Diet pills
Hi, what is the strongest/best diet supplement I can get from a doctor. Over the counter supplements does not work. I have tried Duromine, but that also does not seem to be effective. I need to lose 20kg.. I am a 45 year old female.

Good morning. Our recommendation would be to consult with a dietitian. Medication is not a one size fits all. Your dietitian can speak to your doctor regarding appropriate medication should they see the need after completing the assessment. They could also provide a meal plan and menu to assist with achieving an energy deficit and developing good behaviours. It's important to achieve sustainable weight loss.
