Amfepramone is a drug used for a peroral anti-obesity therapy. Amfepramone was developed in the USA and approved by the FDA in 1959. The first supplier of Amfepramone to the international market was Watson Pharmaceuticals.
Today, Amfepramone is produced by dozens of pharmaceutical companies. Some companies sell Amfepramone under the original trade names, the others under nonproprietary name Amfepramone or an alternative name Diethylpropion.

Amfepramone tablets are prescribed to obese patients with BMI not lower than 30. In BMI 27 to 29.9 (overweight, pre-obese), patients should use some alternative weight loss products (Phentermine, Phendimetrazine).
Mechanism of action
Amfepramone is included in the group of sympathomimetic amines. Drugs of this group are the central nervous system stimulants (CNS), providing an anorexigenic effect. Just as other psychostimulants, Amfepramone not only suppresses the appetite, but causes metabolic and cardiovascular effects.
Contraindications for use
- Amfepramone tablets stimulate the central nervous system, hence doctors must not prescribe them to obese patients with mental disorders (including drug dependence).
- Sometimes Amfepramone tablets provide adverse cardiovascular effects, so they must never be prescribed to patients with uncontrolled hypertension, cardiac pathologies and vascular diseases.
This is not a full list of Amfepramone contraindications. To get more information on Amfepramone, please consult your physician or ask your questions by email.
The efficiency of Amfepramone tablets has been proven by the trials results and years of experience of using these pills. Amfepramone tablets help to become slimmer within a few months. However, apart from the fact that Amfepramone 25mg and 75mg tablets suppress the appetite, they can cause pulmonary hypertension, valvular heart disease, psychosis and seizures.
Amfepramone tablets are prescribed only if their benefit surpasses the potential risk. For an objective assessment of risk-benefit ratio, a comprehensive medical examination should be administered to obese patients.
Only after the doctor makes sure that Amfepramone is harmless for a patient’s health, he can prescribe these weight loss tablets. One course of anti-obesity therapy may require more than two medical examinations (including echocardiogram, X-ray of chest, blood and urine tests).
