Hi,
I need some information on Xenadrine and Phentermine. Will these pills accelarate weight loss or am I wasting my time. Are they sold over the counter or prescription. I am losing 0.5 to 1kg a week but wants to lose 1.5 to 2kg a week. What slimming product will help me.

Thank you

Inge,

Xenadrine is a completely natural product that claims to have "thermogenic" effects and have and "incomparable fat-burning ability" due to an increased metabolic rate . It is most effective if used with and intense exercise program and as part of a controlled diet. This is available over the counter.
However, phentermine (Duromine) is a prescription drug that is habit forming. You can become physically and psychologically dependent on this medication, and withdrawal effects may occur if you stop taking it suddenly after several weeks of continuous use. It should be used strictly as prescribed by a doctor. It works by decreasing your appetite and, in combination with diet and exercise, to help you lose weight
