If you have been struggling to lose weight and have tried many different programs diet pills might be the way to go.

If you have decided to use diet pills to lose weight, please use your common sense and talk with your doctor before taking any medication. Diet pills can be dangerous if not taken properly.

For diet pills that need a prescription you can find many that are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). These diet drugs are Meridia, Tenuate, Phentermine, Didrex, Bontril, Adipex, and Xenical. Side effects for these diet pills can be monitored by your doctor and he can also explain how and when to take them effectively.

There are side effects for prescription diet pills just like any other medication. The side effects vary with the diet pills that is taken but, the most common side effects for diet pills are sore throat, upset stomach, sinus inflammation, rash, more painful menstruation, nervousness, nausea, nasal inflammation, loss of strength, loss of appetite, pain in the joints, insomnia, increased appetite, headaches, flu like symptoms, dry mouth, dizziness, depression, increased coughing, constipation, back pain, anxiety, indigestion, and abdominal.

Diet pills are usually designed for people who are suffering from obesity with their weight being over 35 pounds of what they should be. Even with taking these diet pills you must still eat properly and exercise.

Over the counter diet drugs are one of the fastest growing industries today. These diet drugs are not classifieds as drugs so they do not have any regulations designed for them.

These over the counter diet drugs do have side effects as with all medications. The reason for so many side effects is that many different ingredients are used and the dosage may not be proper for each individual. Some of the side effects include: nervousness, tremors, diarrhea, bulging eyes, increased heartbeat, high blood pressure or even heart failure.

The drug companies that manufacture diet drugs are in fact working on inventing diet drugs that work on our brain and our stomachs, to help suppress our appetites in various ways.

There are side effects even with these diet drugs. For diet drugs that work on our brain to reduce our appetites include: heart damage, impotence, depression, hair loss, fever, chest pain, high blood pressure, this is just a few of the listed side effects.

For the diet drugs that work on our stomach to suppress our appetites are prescription drugs like Xenical. Side effects include: vomiting, vaginal inflammation, urinary tract infections, increased problems with your teeth, problems sleeping, rash, respiratory tract infections, rectal pain or discomfort, oily discharge, nausea, muscle pain, menstrual pain and or more cramping, increased defecation, headaches, gum problems, gas with fecal discharge, flu like symptoms, fecal incontinency, oily stools, fatigue, earaches, dizziness, diarrhea, back pain, arthritis, anxiety, abdominal pain or discomfort. You should also be a low fat diet in order to reduce these side effects.

Even diet pills that are herbal or claim to be all natural are also associated with some health concerns. Do not trust a diet drug that claims to be all natural any more than you would an over the counter or a prescription drug.

Diet pills can work very effectively when used correctly with a proper diet and exercise program. But, some diet pills  lose the effectiveness after repeated use. So, after you are stable at the weight that you should be, go off the diet pills and try to eat right and keep exercising.

The use of diet drugs should always be discussed with your doctor before you start taking them. Your doctor should know your medical history and every type of weight loss program you have tried in order to prescribe the correct diet drugs for you.
