Being overweight is the root cause of many other health problems like: diabetes, cardiac issues, blood pressure etc. So, at times it takes a combination of different methods to reduce the weight. Prescription weight loss pills aka anti-obesity drugs might sometimes be prescribed to the patients as a supplementary tool to bring about the desired weight loss in addition to consuming low-fat and low-calorie foods and a good exercise regimen.
There are very limited number of over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss drugs that do not require a doctor’s prescription like: Orlistat. Many people who are trying to shed their extra weight might use dietary supplements or herbal medications, for the apparent lack of side effects. We advise you to consult your doctor before taking any anti-obesity medicine.
