Yes: Fda approved diet pills are only prescribed under your doctor's care and for short times only. Tenuate and Phentermine are the safest, but have certain contraindications. If you think you need a diet pill you likely need a good weight loss physician to prescribe a program for you. Most people fail in dieting because they're not being well supervised and get discouraged.

Side effects: It works on the sympathetic nervous system so some common reactions are: palpitations, tachycardia, elevated blood pressure, insomina, nervousness, headache, tremor, diarrhea, unpleasant taste...You might have some or none of the above. Call your doctor to discuss if any new symptoms occur while starting the drug. Good luck.
