In brief: No OTC meds exist!

I wish there was an alternative to phen/fen.
On a brighter side, the phentermine-still able to be rx by a knowledgeable weight loss physician was responsible for 11% of the 14% total avg. Wt loss of the combo. Fenfluramine (pondimin) was responsible for about 3% of the total avg. Weight loss. The attractive aspect of Fenfluramine was that it mitigated the negative side effects of phentermine.
