Marketed as an over-the-counter (OTC) alternative to popular prescription appetite suppressant diet pills like Phentermine, Phen Thin MAX contains a variety of unproven ingredients for weight loss including: .
While it has the potential to boost your energy due to its caffeine content, which may be beneficial for fat burning when combined with physical activity, there is no solid scientific evidence that any of Phen Thin MAX’s ingredients will lead to or aid in effective or safe weight loss.
Users are instructed to gradually increase their dose of Phen Thin MAX, starting with only 1 capsule for the first three days, which should be taken on an empty stomach prior to breakfast. On day four, users should take a second pill 6 – 8 hours after breakfast. On day five or six they can take the maximum dose of 3 pills by taking 2 pills in the morning and 1 in the evening.
These dosage instructions (which can be found directly on the bottle) raise concern. The reason is that this pill contains caffeine. In fact, the amount of caffeine it contains per serving (135 mg per 1 capsule) is about equal to the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee. Considering users are recommended to eventually take a pill in the evening, this conflicts with the pills claim that you can “lose weight while you sleep.” It’s far more likely that this product will increase your risk of insomnia, as well as other unpleasant stimulant-related side effects like jitters, anxiety, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, etc.
At the time that this review was written, a single bottle of Phen Thin MAX (90 capsules – a one month supply) sold on Amazon for $39.99 and no official website existed for the product.
If you are interested in making Phen Thin MAX a part of your weight loss regimen, you should first consult with your doctor to learn more about this product to determine if it is right for you or even worth your money and time. You should also inform your physician if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, such as cardiac arrhythmia, diabetes, seizures, heart or thyroid disease, or high or low blood pressure, prior to taking this diet pill.
