Vivus, Inc. Qsymia Diet Pills

You’ve more than likely already heard, but if not, on July 17th, 2012, Qsymia (a combination of Phentermine and Topiramate), also previously known as Qnexa was approved by the FDA.

So what does this mean for consumers?

Well basically, you now have access to this new diet drug through a prescription provided by your doctor.

Pronounced kyoo-sim-EE-uh, it is a pill that helps obese patients drop some pounds with the use of the Phentermine weight loss stimulant as well as an extended-release anti-seizure drug called Topiramate. So far we are seeing some sources advising to stay away from the pill all together as it may come with some very serious side effects. For example, the director of Consumer Report Health Ratings Center, John Santa, M.D., was quoted on the following:

This drug should only be used in the confines of a research trial in which consumers have been fully informed of its risks and benefits and, someone is responsible for the complications that occur. All the rest of us should wait until we know a lot more about its safety.
–John Santa, M.D.

These words alone are enough to make any think twice about jumping on this new lab concoction. As of right now, Qsymia is limited to a select few of pharmacies that are certified and in agreement to a mitigation and risk eval. strategy, also known as R.E.M.S.. Now, as this seems a little like they are jumping the gun, Vivus, the manufacturer has evaluated the drug by conducting two placebo controlled (randomized) trials consisting of a whopping 3,700 patients who were both diagnosed as obese and overweight. In addition, these participants didn’t have any treatments conducted on weight related conditions for up to a year. And as with most weight loss prescriptions administered, they were given a physical regimen and reduced calorie diet to follow.

Results from the two treatments over the course of one year showed that about 69% and 62% of participants walked away (at the very least) with about 5% less body weight. These results were from the recommended and highest daily doses of Qsymia (15mg Phen. and 92mg Top.) in comparison to those treated with placebos.

Long-Term Monitoring

According to the FDA Press Announcement, Vivus, Inc. of Mountain View, CA has been required to conduct cardiovascular analysis that are long-term to determine the effects of Qsymia in regards to stokes and heart attacks. The company is also required to conduct nine other postmarketing requirements.

The most commonly reported side effects are:

  • Dizziness
  • Paresthesia
  • Insomnia
  • Dry Mouth
  • Constipation, and
  • Altered Taste

New Phenteramin ‘Red Label’ Review

Reviews Leave a comment   , , ,
Phenteramin Ephedra Diet Pills

If you’ve heard of Phentermine-type diet pills then you’ve probably heard of the best replacement out there called Phentramin-D. What you might not have heard of is the new red label Phenteramin, from the makers of Phentramin-D.

Although the packaging looks similar (besides the red of course) to their previous but highly successful product, what’s contained within is said to be much much more potent and effective. Let’s take a look at what makes it different, why Lazarus Labs chose to create Phenteramin, and some of the benefits and downfalls it may provide.

Finding a Solution

There’s no question that the majority of people on the planet are overweight. This has been a growing epidemic for a long time now. The weight loss industry is flooded with all sorts of tools, devices, trends, and diet plans to help people lose weight. And a lot of what is out there is just a big waste of time as some don’t even work. Lazarus Labs analyzed this problem and came up with an even better solution than their previous product. Phenteramin is the strongest Ephedra replacement product to date while still being the safest.

Ok, before we move on let me clear something up for those who might be confused,. Phentramin-D is the leading Phentermine replacement, and Phenteramin is the #1 Ephedra replacement—don’t know what Ephedra is? You can read up on it on Wikipedia.

What’s it made of?

This patent-pending blend of proprietary ingredients only consists of the highest quality. Let’s take a look at what’s inside:

  • 3,6-diiodo-L-thyronine
  • 1,3 dimethylpentylamine
  • 2-alpha-Hydroxyursolic acid
  • 1.3.7-trimethyxanthine
  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan
  • Methylsynephrine
  • N-methylphenylethanolamine

As you can see it’s not loaded with a bunch of light-weight herbal ingredients that are usually diluted and don’t offer proven results. This is what Lazarus Labs is known for—offering proven results and effective products that are safe for the consumer.

