"[P]hentermine plus 5-HTP is effective in reducing alcohol intake and suppressing alcohol withdrawal seizures [in rats]," according to a study from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
This effect is thought to be due to phhentermine raising dopamine levels and 5-HTP raising serotonin levels.
