Probably: Green coffee appears to be safe based on the limited research that has been conducted so far. In clinical research, no serious side effects were reported. However, it is important to note that green coffee contains caffeine, similar to regular coffee. Therefore, green coffee can cause caffeine-related side effects similar to coffee.

Dr. Gregg Albers
Addiction Medicine 41 years experience
Diet Pills: Most diet pills are over the counter, and use caffeine, or other natural stimulant. These will not show up in a drug test. If you are overweight to obese, and have a prescribed medication such as phenteramine, then a drug test will not matter as you will have a legal prescription. Please don't try to use an illegal drug, such as cocaine, or you will lose that job!