Why all the hype?

Well as you can see from the list about, the ingredients are definitely up to par in Phenteramin. The manufacturers definitely did their homework when researching the best way to execute a safe and effective Ephedra product. One thing to note however, is that this is no magic pill and even the manufacturer recommends using it in conjunction with a good diet plan and exercise. Some may say “oh well if it works, then I should have to workout or eat right”, well we think otherwise. Diet pills are created to ASSIST you with your weight loss goals. Not only that, but being fit and healthy never hurt anyone either. So do yourself a favor; pick up a bottle or two of Phenteramin, start getting active, and throw in a good bit of fresh produce in your diet and we wouldn’t be surprised if you started seeing great results rather quickly.

Phentermine

Reviews 1 , , , ,
Phentermine Diet Pills

Phentermine, pronounced as FEN-ter-meen, is the generic name of the marketed diet pills Adipex-P, Zantryl, T-Diet and Oby-Cap. It has been around for decades in the market and is available as a prescription-only drug.

Phentermine – What is it?

Phentermine is both an appetite suppressant and a stimulant. It is similar to the family of drugs called amphetamines and it is because of this that it is classified as a controlled substance pill.

It is a short-term treatment pill to fight obesity, to be used side by side with dieting and exercising. With all these efforts put together, you should be able to quickly lose weight in a matter of weeks. Most of the time, phentermine is given to patients that badly need to lose weight, fast such as those with hypertension and diabetes.

Phentermine comes in a form of a pill that can be easily taken every day.

The History of Phentermine Will Surprise You

MyPhentermine.com Timeline Infogaphic

We’ve put together a detailed infographic that outlines the key dates pertaining to this remarkable weight loss medication.

Click the image to the right to view our infographic (all we ask is that you share this resource with others via a quick tweet).

What you must know about Phentermine

Before asking your doctor to give you phentermine, you should read through the important notices we have for you below.

First of all, you should NOT take phentermine with the following drugs:

  • Isocarboxazid (Marplan)
  • Selegiline (Emsam, Zelapar)
  • Phenelzine (Nardil)
  • Furazolidone (Furoxone)

And other MAO inhibitor drugs, especially in the last 14 days. If these drugs and phentermine meet in your system, it may lead to dangerous side effects.

You should also NOT take phentermine with other diet pills because it may trigger a very rare type of lung disorder called a pulmonary hypertension. This can be fatal at times so make sure that you do not mix it with other diet pills, specifically those with dexfenfluramine and fenfluramine.

A note about drinking alcohol. Phentermine can impair your thinking and alertness so you are advised not to drink phentermine with alcohol and most especially not drinking phentermine while driving.

Lastly, one of the main reasons why phentermine is a prescription-only drug is because it can be very addicting and habit-forming. The proper assessment by your doctor should be done to see if you are prone to drug addiction or if you have a history of drug dependency. You also need your doctor to tell you how to carefully wean off phentermine so that you will avoid withdrawal symptoms.

To help you monitor your progress with phentermine and to help you identify if it is indeed working on you, track your weight loss the day you started taking phentermine. Write a some sort of weight loss journal – what are the side effects you feel, is there a decrease in your appetite, how much weight you have lost so far etc.

Phentermine Precautions

This diet pill is not for everyone. There are certain types of people who must take extra care when taking phentermine. These are those with a history or a predisposition to develop:

  • Heart diseases and heart issues like hypertension
  • Coronary heart disease (having blockages in your arteries)
  • Thyroid issues (hyperthyroidism)
  • Glaucoma
  • History of drug allergies
  • History of drug dependency
  • Diabetes and other endocrine disorders

When it comes to pregnancy, it is classified as a category C. This means that there is no hard proof yet that the drug can seriously harm the unborn child. But this does not mean that it is 100% safe to take phentermine. The best way is to consult with your doctor if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant.

You should not share your prescription of phentermine with others since they may require a different dosage than yours.

