Diet pills

I want to take diet pills for a short time to start getting the weight off. My doctor said she'd prescribe me some but I can't afford what she wants to give me so I'm trying to find something over the counter. I don't know what works though. Has anyone tried any that they can recommend?

none of them work.  change your eating habits and start moving more. it will have more long lasting results, plus healthier for you!

I don't have insurance either. Was it phentermine? Its only like 30 $ for 60 pills where i live. If you can't afford that then you can't afford otc diet pills.

No, it wasn't that. It was over $100.

The only thing diet pills are good for is making you not feel hungry. After a bit it will shrink your stomach back to normal and when you get off the pills you'll feel full faster. However, if you keep eating until you feel stuffed your stomach will get right back to stretched out and you'll have the same crap eating habits. It really has to be a combination of modified eating, exercise and the pills if you want it to last. Otherwise you will be dependent on the pills forever. Without proper nutrition nothing will last. Try drinking psyllium before meals. Not the tastiest (don't get flavored) but its fiber and will fill you up like mad. Plus most people with bad eating habits don't get enough fiber anyhow. Good luck sticking to your plan. It's a tough battle.
