Dr. Jeffrey Ng Dr. Ng
5 doctors agreed:

Safe ones?: Well, "safe" is a matter of opinion . 1. Phentermine is given and is cheap (15.00 at costco pharmacy). It is a schedule 2 drug and needs to be monitored monthly. Usually good for 3-4 months only. 2. Topamax (topiramate) is another one. Lots of side effects though. 3. Any stimulant (adderall, concerta, ritalin....) causes appetite suppression.

Simple answer: NO!: Don't believe all the hype about acai. All the same crazy claims were also made for hoodia, chromium, products claimed to block cortisol and a bunch of other things. If you are trying to lose some weight, keep a diet log, cut way back on potatoes, bread (of all kinds), pasta, cereal, and rice and get more exercise. Then give it some time. Don't waste your $ on these supplements. ...Read more
