Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

I'm generally not a fan of diet pills-- the best solution to weight gain is a modest change in your diet and exercise patterns. Hard work for many, but this is sustainable, low cost and low risk (ie., no drug-drug interactions).

Since there are many different diet pills (and I don't proactively recommend any), I'd suggest talking to your pharmacist and your doctor about your concerns and any possible negative drug interactions.

Be well, BY

PEP with no side effects is worrying me! (+donate question)
