Fastin (phentermine) & Fenfluramin: Fastin (phentermine) is on the market as an appetite suppressing medication to be used for short-term weight loss. Fenfluramine was taken off the market a decade ago because it caused pulmonary hypertension and death in some people. It helped with weight loss process by acting as an antidepressant, like prozac. You could get just as good results taking Fastin (phentermine) and Prozac (fenzac). Be sure to exercise too!

Diet "miracle": Fen-phen was a combination of two prescription medications used for weight loss. Fenfluramine was pulled off the market after concerns were raised about valve injuries. Phenteramine remains available in the states.
