About

Weight loss drugs, also called anti-obesity medications or diet pills, are medicines that help to reduce weight.

Weight Loss Pills

Obesity requires long-term treatment to promote and sustain weight loss. Use of prescription drugs may be appropriate for some people.

These medicines help regulate weight either by altering appetite, increasing the rate of metabolism or inhibiting absorption from the digestive tract.

Prescription weight loss medicines include orlistat, phentermine, lorcaserin, and phenteramine plus topiramate. Others like sibutramine and rimonabant have been banned in many countries.

Common side-effects include high blood pressure, palpitations, restlessness and insomnia. Long-term use of weight loss drugs can cause addiction and tolerance. Also, the use of most diet pills in combination with each other has not been well studied.

Weight loss drugs are not a cure-all for obesity. Their use should be combined with exercise and improved diet to lose and maintain weight successfully over long term.

There are certain risks as well as benefits to taking weight-loss drugs, and individuals considering taking drugs or medications for long-term weight loss should understand the basics as well as the risks to such an approach to obesity and weight loss. Some individuals may experience more benefits using weight-loss medications than others, and overall results will be determined by other considering factors, including diet, nutrition, genetics, exercise and dedication to healthy lifestyle living.

My remedy for obesity is not through a prescription drug. I am on Prescopodene which I find really helpful in terms of suppressing my hunger. I am more open for the idea of using an all-natural diet pills cause, I think it won't give you as much side effects. So far this pill I'm using does not give me any of those feelings of excessive thirst or any palpitations which I think is great.

I have been searching on the net to find the right pill to use for weight loss. I came across this site and I gave this Prescopodene a fair trial for a month. I'm actually glad that I did because it does what it says really. I felt tolerable headache for some few days but it did eventually stopped. My first month is truly amazing. I'll give it more a go. Thanks again!

For almost 6 years, I've been using different ways to get back on shape. After my doctor told me that I was obese and presented all the risk it could give me, I decided to somehow struggle on changing to live healthier. I found it hard to suddenly shift to a very controlled kind of lifestyle. I have tried the best natural way which is exercise and diet, but along with my routine, I could never keep up with it. A lot of friends recommended pills and shakes, and eventually, I decided to take this pill as my doctor told me to give it a try. It's been like a month and I'm ecstatic with the result though I don't think it would give me a magical kind of weight loss. I'm liking this because I am now having a command over my eating habit and it makes it more possible for me to go to the gym at least 4 times a week. This makes my whole weight loss journey fun and easy.

This is good stuff!Taking pills for weight loss is not bad at all. I got a prescription for Liproxenol from my doctor and it worked for me with no unnecessary side effects. I can now control my appetite and gets an extra energy to do some exercise.I can never be more than happy.

I've heard a little about this Liproxenol and they say it's good stuff. haven't had the opportunity to try it but in case I get a little more tired with this pill I'm currently taking, I'll jump into purchasing it. Only problem is, I don't know where.

HI, could any one tell me the name of the pill which would do really good in reducing body weight without any side effects. this is my number 91-9597967930

Hi Jonnu, it's Prescopodene coupled with Clear Cleanse Pro for a synergistic effect.

I have not tried using Prescopodene with the Cleanser. I have lost enough weight on the pill alone so I thought it's enough. Maybe the Cleanser is just only speeds up the time to lose weight.
