i heard other people lost tons of weight really fast. my weight slowly came off. of course I gained half back. and going to doctor now due to still after not taking it for months, having racing heart, short of breath, anxiety. which started halfway into my usage of the medicine. i do not recommend this to others.

Bontril is definitely helping me to lose weight. The only issue I have with it is that it causes me to feel extremely irritable. I suppose this is because it is a stimulant and those usually increase anxiety. I feel emotional and irritable. I am hoping that these side effects subside because the drug is helping with my weight loss efforts.

I have been on the program of Bontril with a low fat, low calorie diet and have lost 25lbs. I feel great and my hunger has decreased. If you decide to take this drug, remember to drink lots of water. It helps with the dry mouth and digestive system.

I've been taking it for 9weeks and have lost 11 pounds. I'm think it actually does work better than any diet, over the counter pill and excercise I've tried, but not satisfied I haven't lost more yet, which is why my doctor just increased my dose. A person is only suppose to be on it 3-4months. I've stopped overeating and snacking but watch-out if you don't drink a LOT of water (at least 500ml every hour), bad dry-mouth but REALLY bad constipation leading to extreme abdominal pain or nausea until I drink water and 'it' passes! I don't take it after 5pm or I have insomnia and my heart beats very hard sometimes, but I have energy to exercise after work which is so important, and I don't feel jittery. I'd reccommend it for anyone that doesn't have any health problems.

Comment from: msdresoto, 25-34 on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: July 06

I was given this medication because I have gained about 20 pounds that I cannot lose. I follow a low fat, low carb, very healthy diet. I excercise daily. I took Bontril for about a month and did not lose any weight but the worst thing is it gave me the worst case of constipation I have ever experienced. I was constantly unable to make a bowel movement and it became so bad that I had to go to the E.R. for help with extraction.
