Great news for weight loss - sorta

Yes!  Now you can trade your health for weight loss.  May 'sound' dangerous, but that depends on your perspective.  

Example: Qnexa - in 2010 the FDA said this diet drug said too dangerous for human consumption due to heart problems, birth defects and memory loss.  they're ready to reverse their decision now!  No, the drug isn't any safer now, it's just that the dangers of obesity have been raised up enough to make the side effects worth it.  That's progress!

Fen phen was taken off the market with many of the same ingredients

What’s in Qnexa? It’s a combination of two older drugs: the amphetamine phentermine, which is approved for short-term weight loss, and topiramate, an anti-seizure and anti-migraine drug sold by Johnson & Johnson as Topamax. Phentermine helps suppress appetite, while topiramate is supposed to make patients feel fuller.
