Over the years diet pills with Phentermine has been very popular and widely used. It may be common to find diet pills with an amphetamine-like compound that enables the weight loss process. Often times amphetamine-like compound is used to help suppress appetites and help lose weight. Phentermine or similar amphetamine-like compounds works as an appetite suppressant by stimulating the release of brain chemicals, which reduce sensations of hunger. In fact, it seems that these types of diet pills are quite effective in suppressing appetites.
Although these pills have an effective appetite suppressing results in your diet, it can also produce some scary side effects. Some common side effects include increased heart rate, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood pressure, palpitations, restlessness, irritability, nervousness, insomnia, and also cause physical and psychological dependence. Some less common side effects include hallucinations, seizures, severe headaches, blurred vision and vomiting. Unfortunately, the scariest side effect is that it can lead to dangers to your heart.
The most recent mention of this drug in diet pills was from “Fen-Phen.” In the early 1990s, there were 24 reported cases of heart valve disease from Fen-Phen users. Studies later revealed that over 30% of users of Fen-Phen were prone to abnormal valve findings. FDA pulled this drug from the market, but did not require the diet pill industry to remove phentermine from diet pills. It leaves one to wonder whether is it worth it to risk so much for trying diet pills. Having phentermine diet pills does not necessary mean that it will cause these side effects, but in my opinion it may not be worth the risk.
