Most Popular Diets of 2012

Number 22: Phentermine

2011 Rank: No Rank

It's one of the only FDA approved diet pills on the market. Available for years, it's the only prescription pill on our list despite the big news of approvals for Qsymia and Lorcaserin this summer.

Phentermine is a short-term prescription appetite suppressant that works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting neurotransmitters in order to decrease your appetite. While it may support short-term weight loss efforts, it comes with a host of side effects like chest pain, fainting, swelling of feet or lower legs, trouble in breathing.
