Amazing Weight Loss: HCG and Weight Loss Pills-Reduce Hunger and Increase Metabolism
Weight loss pills that increase metabolism and diminish hunger and cravings can be added to the HCG diet with amazing results.!There are many kinds of weight loss drugs. Some of them have been around for many years like phentermine and diethylpropion, while others are brand new to the market, like Qsymia, Belviq and Contrave. All reduce appetite and many increase metabolism. Most are available only with a doctor’s prescription, and others are available over the counter (OTC drugs). As discussed below, OTC weight loss medication is ineffective and sometimes dangerous.
Every drug has the potential of side effects. The therapeutic properties of a drug can be thought of as positive side effects, while those that cause a bad reaction are negative side effects. While you want the positive side effect (in this case it would be losing weight), you probably don’t want the negative side effects. Of course, this will depend on the likelihood of experiencing such side effects, and how bad they are.
You should talk to your doctor before taking any prescription weight loss drug. Discuss what the side effects are, how often the side effects occur, and what the potential benefit is. Also, be sure to discuss any concerns you have about any particular drugs you are considering. Being well-informed is the key to getting the best prescription for you. Be careful if you have a low thyroid, high blood pressure or heart disease because almost all of these drugs have side effects related to these conditions. You need to be prescribed the “right” diet pill for you.
OTC Weight Loss Drugs/Supplements NOT Effective
Generally speaking, over the counter weight loss drugs are probably safe, but there are big questions about how effective they really are. There can still be side effects, though. Read the label and any enclosed documentation carefully. You need to see know the proper way of taking it, as well as what the potential side effects are. You will usually see a list of common side effects, and a list of side effects that are more serious and may require medical attention. Just because you can find these pills in the aisle at the drugstore does not mean they are safe, and it certainly does not mean that they are effective.

The Only Safe and Proven Diet Pills:
The only safe and effective weight loss pills in the U.S. are controlled prescription drugs,which include phentermine, diethylpropion and phendimetrazine as well as Qsymia, Belviq and Contrave.

Phentermine –Diethylpropion- Tenuate®
First approved as an appetite suppressant in 1959, Phentermine is sold under a variety of brand names including Ionamin® and Adipex-P® as well as under its generic name. Phentermine and its cousins Phendimetrazine and Diethylpropion are all sympathomimetic amines, which are similar to an amphetamine. They are also known as an “anorectic” or “anorexigenic” drugs. They stimulate the central nervous system (nerves and brain), which raises your heart rate and blood pressure as it suppresses your appetite. These drugs still play a role in weight loss and have been taken by millions of people over the past 45 years. When combined with the HCG diet in very low doses they further reduce hunger and cravings. Often they are used for a few weeks help make the transition to the 800 calorie diet.
need to be used with caution in people with high blood pressure. They should not be used either in people who have heart disease, who have had strokes, or other serious brain or cardiac problems. These drugs are most effective when used in low doses and titrated slowly to avoid side effects and the development of tolerance. Some physicians alternate Phentermine with Phendimetrazine in order to avoid tolerance. Of all of the drugs in this group, Diethylpropion has the least side effects and the least problems with tolerance. Related to bupropion (Wellbutrin®, Zyban®) it not only reduces appetite but helps many people with compulsive eating.
