Hi Guys...I have just ordered some diet pills from the USA called Fenterdren, and I was wondering if anyone has tried them and if they aggrivated anxiety or panic attacks? I am currently taking a high dose antidepressant and Naltrexone for x alcohol abuse. I have heard the diet pills are super good and give you high energy and weightloss quickly...Just hopeing anyone had info on diet pills and a connection to anxiety?  gillxx

Morning Gilly

I am the queen of ordering diet whatever, I have a Masters in Weight Watchers and I am still over weight.

I have bought them all, even was on the Fen-Phen through a diet clinic. As you may know that was a drug that was yanked off the market and law suits are still pending as it was dangerous.  I have tried the green tea tabs and many OTC and for me, none of them worked. Yup, I have tried the natural products from the nutrition stores too.

They all come with the disclaimer that you must cut your calorie intake and exercise.

IMHO, Weight Watchers is one of the best choices if you are looking to lose weight and exercise for increased energy.

Yes, I have even ordered the berri juices.............

I know we all want to believe in the testimonials on the sites but mostly it is about the money going into the pockets of the manufacturers.

I wish you luck as each person is different and I would advise letting your physician know you are adding this OTC med to your other meds............Please be safe.

You are important to all of us.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

One thing with some of the perscription diet pills (app- suppression) I have tried is that it does increase your heart rate and can make you feel very nervous.
Plus I would be extremely leery of any over the counter med that cost more then the perscription med.
Seriously, this stuff you ordered costs twice as much as the percription phentermine I have taken.
Sounds like someone is trying to sell you part of the Brooklyn Bridge to me.

Especially if the anti-depressant is Mono-Amine Oxidase inhibitors (MAOI) make sure you consult your doc before taking anything. THe diet pill contains a type of caffeine which is supposed to be gentler than on het body than noraml caffeine but stil not great to increase caffeine intake if your struggling with anxiety.

gilly,

i've never tried that specific diet pill, but it sounds like it might contain ephedrine? (is that how that's spelled??) i thought they took that off the market, but maybe i'm just thinking if fen-phen.

anyway! i have tried ephedrine pills in the past and they made me VERY anxious and nervous (and this is before i had my first official panic attack and was diagnosed with anxiety!), so if these pills do include ephedrine, please be careful!

i also agree that you should definitely talk to dr. or pharmacist before taking them to avoid any drug interaction issues.
love and hugs

badfish,

No I have not tried proactol, a fat burner right?  But I have tried Alli..............twice with no luck because I do not follow a healthy diet or get the right amount of exercise.

Right now I am doing online WW, first but I know I am up against my AD so as I wean off the AD hopefully my own metabolism will kcik in and also I won't feel so tired.

Kitt.

have you tried Crevax? i ordered it on their website and tried it. it suppresses your appetite and at the same time burns fats. it's safe to use, all ingredients are natural and ingredients are used with the supplements athletes are taking.

Good Morning countingalways

Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum.

I am always leary of ordering the OTC magic weight loss diet meds as the ones I have bought  come with a print out that says to be successful you must eat a well balanced diet and exercise.

I do not believe in a magical pill and taking them when you are on many Rx meds should be discussed first with your physician. Each person has the right to make this decision for themselves but please be careful on your choices. :-) Also if the fat burners were magical no one would be struggling with their weight.......just my 2 cents.

Thank you for your input as it is appreciated.

Kitt

I have found that all of the over the counter weight loss supplements say to exercise and eat properly. So I am beginning to think that is the key. Not the pill. I hope that this works for you. And please consult with your physician before taking. Just to be safe.

Best wishes to a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

I agree. . . All of those pills are garbage and if you doc feels like you need to lose weight that bad for health, you will be put on something safer and monitored. . . The key is to just exercise, eat healthy and of course my favorite, lots of water daily :)