Dosage Information

Phentramin-d Diet Pills

Phentramin-D is a pill that has successfully passed trials and laboratory tests and is legally available over the counter. Phentramin-D helps you lose weight by suppressing your appetite and at the same time, boosting your metabolism. With this diet pill, stories of losing 20 to 30 pounds during its treatment is typical and expected.

Proven Formula For Faster And Safer Weight Loss

Phentramin-D is designed to mimic the effectiveness of the tried and tested diet pill, Phentermine. In fact, more than 8 out 10 Phentramin-D users can attest that it is just as effective but minus the side effects.

Phentermine is an old formulation of a controlled substance, used as a diet pill. It works the same way as Phentramin-D but throughout its use, you will experience a dozen of side effects – from uncomfortable to dangerous ones. You should not be going through stuff like that just to lose weight. Phentramin-D made it possible for you to lose weight while staying comfortable each day.

Phentramin-D Hydrochloride Ingredients And How It Works

Phentramin-D is made by Lazarus Labs. This is designed to replace the harmful Phentermine (since Phentermine is already banned by the US FDA for OTC sales). These blue and white specked tablets are meant to completely replace Phentermine – it offers the same appetite suppression and boost in metabolism minus the side effects and the drug dependency issues that were so commonly experienced with Phentermine.

The ingredients of Phentramin-D is NOT the same as phentermine. It is NOT an amphetamine.

Here’s a look at what is inside each Phentramin-D tablet:

  • 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine. This is the substance that helps prolong the effectiveness of the pills. It helps evenly distribute the effects of Phentramin-D so that within 24 hours, it is well spread in your system at all times.
  • 1,3 Dimethylypentylamine. This is the substance that triggers your brain to produce more adrenaline, therefore stimulating the “fight or flight” response and triggering the suppression of your appetite. This is also responsible for boosting your metabolism to release those stored fat cells for burning.
  • Rice Powder for the actual creation of the tablet to encase the active ingredients.
  • Gelatin to hold the ingredients together in tablet form.
  • Each 100 mg tablet contains only these – you will not see a long list of active ingredients. Phentramin-D is straightforward in addressing your weight loss issues and does only that. It is simple and yet effective – that is why you don’t experience a lot of side effects because it is really focused on doing just that.

Adipex

Reviews Leave a comment   , , , ,
adipex diet pills

Sometimes all the hard work in exercising and dieting is not enough to lose a considerable amount of weight. In cases where you need to drastically lose weight, whether this is for medical or social reasons, diet pills are helpful in reaching your target weight.

Adipex is a fast-acting diet pill that is similar to the stimulants, amphetamines. It works by affecting your central nervous system, instructing it to boost your metabolism and at the same time, suppress your appetite. Usually, Adipex is prescribed in cases of obesity where it is taken along with exercise and a healthy diet. Great care must be exercised for patients with a history of heart disease, diabetes or high cholesterol.

Although Adipex is generally used for weight loss measures, there may be other uses that are not detailed in this article.

Adipex — What Is It?

Adipex is an anorectic drug that helps your body mimic the signs and symptoms of anorexia nervosa. This effect of Adipex makes it a very fast acting diet pill.

How does it work?

When taking Adipex, your body is signaled to produce norepinephrine, the substance that tells your body to make more adrenaline. When this happens, your body immediately calls on its reserved fat cells to burn them for stored energy. In other words, your body is readying for the “fight or flight” situation. When this happens, your heart beats faster, your airways dilate and your blood pressure soars. This also means that your body is inclined to ignore other unhelpful events such as hunger. This is why it is also an appetite suppressant.

Naturally, the effects of Adipex may not be for everyone since for it to work effectively you have to endure a couple of side effects.

