They have two major disadvantages. Firstly the side effects can be unacceptable. And secondly once you stop taking them you just end up regaining the weight you lost. It's a stupid way to loose weight (which isn't that intelligent a goal either...).

Basil has it right. They're not really good in the long run, and would make you put the weight back on after. And they can be really dangerous. I would definitely say not to take them.

I don't really see the point in this thread as you already know you shouldn't take them and you've said countless times in other threads that you were trying to get better.

But, as said above...any weight will just be gained back and they have some nasty side effects. All those special K diets as well aren't good for you either, again..you gain the weight back. So, the best and only way to really lose weight is to do it by a good diet and a little physical activity.

How would diet pills make you eat more? A common side-effect is that they make you feel sick whenever you eat. They're designed to make you lose weight, not gain it.

They're diet pills, not anti-anxiety pills. One of the side effects is high blood pressure, so they're likely to do the opposite...

No need to get upset, you asked if you should take them or not. It seems like an obvious answer, but I guess it wasn't. You shouldn't take them because it could endanger your health further. If you really have issues with anxiety, maybe you should talk to a therapist about it to see if meds would help your anxiety.

Since your question (about whether or not to use diet pills) has been answered, and you have made the great decision to not use them, I am going to close this thread. If you want to talk about other things related to your eating disorder, please do so in another thread that you currently have open (so that we keep each topic separate). Thanks!
