over-the-Counter aPPetite suPPressants

SHARE


Not all appetite suppressants require a prescription. Hundreds of products exist that claim to squelch hunger pangs. Do these products really work? Unlike prescription drugs, over-the- counter supplements do not need FDA approval and therefore do not have to prove that their products really work before they are sold.
If people find that the claims are false once the prod- uct has been sold, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) can intervene for false and misleading advertising. If the product is found to be dangerous, then the FDA can get involved and ban the product.
Purchasing  over-the-counter   appetite  suppressants  can be dangerous. The main danger is that people often take the new drug without consulting a doctor to learn about possible interactions with prescribed medications. Consumers might also erroneously follow the more is better” motto  and take more pills than is recommended. Whereas a prescription refill limit helps prevent such abuse, supplements can be purchased as frequently as the buyer wishes. Two of the most popular supplements are hoodia and 5-HTP, which can be purchased in health food stores and on the Internet. Many people are not concerned with the lack of regulation of these drugs that are derived from plants and therefore natural, unlike prescrip- tion drugs, which are often synthetic. The distinction of a drug being natural because it is derived from a plant is not neces- sarily valid. In fact, some of the most lethal compounds come from plants!
