The Inside Story
Anorectic drugs are marketed as appetite suppressants. They are similar to the dangerous drug class of Amphetamines. Anorectic drugs include: benzhetamine (Didrex), diethylproprion (Tenuate, Tepanil), fenfluramine (pondimin), mazindol (Sanorex, Mazanor), phendimetrazine (Bontril, Prelu-2, Plegine) and phentermine (Ionamine, AdipexP). Most diet pills can be purchased in the drug store without a prescription.
