I have used phentermine and it does work for a short while. But it does have some harsh side effects in the beginning like very bad headaches, clenching your jaw, stiff neck, and a feeling like you just had 10 pots of esspresso coffee. You have no appetite in the beginning which is o.k. but then you feel sick because you need to eat but your not hungry. Eventually the side effects go away after about 2 weeks, but I have learned that the medication stops being as effective after about 2 or 3 months. Hope this helps!

"Phentramin" has no chemical connection to phentramine. The fact that they would use a sound-alike name rubs me the wrong way.
Their website claims these active ingredients: Chromium (amino acid chelate); Caffeine; Proprietary Blend Consisting of: Hoodia Gordoni Cactus Powder, Magnolia Bark, Glucomannan, Green Tea, Theobromine, Guarana extract, Cha de Burge, Maca Extract, L-Theanine, Banaba extract and Gugglesterone.
I don't now all of these, but some are mild stimulants. That's fairly typical of the weight loss preparations, I think.
I'm just not enthusiastic about such things, I guess.

addendum from 7:38 poster...
I typed too fast. The prescription drug is Phentermine. There have been at least a couple of other sound-alikes (Phendrazene, Fedramine, ...) in the marketplace from different sources. The Phentramin posted about is one of those. Web pages say this comes from Lazarus Labs which seems to be the same as Benito Enterprises. Benito/Lazarus have a number of other sound-alike products (Tramaden, Glycamil, Lipostatin, Diastol, Prialis). Other Web pages say this company belongs to Arley Vest, who comes to this from the world of bodybuilding.
The sound-alikes are generally some sort of herbal combination. I have no idea about the quality control of any of them, or effectiveness. But don't assume that things are similar because they sound similar.
