In brief: Side effects
There are very few, if any, medications that have no side effects.
Our bodies are wondrously complex and delicately balanced machines. To tinker with one part using a medication almost always causes additional effects in another part. The goal is to minimize these side effects but they are almost always there to some extent.

However, you can use a strategy of combining lower dosages of medications which use different mechanisms of appetite suppression. This allow you to get an significant, even synergistic benefit, while minimizing side effects

In brief: Diet pills
There are a constant stream of medications that come to market, both via prescription and over the counter that are promoted to be the biggest, latest, easiest path to the loss of weight.
None have ever been shown to be the panacea for the obesity woes in america. Weight loss requires common sense and help with a dietician and an exercise planner.
