Perscription Weight Loss Pill 

Prescription weight loss medicines are available with the prescription of a physician. It is not available over the counter. This is especially required by the obese with certain complications, as drug abuse might prove disastrous. Prescription weight loss pill are recommended for individuals with a body mass index of 30 and above.

FDA approved drugs are for short term use.

They are basically suppressants of appetite. Some of them are sanorex, meridia, didrex, mazanor, tenuate, adipex-P, bontril and ionamin. Certain drugs such as fenfluramine and phentermine were prescribed around 1995. Heart valve damage is noticed with fenfluramine and phentermine, thereby resulting in its withdrawal. Research also reveals the non occurrence of side effects with phentermine alone. Certain other weight loss pills function as fat absorption inhibitors.

About thirty per cent of the dietary fat is prevented from absorption. Xenical is one such FDA approved drug for weight loss. Xenical and meridia are generally recommended for long term use to combat over weight. The functioning behind the appetite suppressants is that the body is cheated of being full or satiated. Serotonin and catecholamine are chemicals that affect the appetite and these are increased by these diet pills. Take the guidance of your physician for the best pill.
