Should I take weight loss pills?

No: There are very few safe, effective options when it comes to pills to help with weight loss. I enjoy helping people with weight loss, but very rarely doe that involve appetite suppressants, although often other meds are helpful.

Do weight loss pills work in general?

Do weight loss pills work in general?

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.
