    ‚ÄčThe phen-pro combination is not FDA approved, although the individual medicines in the combination are approved. Phentermine is approved for the treatment of obesity. Prozac and the other SSRI drugs used in phen-pro are not approved for obesity.

    It doesn't matter. Doctors in the U.S. are allowed to prescribe medicines for uses not supported by the FDA, and often do. In a published report 11% of the prescriptions written by U.S. physicians were for non-approved uses. The only reason phen-pro is not approved by the FDA is because no one has ever asked the FDA. And no drug company ever will ask., because the medicines in phen-pro are already available as cheap generics or soon will be. Prozac goes off patent in the year 2002. No company can expect to do the required testing and get approval in time to make much profit. The drug companies know, too, that the FDA has a tradition of opposing combination medicines because it makes their task easier. So it took us thirty years to get the first FDA-approved estrogen-progestin combination pill , after every country in the world had it. Faced with such administrative bias, is it any wonder US pharmaceutical companies shy away from combination medicines? But your doctor doesn't have to wait for the FDA. Your doctor can prescribe phen-pro now perfectly legally and safely.
