There are many natural ways to get rid of the inches and pounds, but often people become impatient with the process and ask their doctors for a weight loss prescription. This is going to sound a bit brutal, but basically, if you walk into a doctor’s office and claiming that you are at the mercy of your weight gain, then it is possible that you could walk out of there with a prescription for one of the following prescriptions.
Adipex weight loss pills are a prescription-only brand of appetite suppressant used for short-term treatment of obesity. Adipex appetite suppressants work by influencing certain neurotransmitters in the brain. This may help to control food urges and decrease appetite. Adipex weight loss pills come in doses of 37.5 mg. Adipex diet pills are addictive and are not recommended for people with a history of drug dependency. They should be taken only as directed.
Bontril diet pills are prescription-only appetite suppressants which, like Adipex, Didrex, and Tenuate, are normally prescribed along with a diet and exercise regimen for strictly short-term use for those suffering from severe obesity. Bontril diet pills come in 105 mg tablets. Patients usually take Bontril weight loss pills for 8-12 weeks. Longer use is neither usual nor effective for weight loss.
Like Adipex, Didrex weight loss pills are a prescription-only brand of appetite suppressant used in the short-term treatment of obesity. Didrex weight loss drugs come in 50 mg tablets. Didrex diet pills are addictive and should be taken only as directed. Like most similar appetite suppressants, the weight loss effects may quickly wear off.
Meridia Diet Pills (Sibutramine)
Meridia is the trade name for sibutramine, a prescription-only drug used in the long-term treatment of obesity. Merida weight loss pills are appetite suppressants that work by controlling centers in the brain to reduce food cravings. Meridia diet pills come in doses of 10mg and 15mg. Some side effects of the drug include blurred vision, dizziness, dry mouth, sleeplessness, irritability, and upset stomach (nausea, constipation, etc.). Studies show that Meridia can help patients to lose about 10 percent of their starting weight. However, Meridia weight loss pills may have a tendency to elevate blood pressure and heart rate and is associated with cases of congestive heart failure.
One of the most common appetite suppressants prescribed by doctors, Phentermine weight loss pills are reported to account for 50% of all weight loss prescriptions. Phentermine diet pills work by stimulating a region of the brain called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus regulates sleep cycles, body temperature, and appetite. Phentermine weight pills come in 15, 30 and 37.5 mg tablets. Like most appetite suppressants, Phentermine diet pills should be used in combination with a sensible diet and exercise plan, for a short-term period only.
Tenuate are appetite suppressants that are prescribed for short-term treatment of obesity, in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program. Tenuate diet pills are addictive and should be used with a lifestyle modification counseling program. Tenuate weight loss pills come in two forms: immediate release tablets (Tenuate) and controlled release tablets (Tenuate Dospan). Dosage usually depends on the patient’s weight and Body Mass Index.
Unlike other (appetite suppressant) prescription diet pills, Xenical weight loss pills do not work on the brain, but in the gut. Xenical reduces the amount of fat we absorb from food. The excess fat is then excreted. Xenical diet pills claim to have the ability to block up to one-third of fat from being digested. They come in forms of 120-mg tablets. Xenical may be prescribed for long-term use, although it is recommended that users follow a low-fat diet.
