Cross Top Pills

Don Says:

I am wondering if you can still obtain prescriptions for these diet pills, and if so, where can they be obtained?

I'm sorry, but I don't know what you are referring to.

Do you happen to remember the actual medication name, or the active ingredient?

I believe they were called Benzedrine or in non-medical vernacular, bennies or cross tops. In the 1970s I suffered a serious back injury and had to quickly take off some weight, so a doctor prescribed them for me and they worked perfectly. Can you tell me if the old Benzedrine diet pills are still legal and available in the U.S.?
Thank you

From what I can find, it appears that it is no longer available.


However, it was closely relate to Amphetamines and there are many of those that are still on the market, which you may wish to ask your doctor about:


Is there anything else I can help with?

The white round x top amphetamines were given to our soldiers in Vietnam to stay awake for 3 day shifts in the jungle. Don't believe they are available. Last time I heard of them was in 1980.

Cross tops speed pills were little white pills with a cross on one side and 100 on the other - known as a caffeine drug in the early 1980s.

Phentermine is the new diet pill. Look up the information. It is an Rx drug.

I was given dexadrine, commonly called dexi hearts or just hearts, six per load out. There was also darvon and Tylenol 3 given out at the time I picked up med kit. There was other pharmies available to us up to and including thorazine. . This was going on in the years after the Vietnam War.

Yes. Phentermine is basically an updated version. I use it for weight loss and it works great. Too be honest I don't think it's as "fun" as cross tops were in the mid 80s. But I was 16- 20 at that time, so everything was more fun.

In Wisconsin they were called beans, or white cross, circa 1979

I haven’t seen Benzedrine since I looked in my grandmas medicine cabinet in to her Seconals and Nembutals (you’d be hard pressed to find any of those prescribed today if they are even on the market) Adderall or Dexedrine would be the closest to Benzedrine. The problem is it is only FDA approved for add/adhd. If you can find a doctor to prescribe it off label though (or even Dexedrine which I think works better for weight loss) that would be your best bet. Actually Dexedrine was originally prescribed for weight loss as obetrol but then rebranded as an ADHD/ADD medication in the 90s I think.

There are weight loss clinics that prescribe Phentermine, but if you’ve ever had an amphetamine based medication before it will feel like Mountain Dew.

Oh I forgot, vyvanse is prescribed for binge eating disorder and it’s converted to d-amphetamine in the body so a doctor would prescribe it for weight loss, but it’s expensive as it’s still under patent.

Oh and there’s desoxyn which is pharma grade methamphetamine but I think you need severe narcolepsy for that one.

Good luck.
