It's puzzling the FDA approved Qnexa so readily. "The panelists noted the importance of a follow-up study to track cardiovascular effects, underscoring ongoing caution about the extent to which the FDA has been concerned that a diet pill will be prescribed and used correctly." http://bit.ly/yeB4Es

It sounds like its only been researched enough to know Big Pharma will make a lot of money of an FDA backed diet pill.
