Tenuate Overview

Amfepramone, also known as diethylpropion, is a stimulant drug of the phenethylamine, amphetamine, and cathinone classes that is used as an appetite suppressant.[4][5] It is used in the short-term management of obesity, along with dietary and lifestyle changes.[4] Amfepramone is most closely chemically related to the antidepressant and smoking cessation aid bupropion (previously called amfebutamone), which has also been developed as a weight-los...

tenuate or diethylpropion

This drug is an appetite suppressant ## Watson 783 tablets are the appetite suppressant Diethylpropion ## I am using diethylopropion 25 mg once a day..and it is working great... what are the side effects? and how long should I take it? Does it build up in system or does hunger come back after stopping the pill? ## These are not all the same medication and they do not all aid in appetite suppression. Tenuate contains Amfempramone, while diethylproprion is a different medication, none of these are actually intended to be used as weight loss aids, according to NIH reports, though that could change at any time. The typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. This information may also vary depending on your location, some countries may...

tennate 12 s suspension

what is it for ## Do you mean the drug Tenuate which is a diet pill / appetite suppressant? Let me know... ## Actually, there was a medication called Tannate 12 S, which was a suspension used to treat coughing and allergies, it contains Carbetapentane and Chlorpheniramine. I am not certain if this is still available. You can learn more Chlorpheniramine details here and you can learn more Carbetapentane details here. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Are there any comments or questions?


Looking for current info re Nobesine. No info available on trusted websites such as the NIH website, rxlist.com, or drugs.com. Followed generic name in google search to find brand name Tenuate. Is Nobesine still available in US or is it off market? ## It looks like the generic form of Nobesine / Tenuate is in fact available (the active ingredient is Diethylpropion Hcl) - I just found the 75mg controlled release form of this product for sale on drugstore.com. You will need a prescription for it, and I think they will only dispense a max of 30 days worth. Hope this helps!


Hi, I complained to my doctor that although I used to loose weight easily this is no longer the case. She wrote me a script for one months supply of Tenuate, saying that this would assist me. As I am a believer in proper diet (healthy food) and exercise I am frightened to use this script. How safe is it if taken for a month and are there any foods, drink or tablets that cannot be taken during this period? Especially as I am a migraine sufferer yet even then do without medication unless it is impossible to carry on without. Thanks. ## Today is 1 week since I sarted & I have lost about 11lbs. already. I feel great, only side effect I have is dry mouth, is recommended to drink alot of water. I also excercise about everyday, it helps alot! This medication was given to me under the super...

Watson 782

white oblong tablet ## what is Watson 782 used for. i hear it is a form of tenuate, but checked other sights and it stated it is for reducing blood pressure? ## I've been using this pill for 3 weeks now. Believe it or not it really does work I've lost 15 pounds since I started it. It's a weight lost pill; one of the side effects is high blood pressure. DIETHYLPROPION HCL CR 75 MG is what I have on the bottle. From what I understand there is two different pills that you can take. One is three a day and this one is one a day. ## Steve's identification is correct, the name brand for this would be Tenuate. This is a stimulan drug, approved as an appetite suppressant. Some of the most common side effects include: insomnia, nausea, blurred vision and metallic taste.
