Is herbal Phen/Fen a hoax?

I have been given herbal Phen/Fen and have found references to it both good and bad. I understand it is made from a plant called St. John’s Wort. I would like to know what the side effects could be from this before I take it. Thanks for your help.

I am concerned that there is such a product called herbal Phen/Fen. Although I was not aware of this product and do not know what is in it, I think it is inappropriate to label a product in such away as to associate it with a prescribed medication for weight loss.

There are herbs that may be able to cause weight loss by increasing metabolic rate, altering fat storage, and/or fat burning. I would assert that it is extremely unlikely that any herbal research exists in weight loss to compare it with the drug Phen/Fen. I would stay away from herbal Phen/Fen and conventional prescription Phen/Fen.

The herb St. John’s Wort is most known for its effective treatment of mild to moderate depression, with only rare side effects of stomach upset and rash.

What you have in your mind?
