1 doctor agrees

In brief: Three FDA approved

fat blockers (xenical), amphetamine, and serotonin drugs.
And in all, when you stop them, the weight comes back because they do not change behavior. eat less, exercise more. the psychological barriers to that closely fit with all other compulsive behaviors. http://www.amazon.com/dp/0692496157/ details (in a highly tongue in cheek way) the science and practical ways to change.

In brief: Hate them

I haven't had any person have a permanent sustained weight loss with them in my practice.
Qsymia and Belviq (lorcaserin) look promising according to the fda studies however.
