Phen-fen pills. Several pills of Phen-fen, a herbal form of the appetite suppressant Fen-phen. Fen-phen itself contains the drugs fenfluramine and phentermine, and was originally prescribed as a treatment for obesity. The herbal form here is not a prescription drug, but has broadly the same effects. Fen-phen has now been touted as some kind of panacea. It has been said to be able to treat cancers, depression, hyperactivity and even AIDS.
