I've been thinking about taking diet pills, im 22 and I weigh 250. Would it be a bad idea to start taking hydroxycut? Regular diets haven't worked.

In brief: See doctor

You need a good health history, labs, stratify risk factors determine what meds are best for you, see if surgery is an option.
Overall, it takes a lot of time (years) to loose weight. Lifestyle modification is the most important aspect, this is what takes time , concentration, adjustments, review , and dedication.
