Didrex not banned

I just received a prescription from my primary care doctor. I asked him for it and he agreed to a few month trial and monitor blood pressure. I'm about 50 pounds overweight. I had taken didrex in the 80's and it worked well! He prescribed benzphetamine a generic form. It has the same effect as the brand name I used to take. It is pink, round and stamped with k40 on it. I'm sure there are other generic brands. The answer to is it banned is no, but my pharmacy had to order it. It's certainly not banned in tennessee!

Didrex off market

This BIG BROTHER, NANNY US GOVT has banned Didrex. I can't imagine a more effective diet medication, though I had noticed in recent years, it was not as strong as it had been in years past. So, my friends, that's that. ## @jmm512, I haven't come across any official announcements by the FDA or articles of information stating that this was actually banned; except by the NCAA and other sporting organizations. If this is true, did you ever find out the exact reason why they banned it? Or do you think it might've been due to their inability to maintain quality control over the past few years? ## Two pharmacists have told me. The brand is no longer being manufactured. Why? I have no idea, except New York State is Big Brother and is monitoring everybody and everything. It's...

Generic Didrex

Ever since the generic Didrex (Benzphetamine) has been out, my insurance company won't cover the actual Didrex, but only the generic. I dont know who manufactures them, but they dont work, and if you dont get to swallow with enough water or liquid, they taste like crap. Main thing is they are just what they say; "generic". Only the actual Didrex pills work in aiding weight loss and appetite control, and both requires a doctor's prescription. ## Have you tried asking your doctor to write your prescription as 'brand medically necessary', or whatever the equivalent is in your state? Then, your insurance has to cover it and the pharmacy is not allowed to give you a generic. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause si...

Online pharmacy safety Also Didrex

I took Didrex years ago like 1978 to1982 . I found it worked well on my appetite and energy level ## Hi Greg, I don't mean to get off on the wrong foot, but when the following three words are used in the same sentence "internet, pharmacy, and safety", the first thing that comes to my mind is SCAM. And while there are a handful of sites that require you to upload a copy of your prescription before checking out, most of those web-based pharmacies are unlicensed and unreliable when it comes to actually getting what you paid for. If you want to obtain this medication legally here in the US, it's going to have to come in the form of a prescription since Didrex (Benzphetamine) is a Schedule III controlled substance. The medication itself doesn't appear to be banned or anyt...
