Obesity is a serious problem in the United States, and various methods and strategies for losing excess weight have become more and more popular. In addition to the multitude of diet and exercise programs available to consumers, new drugs that promote weight loss are constantly being developed and marketed. While some of these drugs can contribute to healthy weight loss, there are many risks involved in their use and abuse. "Weight-Loss Drugs" takes a look at these drugs, and explains that though there is no 'magic pill' that melts the pounds away, some drugs have proven effective in supporting a sensible weight-loss plan.Likewise, other drugs have proven to be ineffective, dangerous, or even deadly. Chapters include: Fat and Weight Loss; Appetite Suppressants; Fen-Phen and Redux - The Making and Unmaking of Drugs; Stimulants; Going Off-Label for Weight Loss. May is also the author of "Botox[registered] and Other Cosmetic Drugs in Chelsea House's Drugs: The Straight Facts" series.
