The Danger Side Of Weight Loss Pills
Using unprescribed weight loss pills seems the easiest option when it comes to losing weight. What is generally not advertised, however, is the massive damage that the side effects can cause.
According to a recent clinical survey, Amphetamine slimming weight loss pills were not as fantastic as first thought. It turned out that as women who were consuming them became addicted to it, definitely not the most pleasant of side-effects.
Even the sale of appetite suppressants (e.g. dexfenfluramine) have been stopped due to long-term ailments including heart disease. Today people prefer to pop slimming and weight loss pills that are available freely in the market for the clinically-obese people. Two of the most famous being Xenical and Reductil.
Xenical. Xenical basically works on the basis of a chemical that prevents the absorption of the fat that you have swallowed. Side effects include diarrhea, wind, stomach ache, headache, tiredness, irregular periods and anxiety. Now are they acceptable as a part of your weight loss plan?
Reductil is another appetite suppressant that has side-effects which includes heart palpitations, raised blood pressure, constipation, nausea, insomnia, and anxiety. Definitely not my cup of tea for sure!
There are also several clinically proven slimming and weight loss pills in the market, but people often find them less effective. Two licensed slimming drugs, Orlistat, which is available only by prescription, and Celevac, are sold over the counter.
Also known as Xenicol, Orlistat prevents fat from being absorbed into the blood stream. The drug has been designed to dump fat in the bowels instead. The drug is non-addictive and should be used over three months in conjunction with a fat-reduced diet.
Similarly, Celevac has methylcellulose as its active ingredient. It is claimed to reduce a person’s intake of food by producing a feeling of fullness, thereby reducing the urge to eat more.
Yet another drug, Sibutramine, works by leaving patients feeling full if they eat only a fraction of their normal intake. It increases the feeling of fullness rather than suppressing the appetite like amphetamine-based slimming pills. It also speeds up the metabolic rate. For those who don’t know already, a faster metabolic rate is the best possible way to lose weight as the fat in the body gets burned faster.
Be careful, though, as some appetite suppressants like phentermine are addictive drugs similar to amphetamine. It increases the heart palpitations and high blood pressure and could cause damage to your heart valves. Other side-effects include restlessness, headaches, constipation and even hair loss.
The Slimming drug amfepramone (Tenuate Dospan, Diethylpropion) is also said to cause heart damage. Slimming drugs dexfenfluramine and fenfluramine, also known as Adifax and Ponderax, are included in the list of banned, harmful drugs.
These drugs have been linked to side-effects including hallucinations and palpitations. The drugs may also cause primary pulmonary hypertension, a rare form of high blood pressure which can lead to heart failure.
Think twice, thrice, maybe ten times before you go in for weight loss pills that cause more damage than it is worth.
