I've heard of things here and there that can affect the birth control pill. I just want to know what does for sure.
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. Adopt a healthy lifestyle and don't look for a quick fix. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. 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?
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

No, not really: Diet pills decrease appetite a bit (they are related to stimulants). Other pills block fat digestion. One's desire to eat can be much stronger that a diet pill's power to decrease his appetite, so he will likely continue to eat too many calories. Also, diet pills don't increase one's desire to exercise. If something as simple as a diet pill was effective, we would not have so much obesity today. ...Read more
