Okay, but, they do 'unnaturally' increase the body's ability to produce serotonin, correct? And if that's the case, what happens when the serotonin booster is removed? Does the body ever return to producing the amount needed?

> Yes phen/fen can make you depressed or make existing depression worse. Take a look at Dr. Bob tips and tricks section check the box that says Phentermine and fenfluramine. People should not mix AD's and weight loss meds I think. There are reports of serotonin syndrome in people using AD + some weight loss meds.

I think you lost something important here. The COMBINATION of Phen/Fen is no longer being used. I doubt there is a doc in the US that will prescribe the combo. =:) My question is specific to PHENTERMINE. It's difficult to find information specific to this drug on its own merits. Every article seems to mix the two together even tho there was a time, and still continues to be the time when Phen (sorry, previously I used the wrong abrev.) was Rx'd alone. That's where I'm in question.

> In me Effexor makes me anything but hungry. Some report Wellby does this too. Another thought is Prozac at a higher than normal dose. Redux is a closely related to Prozac and higher doses of Prozac can cause weight loss. Kills 2 birds with 1 pill.

Redux is just as lethal and problematic as the Phen/Fen combo. It's been linked to a number of medical problems. I'll keep researching.

Thanks for your feedback! :)
