Fastin XR, 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 ratings

Fastin XR

Ever tried or heard of original Fastin? Well no matter, because Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals have apparently improved it. It’s now even better (just ask ‘em) because it contains:

* 50 mg more caffeine
* DMAA (Geranium extract) which effects neurotransmitters responsible for metabolism and energy–and–
* 5-HT for increased serotonin release so you feel happy and full

Here’s the thing–it doesn’t seem to be available on the official website yet.

But, you can order it from third-party retailers.

Can you say “back order”? I’m only speculating, but it makes sense that if the Hi-tech Pharmaceuticals show it’s “coming soon” that other companies are taking your money and making you wait.

So the question is–is Fastin XR worth the hassle?

Here are the claims:
* The King of Stimulant Weight Control Formulations Just Got Better!
* Immediate and All-Day Extended Release (XR) Technology Utilizes DMAA for Even More Stimulant Action!
* The Strongest and Most Technologically Advanced Diet Aid Ever Developed

The “King” eh? Well, I’m the Queen of sniffing out bull-puckie. Let’s look at the ingredients.

Fastin XR Ingredients

Fastin XR contains 50 mg more Caffeine Ahhydrous. Don’t get too excited, ‘anhydrous’ is a fancy word for ‘dehydrated’ and you’re still only getting a total of 150 mg. I drink that much in a couple of Diet Pepsi’s–with much the same effect.

Fastin XR also contains the following in a 375 mg “extended release” proprietary blend:
* Acacia Ridudula Extract-a plant that purportedly reduces stored fat, increases lean muscle and improves joint mobility. It’s more commonly used to treat infections and inflammation. It’s not without side effects either including negative reactions to mood and symptoms associated with allergies.
* Synephrine HCl-a really good ingredient that mimics Ephedrine in that it raises metabolic rate, increases fat burning and improves mood–all without negatively effecting the cardiovascular and nervous systems.
* Theobromine-a natural form of caffeine that comes from cocoa. It raises metabolic rate and improves mood, and can act as an appetite suppressant.
* Green Tea-another excellent ingredient. Green Tea is high in antioxidants, EGCG’s and natural caffeine and can raise metabolic rate and oxidise fat–while killing free radicals that cause disease and aging.
* DMAA-aka 1,3-dimethylamylamine. DMAA comes from the Geranium plant and mimics adrenaline. As such it raises metabolic rate. But as of right now there is no scientific evidence that backs it, despite its popularity in body building supplements.
* Naringen-a bitter compound from grapefruit thought to suppress appetite and cause fat burning.
* 5-methoxytryptamine HCl-aka “5-HT”. 5-HT is a mood lifter that’s also marketed as an energy stimulator.
* Yohimbine HCl-a fat burner that’s supposed to target stubborn, ‘hard to reach’ areas like the abs and thighs.

Question Number One–what makes this blend “extended release”? I certainly can’t figure it out.

Question Number Two–if it takes at least 100-400 mgs of each ingredient to render them effective, how are you getting enough in a proprietary blend?

Question Number Three–how do you know how much of each individual ingredient you’re getting when they’re thrown into a prop blend–or as I like to term it–an ‘herbal soup’?

I can’t see how this formula is effective at all, let alone improved.

Fastin XR Side Effects

This formula is stimulant heavy. Expect side effects including the jitters, restlessness, nervousness, dizziness and irritability. You’ll be especially irritable when you realize you’ve spent far too much of a formula that doesn’t do much more than get you revved up for a bit, and turns your pee yellow.

Does Fastin XR Work Well Enough to Buy?

Buyers beware.

It’s expensive. I’ve seen it for a minimum of around $60 to $140! Why on earth you’d spend $60 is beyond me. But $140 is pure madness.

If you really must try Fastin XR, buy it as cheaply as possible. Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals doesn’t offer a money-back guarantee. And most third-party retailers don’t offer one on opened product.

I believe I’ve just sniffed out some bull-puckie.

