Dangerous Weight Loss Drugs

The diet industry is booming. It seems that just about anywhere you look you see ads for the newest weight loss miracle drug blaring in your face. These so called “miracle” drugs supposedly help you to lose weight without ever stepping on a treadmill or altering your diet in anyway.

But the sad fact about weight loss is that the only non-surgical procedure way to rid yourself of extra pesky pounds is through diet and exercise. There is no miracle drug that will do all the work for you. And what’s more, these drugs can have some pretty serious potential side-effects in addition to the fact that they simply don’t really work.

One of the main reasons these drugs are dangerous is that many of them side step the FDA by using the supplement classification. Supplements do not have to be monitored by the FDA and any supposed efficacy has not necessarily been proved. Dosages are also not monitored or regulated and there is no way to really know exactly how much of a certain drug you are ingesting. These over the counter weight loss drugs can result in:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Psychosis
  • Heart palpitations
  • Stroke
  • Death

If you are looking to lose weight, skip the “miracle” drugs and start a feasible diet and exercise plan to reach your goals.
