Phentermine in the EU

Anorexigenic drug Phentermine has been sold in many European countries under different trade names.

In contrast to the USA, where most of the companies have been selling Phentermine pills under the generic name Phentermine Hydrochloride, Phentermine pills in EU were being sold only under the original trade names.

In 1999, the Committee for Proprietary Medicinal Products (CPMP) recommended the European Commission to withdraw Phentermine anorexigenic drug from the market.

In the same year, EU doctors have stopped prescribing Phentermine. Today, it is impossible to buy or get a prescription for Phentermine in the EU.
