Asenlix Review - Does This Diet Drug Actually Work?

By Summer Banks on Oct 20, 2016
Asenlix Review

97% of dieters just want a product that’s effective. Yeah, we don’t understand that remaining 3%, either. We looked closely at the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies, and customer service. Then, we read through hundreds of reviews to learn more about what people really thought. We summarized our findings to give you the bottom line.

EDITOR'S TIP:

What is Asenlix?

Firstly, Aslenix is a brand name of the drug clobenzorex, which is the only ingredient in the pill. It was used as an appetite suppressant, though it has stimulant effects similar to amphetamines.

Three companies sell this drug and those are Dinintel, Finedal and Rexigen. The normal dose is a single capsule, or 30 mg. The drug first became popular in the 1970s. We like that the it has a strong history and is made by more than one company, but read on…

Safety Issues – “Strong Stuff”

Our first concern is the fact Asenlix can cause some adverse reactions. “Prescription stimulants can have harmful side effects. They may help give you energy and boost your metabolism, but is it really worth it?” said our Research Editor.

”Not really getting anywhere,” said one user.

”Can’t sleep when I use this,” claimed another.

Others considered it safe because they got results and experienced no side effects.

“It was the best diet pill. I was happy, no side effects, effective weight loss,” explained a dieter.

“Used many years ago..worked great,” offered another review.

Reported Side Effects – “Worth It?”

Our next concern is potential Asenlix side effects. You can’t order this in the United States any longer. That could be because of the adverse reactions associated with the drug.

”Sends my blood pressure soaring,” said a user.

Still, some swear by it and claim no side effects.

“Love this stuff. It’s helped me lose 20 pounds so far,” explained a reviewer.

“I was shocked to see this for sale online in the US since it’s banned here,” offered another.

We’ve learned over the years that all it takes is a small thing, like even mild side effects, to prevent customers from seeing long term results. If Asenlix causes adverse reactions, the dieter may soon stop taking it and it can’t work that way.

The Science – “Scary Stuff?”

Studies show that while this is effective at increasing energy levels and suppressing the appetite, it also puts users at an increased risk of pulmonary issues and hypertension. This is a serious consideration, especially for dieters with heart problems.

At DietSpotlight, we want to see science that shows the product is not only effective, but also safe before we can recommend it.

The Bottom Line – Does Asenlix Work?

Is it time to clear the shelves of Asenlix? There’s a reason why the US FDA pushed it off the market. It could be because of side effects, or maybe the drug no longer met safety guidelines, but whatever the cause, it’s no available here and that gives us pause.

If you want to shed those extra pounds, why not try a supplement made with clinically tested safe and effective ingredients? To give yourself a boost, add it to your routine with regular exercise and a balanced diet.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. We like this one because we weren’t able to locate any mentions of harmful side effects or negative comments, which tells us users are getting good results. When you consider the formula is made using only clinically tested ingredients shown to support a healthy metabolim, it’s easy to see why.

And right now, there is a Special Trial Offer, available directly from the makers of Leptigen, which is something we always like to see.

How Does Asenlix Compare?

Previous Asenlix Review (Updated November 13, 2012):

What You Should Know

Asenlix is one brand name for a drug classified as Clobenzorex. It is also sold by Dinintel, Finedal and Rexigen. This weight loss supplement was popularized a few years ago in the 1970s by some athletes looking for an appetite suppressant. It technically falls under the phenethylamine and amphetamine class of drug only with significantly less potency than other aphetamines and is usually listed as an anorectic. Because of the coloring of the early capsules, a more common name for these pills is "greenies." Today, this product is no longer available inside the United States. It can be purchased online from Mexican pharmacies but is difficult to get through US Customs.

List of Ingredients

The only ingredient in Asenlix is Clobenzorex, a stimulant drug that tends to increase alertness and energy.

Product Features

Asenlix, or Clobenzorex, is usually sold as a pill or a tablet and taken no more than twice a day. A prescription is required though today you would not be able to purchase it in the United States. Often it can be purchased from online pharmaceutical companies. A normal dosage would be one capsule or 30mg. It is reported that people who take this drug claim to feel less tired and more alert. It also is supposed to prevent energy loss while still effectively suppressing one's appetite.

Advantages

  • The chief advantage of Asenlix is said to be its ability to greatly reduce a person's appetite. It can be a very effective anorectic.
  • Supposedly, it does this without reducing energy or alertness. Some athletes say they take it because of the boost it gives to their reactions and performance.
  • It can also be found for a fairly low price.

Disadvantages

  • There are several disadvantages to this product. First, it is no longer available for sale in the United States making it difficult to obtain.
  • Second, it was banned because of some rather serious side effects which include varying degrees of anxiety, insomnia, nausea, and accelerated heartbeat.
  • Also, it should be pointed out that while effectively reducing a person's appetite Asenlix does not help them lose the weight that they have already acquired.
  • This product also fails to emphasize the importance of a healthy diet and regular exercise.
  • Finally, while users generally report complete loss of appetite, others fail to notice any difference.
  • Results vary.

Conclusion

While this product is very effective at reducing a person's caloric intake while still maintaining high energy levels, the difficulty in obtaining this drug in the United States and the reasons for that difficulty should be given serious consideration. This drug is not recommended for anyone suffering with heart trouble, depression, or from drug or alcohol abuse. A person would want to consult his physician before starting with any new drug.

    Hi Anjela. It seems as though, because this product was operational in the 70’s, it is no longer available or at least not online.

    I wish Asenlix was still available in the US. I tried it once and it worked really well. I didn’t have any bad side effects that I’ve read about. It wasn’t addicting either. Things that usually work, end up being outlawed 🙁
