No way! Exercise. Losing weight takes work!

In brief: Sure, but...

The medications generally available for weight loss must be considered with extreme caution.
They traditionally have been linked to heart disease, heart attack, heart valve defects and pulmonary hypertension. Educate yourself about the risks and have a good conversation with your regular doctor. Try more conservative measures first. Consult with a Dietitian.