What You Must Know About Adipex-P

It is important for you to know that certain drugs do not mix well with Adipex in your system. These are:

  • Tranylcypromine (Parnate)
  • Isocarboxazid (Marplan)
  • Selegiline (Emsam)
  • Rasagiline (Azilect)
  • Phenelzine (Nardil)

These drugs belong to the classification of MAO inhibitors (Monoamine oxidase inhibitors), which are used as anti-depressants. Anti-depressants and Adipex don’t mix well in the human body and may trigger a series of harmful side effects such as the inability to breathe. Inform your physician if you are taking one of these before he or she prescribes you with Adipex.

Please don’t take Adipex under the following circumstances:

  • If you do not have a doctor’s prescription for it (it is a controlled substance and therefore, prescription-only)
  • If you manipulate heavy machinery since it may affect your eye sight and definitely affects your alertness
  • If you have a history of drug dependency or may be predisposed to be one
  • If you are pregnant or if you are trying to become pregnant
  • If you are a nursing mother
  • If you are under the age of 18
  • If you are already taking a different diet pill.

Adipex Precautions

Before taking Adipex, you should be aware that this powerful diet pill should be used with caution if you have the following conditions:

  • Glaucoma
  • Hyperactive thyroid
  • Uncontrolled blood pressure
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Other heart issues such as heart palpitations
  • Allergy history with certain drugs
  • Diabetes
  • Undergoing treatment for depression

For those who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, Adipex is a category C medication. This means that there are no hard evidences showing that it is harmful to the unborn child but like with any type of medication, it is best to err on the side of caution. Consult with your attending physician if you are planning on getting pregnant. This is the same case for nursing mothers.

As of this writing, Adipex is not yet given the go signal to serve as anti-obesity medication for children under the age of 18.

Dosage Information

How should you take Adipex? Adipex should be taken as a whole tablet – it is not meant to be pulverized and mixed into drinks nor is it ok to cut it into half to “save” on the dosage. It is designed to be taken as a whole pill with a glass of water along with an empty stomach.

  • To help alleviate some of Adipex’s side effects, we have some tips for you on how you should take it everyday:
  • Take it at least 30 minutes before your first meal of the day.
  • Take it as farthest away from your bedtime as possible to help avoid instances of insomnia
  • Take it for no more than 8 weeks since it is designed to be just a short term medication, not a daily supplement.

Keep your bottle of Adipex in a cool dry place, away from temperature changes and heat, specifically. Moisture is also a no-no and you should not give Adipex to anyone else in your family. It should only be for your own personal consumption.

Important Adipex-P Questions

What if I miss a dose?
It is normal to miss a dose of your medication – especially with Adipex that needs to be taken at particular times of the day. If you missed your dose today but you are still at least 8 hours before your next dose, take your dose now. But if your missed dose and the next one is too close to one another, just skip your forgotten dose altogether.

It is important NOT to overdose when on Adipex and you should never ever double your dose, even if you forgot your dose for a few days already.

What are the signs of an overdose?
It is just as important for you to know the symptoms of an overdose as you should know the typical side effects. Normally, overdose symptoms are exaggerated versions of the pill’s side effects. Contact your hospital or attending physician at once if you experience one or more of the following overdose signs:

What can you take with Adipex?
You can take any type of food with Adipex. In fact, you are encouraged to remind yourself to eat (a healthy diet) while on Adipex. Sometimes the appetite is so suppressed that patients forget to eat at all.

What you cannot take with Adipex, apart from the list of medications above, is alcohol. Adipex already affects your central nervous system and if you mix it with alcohol, you are greatly compromising your judgment and alertness.

  • Changes in your libido and menstrual cycle

Drug Interactions

Drugs that are designed to treat depression, diabetes and high blood pressure should be taken into consideration when you are prescribed Adipex. Let your attending physician know that you are taking them so that he can make an informed assessment of your condition.


Ephedra

ephedra diet pills

Ephedra, pronounced as eh-FEED-druh, is the generic name of diet pills that are marketed in combination with other active ingredients. It is basically a stimulant that gives you energy to burn more calories than you normally would. It is a fast acting diet pill that should NOT be given for more than 7 consecutive days, as sanctioned by the US FDA.

Ephedra – What Is It?

Ephedra works by boosting your metabolism so that you burn more and more calories with the same amount of effort that you exert everyday. It has a hyperactive effect in your body in the sense that it makes every part of your body work overtime. Obviously, this is not meant to be a long-term medication and is meant to temporarily treat obesity. It can help you jump-start your weight loss process with the initial weight loss and then you can continue with other conservative methods later on.

Ephedra is not just a diet pill. It is used to treat a variety of issues such as:

  • Asthma
  • Nasal swelling
  • Nasal congestion
  • Central nervous system stimulant

Ephedra is a herbal medication. It has proven effects in increasing your heart rate and elevating your blood pressure. Since it boosts your metabolism and your body’s functions, it also helps dilate your airways, hence the use for nasal congestion and asthmatic cases. Think of Ephedra as a stimulant that works like steroids – it magnifies the processes within your body.

What You Need to Know About Ephedra

Before taking Ephedra, you must know that you cannot use it if you have a history of:

  • Allergic reactions to medications
  • Use of MAO inhibitors or anti depressants, especially in the last two weeks
  • Tumor in your adrenal glands or any other hormonal imbalance
  • You also cannot use Ephedra if you are pregnant, nursing or planning on getting pregnant.

Apart from these, there are certain types of medications that should not interact with Ephedra. These are medications for circulatory and heart disease, allergy medications, diabetes treatment, hormonal replacement therapy and fertility medications.

Beta blockers or medications that are designed to lower your blood pressure will be in direct conflict with the effects of Ephedra. Since Ephedra boosts your blood pressure and heart rate, it is best that you consult with your physician if you are being treated for high blood pressure.

Ephedra Precautions

Ephedra is not a drug that can be prescribed to anyone. Ephedra is a powerful drug and it should only be used as directed by your physician. Usually, Ephedra is instructed to be used with the following conditions:

  • Do not overdose or double your dose, even if you have forgotten past doses.
  • Use Ephedra only as directed.
  • Read the package instructions carefully before use.
  • Alert your physician if one or more overdose signs are present or if you suspect that you are having an allergic reaction to the drug.
  • You should not operate heavy machinery when you are on ephedra. It can cause nausea and dizziness plus impaired eye sight.
  • Do not use Ephedra for more than 7 days – it is just a short term treatment drug, not a daily vitamin.
  • Some forms of Ephedra have added alcohol or sugar, such as the liquid versions of it. If you have diabetes, please contact your physician if you have been prescribed the liquid Ephedra.
  • It is not for the elderly (those above 60 years old) and not for children under 18 years of age.
  • This is not to be used by nursing mothers.
  • Alert your physician if you feel that Ephedra is not working as it should. You may have developed a tolerance for it.
  • Do not use ephedra if you are already on a different kind of diet pill or if your current diet pill has Ma-Huang or other forms of Ephedra.

Dosage Information

The dosage of Ephedra greatly varies per preparation of the drug. Most of the time, the maximum dose is 24 mg of Ephedra within a 24-hour period. You may be taking smaller amounts of Ephedra scattered throughout the day or you may take a single dose of it every morning. One thing is certain, you cannot take more than 24 mg everyday of Ephedra for more than 7 days.

What if I miss a dose?
Do not take another dose of Ephedra if you missed your dose. Just take the next one according to schedule. Even if you miss two days in a row, just take it the next day and just extend your treatment for another day.

Ephedra is such a potent diet formulation that under no circumstance should you double your dose.

What are the signs of an overdose?

Additional Information

To avoid Ephedra from malfunctioning, make sure that you store it in a cool, dry place, away from drafts. Store it away from sources of heat and moisture and keep it away from children. Do not store it in your bathroom – it is best to store it in your shelf in the bedroom or safely hidden away in your kitchen pantry. Do not share your dose of Ephedra with anyone else, even if you suspect that you have a similar health background. Every patient of Ephedra must be assessed by a licensed physician and must never share his dosage with anyone.
