Very few: The most common weight loss pill categories are sympathomimetics containing Phentermine which decreases the brains craving for food and orlistat which blocks the absorption of fat in the gut. A new product available is Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate) which is a low dose combination of Phentermine and topiramate.
