Prescription Diet Pills
Do you need to drop a few pounds? Or are you what the medical community considers morbidly obese? Are prescription diet pills the answer for your situation? I hope to answer these questions with facts about prescription diet pills. There a numerous prescriptions out there that doctor prescribe on a daily basis. Some of them are stimulants that rev up your metabolism. Others suppress appetite. And some prescription diet pills do both. There is a lot of controversy surrounding the diet pill industry and consumers need to be aware of whom these medications are intended for.
Some doctors write scripts for people who really do not need anything more than a good healthy eating plan. Handing out prescription diet pills is not the answer to our growing problem of morbid obesity. People who are considered morbidly obese should be given access to whatever services are available whether it is prescription diet pills, weight loss surgery, a nutritionist, and/or a personal trainer. Individuals needing to lose a small amount of weight, less than 30 pounds, should not be given prescription diet pills. Not only can they control and lose their excess weight with a healthy diet and exercise, diet pills can cause addiction. Individuals with a large amount of weight to lose should be allowed the medications but only until they learn and healthy way of eating and overcome their addiction to food. It should also be stressed when giving the overweight population prescription diet pills that the product will not work without a healthy eating and exercise regime.
If surgery is not an option, you can not afford weight loss surgery, or diet and exercise has failed then you may want to speak to your health care provider about prescription diet pills. Always seek the advice of your doctor before starting a weight loss regime.
