Redux: Pondamin is generical Fenfluramine and Redux is similar to it. Redux is generic dexfenfluramine. Fenfluramine was removed from the market because it caused heart valve disease and pulmonary hypertension. These medications are not deemed safe for use. I suggest seeking medical help since they affect serotonin in the brain and can change mood and behavior.