Just bought fastinxr from CVS on sale 45ct for 19.99..promo… regular fastin worked great for me lost 52 lbs from 7-10-11 to 12-15-11..Slacked during the holidays!!! Anxious to get started on the new xr, looking forward to same or better results. Was 254 now down to 202 in less than 6 months and only watched my diet with minimal exercise, worked 10hrs day. Have exercise plan in place now so results should be faster and better ….Get started you’ll see the results in a week…

I have taken several diet aids over the years and I must say this is the best on the market. Great Job, and keep up the hard work. Make sure you cycle off after a month (which means take for 1mon and then go off for two weeks)

Yes, I agree, it really does seem to work. I don’t know what makes it time release, but it really is. I get nausea at the thought of food. I don’t want to eat and I’m not hungry.

Emmalee Says:

This info is wrong.. like the people above said.. it’s $19.99 at CVS, and $27.00 at Wal-mart! It’s my first day trying it adn so far the only side effects I’ve had is tingling head. It went away, though, after a couple of hours. I’m hoping that i can lose about 40-50 pounds. So far today, I’m a little hungry but not starving; considering i haven’t eaten all day!

GW Says:

I completely agree… Fastin is available at Walgreens and CVS along with a few other places I am sure. It has ranged anywhere from $19.99 to $35.99 depending on the original or XR formula. All I can say is that after one month, I have noticed a difference. It provides that little extra nudge along with healthy changes in diet and exercise and the weight will come off.

I got it at GNC. FIrst time I took it I was ill and threw up. Do not mix it with anything that has caffine in it. Start on just one a day and take w/ food. It deff supresses your appitite. Best if taken at start of day.

Danielle Swan Says:

I started today. I choose to take 2 which I have found to be a bad idea as I am super jittery. I took phentermine back about 7 years ago with great weight-loss sucess but after having a baby at 36, 3 years ago I have managed to pack back on the weight as I had returned to old bad over-eating habits. I am now ready to loose the weight! I have been jittery (due to taking 2 instead of 1 which the bottle gives you the choice) but have not been hungry. I have been thirsty so it has encouraged me to drink more water as most diets recommend. And the company DOES offer a money back guarentee so the writer of this article really needs to do better research as some of the other reviewers have done. So far the product offers exactly what it states :)

Caitlyn H Says:

I got a 4 pack of the pills free with a purchase of 2 bottles of CLA from GNC. I’ve only taken one and I took it about an hour before my workout and I powered through a full body workout including cardio like it was nothing with plenty of energy to run back to my dorm across my university’s campus , get ready for class, and still have energy throughout the rest of the day. I felt very jittery, but it was a good jittery. I don’t plan to take it long term but I’ll have to see how the last three make me feel.

Caitlyn H., How did the last 3 pills work for you? I, too, received a free 4pack from GNC after purchasing 2 bottles of CLA. Have you seen any results and did you continue use or stop after the 4 pills. As for the CLA, what exactly has/does it do for you? Have you seen results and how long did it take?

I purchased fastin at walgreens over the weekend for only $20.00. I already lost 3 lbs in 5 days. I will continue to use it for the next 30 days. By the way I only take one cap in the morning and that keeps my energy level throughout the day. I must admit that by 5:30 I am ready for bed no energy at all.

Mrs. Brooklyn Says:

I must say I have bben taking Fastin for about 5 months now. I haven’t got on the scale yet but judging from my clothes I started out wearing a size 14 now I’m down to a size 10. Yes it does give me the jitters and make my feel dehydrated at times. But other than that I love it. I purchased the Fastin -xr. Not really for sure when I will start taking that one.I only take one pill a day and so far so good for my results.

I take one at lunch and it does give me the jitters and a tingling feeling but it keeps me going sometimes til midnight…. still, i feel my pants fitting lose around the butt area and i have been only taking it one week so i believe it works. will weigh in 3 weeks to see the true results. and i must say that it does suppress appetite big time. atleast i feel i dont crave like i did before which is a good thing since i just ate out of plain boredom…i think. so far its better than xantrex

Jenn Says:

I have been taking the fastin for a couple of months and I lost almost 30 lbs in that month alone! I cannot believe how fast this works. I really wanted a good appetite suppressant because I eat out when I am bord this pill is a great appetite suppressant I have to remind myself to eat! It has really helped me start better habits!! I would recommend this to anyone struggling to drop some unwanted weight!
