Orange extract have also been found to suppress appetite in many users.
