  3. How many pills will I need to order?
    That depend on how much weight you are aiming to lose and of course how much you can afford to pay up front. The more you can afford, the more you will save. If you need 3 month supply and can afford it, always order 3 months worth of pills straight off to avoid the extra shipping cost and to take advantage of the bulk buy savings.
  4. What is Phentermine?
    Phentermine, the generic name for ADIPEX-P and IONAMIN comes in immediate release or time-release formulas. Immediate release pills enter your blood stream as soon as you take them, and time-release capsules release their medication into your body over an extended period of time, generally 8 or 12 hours. As you can see, there are many popular brand names of PHENTERMINE. Nonetheless, all of the above named compounds are considered clinically equivalent in producing weight loss.
  5. What is Ionamin?
    IONAMIN is PHENTERMINE set in resin. The resin allows the compound to be released slowly into the blood stream. Some patients prefer it because they believe it to be associated with fewer side effects, others do not. It is the only PHENTERMINE resin on the market. It comes in 30 mg and 15 mg capsules. The 15 mg capsule is gray and yellow, the 30 mg capsule is all yellow. Each capsule is labeled "IONAMIN"
  6. What is the difference between Xenical, Phentermine and Meridia?
    Here goes our attempt to compare the 3 main prescription diet pills in laymans terms. (only 2 of these ie Meridia (reductil) and Xenical are licensed for use in the EU)
    The following cannot be taken in isolation though, so please refer to the full info and contraindications available on your chosen suppliers site for more detail. Also, please do not construe any of this information as advice. You should refer to a health care provider if you are unsure which pill is right for you.
     
    Meridia (Reductil)
    This medication was treated with some concern when it was first released / approved, as it is "Serotoninergic" agent. This is the same general classification as "Fen" (Fenfluramine & Dexfenluramine); 2 drugs withdrawn from the market after they were associated with heart disease. However, unlike "Fen", Meridia (Sibutramine) does not get inside the hypothalamus cells to boost the release of certain agents (as Fen does), but rather works outside these cells and simply stops these agents being reabsorbed.
    Meridia has proved relatively side-effect free, and even has beneficial effects on glycemic control and cholesterol. Unlike some other weight loss drugs, it is almost universally accepted suitable for long term administration / treatment.
    One other benefit of Meridia seems to be that it was originally investigated as an antidepressant (but proved more effective as an obesity medication!). However, many users have commented on a slight, but noticeable feeling of well being whilst taking this drug.
     
    Phentermine (AKA Adipex & Ionamin)
    Phentermine is an "Anorexiant" medication, which are attributed with offering the fastest / greatest initial weight loss (In conjunction with a strict diet and exercise, an average respondent loss of around 12 kg / 26 lbs in only 24 to 36 weeks has been studied). Also, in the trials, only 5.5% of people failed to complete the course through adverse reactions.
    Phentermine has had a bad associative name with Fenfluramine & Dexfenluramine (commonly known as "Fen", thus "Phen/Fen" when they were used with Phentermine). They were combined as they act differently on the body, and produced much greater results. However, due to the way Fen works, it was deemed to cause serious heart disease in some patients, and was withdrawn from the market. Of course, this left a bad taste with Phentermine. But the FDA state on their information page, that no cases of heart disease have been subsequently associated with Phentermine alone.
    Most authoritative sources believe that Phentermine is only suitable for initial weight loss / treatment, not ongoing weight maintenance / prescription.
     
    Xenical
    Xenical (Orlistat) is unique amongst the diet pills, because it works as a stomach lipase inhibitor (a fat blocker). It prevents these cells from absorbing / converting 30% of dietary fat. Because it does work completely differently to the other drugs, there are arguments for its combined use with either Phentermine or Meridia for the seriously obese.
    Xenical is recognized as a long term use medication by virtually every authority.
    Side effects with Xenical have been shown to be minimal. With undigested fat excretions being the main "problem". Also, multivitamin supplement use is recommended when taking Xenical, as it does affect absorption of these too.
  7. What is the difference between a Generic and Brand name drug?
    When a pharmaceutical company develops a new drug, it gives the drug two names. The first, its generic name represents the chemical structure or chemical form of the drug. The generic name of a drug never changes. For example, PHENTERMINE is a generic name. The second name given to a drug is its brand name. This is the name given to the medicine by the pharmaceutical company and has nothing to do with its chemical form. For example some brand names of Phentermine are ADIPEX-P and IONAMIN. They are both fairly similar in that they are composed of PHENTERMINE, and subsequently given different names by the companies that manufacturer them. No other pharmaceutical company can ever use the brand name of the drug at any time.
  8. Is Phentermine 37.5 mg the same as Adipex 37.5 mg ?
    Adipex is a brand name of the generic phentermine. Rather like Dispirin is a brand name of Aspirin.
  9. Can I take Xenical and Phentermine together?
    PHENTERMINE is an appetite suppressant. XENICAL inhibits fat absorption into the body. So both may be used in conjunction with each other for those who are seriously obese. Naturally the final decision as to whether the combination is suitable for you will be that of the licensed physician who prescribes your online order based on your online consultaion form.
  10. Is Xenical the same as Xenadrine?
    No Xenical is an FDA & NHS approved prescription only medicine which inhibits the bodies ability to store fat. It does this by preventing up to 30% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by the body and this fat is then eliminated in the stools. Please read the info here for more information. Xendarine is not an approved medicine and is not prescribed in the UK or the US. It claims to increase your bodies ability to burn fat.. you can find out more about Xenadrine and other non prescription drugs here.
  11. What is Meridia?
    Meridia (generic name: sibutramine; pronounced "sih-BYOO-tra meen"), is a serotonin and neopinephrine reuptake inhibitor that works by affecting appetite control centers in the brain. In medical studies with significantly overweight people (people with BMIs of at least 27, and health conditions like high blood pressure; people with a BMI of at least 30 with no other diseases), Meridia, along with a reduced-calorie diet, produced significant reductions in body weight. Meridia should be used as part of a comprehensive weight loss program that is supervised by a doctor and includes a reduced-calorie diet and appropriate physical activity. With this combination, you should expect gradual and sustained weight loss.
