For many people trying to lose weight-- these last few weeks have been quite a roller coaster ride.
Two drugs touted only a year ago as miracles, turned out to be potentially dangerous-- even fatal.
You might think that would put an end to doctors and patients combining drugs for weight loss.
But now there's another drug combination that's gaining popularity.

Whatever the cause more Americans are obese than ever before. DR WEITZNER: WE EAT TO FILL A VOID WE EAT TO RAISE OUR PLEASURE AND TO DECREASE STRESS.
Many would say that the answer for those who are overweight is to simply eat less and exercise more ... Naomi Hart wishes it were so easy... NAOMI HART: ITS THIS MONKEY ON YOUR BACK.ALOT OF PEOPLE SAY JUST USE A LITTLE WILLPOWER JUST USE A LITTLE SELF CONTROL
Now nearly 40 and the mother of two, Naomi has struggled with her weight since childhood ... trying countless diets and drugs, traumatizing her whole family in the process... including younger brother Robert Weitzner,now a psychiatrist.
It was when another doctor put her on phen/fen that Robert got involved. DR WEITZNER: I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN VERY APPREHENSIVE ABOUT USING IT EVEN BEFORE THE HEART VALVE ABNORMALITIES CAME OUT.
He suggested naomi stop taking the fenfluramine ... the component of the phen/fen combination that has come under fire and switch to an anti-depressant similar to prozac called Zoloft.
Now she is taking that drug and the appetite suppressant phentermine ... a combination she says changed her life. NAOMI HART: ZOLOFT MADE ME NORMAL LIKE A NORMAL PERSON AND PHENTERAMINE WITH ZOLOFT MADE A NORMAL PERSON ON A DIET.
In three years, naomi has lost close to 100 pounds ... which inspired her brother to devote himself to helping others try to lose weight by using the combination of an appetite suppressant and an antidepressant... a combination that has come to be known as phen/pro. DR WEITZNER:I WOULD RECOMMEND IT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE A BINGING DISORDER, FOR PEOPLE WHO BINGE PARTICULARLY LATE AT NIGHT, PEOPLE WHO HAVE SEVERE CRAVINGS AND PEOPLE WHO EAT FOR EMOTIONAL REASONS.
There are no studies on whether or not the combination of phen/pro is safe and effective, and it has never been approved by the Food and Drug Adminstration.
Yet it is catching on ... tauted in books and offered by large weight loss chains.
But noted obesity expert dr. George Blackburn says phen/pro may be just another false promise. DR. GEORGE BLACKBURN: THERE WOULD BE NO BASIS IN THE DOCTORS PRACTICE ON A PROFESSIONAL BASIS TO USE COMBINATION DRUGS FOR THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY BECAUSE NOT ONE SINGLE PAPER WOULD SUPPORT THAT. NAOMI HART: I NEEDED THAT MEDICATION THAT WOULD MAKE ME LIKE A NORMAL PERSON WHO EATS TO LIVE NOT LIVES TO EAT AND THAT'S WHAT THAT MEDICATION DOES FOR ME....
