No: Most over the counter medications are inefficient and have no significant randomised clinical studies or fda backing.

Appetite suppressant: All of them are intended for short term use; all are "speed" like drugs, with potential for becoming habit=forming, if not addictive. All tend to become less effective with continued use.
