What’s The Difference Between Phen Caps And Phentermine?

phen caps and phentermine

Phen Caps is an effective weight loss supplement, but many of you ask us: what the difference is between Phen Caps and phentermine? Here we explain everything you need to know!

What Are Phen Caps?

Phen Caps is a weight loss supplement sold on Phen.com, designed to help you lose weight by suppressing appetite and boosting energy levels, working in the same way that phentermine does. However, unlike phentermine, Phen Caps are available without a prescription, meaning that if you are unable to get a prescription for phentermine, then you can still get the weight loss boost you need.

What’s The Difference Between Phen Caps And Phentermine?

Although phentermine and Phen Caps work in similar ways to give you the same effects, the main differences between them relate to the active ingredients they contain. The active ingredient of phentermine is phentermine HCL, which is structurally similar to amphetamine. When referring to the milligrams of phentermine, which can range from 15mg to 37.5mg, this number refers to the amount of phentermine HCL in each phentermine capsule or tablet. Phentermine HCL is a controlled substance, and so anything which contains this ingredient is therefore prescription-only and not available to buy without being prescribed this specific medication by a doctor, meaning that Phen Caps cannot and do not contain phentermine HCL. By comparison, Phen Caps contain nine active ingredients which work together to help control your appetite, boost energy levels and metabolism.

How Do Phen Caps Work?

Like phentermine, which is primarily an appetite suppressant, Phen Caps also help to curb hunger and reduce cravings, suppressing appetite through a combination of Phenylethylamine (PEA) and Caralluma. By stimulating the release of dopamine, PEA reduces appetite while also improving your mood, indicating that Phen Caps will not only help suppress your appetite, they will also reduce the chance of giving in to cravings and binges related to emotional hunger. Caralluma is a type of cactus with natural appetite-suppressing benefits, as confirmed by research which showed that caralluma can significantly reduce cravings and suppress hunger throughout the day, making Phen Caps perfect for those who struggle with these issues.

Phentermine is also a stimulant, therefore it boosts energy levels and motivates you to be more active. Phen Caps are designed to have similar energy boosting properties, using a combination of caffeine and theobromine, two stimulants which have been shown to increase energy levels, making exercise easier and inspiring you to be motivated to keep fit as part of your new healthy lifestyle. Additionally, Phen Caps contain the ingredients Synephrine, Raspberry Ketone, and L-Carnitine which all stimulate the body to break down fat and burn calories by boosting your metabolism.

Avoid The Side Effects

Phentermine is an effective weight loss medication, but it can produce several negative side effects, including a dry mouth, dizziness, constipation, and insomnia, whereas Phen Caps have no known side effects. It is also recommended that phentermine not be taken for more than 12 weeks at a time due to the effects it can have on the heart, such as increased blood pressure and a rapid heart rate. By comparison, Phen Caps contain theobromine, which is used to treat high blood pressure, and Crateagus spp. Extract, which is widely recognized for its benefits for cardiovascular health, making Phen Caps a great weight loss alternative for those who prefer to avoid the side effects or health risks of phentermine.

Phen Caps And Phentermine: A Winning Combination

Many people take Phen Caps after their phentermine prescription comes to an end. People taking phentermine can sometimes find that it reduces in effectiveness towards the end of their prescription, or that their hunger returns later in the day, so they decide to stop taking the medication. Transitioning to Phen Caps from phentermine is a great way to continue to manage your hunger levels so that you don’t eat too much, and so that you are able to make good food choices during the afternoon and in the evening, which is when a lot of people struggle with cravings due to low energy and habits such as mindless snacking in front of the TV.

We recommend that you take one Phen Cap pill in the morning before breakfast and another before lunch. Due to the stimulant effects of both Phen Caps and phentermine, it is not advisable to take either any later in the day.

      yeh I am taking the phen caps on here, they are good – not as strong as real phen from the doctor but easier to get for me since I moved and a good option. I didn’t like the drink so I sent that back for a refund no problem. It gives me good energy and keeps my mind off food more so I can avoid crave foods like cookies more.

      Hi Nena!

      There’s no contraindications between phentermine and weight loss supplements such as Phen Caps; just be sure to check with your prescribing doctor before adding or subtracting any medicines or supplements while on your phentermine treatment. It’s also perfectly normal to lose inches, but not ‘weight’, especially if you’re also doing exercises…it means you are turning fat into lean muscle, a good transition into a healthy lifestyle. The most important thing to remember while you’re in your phentermine treatment is to consider it as ‘training wheels’ for a better, healthy lifestyle (better nutrition and exercise habits). Lifestyle changes are the only things that will guarantee long-term weight loss and avoid the dreaded ‘weight rebound’.

      Best of luck with your goals!

      Regards,

      Hi Carmen, thanks for your comment! Definitely check with your doctor about this. Phen Caps contain caffeine and other natural stimulants, so they may or may not be a suitable option for you given your heart condition. Your personal doctor/cardiologist would be the best person to assess whether this supplement is safe for you. For your (and their) reference, here is a link to the full ingredient list of Phen Caps: https://www.phen.com/pages/phen-caps

    lost 40 w/phentermine

    Phentermine is the prescription diet med that’s been in pharmacies for years. Phen caps is just an OTC med — they’re all pretty much alike, no matter what the name. One company makes them with several different brand names on them. OTC meds are usually plant materials, caffeine and like ingredients, not chemicals like prescription drugs.

    Also, you can tell by advertising. OTC combinations have lots of full-page ads with too-good-to-be-true claims and excited language about new and great and all that. The meds diet doctors recommend do not advertise on the net like that. That’s how you know the difference, too.
