Phentirimine is a non-prescription diet supplement that has been designed to look very similar to the prescription diet drug Phentermine, right down to its white and blue colored capsules. The claim is that it provides all of the benefits that Phentermine provides, but without the side effects. Phentirimine is used to suppress the appetite and is meant to be used in conjunction with a diet and exercise plan for the most effective weight loss results.
At the time of this review, there was no official website for Phentirimine, there is only a website that has been set up to sell the product, which provides very limited information about it. That being said, the recommended dose is to take two capsules daily – one before breakfast or morning exercise and the second in the mid afternoon. A 30 day supply (60 capsules) is available for $79.99.
No Phentirimine Ingredients List
Right away, one of the biggest red flags regarding this product is that its ingredients are not listed. All that is known about the pill, based on what is written on the front of the bottle, is that it is an all-natural supplement that has no banned amphetamines, ephedra or speed. While it is comforting to know that the pills do not contain these banned ingredients, the fact that it does not list any of the ingredients within the formula is not a positive sign. Not to mention, it’s not safe to take any product when you don’t know what is in it.
Since, there is no way to guarantee the effectiveness or safety of this product, any claims made about it cannot be taken seriously. Furthermore, without knowing the ingredients, there is no way to know what side effects it may produce.
Consult With Your Doctor Before Taking OTC Diet Pills
While you really should look into what ingredients are in Phentirimine before taking it, you should always keep in mind that regardless of what substances may be in the formula, you should always consult with your doctor prior to taking any dietary supplement for weight loss. This is especially important if you are taking any medications or if you have an existing medical condition, such as a history of high blood pressure or heart problems.
Due to the fact that there is very limited information about this OTC Phentermine alternative, it would likely be in your best interest to avoid taking Phentirimine. Any diet pill that hides its ingredients list and claims to provide all the benefits of a prescription drug without providing any evidence to the fact, is not a product that should be trusted.
Update August 2020
Phentirimine reviews continue to exist, but this product can no longer be purchased. It is highly likely that it has been discontinued, which has been the case for many nonprescription diet pills that over the years jumped on the trend of claiming to be Phentermine or Adipex alternatives.
Believing False Claims Can Have Dangerous Consequences
Claims about a product may help you to decide whether or not you want to try it, but for the sake of your health and to prevent wasting your money, it is important to find out if there is any truth to what is being said (good or bad) about a product. With that said, when it come to claims, keep the following in mind:
- There is a difference between researched ingredients and proven ingredients – It is important that you take care not to believe in unsubstantiated claims. Simply because a manufacturer claims that their diet pill is a quality product with effective or proven ingredients, this isn’t necessarily the case. Even if ingredients have been studied, there is a difference between being researched and being proven.
- Be wary of products that lack an ingredients list – In the case of diet pills like Phentirimine, when no ingredients list is provided, it is even more important to ignore the claims that are made as the manufacturer isn’t bothering to disclose what substances have been used in the formula, so you can’t even investigate them on your own, which automatically seems like there is something to hide.
- Avoid OTC diet pills that claim to work like phentermine – No over the counter weight management aid has ever been proven to work like phentermine. Therefore, any manufacturer of these OTC products that makes this claim, like Phentirimine, is only doing so for marketing purposes. Additionally, be advised that many so-called nonprescription phentermine alternatives typically contain a high amount of caffeine or multiple stimulant substances, which can increase your risk of unwanted side effects.
If you want to take a diet pill that will help you with your weight loss goal by providing you with an energy boost and appetite suppression, choose a product from a reputable company that does not hide the product ingredients, provides clinical research to support the information it provides and that offers a money-back guarantee.
