  • Yes, there is one prescription one I remember my doc mentioning. I forget what it's called, but as I recall it's one of the fat blocker ones. When you eat food with certain kinds of fat, it binds to the fat so it doesn't get absorbed. He said he'd be happy to give it to me, but warned that it causes really nasty greasy B.M.s, and not always controllable...... I opted to just restrict my diet and get more exercise.

  • ask your dr, but I'm betting he/she tells you no. the label says not to take them while pregnant or breastfeeding.
