Common Questions and Answers about Diet pills fda approved


764218 tn?1234573359 D Community and thank you sincerely for asking about diet pills. It seems we hear so many advertisements for diet pills and quick fix ways to lose weight that we tend to want to believe them. However, the truth is that those companies are out to make a profit and they make all sorts of claims trying to get you to part with your money. And, in short, they do not work and many times they are simply not safe.
Avatar m tn i didnt think you could only because diet pills arnt fda approved so no one knows everything thats in them but i was told there was some u could take
177988 tn?1266802499 There's alot of positive feedback that I've seen with awesome results. Don't think they are FDA approved if that is the type of diet pill you are searching for. Good luck with whatever route you choose.
Avatar m tn I have seen the commercial in general about more of us having HCV and that we should seek the test.. But, within it have heard no mention of a particular drug.. I live just outside of Chicago... seems odd and I have my local CBS, NBC etc.. thru Direct.. I missed an opening for a clinical by about 2 hours... My Dr is in Indianapolis and is good. Recommended by friends on this forum. Until I joined, I had no Hepatologist.. Next appt is July.. So as I read all the posts above, I can only hope!!
Avatar n tn I'm looking for information on the effect of diet pills on type 1 diabetic's. Specifically, I'm thinking of trying a product called cylaris. If anyone can give me any type of information, good or bad, or otherwise, I would truly appreciate it. Thanks again!
Avatar f tn sorry to hear of her condition. Ordering online is convenient, but not always safe. Do you know the website she ordered from? It is possible that she may have been prescribed pills that were not FDA approved and/or possibly "man made" to be a cheap imposter of the true drug. There are fake dr's and pharmacies online. Buyer beware! When the product is from an unknown or illegitimate source, who the hell knows what we are really putting into our bodies.
Avatar n tn Is it FDA approved for steroid abusers? No, it is not. Is hCG approved by the FDA in a general usage for certain specific uses? Yes, it is. HCG is a glycoprotein composed of an alpha subunit and a beta subunit. HCG is closely related to two other gonadotropins, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), as well as thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), all three of which are glycoprotein hormones.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
Avatar f tn There are actually alot of reviews online about different diet pills.
190885 tn?1333029491 My son swears by the caveman diet. Essentially you can eat all the meat, veggie, fruit and nuts and seeds. No dairy of grains. I know two big things that put on weight are wheat and dairy, especially cheese. If you get hungry between meals, drink water, yup, more water!
Avatar n tn This diet is not approved by Stephen Barrett, M.D., nor is it approved by the FDA, the AMA, the pharmaceutical industry or the diet industry. They would prefer to have repeat customers, no doubt! The diet industry is a multi-billion dollar business that thrives on failing its customers. When you consider that something like 98% of dieters either fail to lose the weight they want, or else cannot keep it off, it's no wonder why it's so lucrative.
Avatar n tn If you are extremly obese, you can take help of diet pill phentermine,xenical(FDA approved prescription diet pills) etc. with proper execrcise. But before using diet pill you take proper precaution: Diet pills do help to control obesity and shed off the extra pounds which you are uncomfortable with.
Avatar m tn It's the one used for and applied for IND status in the FDA Phase II trials. Because it's not FDA approved yet, no cancer cures can be made. Boosts immune system which is believed to relate to anti-tumor activity. It's one of the safest ones you can take if you don't have an autoimmune disorder. Large cancer treatment centers allow it above anything else. In addition it's the only beta-glucan you can take orally *effectively*.
Avatar f tn I am on day 8 with shots, not hungry, losing 1 pound a day, have energy (didn't with pills). Very happy with results. Can easily make it 6 weeks on this diet -- no problem. Seeing one pound a day disappear is incentive enough. And I'm not even exercising. Walking 10 - 60 mins a day, and 60 only 2 x a day, if that. Got prescription and shots through $400 for lab work (Lab Corp) and consultation with doctor over phone (they are in Florida).
921323 tn?1268679412 But as a result of this visual similarity, I’ve found that a good number of the posted comments were written in defense of this “miracle” diet, which combines supplementation with a hormone first detected in the urine of pregnant women (yep) and...a daily 500 calorie restriction. So I thought it was a good idea to readdress the issue, with a renewed focus on HCG this time. Drum roll please... I think the HCG Diet is a bad idea for at least three reasons.
280238 tn?1190227491 Hi Mary, You know, they have that Alli, which IS FDA approved, its the over the counter form of Orlistat. It supposedly blocks like 30% of the fat you consume. The catch is though, its only gonna work if you are eating healthy already. Its not free ticket to eat whatever you want. I tried it for like 3 days and didn't like it, upset my stomach a bit.
Avatar n tn It worked good for me. As far as diet I started with the Swank diet but think the Paleo Diet has shown more success in threating neurological diseases. As far as the dental thing I had 10 root canals and an assortment of fillings. My gums were bleeding and that was clearly a problem in my case. Everyone must decide this issue for theirself because this is a major decision. I have some information concerning this issue that I will post.
Avatar n tn However this has not yet been approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Hence the safety of taking these pills has yet to be confirmed. Long term side effects have not yet been studied. Hence it is advised not to take medicines or pills not approved by concerned authorities of your country. Hence even if you need to take this, please discuss this with your doctor and take under medical supervision. The best way to lose weight is through diet control and exercise. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hello... First of all, these supplements shouldn't be taken by people under the age of 18. I am not a big fan of "diet pills" and while the company who manufactures these can say just about anything they want...Unless they have been approved by the FDA, I wouldn't suggest taking them. Lastly, with a known V-Tach arrhythmia, any type of "diet pill" is a NO,NO! Please consider the pros and cons if you choose to take these.

