APPETITE SUPPRESSANTS


FDA approved weight loss drugs include Adipex-P/Phentermine, Tenuate, Bontil, 5-HTP, Xenical and Meridia. Many of these drugs increase serotonin and catecholamines (chemicals in the brain) which affect both mood and appetite. Prescription drugs are used in conjunction with diet and exercise to maximize efficient and timely weight loss. Most diet drugs are only approved for short-term use. Meridia and Xenical, however, are approved for long-term use in people battling chronic weight problems.
