Is it?

I was looking at xenical sites and saw the name and wondered if it was a better alternative to ask for.

TBH, don;t know a huge amount about it, but there was something, called phen-fen, IIRC, that was banned in the USA, phentermine was definitely one of the ingredients...

I used this a few years ago. Was prescribed it by a slimming clinic. I heard that it was also banned but did not know if it was just hearsay. You have so much energy on it, hence to say why it might have been banned!!

I had a quick google, and it was banned in 2000.

It isn't an amphetamine, but it acts like one. It's addictive, and can cause, amongst other things, leakage of the heart valves and fatal pulmonary typertension. It was being dished out by weigh loss clinics without information being given out about how dangerous it is.
