    If you are simply looking for a healthy appetitie suppresent and like tea, try baetea detox. It does not aid in weightloss but it does help suppress an appetite mildly.

    Phentermine plus fenfluramine (phen/fen) worked marvelously for me, but fenfluramine was of course withdrawn from the market due to damaging hearts, and that soured me on the whole diet pill thing.

    I didn't learn healthy eating habits when my appetite was artificially suppressed by taking a legal amphetamine-like drug and I gained the weight back when I stopped taking it.

    I know it's a big debate but is there any diet pill that actually work

    Yes, it's easily available but not allowed to talk about it here (or are we b/c it's legal?) ephedrine and dmaa are both legal depending on usage. Clenbuterol is also legal for research purpose. The catch is that even with proper usage, metabolism is only amped up enough for an extra 1/4lb of fat loss PER MONTH and they all come with side effects. Not worth it IMO.

    The only legal one I know of is yohimbe. The pseudo ephedrine pills suppress appetite but I doubt they directly burn any tangible amount of fat. Illegally bought fat burners work, can think of 3 off the top of my head. Nothing touches an effective diet though.

    Well yeah but how long could someone manage on the dose required for that without death or serious illness...2/3 weeks...then negate rebound?

    2-3 weeks would be 14-21lb of fat.
    Though I'd never recommend it for
    Someone who needs to lose that
    Amount of fat

    From personal experience I've never
    Rebounded once

    No because when you stop taking is going to make you hungrier.

    Worthless Dr. Oz junk which does nothing for weight loss except make your wallet lighter.

    Even this one only works short term, and it's just an appetite suppression. IIRC, the lifespan on this pill is 1-2 months. After that, you are support to get off it.

    There is actually a pill that you swallow that has a balloon inside it which swells up and partially fills your stomach so you have to eat less. Once you've lost the weight, they stick a tube down your throat and deflate it. Then your body just processes the balloon and you excrete it. It's the new rage as it's cheaper and less permanent than gastric bypass surgery True story.

    There are also pills you swallow with parasites. Doesn't make it a good idea.
