The way I read it is the FDA had NOT approved it yet, but some committee they have recommended approving it.

It is just a combination of two older drugs, naltrexone and wellbutrin. I will wait and see how tt works, but frankly until it has been taken by lots of people for a long time, I will not volunteer to be a guinea pig.

I took Redux, and ended up stopping it just before they pulled it from the market due to side effects. I had to have multiple echocardiograms and it was a real mess. I gained back the weight I lost as soon as I stopped taking the drug anyway.

Now, I am losing again, but slowly and steadily like I should.

Take care, Annette