Avatar n tn Some trained psychopharmocologists have become aware of this treatment in clinical study and some might use it if standard antipsychotics fail to work as it can be taken with all conventional antipsychotics except for Clozaril with which it interacts. But see if what are standard FDA approved antipsychotics work.
Avatar f tn ) Alli is the only weight loss pill that's approved by the FDA, but there are certain problems that go along with that pill as well. I suggest trying to lose weight on your own before looking into other kinds of alternative "help". There are no quick fixes or magic pills that will get you to your goal, and maintain that goal. Portion control, a healthy balanced diet and exercise will get you get to where you want to be.
1783159 tn?1450767156 I have a friend whose using the Alli pills which are the only FDA approved diet pills. I know you mentioned ways to loose weight without taking pills but I definitely wanted to mention those because she's had great success on them. Also just cut back on calories and watch what you eat. Drink mainly water and try to exercise when you can. Mainly though it's what you put in your body in my opinion. Good luck!

1344197 tn?1392822771 In addition, these providers often suggest that Bioidentical Hormones can only be obtained from a compounding pharmacy. The fact is that there are many FDA-approved bioidentical hormone products available in the U.S. today. In fact, they have been available in the U.S. since 1975! Most all FDA-approved bioidentical hormones have been available in the U.S. for a long time and have extensive studies to support their safety and effectiveness.
Avatar m tn As for you comment about "We don't recommend the HCG diet or any others that use products not approved by the FDA" Then why do you all discuss and many endorse "Armour Thyroid" in the thyroid forum, a necessary but not "FDA approved" substance that many thyroid sufferers use and need. In the thyroid community many use and NEED it. Armour Thyroid is a "natural" thyroid replacement medication that is available by prescription.
1468797 tn?1291476579 Though how much of weight lost varies in individuals but people usually lose 5%-10% of their body weight. Approved by the FDA in 1999, Xenical is the first in amongst anti-obesity drugs available and known as lipase inhibitors. Lipase is an enzyme that breaks down dietary fat for use in the body. Xenical interferes with lipase function by decreasing dietary fat absorption to at least by 30 percent since the undigested fats are not absorbed hence fewer calories are available to the body.
Avatar n tn I am healthy but currently don't have insurance to go talk to a doctor. has anyone tried this way also. i refuse to do diet pills because they don't work. Or if you have any other ideas?
Avatar f tn The majority of them don't work and if you do get lucky enough to lose weight on them, most likely you will gain it all back (+ some) as soon as you stop taking the pills. For the most part, they are a waste of $. Alli is the only OTC weight loss aid that is approved as both safe and effective by the FDA. Without knowing what meds you take, it would be impossible to say whether or not the products you mentioned would conflict with your current med.
