Leptopril™ is an over-the-counter diet pill manufactured by Generix Laboratories and geared toward people who need to lose 20 pounds or more or who have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 27. The Leptopril™ formula appears to contain the same ingredients and dosage as Leptoprin™, an earlier weight loss drug, though at a lower price. Leptopril™ is marketed to both men and women as an “acute metabolic regulator” meant to correct the problems caused by a genetic predisposition for being overweight, though it is not clear how.

The pill is intended to be taken with the two main meals of the day. It is supposed to prevent fat from forming after a meal and keep extra sugar from being absorbed into the blood. At the same time, its stimulant component speeds up the metabolism to give the user energy and burn excess fat. The manufacturers say Leptopril™ users in its clinical trials lost more than twice as much weight as those on a placebo. The number of test subjects and amount of weight lost was not specified.

As with most similar weight loss aids, Leptopril™ has accumulated an abundance of both positive and negative user reviews. Some people report significant weight loss as promised, while others lose minimal amounts of weight and experience side effects. Generix Laboratories makes it clear that Leptopril™ is powerful and not intended for dieters who want to shed only a few extra pounds. They also warn people with diabetes, hypertension, prostate or heart problems, and those who are sensitive to stimulants that this drug may aggravate those conditions. Self-reported side effects included dizziness, headaches, rapid heartbeat, stomach aches, constipation, and panic attacks.

Several diet pill reviewers have alleged that both Generix Laboratories and the manufacturers of the identical Leptoprin™ are owned by the same company, and that both products have misrepresented or even completely contrived clinical trial results. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released a complaint against the company behind Leptopril™ and similar weight loss aids, alleging that it has made claims about weight loss and testing that it cannot back up, among other concerns. This pill is classified as a dietary supplement, and thus has not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Anyone considering taking this or any diet pill should talk to his or her doctor first to find the safest and most effective way to lose weight.
