Diet pills: There are many effective approaches to weight loss that do not include diet pills as a strategy. Those approaches should be exhausted prior to diet pills. Talk to your physician . Sorry but there is no better plan than the hard work that comes with proper nutrition & exercise plus it puts you in control....Good luck!

Diet: Before talking to your dr about diet pill, are you eating nutritiously? Are you spending enough calories, are you mostly eating carb, have you been diagnose with a thyroid problem, are you pcos, do you have type 2 diabetes? Make an assesment of yourself. Have you seen an endocrinologist?
