    are your appetite suppresants healthy for you to take? A lot of these 'slimming' clinics are dodgy and rip patients off, selling things they really shouldn't. Have you researched the product you're taking on the internet?

    I've been reading about Hoodia Gordonii which are natural suppressants, are you taking them or something different?
    Take care whatever you do, I tried some of the prescription ones once and they gave me heart palpitations.

    I haven't researched these tablets at all!!! When i started taking them i did agree with my partner that if i felt ill or strange whilst on them, i would stop!!! But luckily i feel fine, relieved that i control what i eat now :)
    The only thing that it says on the bottle is 'Phentermine 30mg'. I looked online tonight but there are so many different types!

    I am taking 'Phentermine 30mg'. I don't think the Clinic will tell me exactly what there called incase i buy them somewhere else! Thats terrible about the heart palpitations :eek: Luckily i have been ok so far

    A great result ... hope they continue working for you. I've just started taking Reductil prescribed by my GP - they're also appetite suppressants but I looked on the box and they don't contain the same ingredient as yours.

    Don't know if they'll work or not as a lot of my issues around food don't actually involve hunger ... but we'll see.

    Good luck with the week ahead :)

    hi, dont know if the clinic has warned u but many of these pills raise the blood pressure.
    it is a similar active ingredient in reductil which i was on last year.
    i have and always have had perfect bp but on reductil u have to have ur bp checked regularly.. and for good reason.
    after 6 weeks on reductil my bp started to raise so i came off them. wasnt worth the risk of developing high bp problems.

    Hi,

    Hey,

    It is quite worrying not knowing exactly whats in the pills but all i know is that there not making me ill or making me feel odd....There doing the job :) Good luck on your diet, i hope they work for you. My weight problems are due to the fact that i comfort eat & eat when i'm bored or angry (not that i'm actually hungry)! But these tablets have just put me off food completely :D

    Hi get slim, I'm a relative newby on here and am probably talking out of turn here but when I read this the name rang a bell and I did some research because I remembered a big debate in the US regarding Fen-Phen which was Phentermine mixed with a couple of other amphetimine based diet pills. Though you are not taking that I just wanted you to see what you are taking, I'm sorry if you think I'm interferring but I'm a great believer if you know of something that could help another person it's wrong not to say it!

    Found this on wikipedia: Phentermine is an appetite suppressant of the amphetamine and phenethylamine class.
    It is approved as an appetite suppressant to help reduce weight in obese patients when used short-term and combined with exercise, diet, and behavioral modification. It is typically prescribed for individuals who are at increased medical risk because of their weight and works by helping to release certain chemicals in the brain that control appetite.
    Phentermine is still available by itself in most countries, including the U.S. However, because it is similar to amphetamines, individuals may develop an addiction to it. Hence, it is classified as a controlled substance in many countries. Internationally, phentermine is a schedule IV drug under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances.[1] In the United States, it is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act.

    Again I hope you don't think I'm being bossy, I just thought I'd heard of it and I had! At least you'll know what you are taking which can only be a good thing!! Best of luck with whatever you decide to do. bb x

    Hi bigley,

    Thanks for the information :) The clinic have said that i can only take the tablets for 6 weeks & then have a break & then carry on...reason being is that my body will get immune to them & they won't work :rolleyes: At the moment i am happy with what i'm doing but i will take the facts into consideration x
