Anorectic agents generally known as diet pills are medications which decrease or inhibit appetite and aid in the reduction of food intake, therefore aiding weightmloss. Most currently FDA-approved appetite medications are dispensed by prescription due to potential side effects and contraindications. Diet pills alone are seldom successful in deriving long-term weight reduction. They should only be taken under the direct supervision of a physician specifically trained in their use as a part of a multi-modal treatment program including diet, exercise, ...Read more
No.: Over the counter pills often contain harmful ingredients and are not regulated as prescription drugs are regulated. Anything that cuts your appetite likely works on your autonomic nervous system, and that affects your heart rate, blood pressure, vascular tone, etc. Don't take chances with your health.

Although not fda approved are any of the OTC diet pills any good? Is there one you suggest that won't give you jitters. What would you say to take?
Diet pill: This is a repeat of what I have said before. My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting or a pill, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, ; start doing some cardiovascular exercise. ...Read more

How can I find documentation on where in the GI system a specific pill is absorbed? I have no colon so slow release pills do me no good.
You should ask your doctor.: Because your digestive tract has been surgically altered, your absorption pattern will be different then it would have been if your digestive tract were intact.

You mean BCP's: There is no specific reason not to consume "social" quantities of alcohol while on most oral contraceptives, but you should talk to the prescribing physician for information on whatever pill you are on.

Cardio Mix: You cannot target the abdomen specifically for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue that you'd like to lose, then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet.
