What is the most effective weight loss pill for losing at least fifty pounds or more, using either OTC or prescription?

None: Studies show that probably no more than 8-10% of body weight will be achieved with weight loss pills. Unfortunately, no one can really stay on diet pills the rest of their life so weight regain is pretty much a given unless coupled with diet & exercise. There is no quick fix to losing weight other than hard work and good eating habits. Trust me, if there were a quick fix everybody would be thin. ...Read more

At store I saw a "weight loss pill". It contained a blend of stuff  described as "potent xanthine stimulants".Does xanthine actually cause weight loss?

Not weight loss : The xanthine derivatives are agents that resemble natural occurring xanthines such as caffeine, theobromine and methylxanthines. These are plant alkaloids and components of coffee, tea and chocolate. While they are mild stimulants they would not be considered a principal treatment for weight loss and may contribute to side effects associated with taking them. ...Read more

Is there any weight loss pill that is effective and safe- I am workingout a lot and eating well but i want to lose 10 lbs in 1 month.....Is it possibl?

Is there any weight loss pill that is effective and safe- I am workingout a lot and eating well but i want to lose 10 lbs in 1 month.....Is it possibl?

To lose a pound: You need to burn off 3, 500 calories that you don't take in. Ten pounds would be 35, 000 calories; which would require you to burn off almost 1, 200 calories a day that you don't eat. That equates to waking 120 miles/day or almost starvation, which is not recommended. There are no "safe" diet pills; all prescription ones have potential dangers and the otc ones are a fraud. Try longterm diet/exercise. ...Read more

Second, fiber....helps gut hormones and metabolism ...Read more
