What is the most effective weight loss pill available?

Can't rely on a pill: Over-the-counter diet pills decrease one's appetite a bit (they are related to stimulants). A person'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 actually worked, we would not have so much obesity in america. ...Read more

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

Largely No, Neither: Most Rx & OTC Wt products not good. Victoza (liraglutide) +/- Symlin can help. Body is constantly tearing itself down, thus ?ing body mass/wt.

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

I just saw an ad for the weight loss pill Belviq, (lorcaserin) is it safe and effective to use? Thank you

Don't believe the: hype! Ads are intended to sell, and to entice, and not necessarily to provide results or outcomes to everyone. You have to look behind the hype & find out the ingredients & see whether they are even safe to use. Your best bet to losing weight is to work with your doctor to come up with a medically sound plan that involves exercise & good nutrition (work with a nutritional consultant), not a pill. ...Read more
