DrugDrug NameDrug Indication
DB00191PhentermineFor the treatment and management of obesity.
DB00466PicrotoxinUsed internally for relieving respiratory distress. Also for use as an antidote in poisoning by CNS depressants, especially barbiturates.
DB00562BenzthiazideFor the treatment of high blood pressure and management of edema.
DB00574FenfluramineFor the management of exogenous obesity as a short-term (a few weeks) adjunct in a regimen of weight reduction based on caloric restriction.
DB00745ModafinilTo improve wakefulness in patients with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) associated with narcolepsy.
DB00937DiethylpropionUsed in the management of exogenous obesity as a short-term adjunct (a few weeks) in a regimen of weight reduction based on caloric restriction.
DB01105SibutramineFor the treatment of obesity.
DB01546EtryptamineDeveloped in the 1960's for use as an antidepressant before market withdrawal in 1962.
DB01550FenproporexFenproporex is used as an appetite suppressant, and anti-obesity agent [2]; however, due to substance abuse potential, it is an illicit substance in many countries. In some countries, such as Brazil, it is still prescribed -- often in the form of diet pills (ie. Brazilian Diet Pills) which combine amphetamines, benzodiazepines, antidepressants, diuretics and laxatives. In the United States the sale of such diet pills has been banned due to concerns over side effects, and the risk of potentially fatal overdose. However, internet sales and illicit markets has lead to international availability. It has been found by primary care physicians that Brazilian immigrant women utilized imported diet pills at particularly high rates, and sometimes suffered from side effects requiring hospitalization or experienced a loss of employment.
