Anfamon review

Anfamon, also known as Diethylcathinone, is a type of sympathomimetic stimulant medicament that is marketed as an appetite suppressant. It is known in the market by the name Tenuate or Tenuate Dospan and is very similar to amphetamine. Anfamon is an anorectic or anorexigenic medicament.

This medicament is a chemical analog to a similar antidepressant found to be effective as medicament to stop smoking. Anfamon stimulates the central nervous system, which may increase the heart rate and blood pressure and decrease a patient’s appetite.

Marketed as an appetite suppressant, this controlled substance is used to treat obesity, used for diet, and may even sometimes be used to counter depression. Anfamon has been listed by the Food and Drug Administration in pregnancy category B meaning it is found to not cause any harm to an unborn baby. Expecting mothers should not take this medicament without consulting their doctors.

Anfamon is a controlled substance Schedule IV, which means that it can be obtained only with a prescription. The medicament is available in 25 mg pills and 75mg control-released pills by the names Tenuate, Ten-Tab and Teparil.

Anfamon side effects include nausea, headaches, bouts of insomnia, psychosis, and the more serious side effects such as pulmonary high blood pressure, and ultimately a stroke.

Less common side effects include xerostalmia, or a metallic taste in foods, blurred vision or photosensitivity, allergies and rashes. More serious side effects include a decrease in the patient’s libido (sexual activity) and may lead to eventual erectile dysfunction. There have been reported neurological and psychological side effects including depression, anxiety, drilling headaches, restlessness, tremors, dizziness and seizures.

Caution is necessary when taking Anfamon, especially if performing activities such as driving or machine operation. Anfamon is a stimulant medicament, masking tiredness, which causes fatigue leading to problems in vision, speech and motion. This medicament can be habit forming.

Anfamon may not be taken with other anorectic medicaments whether prescribed, over the counter or herbal. Pregnant women should only use this medicament if needed.
