Dear Margie
At an Obesity Congress a while ago, researchers reported good results with Xenical and Reductil. Both these diet aids need to be prescribed by your medical dr, so chat to him/her about their use. Most other diet pills and potions contain potentially harmful ingredients like ephedrine, pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions, etc). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. So be very careful which weight loss products you use.
Take care
