Dexatrim Max20


A effervescent tablet that combines the "power" of Dexatrim with the healthy benefits of water.


Dexatrim is one of the oldest brand names for caffeine-based weight-loss pills. Max20 is a new product that contains various herbal supplements (Real Green Tea, Chromium, Ginseng, and Vitamin B complex).

You drop a tablet in a glass of water and it fizzes up like Alika-seltzer.

It is available in mixed berry and lemon splash flavors.

The tablets come in convenient foil wrappers that you can take with you easily.


Dexatrim is made and marketed by Chattem, which is a very old (since 1979) medicine company. Dexatrim became popular in the 1980s. It remains the most popular diet pill on the market.


Studies have linked Dexatrim and other stimulant-based diet pills to increased risk of stroke.

I'm turning 21 years old at the end of the month... what does that have to do with using the product?

Anywayyy..... obviously eating a bag of cheetos for lunch isn't the healthiest choice, but eating just an apple is ridiculous! I hope you meant in addition to other food, because some people who don't know how to eat a healthy diet will read that and starve themselves. Which is probably worse than eating cheetos. Still, NEITHER is nutritionally sufficient.

I just bought dexatrim max20 at Walgreens on clearnace sale for 4.19 and i had
a 3.00 coupon. I hope it works. At this price it's worth a try.
posted 25-Feb-2008 5:29pm

I also bought a box at my local walgreens because it was on clearnace. It was reg priced at $10.49, and it's now 4.19 with a $2.00 off coupon on the box. I figured what the heck! For that price I'd try almost anything. Anyway, today was my first day and so far I have not had any side affects, but i haven't noticed a change in my eating yet either. But, I'll check back in a couple of days to let you know.

I have tried every diet product on the market with little or no success. On a whim I saw Dexatrim MAX2O at WalMart and decided to try it. I LOVE IT!! I take the 2 tablets in water about 15 min. before my lunch and I have the feeling off fullness that lasts for HOURS!! I'm truly amazed!! I'm almost feeling full to the point of throwing up. sometimes I take about dose before dinner but sometimes I don't need to. In 1 week I've cut back on my eating and lost 4 pounds....I'm going to stick with it!!

I just started taking the 20 today. I'm sipping on it now. I would rather sip on it all day versus taking one with breakfast and lunch. I think i'm gonna give that a try and see how it works. I really need to help me cut out my snacking during the day and also at night time. Last night i ate cereal at 11 pm (2 bowls!). that is really whats hurting me,,,is my late night eating! it's just so hard to control myself.

Hey everyone, after reading all your posts, I thought i would give this a try. I purchased the mixed berry flavor and to my suprise tastes real good. No side effects as of yet. But its only day one. I want to lose ten pounds before summer and i hope this will help me to do it. I will keep you guys posted and i hope you will do the same. Good Luck and Keep up the good work!
posted 16-Apr-2008 9:37am

how is everyone doing today? Well yesterday went well. No sugar and healthy eating. The dexatrim drink really helps with the hunger. I ate three healthy meals and i was good to go. Grapes to snack on in the afternoon and 100 calorie pack, it feels great. I feel energized today, lol.
posted 16-Apr-2008 9:16pm

i drank the dexatrim max2o and i find that it does curb the appetite i ate less through out the day i did the 2 tablets like at 10am and that seem to keep my appetite together but my downside is that i bought the lemon splash omg this is so nasty so im going to try the mixed berry that you suggested WISHING i think this product will be a success good luck to everyone in the success of losing those extra pounds.
posted 21-Apr-2008 8:34am

ronneca, u should not use this product to only "lose a few pounds" and if you are only 15. Obviously there are greater threats to people under the age of 18 or the box would not state that. Your body is still developing, still changing and it is risky to be taking diet pills or anything of that nature at that age. Change your diet, drink as much water as a person on dexatrim would be without the pills and exercise, see if you can't lose your wieght that way.

