    I had a Dr. put me on the Fen Phen Diet. I lost alot of weight and felt great while on the medicine. I had energy and was looking great.

    After they took it off the market and I stopped taking it, of course I gained all the weight back and then some.

    I am now wondering if this diet is a cause to some of my problems? I was on the Fen Phen for 2 years.

    Has anyone else taken Fen Phen? And if so do you think it may have caused you problems as well?

    I too wish they still had Fen Phen but a safer version.

    Those 2 years were proably the best 2 years I had. I destroyed all the pictures I had of myself, as it was too depressing to look at how good I was looking.

    I had so much energy back then I kept in shape at a gym.
    Now if I were to find enough energy to make it to a gym, it would only make this DD worse.

    Oh well its just a memory now.

    I was so hot when I was on that diet. Of course the only thing to work for fat people would have to kill them right?

    I was only on it for 3 months, but continued to lose about 45 lbs.

    I am fat again now, but wish I felt and looked like I did then.

    Best two years of my life, could eat what ever I wanted just alot less and the weight just fell off. Don't know if it can be linked to this DD but who knows.
