Can i take weight loss meds with zegerid? I need an appetite suppressant or something but not sure which meds i can take with the zegerid

Needs monitoring: You need monitoring when taking antacids/ppi like zegerid with common prescription appetite suppressants because they can increase the level of the suppressant. I'm not a fan of appetite suppressants though. They don't work long term & obesity is a chronic condition. If you don't master the habits for healthy weight, you're going to gain it back. If you master them, you don't need meds. ...Read more

What is the safest appetite suppressant or weight loss aid that I should request from a doctor?

What is the safest appetite suppressant or weight loss aid that I should request from a doctor?

Pill not too helpful: 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

Best OTC appetite suppressant or weight loss stimulants? At approx 130lbs with norm of 115 lbs. Goal weight between 115-120lbs.

Wouldn't advise OTC.: For the weight loss plans that you have, I would re just limiting your intake of carbohydrates over fat and protein and adding mostly a plant based diet. I would suggest, as a general measure, checking your Body mass index (BMI) and seeing where you fall on the chart. I generally would avoid any stimulants, as they come with health risks, including tachycardia, dizziness and other. ...Read more

Appetite: It is best to change your way of eating to a healthy diet instead of appetite suppressant. Since that would be a temporary effect and not a long term weight loss management.
