I need serious help to lose weight. Is adderall an option

Customer Question

I need serious help to lose weight. Is adderall an option privately
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Yes and was told they don't prescribe it anymore. I am on antidepressants. I also suffer from fatigue and can sleep all the time.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Only that I am extremely obese as well as depressed. I have tried every diet ever all my life and feel desperate for something. I know its unlikely a long term solution but it's the only thing I haven't tried. Thank you
JA: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?
Customer: Yes, I was having counselling but that stopped because of covid 19. I am also recovering from this as my partner has been tested positive and I have had the same symptoms. I am now recovered

Drugs won't work...they are not safe and the weight just comes back on....

So. What to do?

I strongly recommend Weight Watchers. They have a program that takes the weight of and does an excellent job of keeping it off:
