At the time that this review was written, the site that claimed to be the official website for Fedramine offered very little information on the product. Although it did not provide a supplement facts sheet for the diet pill it listed, Citrus Aurantium, Metrobromine, Green Tea, Chromium (as cloride), White Willow Bark and Guarana as the ingredients.
Based on this list of ingredients one truth about this weight loss supplement is revealed right away: its formula is not unique. These ingredients can be found in several OTC diet pills on the market today. It is not uncommon to find diet pills containing citrus aurantium (synephrine/bitter orange), green tea, and guarana (containing caffeine).
Moreover, none of these ingredients have ever been scientifically proven safe or effective for weight loss. Therefore, beyond having the potential to provide a boost in energy and mental alertness, there is no guarantee that taking Fedramine will lead to fat loss.
Users of Fedramine are instructed to take one capsule 30 minutes prior to breakfast and 30 minutes prior to lunch, each time with water. Users are cautioned to take the second dose a minimum of 10 to 12 hours before bedtime and are warned not to take 2 doses at once.
Although not stated on the official website, the likely reason why users are cautioned not to take the pill too close to bed is due to its stimulant ingredients, which may lead to sleep disturbances or insomnia. The two primary stimulants in Fedramine are synephrine (a natural occurring stimulant in citrus aurantium) and caffeine (found in guarana).
Although no quantities were provided for each ingredient, it would not be surprising for this diet pill to provide enough of a stimulant effect that not only is it likely to increase your energy, but it may also increase the risk of other unpleasant stimulant-related side effects like sleeplessness, anxiety, headache, jitters, heart palpatations, etc. It should also be noted that the combination of synephrine and caffeine may increase the risk of cardiovascular effects, such as high blood pressure, fainting, stroke and heart attack.
Additionally, other potential side effects of this diet pill include stomach and digestive upset, a common side effect of white willow bark, while chromium may cause low blood sugar. Prior to taking Fedramine, you should first consult with your doctor. This is especially important for pregnant or nursing women and anyone with an allergy to aspirin, as white willow bark contains salicin, which is similar to asprin.
At the time that this review was written, a one month supply of Fedramine cost $45.00.
