PhenTabz is a non-prescription weight loss pill that comes from the manufacturer Gentech Pharmaceuticals and is marketed as an alternative to Phentermine. According to the official product website, PhenTabz reduces a person’s appetite, providing them with greater control over the food they eat and portion size. In addition, the manufacturer claims that the product increases energy levels to help users get through the day and to help them keep up with exercise goals. It is also said to boost metabolism and fat burning.
At the time this review was written, there was no ingredients list on the website for this product. However, listed on the bottle label, underneath the product name, is “(Ampheta-HCL)”. This would imply, although it isn’t stated for certain on the official product site, that one of the active ingredients in the formula is Ampheta-HCL, which is a non-prescription synthetic amphetamine.
The information on the official product page for the PhenTabz site is not very detailed and it is also unclear. When this review was written, the manufacturer listed three products including PhenTabz, PhenTabz Teen and PhenTabz RX on its site. In its FAQ section, the site states that “Our original formula, PhenTabz RX™ is still available by prescription only.” Meanwhile, on Gentech Pharmaceuticals official site it clearly states: “PhenTabz RX is not a drug – it is a designer pharmacological supplement comprised of safe and effective ingredients.”
The bottom line is that none of the PhenTabz products are prescription drugs. They are supplements with the RX version being made available only through physicians. However, just because a product can only be purchased from a doctor does not make it a prescription. There is a significant difference.
The manufacturer claims that the product is safe, but does say that while it is not typical to experience adverse side effects, it is possible for users to experience dry mouth or sleeplessness. Although there is no ingredients list provided, side effects like sleeplessness indicates that the formula contains some type of stimulant, which is likely what cause its potential appetite suppression and energy boosting effects.
Although the manufacturer talks about the product’s clinical design, it is important to note that this is not the same as a product being clinically proven, which it is not.
Due to the lack of information and ingredients list on the PhenTabz site and the conflicting information provided, it is strongly recommended that you first speak with your healthcare provider before taking this weight loss supplement.
