Not exactly: There are no effective over-the -counter appetite suppressant, orlistat (alli) can be helpful in weight loss by cutting down on the fat you absorb, but it is essential to follow a low fat diet.

NO: This question comes up quite frequently. I've never found anything over-the-counter that works as well in certain people as adipex. Please consult your doctor before you do any dietary program.
