Bontril is a popularly prescribed form of brand name weight loss drug that contains phendimetrazine as the primary active ingredient in its formula. This medication is in a group known as sympathomimetic amines, which function in many ways that are similar to amphetamines. This type of drug is also referred to as an anoretic or anorexigenic medication.
The way that Bontril works is that it provides the central nervous system with stimulation. This is the area of the body that is made up of the nerves which connect with those in the brain. By stimulating them, it can trick the brain into thinking that the appetite has been decreased through an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. This way, you’ll feel more full even when you haven’t eaten as much.
