Appetite Suppressants

Which are the best ones?

How can I get them?

Phenylpropanolamine (Dexatrim, etc) used to work like a charm for me. But you can’t get it any more.

Yes, r1, that is very effective.

You do know Wegovy (Ozempic if you're close with your doc) is an appetite suppressant as well, right? Just get that, you'll feel full for longer, and your fat rolls will start melting away.

My doctor prescribed it, but my insurance company said no.

Phentermine works. I went to a diet doctor for my rx years ago, no insurance coverage.

by Anonymousreply 12March 16, 2023 9:59 PM

Insurance companies generally will not prescribe Wegovy (or similar drugs) for weight loss

A month's supply is over $1,000..

If I lock you in a room for a month an feed you bread and water, you'll lose about a third of your body weight. So the insurance companies have a point

Ok, I’ve lost 10 lbs. been on semaglutide since late January. Took a two week break. Back on it. Plateaued for about 3-4 weeks with no weight loss. But I was eating so little I knew I had to have lost weight and it just wasn’t showing up on the scale. Been using Miralax - it’s a [italic] requirement [/italic]. No lie you’ve got to have it because you’ll get constipated. Also a requirement - Gas X, probiotics, zofran.

I get the worst side effect for about 4 days. Then, for 3 days, they’re not too bad. I’m on 0.5mg.

Also, he and his female friend are eating those noodles out of literal dog dishes. My labrador has one(1) of those just like them.

R13 How so? Bread is very fattening. It's the number one thing any expert will tell you to cut out from your diet, when talking about losing weight.

by Anonymousreply 25March 18, 2023 9:49 PM

Is Phenylpropanolamine still available in Mexico or Canada? It was the best! And worked great at reducing post-nasal drip. I think it got a bum rap because stupid young girls were taking 3 and 4 times the dosage and stroking out. I wouldn't be surprised if the companies that make more expensive prescription diet pills lobbied to have it banned.

NoDoz and black coffee in the AM Salad for lunch, light protein. Protein and veggies for dinner. Work out for an hour. Take one or two Benadryl at 7pm and knock yourself out until the AM. Lots of water.

At my old job, I had a coworker who was a bodybuilder and he let me try some of these speed-like supplements he was taking. (It worked.) I have forgotten the name.

There's something called PhenQ, but it seems like its active ingredient is caffeine.

My advice: drink lots of water. Do a thorough brushing and flossing of teeth in the early evening. No more eating after that.

Bacopa supps. Helps your thyroid as well, and mental acuity and focus. But paradoxically you need to eat something before taking, or risk the Wrath of Kahn.

what fucks me up is I actually have low appetite but slow metabolism. worst combo bc you can eat next to nothing and still have a fat flabby belly and thighs. but also good in that you can afford to eat more and it won't affect much. my sis always nagging me to eat more food so i can actually lose weight and get out of starvation mode but i find it so tiring and uncomfortable to have a full normal adult meal. i like picking at food and eating baby portions.

You can always scan the FDA product recall list for OTC diet pills that contain controlled substances like silbutramine. Then go on eBay (and sometimes even Etsy) and buy them because eBay, and the sellers, don’t give a rats ass about FDA recalls. Or so I’ve heard. I wouldn’t know from experience recently at all. No way.

r4, my insurance company also denied Wegovy, because it's only for weight loss and they won't pay for weight loss anything. Ozempic is basically the same thing but it's for type 2 diabetes, and I was (just barely) pre-diabetic, so insurance paid for it. If your hemoglobin A1c is 5.7% or higher, you should be able to get a prescription for it and get it paid by insurance.

I'm pretty sure Ozempic was created for people like us who need (or want) Wegovy but can't get it, so they formulated a version that's technically for T2 diabetes, making it insurance friendly.

The best appetite suppressant is honestly social anxiety. Or it is for me, anyway. I can only ever eat half the normal amount when I have company over to the house or I have to go out to eat as a social event. Even my usual desire to graze and nibble ebbs away. I just always feel ill and shaky and averse to food when put in that scenario, preferring to sip ice water until I can escape.

And weirdly I have the same with sex, too, I just lose libido around other people, especially if I don't know them or trust them or like then.
