Hello from JA

I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine and I can help you with this and any follow up questions. I cover a lot of ground and might give you an answer or ask for information, but use reply to communicate with me for questions or added details.

You specifically asked about a pill that you don't need a prescription for.


In fact orlistat, a weight loss pill, has both prescription and non-prescription [over the counter forms].

If you are on a good plan from your doctor you can add this.

Orlistat does not have a lot of the negative, or even potentially addicting side effect of many of the prescription medicines.

I am an expert on nutritional therapies and diet...so get back to me with questions.

 

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.

Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
