Diet Pills (Definition)

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.

Have you heard of the over-the-counter diet pill thinogenics. If so are they ok to take?

Have you heard of the over-the-counter diet pill thinogenics. If so are they ok to take?

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. Adopt a healthy lifestyle and don't look for a quick fix. ...Read more

No magic pills but..: While exercise helps, it is possible to lose weight without it, but it is impossible to lose weight without a healthy diet.

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

What to do if I have read the side affects of anti anxiety pills and I do not want to take them anymore is it bad if just take a sleeping pills instead?

Not a good idea: the medicine works because of the consistent use of it in your bloodstream, thats how it keeps you calm. Everyone freaks out over side effects without giving the medicine a try. you might have none. I have taken medicine post surgery and had little to no side effects. Rethink this. Ask your doctor for any more questions. ...Read more

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. The only person who would have the details of what kind of surgery you had and what medications you're taking is your personal physician. You should ask him or her that specific question. ...Read more

Can you tell me on a side note what are the rules with consuming alcohol, if i don't take the pill that day is it safe to drink that night?

Can you tell me on a side note what are the rules with consuming alcohol, if i don't take the pill that day is it safe to drink that night?

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. If you miss the pill, and then drink, you may be disinhibited and engage in unsafe sex with all its consequences. Safe drinking in women averages 1 drink/day, and never 4 or more at one time. ...Read more

I have a swollen abdomen due to water retention for years and take a water pill daily, but they do not seem to work that well of late. What to do next?

Need to find reason: Fluid in the abdominal cavity is called ascites. There are many reasons for ascites, some related to malignant reasons, most to benign but serious causes, such as heart, liver and kidney failure. While diuretics (water pills) can improve the amount of ascites, it is critical to find out the underlying reason and address that. See your physician for further testing. ...Read more

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. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more
