Weight Loss With Bontril: Smooth Sailing On The Weight Loss Ocean


As many of us know, it's the first few days of starting a healthy new habit that can be the most discouraging. The first few days of exercise are always the achiest. A new reduced-calorie diet comes with hunger pangs until your body adjusts to the healthier eats.

Sometimes taking an appetite suppressant can help you ride out the choppy waters and get you to the days of smooth and healthy sailing! If you're getting ready to start a new weight-loss program, Bontril SR (the slow release version of Bontril) can help you manage those first few weeks of changes.

Is Bontril a Tranquillizer?

Not to worry - Bontril SR doesn't make you "zone out" through your first few weeks of healthful eating. You're not going to be the Rip Van Winkle of weight loss success! Actually, Bontril SR is an appetite suppressant which works a lot like the old-fashioned amphetamines that were used in the 50s to help women keep thin. Unlike amphetamines, Bontril won't leave you "hopped up" - instead it'll help you feel less hungry as your body adjusts to your new diet and exercise programs.

How do I get started on a Bontril-based weight-loss plan?

Bontril SR requires a doctor's prescription, so visit your favorite doctor to see if Bontril is right for your needs. Usually, drugs like Bontril are a good bet for people who have a body-mass index (BMI, which is a measure of your height-to-weight ratio) of over 30. If you've tried some of the newer weight-loss pills (like Xenical) but they didn't work for you, Bontril may be a good alternative.

Your doctor may steer you toward a different drug if you are taking or have recently taken an MAO inhibitor (a type of antidepressant). She may also suggest an alternative if you have significant heart disease or circulation problems (like high blood pressure) or if you have insulin-dependent diabetes.

The First Few Weeks

Bontril works by suppressing your appetite, so your body adjusts to your new diet without a tidal wave of hunger pangs! There are some other things that can help with your adjustment, so here's a checklist to help you get started:

? Don't forget - diet and exercise is what makes weight-loss happen - Bontril SR will just make it all easier!

? Some people have side effects (dry mouth, stomach troubles) when they first start on Bontril SR, but they pass. If they don't stop, or if you have other serious symptoms, it's time to call your doctor!

? You might feel like celebrating when your weight loss starts, but don't call for a margarita! Alcohol can increase the occasional dizziness people feel while they're on Bontril SR.

? Because Bontril SR is a slow-release drug (SR), don't chew the capsule! You'll get a big whopping dose of the drug all at once if you do and that can really increase side effects!

Once you've gotten adjusted to your new lifestyle, usually in a couple of weeks, you should talk to your doctor about stopping Bontril SR. Be aware that some people find Bontril SR habit-forming and stopping the drug all at once can lead to withdrawal symptoms. So work with your doctor to reduce your dose on a regular schedule until you're not taking it anymore.

When you stop taking Bontril SR, you'll already be adjusted to a healthier, lower-cal diet. All you'll need to do is to keep up the good work!
