A few years back I tried Meridia and ended up being put on Blood pressure meds because of it...I honeslty do not think diet pills are worth the risks..Lisa

ya..most Diet pills are not worth the risk. and really dont help that much.

If you are gonna take something the only thing I would really recommend is Green Tea. It has been proven to help with weight. as well it has many other Health Benefits.

Re: Diet Pills, ANY Good Thoughts?

I took phentermine and had great results w/ them.......Side effect for me was dry mouth and if I didn't stay busy my heart rate would increase.......I took them the beginning of last Feb. for 4 months.....When I started them I weighed almost 170 at 5'1 and dropped to 112........And still at 112....Don't diet or eat healthy but some how the weight stayed off.....May not be for everyone but it did work for me......

Re: Diet Pills, ANY Good Thoughts?

OK, to answer the question I tried the original Xenadrine years ago, took it as directed, had NO adverse side effects and it worked beautifully. Wish I could find some of it still. I'm going to try spirostim, I found a place online that still sells it so I keep ya'll posted. Secondly, A Moore asked for any good thoughts, I don't understand why people who are against any kind of diet pill post a reply in the first place, we know ther are people who are against them, and we respect your opinion. But when I check for replies to a post such as this I hope to find actual answers and not replies that dispute the question. So just a suggestion, if you are completely against diet pills, don't reply. Answer a post that will aid someone with an issue you DO support. No offense intended just a thought.

Re: Diet Pills, ANY Good Thoughts?

I have used tetracal by betastatin in the past coupled with a low carb diet. I used it to get that last 5-10 pounds off and it worked.

Scooter I have used spirostim, it does work, but the diet/exercise recommended for it is very intense, but if you can stand it for 2 weeks which is what I believe the programs is then it's worth it.

This isnt really a healthy thing to do. When You eat really has little effect.

IF you eat 1500 calories in a day and you Burn 2500 then the net result is -1000. this isnt gonna change regardless of when you eat those calories.

Re: Diet Pills, ANY Good Thoughts?

Phentermine worked VERY well for me. I took it beginning in May and I lost 52 pounds as of September 1. I was on a very healthy diet and exercised every day so that helped. If all you are looking for is a quick weight loss, diet pills won't help. They work well with diet and exercise, but alone, you're just starving yourself and any weight you lose will be right back on.
