Does anyone take weight loss pills? Do they work?

I'm interested to see if any of the diet pills actually work and if so which ones do you use? Do you find they have side affects?

I've tried loads ... I really struggled dieting but I wouldn't stay on tablets longer than you need to. The best ones for me were hydroxycut from Holland and barrat. A little bit scatty at first and increased energy but nothing major, you build up a resistance over time. Not tried but also heard great things about green tea capsules.

The only way diet pills work is if they are made of speed which is dangerous and illegal
The ones with caffeine and that other herbal thing will only work in as much as you may be more conscientious about what you eat when you eat them.
Even the ones that make you poo out fat won't work if you eat a high carb diet as they have no effect on calories from carbs and sugar. Personally, I can put away a huge amount of low fat, high carb food and not lose weight.
Save your money and spend it on swimming or a Fitbit or something useful to make you more active.

Ok so they don't really work then, well the legal ones anyway! What about appetite suppressants or are they the same thing? I heard of one beginning with X that doctors can prescribe too but it's available online.

Do you mean Xenecal? If you do, you can get them from the chemist. I tried the max strength ones which were expensive. They did nothing for me, but I don't really need to lose much, so I gave them to a friend who had more to lose and they did nothing for her either! I'd say don't bother with pills.
