Sold in pharmacies without a prescription, and usually beat us temptation and buy those products, but do not know whether they actually work, or that effects may occur, or if there are any restrictions for use.
The obsession to be thin today is such that we are willing to do anything to get it, dieting only starve us, and we even can cause an eating disorder, excessive exercise and do as a last resort we take pills to lose weight, but do not actually know that these latter should only be prescribed to people whose obesity suffer from various diseases and therefore need to lose weight quickly as in the case of non-insulin dependent diabetes, disease coronary arterial hypertension.
Weight Loss Pills both over the counter as prescription medicines (as recommended for continuous periods or in excess) can cause the following: nervousness, restlessness, insomnia, high blood pressure, fatigue and hyperactivity, heart and palpitations, congestive heart failure or heart attack, headaches, dry mouth, vomiting and diarrhea or constipation, abdominal discomfort, chest tightness, numbness of limbs, excessive sweating, dizziness, menstrual irregularities, changes in sexual desire, hair loss, blurred vision, fever and urinary problems.
Most slimming pills and drugs, either with or without a prescription, claim to have diuretic effects, moderators of appetite and fat burning. But, except for prescribed medications in case of obesity, the rest is largely ineffective if not combined with diet or exercise, and even dangerous if taken without control. That is, if taken, should be by prescription or in addition to a weight loss plan seriously.
Types of pills to lose weight:
Diuretics and laxatives, pills or infusions based on dandelion, green tea, birch, artichokes, plum … plants known for their diuretic and digestive properties. They are effective in case of digestive issues and fluid retention or constipation issues but do not eliminate the extra kilos, much to say that eliminate body fat stores. Do not abuse them because they can promote the dehydration of the body, which can cause fatigue and dizziness. Moreover, what they do is remove fluid, so the weight is lowered again misleading and recover quickly.
• Decreased absorption of fats: to ban or reduce the absorption of fats in the body, specifically in the intestine. In pharmacies and health food stores there are many herbal preparations they intend to use this mechanism. However, the only drug with proven effects in this regard is Ecumenical, which is used only by prescription in the treatment of people with obesity issues real. In no case can be used to remove extra kilos, as their side effects are very dangerous.
• Tambourines: there are products that attempt to moderate the appetite based on fibers that swell in the stomach and give sense of satiety. Usually taken 10 to 30 minutes before meals. Although not dangerous, not advised if you have delicate intestine, nor can start consuming large amounts of fiber if we are not used.
To lose weight, consult your doctor, especially if you have severe obesity or hypertension problems. Of course, ask before taking any product, since most do not fulfill the promises announced and can be dangerous. Flee pills prescribed by doctors that promise weight loss in a short time and without effort, of which sold on TV or internet, the formulations and any other products of uncertain composition. Do not let them fool you: you can not lose in two days what has been gained in several months or years, goes against all logic and nature itself.
