In brief: New diet pill

I am not sure which pill you are referring to.
... A few rx pills have tried to get passed the fda, but have not succeeded completely. I do believe there is absolute necessity to have (as safe as possible) weight medications avaiable for patients. I also believe those physicians need to have specialized training. I hope a wt med can be used to help people who have lost wt maintain the loss.
