Phentramine Is A Scam

Yesterday I saw a 49 year old mildly overweight woman for the first visit whose blood pressure was 170/117 with a pulse of 77. She said she had no history of high blood pressure, saw her primary care doctor annually and took no medicines. I asked about coffee and caffeine. She thought better of herself and admitted she had been taking "Phentramine" which she had obtained in a local GNC type store. She took two pills twice a day.
Children, children. Phentramine is a swindle taking advantage of the fact that you can’t spell. I thought it was available only on line. I was alarmed to learn you can buy it off the shelf.
The ingredients are:
- 2-phenylethylamine, a nasal decongestant,
- synephrine, another nasal decongestant
- yohimbine, a supposed sex-stimulating herbal stimulant
Phentramine unacceptably raises blood pressure.
Don’t be a fool. Phentermine, what I prescribe, is safe, old, tested and cheap. Besides that, it’s not the pills that get you to lose weight, safely; it’s my advice (the Ten Orders) and your intelligence and character. Obesity is a result of your chosen behavior, not genes or destiny.
I offer as proof that there is only one obese female and no obese males in the 1967 yearbook of the University of Maryland. If obesity were genetic, there would be more fat people in that book.
