Bontril is a type of prescription diet drug that has been created to help obese individuals to lose weight more quickly and easily than they are capable of doing on their own. This is a medication that is available in capsule form and that is used daily to help to increase energy levels and decrease the appetite. It is not a weight loss program in itself, but is meant to be combined with proper healthy food consumption and regular daily exercise in order to decrease the levels of stored fat in the body.
Bontril works by affecting the central nervous system in the brain in a way that tricks your body into thinking that it is more “full” than it actually is. That way, you will not only be satisfied more quickly by smaller meals, but you will also maintain that level of satisfaction for longer periods of time, and you will have a reduction in the cravings that you experience, so that you are less likely to snack, especially on fatty, salty, or sugary foods that could derail all of your careful weight loss efforts.
As a prescription drug, Bontril is only legally available with a doctor’s approval. It is not a pill that is meant for everyone, as it was designed specifically for individuals who are obese, with a high body mass index, and who do not have certain other health conditions or take certain other medications. As effective as it may be for many people, it is a serious and powerful diet drug. It is associated with certain side effects. These are typically mild and will go away within the first few days, but if it is taken by someone who is not adequately overweight, these side effects could be very dangerous to the individual’s health.
When used by the right individual, and when combined with both healthy diet and exercise every day, Bontril can make it much easier for a dieter to shed a significant amount of weight within a short period of time. It is designed only for short term use, in order to avoid withdrawal symptoms when it comes time to stop using it. However, within that time, it can make a notable difference to the user’s weight, and can teach that individual the right lifestyle habits that are required to continue losing weight on their own without the drug. This can then be carried over to the proper behaviors for maintaining the goal weight when it has been achieved.
