Dear Annie
I would recommend that you leave over-the-counter diet pills out of your plan to lose weight because they all have potentially dangerous side-effects. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Weightloss' and 'Diet Detective' to read about all these dangers. Duromine is a schedule 5 drug which has to be prescribed by a medical dr. It too can cause side-effects, so rather be sensible and use an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). If you have a great deal of weight to lose then ask your dr about Xenical which can help you get started.
