Fen-Phen (fenfluramine/phentermine) is a weight loss drug used to suppress appetite and cause weight loss. Fen-Phen releases additional serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls how appetite is perceived in the brain. Wyeth Pharmaceuticals manufactured Pondimin and Redux, two drugs using Fen-Phen. The company spent $52 million marketing these drugs but has since paid over $13 billion to settle claims filed by people who used the drugs.
