Drugs for Obesity
When you are on a strict diet the discomfort of hunger can be minimized by drugs, but these are not to be used when the patient is not a naturally big eater or if he can control his appetite without too much difficulty. Moreover, they must be absorbed long enough before a meal (at least an hour)'to give their anti-hunger action time to develop.
These appetite-reducing "psychamines" are available in pill form .Your doctor will advise you about them. The modern reducers cause far fewer secondary complications (such as insomnia and palpitations) than earlier medicines of the kind.
If you don't feel strong enough to endure dieting by yourself, if you want to "reduce without tears," drugs can help you to put Up with the necessary restrictions cheerfully. These drugs-like many others-may, if taken un interruptedly, prove habit-forming. Your doctor will take advantage of this pause to increase your urinary output by means of diuretic drugs.
