Is Phentramine Safe?

Specific Phentramine Warnings and Precautions

Warnings and precautions to be aware of concerning the safety of Phentramine include the following:
 
  • Phentramine contains caffeine and other stimulants, which can make anxiety disorders worse. If you notice increased anxiety while taking it, you should avoid Phentramine products.
     
  • The stimulants in Phentramine can make some heart conditions worse. If you have any heart problems, do not take this supplement without first talking to your healthcare provider.
     
  • There is some evidence that caffeine can affect blood sugar. If you have diabetes, check with your healthcare provider before taking Phentramine.
     
  • If you have glaucoma, do not take Phentramine without first talking to your healthcare provider. The stimulants in the supplement can make glaucoma worse.
     
  • If you have high blood pressure, Phentramine may increase your blood pressure even more.
     
  • The caffeine in Phentramine can increase calcium loss through your urine. This may be a problem for people who have osteoporosis. Check with your healthcare provider, as you may need extra calcium when taking the supplement.
     
  • Ginseng (an active ingredient in Phentramine) can increase the risk of bleeding, which can be a problem if you have a bleeding disorder or if you take "blood thinners".
     
  • If you have any health problems or concerns, check with your healthcare provider before taking Phentramine.
     
  • Phentramine can interact with a number of medications (see Phentramine Drug Interactions).
     
  • It is not known if Phentramine is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding (see Phentramine and Pregnancy and Phentramine and Breastfeeding).
     
  • If you decide to use supplements, what you see on the label may not reflect what is in the bottle. For example, some herbal supplements have been found to be contaminated with heavy metals or prescription drugs, and some have been found to have much more or less of the featured ingredient than their label states.
Therefore, make sure the manufacturer of your Phentramine product is trusted and reputable. It is a good sign if a manufacturer abides by the rules of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). It is also a good sign if a product has the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) seal, which means that the product has been independently tested and shown to contain the correct ingredients in the amounts listed on the label. Your pharmacist is a good resource for information about which manufacturers are the most reputable.
