Ever think about taking diet pills to help you lose weight? Unlike most over-the-counter diet pills, prescription weight-loss medications have scientific research showing their safety and effectiveness.
A smart first step would be to talk to your doctor about prescription medications for weight loss.
Prescription Diet Pills: The Options
There are different diet pills your doctor might prescribe, depending on the amount of weight you need to lose and the timeframe during which you’ll be counting calories:
Short-term option: Phentermine helps you lose weight by suppressing your appetite. It is a safe medicine for most patients, although it can raise blood pressure and heart rate, so it shouldn’t be prescribed for some. Phentermine is FDA-approved for up to 12 weeks of use in a 12-month period.
Prescription Diet Pills: The Newest Option, Orlistat
The prescription drug orlistat (Xenical) is also approved for long-term use in obese patients. It belongs to a class of drugs known as lipase inhibitors and works by blocking the absorption of fat. Orlistat is also available over the counter at half the strength of Xenical and is sold as the drug Alli.
Really do research and TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST! To find the right option for you!
