Phentermine 37.5mg was one of the first anti-obesity drug approved by the US. FDA. Doctors were allowed to prescribe it for usage up-to 12 weeks. Being a strong appetite suppressant, it helped majority of users to lose significant weight quickly. Despite its success, Phentermine still remains as a controversial drug due to side effects and fake online Pharma scams.
Every responsible person should study the effects of a drug to his or her body before deciding to take it. This goes for nutritional supplements, medication or even diet pills. When taking any form of medication, you should first weigh the pros and cons of the substance so that you can decide if it will be good for you or no.

Phentermine V/s Clenbuterol
I have already written great amount of details about Clenbuterol on this site’s home page. Additionally, you can read about Clen’s side effects, Clen Cycles and Clenbuterol brand you can buy. So, I’m not going to rehash the same phrases here. Also read about Clenbutrol which is my suggested Clen alternative.
Here is the summery of Clenbuterol V/s Phentermine
- Phetermine is a approved weight loss drug with millions of happy customers.
- Clenbuterol is a illegal fat burner never approved for human usage. However, millions of people across the world love it and admire it.
- Both Clen and Phen users have reported many side effects.

How Phentermine Works?
Phentermine works by stimulating your brain to induce the “fight or flight” mode. This means that your body will be supplied with reserve energy, similar to an energy boost or an adrenaline rush, to get you through the things you need to do. When your body is in this mode, it burns fat in order to supply you with energy and this means it accesses the stored fat in your body.
This also means that your appetite is suppressed, since you do not have time to eat in a “fight or flight” scenario. It is all about supporting your body’s movements during this time. This also means that the increased activity results to a higher body temperature, higher heart and pulse rate and an elevated blood pressure since your body is working extra hard to meet the demands.
Side Effects of Phentermine?
- Increased heart rate which can be felt as palpitations or tachycardia or even arrhythmia
- Elevated blood pressure (hence it is not a good idea if you have coronary heart disease to take phentermine)
- Hyperactivity or restlessness due to the increased energy in your body
- Insomnia (which is a result of the hyperactivity)
- Tremors and in rare cases, convulsions
- Changes in bowel movement
- Mood swings (due to the change in body chemistry)
- Headaches, nausea, dizziness
- Changes in sex drive (also due to the change in body chemistry)
All these side effects are direct results of phentermine’s way of making you lose weight – via burning extra fat in your body and by suppressing your appetite so that you do not eat to store more fat in your body.
The great number of side effects makes phentermine a go-to solution only in dire situations, where an obese person really needs to jumpstart his weight loss program to give him a head start.
Take Phentermine without a Doctor’s Prescription?
Yes, but risky. Phentermine is a controlled substance that the FDA requires a prescription before you can have access to it. But this does not mean that it is impossible to get hold of phentermine without a prescription.
Online pharmacies do sell some types of phentermine but the responsibility of how often you should you take it and at what doses you should follow fall entirely up to you.
What is Phen375?
Phen375 is a reformulated version of phentermine. You can buy it online without prescription. Phen375 uses a combination of compounds that mimics the effects of phentermine, minus most of the negative effects. Therefore, it can be bought online and is not banned by the FDA.
Phen375 came to market during 2008 and still remains a top seller. So, it doesn’t have glorious users history like Phentermine. However, it is way better than ‘latest & greatest’ supplements which pop-us daily in dozen numbers.
Here are several reasons why you should use Phen375 in your weight loss program:
- Rapid weight loss immediately seen in just a few weeks. In fact, you can even feel the surge of energy (which means fat cells being burned) within 20 minutes of intake.
- Lesser side effects than phentermine. This means lesser incidents of tachycardia, agitation and restlessness, headaches and dizziness.
- Provides a more consistent weight loss effect . Other drugs “rush” the weight loss but cannot maintain the rate of weight loss for extended periods of time.
- Decreased appetite is another positive effect of Phen375. A decrease in appetite will help you keep the momentum of your weight loss program since not only are you burning more stored fat, and not storing more fat (due to increased metabolism), you are also making your body eat less.
Clen or Phen?
Well, it is very difficult for me to decide the true winner. If you want to lose weight without hard-work then go for Phen375 (light physical activity is enough). On the other hand, if you want get sexy/ripped body then go for Crazybulks Clenbutrol (exercise must). Personally, I do not suggest weight loss without exercise. So, you go and figure right one for you.
