Everytime I talk to my doctor about my weight she tells me to just go on a diet and to exercise. As I well know, for some reason that doesn't work for me. I know that I need a boost, like from a pill thats made for that. So, how can I get my doctor to take this as seriously as I do? How can I get her to prescribe me a pill that will help me?

Your Dr is taking it very seriously. They almost never prescribe diet pills anymore. They are highly addictive and only a short term fix anyway. As soon as you go off them the weight comes back...so you stay on them and then your system eventually needs more to get the same benefits..the cycle of addiction is fierce.

Pills are not the answer, and I don't think there is a total diet pill that works. You are blaming the doctors for your situation. Diet and exercise is the best way. Have you tried Weight Watchers. Be realistic, you need to make healthy changes for you. There is no automatic magic pill of tons of people would use it. Even the Hydroxy Cut things tell you to diet and work-out as you take the pills.

Tiffany--nice that you are pushing pills on this Mom. Great judgement and advice--kudos to your stupidity. If she wants them bad enough she should find them on her own. Maybe you can tell others how to find and get crack or something along those lines.
