Diet Pills A Lot Of Risk For A Little Lose

 Today i am teach you about Diet Pills A Lot Of Risk For A Little Lose

There are a number of products on the market - both prescription and non-prescription -
which claim's to be effective weight lose aids. Many of these have been associated with
serious medical risks, including heart attack, heart abnormalities, tachycardia, stroke,
seizures and death. The side effects can be daunting, but how realistic are they?
Diet pills fall into several different classes. Most are appetite suppressants of one kind or
another, generally stimulants with effects similar to those of amphetamine. They are
approved for treatment of obesity, where it's considered that the health risks associated
with gross overweight outweigh the risks associated with the medication.
For someone who has less than 30 pounds to lose, the risks are far less cut-and-dried.
While the FDA and manufacturers closely monitor the effects of prescription weight lose medications, over the counter medications and their risks are far less well-documented.

They are even less well-documented for herbal preparations, especially those whose
makers don't officially make weight lose claims for them.
While makers of pharmaceuticals must meet stringent labeling requirements and tests for
safety and effectiveness, those who make weight lose 'supplements' are not regulated in
the same way. As long as they don't contain a 'new' ingredient, or one that has never
been marketed for weight lose purposes, they are not subject to F.D.A review. Instead, the
manufacturer is held responsible for the safety and effectiveness of their products. Often,
that means unregulated dosages, unhealthy additives and ineffective ingredients.
In an effort to encourage improvement in the reporting standards and the pharmaceutical
standards for weight lose medications, the United States Pharmacopoeia has introduced
the Comprehensive Dietary Supplement Verification Program. Currently voluntary, it
involves certification by the U.S.P of certain labeling and practice standards, including that
the product contains the ingredients stated on the label in the strength declared, that theyare within limits for impurities like metals, pesticides and bacteria, that the medication will
be absorbed by the body according to U.S.P criteria, and that it has been created with all
safe precautions.

Until the day that all over the counter medications and herbal preparations marketed as
weight lose supplements and aids are labeled and tested by impartial researchers, there
are some things that you can do to lessen the risks associated with using diet pills.
Research is your best friend. There's a lot of information out there about drugs and herbs
like ephedra, ephinedrine, phentermine and sibutramine. Know what you're taking and
what the risks are so that you can watch for side effects.
Always talk to your doctor before you start taking any drug or herbal supplement. Many of
them interact poorly with other medications, or have an adverse effect on chronic
Follow dosage instructions. Overdoses of stimulant medications, which are a component
of most weight lose preparations, can be serious and severe.

Do not take any weight lose pill or supplement for more than a few weeks without it being
prescribed by a doctor.
Check with your pharmacist when purchasing over the counter weight lose preparations
to be sure that the ingredients do not interact with other medications you may be taking.
Include both prescription and nonprescription medications in your questions.
Ideally, do not take weight lose pills. The effectiveness of most have not been proven at all.
It's an awful lot of risk for such a little lose.