hey! so i had a run in with annorexia about two years ago and i even went to the hospital for several weeks because of a very low heart rate and blood pressure. i lost about 35 lbs in total. ive gotten better tho and gained the weight back, but my metabolism slowed down a LOT, so i was holding on to everything i ate. last week i was about 7 lbs over what i weighed before i contracted the eating disorder and i was continuing to gain weight because i just couldnt stop eating and my metabolism was rediculously sluggish. i realized my prom was coming up in about 2 weeks so i started taking dexatrim (after i finally got the courage to go up to the cashier and buy it). in about 2 weeks of taking it, i lost about 9 lbs. i was eating less and i had tons of energy to exercise. it was awesome. now i look great in my dress and im so excited.
it really works, but aparently it has somethin in it that increases risk of stroke which sux. i havnt experienced any fast heartbeats or headaches yet (and i hopefully never will). oh, but i do have to pee a lot more, which is kinda inconvenient...

i have a friend who uses 20, but she uses green tea instead of water. my question is does it make a difference if you use water or green tea.

I want to lose about 60 pounds. I sometimes have an increased heart rate. Any one have any REAL bad side effects? I'm 19. My cousin is 16 and wants to lose about 15 pounds only, and I'm not sure about letting her have some. Anyone know how dangerous it would be for her?

I took it for a while and lost about 20 pounds. However, at the time i had modified my diet, exercised regularly, and made healthier choices throughout my lifestyle. So how much of the weight loss can be attributed to the product I have no idea, but my guess is that everyone out there is just going to have to suck it up, get off the couch and do it the old fashioned way. It's a commitment and lifestyle change, not a quick fix :)
posted 14-Oct-2008 2:05pm

Been on the Dexatrim "Max 7" formula for 3 days, you'll find it on First time in my life I've had control over my appetite. I still want to eat a lot but I just don't HAVE to like before. Can hear my stomach growling and howling but I'm just not hungry (after a soda). I don't notice any side affects, no headaches or racing heartbeat or that stuffed cottonhead feeling I used to get with the old ephedra pills.
posted 15-Oct-2008 8:31pm

a little advice, I mix mine with A LOT of water and a little juice. Don't forget, lots of water, other wise you'll get that racing heart problem. ALSO, DO NOT exercise directly after taking it, wait an hour or so. It's dangerous for your heart to do it directly after.
Also, when they say with a healthy diet and exercise they mean it. You can't take magic pills and think the fat will go away. These pills help give you a little more pep for exercise.
I'd also limit it to two tablets, or one, a day, if you're having head ache and heart issues. Also, EAT a balanced low cal diet, even if you aren't hungry. That's the problem with the apatite suppressant. It's easier to go without eating when you probably should be, then you don't lose weight.

Just started 20 today and I am hoping the combination of this drink, willpower and the sheer want to NOT look like a stuffed sausage in my clothes, will help me to get rid of the 15lbs I need to loose. I will update.

I have been using this since February 2008. I am a white male, 39 y/o and I weighed 208lbs. when I started. I am 5'10", so that weight puts me over my average weight for a guy my size. I take two tablets in the morning (7 am.)in my bottled water, and then two more in my bottled water at lunch tim (noon). That is it, only twice a day and then I eat a healthy dinner before 6 pm at night. I really have not been increasing my physical activity and I am down to 179lbs and holding just fine. For some reason I can not break 179lbs--my target was 175lbs, but I am no going to complain. I like the Dexatrim and I do not appear to suffer from any side effects. I monitor my blood pressure weekly and it has not increased.

(it was so gross i couldnt finish the whole thing, mixed berry flavor-ew.) i need to lose 35 pounds. im a bit overweight....(sarcasm much? i exagerate a lot). anyways, a few hours after my first bottle, i suddenly got tired and took a small nap (14 minutes i think) i didnt really sleep but i felt super tired. now its night and i just finished a 10 minute blast workout. im not even tired! i guess it does give me more neergy...still watching for more side effects. ill only take it for 2 weeks (see if i keep the metabolism rate...if not...there's always natural exercise right? *sweatmark* whatever may come,will come.
