Dear Aya
As far as I know the original Leanor drops contained norpseudoepinephrine which is a powerful appetite suppressant, but can have many serious side-effects including dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, and psychotic reactions. All over-the-counter medications containing epinephrine (including slimming pills and cold and flu treatments, etc) were taken off the market a few years ago because of their potential for addiction and abuse. Leanor drops containing norpseudoepinephrine are now classified as a schedule 6 medication which can only be obtained with a doctor's prescription.
Please be careful that you don't get hooked on this addictive medication.
Take care

I have a prescription from my Dr, now where can I get Leanor Drops Original and not that Fong Kong Herbal? Why discontinue something that has helped the public for years without any side effects?

Why fix what's not broken. I have used this (looooooooooooooong) before I got married and after my eldest was born and I even had a second child. No side affects or what so ever. Am looking for this again because I cannot get rid of the extras for the last 10 yrs. How can I convince my doc I need it. I am 10 kg over weight. Want to prevent gaining more weight.
