    We used to buy Spanish slimming pills and bring them back home in the 1970's.
    I think there must be a big difference between Phentamine and Amphetamine because they had no effect on any of us.

    No, they're both illegal pretty much everywhere.

    Both illegal, and both come at a high price, one way or another.

    Dangerous.

    With regard to phentamine, I don't think there is such a word,
    I may be wrong on this of course, I think they use parts of the
    amphetamine word to draw attention to the product, but doubt it
    will be beneficial to assisting in weight loss as amphetamine or
    methamphetamine would. There is a drug known as phentermine which
    is a form of amphetamine.

    They all take the appetite away, make you talk like an idiot,
    sweat, palpitate, and can lead to death.

    Amphetamines were used by Hitlers Doctors
    in wars to help keep soldiers alert, and boost
    the courage, they felt invincible, same with the
    Japanese.

    Kamikaze on amphetamine and booze was no problem.


    They were once the main ingredient in diet pills,
    because they stop people feeling hungry.

    Some amphetamines are used in medicine, for example,
    Ritalin is used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.


    They were heavily marketed as an energy pill during the
    late 1950's and 1960's when I think they were banned as
    a dangerous pill.

    Referred to then as Purple Hearts.

    Shaped like a heart and purple in colour.

    There was talk that amphetamines were given to American GI's
    during WW11 when they went into battle hand to hand against
    The Japs in The Pacific.

    No idea if this is true or not.

    People take it because it gives them the energy to
    do things for hours without getting tired, things like
    dancing, talking, and going out. Quite a favourite on the
    rave dancing scene of the 90's especially.

    It causes numerous psychotic problems, puts a strain on
    the heart and as mentioned can lead to death.

    Similar to most drugs, teeth fall out, health deteriorates
    numerous cases of folk becoming dangerously paranoid.

    Leave it alone.
    All the women take their blouses off
    And the men all dance on the polka dots
    It's closing time !

    Most definitely. Speed really is a devastating drug, adverse mental and physical effects manifest very quickly with regular amphetamine use.

    It'll fuck you up quicker than opiates, cocaine, and alcohol.

    Having said that, I'd say that those pills likely don't contain amphetamine, they probably contain some form of legal high with similar effects. There's all sorts of crap nowadays which is supposed to mimic the effects of illegal drugs, from cannabis to ecstacy to speed.

    TBH, If I want the buzz a certain illegal drug provides I'd rather take the acual illegal substance - at least there is decades of research behind them and you know the likely effects and risks involved. These new substances are complete unknown quantities, and potentially more dangerous than the real thing they're copying.

    We used get medicinal-grade amphetamine from a crooked dentist when we were young. Was great when you were up, but the come-downs were horrendous. Most of us stopped doing it pretty quickly, but a few old mates started injecting it, then went down the slippery slope pretty quickly afterwards.

    What a bunch of lightweights

    True story though from WWII, when Ze Germans paratrooped into Crete they were bang on the amphetamines, quickly realised as the Brits encountered their ability to fight non stop. Ze Germans were being re-supplied by air dropped canisters which contained further supplies of amphetamines and battles broke out over ownership as the Brits tried to commandeer them, so that they could get high too.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Phentamine

    It is a prescription weight loss drug. Normally spelled "Phentermine".

    Would not mess with it without strict medical supervision.

    Similar to amphetamines, but different in detail......

    Tried it once about 35 years ago. Loved it so much, then realised better to never touch it again.
    Would have been the end for me.
