Fenfluramine/Phentermine, commonly called Fen-Phen, is a powerful diet drug that was taken by millions of Americans to combat obesity.
However, clinical research showed that the fenfluramine portion of the combination can cause heart disease in otherwise healthy patients.
Studies concluded that this drug could cause potentially fatal pulmonary hypertension and heart valve problems, which led to its eventually being pulled from the market.
Though efforts were made to ensure that doctors no longer prescribed this harmful substance, many people were put at risk by this powerful drug.
