Counterfeit Phentermine Diet Pills
A recent influx of counterfeit Phentermine diet pills have been found in circulation, they are being passed off as legitimate pills from manufacturer Actavis. Actavis has not marketed Phentermine since 2008 and does not plan to resume marketing until 2012 and does not distribute the product to online sellers.
The counterfeits in circulation are white oval-shaped bisected tablets with blue speckles; an “A” and “159” are embossed on them. They have been found to contain fenfluramine, another obesity drug that was formerly used in combination with phentermine more commonly known as Fen-Phen, but was taken off the market in 1997 because of its association with an increased risk of heart valve disease.
These pills can be extremely dangerous and if you find any out there report the counterfeits and any associated adverse events to the Food and Drug Administration’s Med Watch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.
Phentermine diet pills can only be obtained with a prescription from your doctor and should only be used while under the care of a doctor. There are many dangerous side effects associated with Phentermine and with many counterfeit around you never know what you are getting they could be cheap spinoffs or like in this case a deadly mixture that has been banned for causing numerous health issues including death.
