Phendimetrazine is available in “instant-release” or “slow-release” versions.
Most commonly tablets contain 35mg of the active ingredient Phendimetrazine. Slow release versions (Bontril) contain 105 mg of Phendimetrazine which is the equivalent of 3x 35mg and has been shown to take effect as quickly as a standard “non slow release” Phendimetrazine but has a prolonged therapeutic effect.
NEVER chew, crush, or split Bontril Slow Release tabs.
