When a medication containing phentermine in combination with fenfluramine/ dexenfluramine was on the market – pulmonary hypertension & heart valve damage occurred.

In brief: WHY?

It only works while you're taking it and then everything goes back to where it was.
It also can be toxic, even without health problems. Why not learn to eat less and exercise more for the rest of your life?
