    Unless you are under a qualified doctor's care for using pills to help lose weight, the key for most people is simply eating healthier food/beverage choices, watching portion size, and regular exercise.

    Those three things are quite a challenge for many people, and often take a change in mindset, and lifestyle, to stick with it. Dieting is a billion dollar business for a reason. If the pills and diets actually worked long term, there would be no need for more and more of them. They are a short term fix, for a long term issue.

    Direct answer to your question: Yes, some diet pills can be dangerous.

    Be dumb for a young lady in your situation to take anything without consulting your doctor first. I doubt he sees a need for YOU to do so. I sure don't.

    Kezzy, who wants to take these pills? You? Not a good idea for someone with an eating disorder.

    These are just a few of the threads dealing with your weight:

    Have you talked to your parents or doctor?

    Considering your eating disorder, diet pills would be very dangerous for you.
