Duromine is the most popular drug in Australia, but not the only anorexigenic drug at the international pharmaceutical market. For decades, obese people have been prescribed not only drugs containing Phentermine (including Duromine), but also weight loss drugs containing other anorexigenic agents.
One of the anorexigenic drugs that can be used as an alternative to Duromine is Clobenzorex. Just as Duromine, Clobenzorex suppresses appetite, and it is used as the obesity treatment in children older than 12 years and adults. Clobenzorex was available at European pharmaceutical market up to the mid-2000s.
- In France and Portugal, Clobenzorex capsules were sold under the trade name Dinintel. In Spain, Clobenzorex capsules were sold under the trade name Finedal.
- At Mexican pharmacies, Clobenzorex capsules are sold under the trade names: Asenlix, Itravil AP, Obeclox, Redicres.
In the USA, Clobenzorex capsules are not sold. As an alternative to Duromine (and any other drugs containing Phentermine), the Americans can be prescribed drugs containing an anorexigenic agent Diethylpropion. In EU, this anorexigenic agent is better known under the alternative name Amfepramone.
In contrast to Duromine pills and Clobenzorex pills that can be prescribed as the obesity treatment in adolescents over 12 years old, Diethylpropion (Amfepramone) pills can be prescribed only to patients over 16 years old.
In the USA, drugs containing Diethylpropion (Amfepramone) are sold under the trade names Tenuate, Tenuate Dospan and generic name Diethylpropion Hydrochloride. For a few decades, Diethylpropion was sold at the US pharmacies under the trade names Tepanil and Tepanil Ten-Tab.
In EU, drugs containing Diethylpropion are sold (were sold) under the trade names: Dobesin, Prefamone, Linea, Tenuate, Tenuate Dospan, Tenuate Retard, Anorex, Dietil – Retard, Regenon, Regenon Retard, Atractil, Moderatan, Menutil, Delgamer, Linea Valeas, Apisate, Diethylpropion Poudre. At the UK pharmacies, the drug containing Diethylpropion was sold under the alternative name Amfepramone.
If you want to buy Duromine but cannot find this weight loss drug in your city, ask your doctor what appetite suppressants you can use as an alternative to Duromine. Instead of Duromine (Phentermine) pills, the doctor can prescribe you another prescription anti-obesity drug, or recommends using natural weight loss pills to fight obesity.
