The FDA is looking into the safety of an experimental weight loss drug.

Qnexa alters the taste of food and boosts metabolism.

Tests show it can cut a person's body weight up to 15 percent, but the FDA is concerned about possible side effects including heart trouble and depression.

Scientists are reviewing the drug this week and could decide this fall if it's safe to use.
