Phentramin-D vs. Phentermine

Phentermine and Phentramin-d are two weight loss pills having similar working mechanism and expected weight loss rates. However, there are countless differences between their ingredients and effectiveness. It is important to compare all your options before starting to take a weight loss medication in order to avoid as many adverse effects as possible. This article discusses about the basic differences between these two appetite suppressants.

Phentermine is an FDA (the US Food and Drug Administration) approved prescription weight loss remedy that enables you to lose the extra pounds within just 2 o 3 weeks. It is often prescribed by doctors for fighting obesity problems. FDA first approved it in the year of 1959 and the drug became available in its generic hydrochloride form during the 1970s. This anorectic drug suppresses your appetite so that you eat less often and burn more calories. Like most other appetite suppressants, Phentermine work on the brain and stimulates certain neurons to release various catecholamines including epinephrine, norepinephrine and Dopamine. This function is believed to suppress the user’s appetite by working on their central nervous system. According to some critics, the functioning and effects of Phentermine can be compared to those of anti-depressant drug amphetamine.

Phentramin-D is a relatively new but similar appetite suppressant that is available without a prescription. It consists of various chemical compounds, such as dimethyl-pentylamine-hydrochloride and trimethylxanthine. Unlike Phentermine hydrochloride, Phentramin-d can be ordered online or bought over the counter from any drug store. It is yet to be approved by the FDA, but its active ingredients are produced in FDA approved laboratories. The chemical compounds in this medication produce a sympathomimetic amine like Phentermine. The sympathomimetic amine mimics the functions of norepinephrine, the neurotransmitter released by Phentermine to reduce hunger, to elevate the body’s metabolic rate and increase the energy levels without affecting the CNS (central nervous system). Phentramin-d is often mistaken for Phentramine, a herbal alternative to Phentermine. But in truth, Phentramin-d does not contain any herbal components.

So, both these medications can effectively reducing weight within a short time. However, they may also have some negative reactions in certain users. Phentermine is more likely to cause serious side effects compared to Phentramin-d. The potential side effects of the former include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Dehydration
  • Increased pulse rate
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach cramps

Phentermine is recommended by FDA only for a short term use to avoid these adverse health effects.

Phentramin-d on the other hand, does not lead to any serious health problems in most users. However, it may lead to certain moderate health concerns like irritability, nervousness and mild insomnia. It can be said in the end the Phen-d is an ideal option for you if you want to lose weight without having to go to a doctor for a prescription or running the risk of countless side effects. But, you should not opt for this drug if you have a history of heart diseases, hormonal imbalance and allergic drug reaction. In such cases, it is advisable to consult your doctor regarding the best diet pill for you.
