Dear Friend
Because diet pills have many side-effects and those that contain norepinephrine, can become addictive, I cannot advise you to use them. For individuals with severe obesity there is a product called Xenical which can only be obtained by prescription from a medical doctor. Xenical prevents the uptake of fat from food and when used with a very-low-fat diet, it can assist highly obese individuals to lose weight. If you are only a few kilograms overweight, it is better to use a low-fat, high-fibre diet and combine it with regular exercise to lose that weight without side-effects. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' or 'View old Diet & Food site' and read the various articles on 'Diet pills'.
