The use of weight loss pills is something that most people who have struggled with being overweight have considered in their minds, mostly the effectiveness and plausibility of partaking in the use of such medications versus dieting or simple will power. Part of the consideration in taking a weight loss pill is that people in our North American society are completely strapped for time and typically don't want to have to deal with going to yet another meeting at a weight loss clinic, spending extra time counting calories, or putting forth the extra effort of the will to cut back on calories.
Even exercising for those with busy lifestyles can be a huge challenge, not so much to do the exercising but to find the time slot in which to fit the exercising program into. The consideration in taking a weight loss pill is even stronger for those who have such time restrictions on their lifestyles. Some of the problems in a person's mind that are encountered in the consideration of taking a weight loss pill are the moral issues. Words and questions like: 'is it right for me to take a weight loss pill?', 'you are a weak minded person so you need pills to help', 'am I so overweight that I need a pill to help me?' can often plague and harass the person who is considering a weight loss pill, and in some cases prevents them from taking a weight loss pill to help them with their struggle with obesity.
To answer the question, "Is there such thing as a miracle weight loss pill?" I would have to say no because of the qualifying word "miracle", but there are definitely weight loss pills that work and work quite effectively. Why the word "miracle" can never define a weight loss pill is there are too many variables to consider, variables in the individual person's chemistry make up, variables in the mental or psychological makeup of the individual and too many other variables to even list here. Some of the brand name and generic weight loss medications that are well known to have worked for some individuals are as follows: Phentermine, Adipex®, Fastin®, Xenical®, Sibutramine, Meridia®, Bontril®, Didrex®, Ionamin®, Tenuate® and the latest and most popular new weight loss medication Rimonabant (Acomplia®, Zimulti® or Slimona®)
The next question that a person considering a weight loss pill might be asking is how can I find out which weight loss pill is right for me? Well to suggest a few options you could talk to your doctor, you could talk to a health nurse or you could join an online pharmacy forum such as the Drug Network Online Pharmacy Message Board and talk with many different people like yourself and ask what weight loss pills have provided them with some success in losing unwanted weight. The advantage of an online pharmacy forum is that it is as anonymous as you desire it to be, personal issues to do with your weight and weight loss struggles can be discussed without revealing anything about your identity. Forums are a great place to meet friends who deal with similar issues as yourself and can provide self help and personal support to your weight loss endeavours, many benefits are gained by joining an online pharmacy forum.
