Nothing.  I'm not hungry.  I ate at 8 this morning and haven't been hungry yet.   :shock:

I want some of what yer taking!

Meridia.  It's a prescription appetite suppressant.  Wildly expensive.   :x

They banned it today. Heart attacks.

Sucks.  I have a prescription for Phentermine now that I haven't filled yet.   People that are fat are also at increased risk of heart attack and stroke.  We're all gonna die from something.

Finished my first 200 mile relay (12 person team-31 hrs) today, so I'm eating anything I damn well please.
(Had 2 granola bars, grilled chicken sandwich and pretzel chips during the 18 hours that had my N Georgia legs)

So far:
Greek yogurt w/honey & granola
Bacon Egg & Cheese Panini and Venti Latte
Bowl of beans & rice (at finish)

Planning something with fish and a couple of margaritas tonight. Then sleep. Kinda punchy.

They don't really give any percentages in the article. I don't get it. Weight reduction usually improves heart health - is the drug killing more than half the people taking it?

If doctors are monitoring patient's progress on a new drug, can they not catch any heart issues before they become life threatening? Millions of women take a drug every day which is know to increase risk of stroke, and I don't see anybody clamoring for a ban of all birth control pills. They warn about interactions, possible complications of age, and say "get regular checkups".

When I was on it I had a full panel of blood tests I think every three months, and the doctor would always ask me how I felt, and listen to things going on inside me for any abnormalities.  I didn't really feel any adverse effects from it.  But my thought is as stated previously.  The drug is not meant for people to take it at the highest dose and still go to McDonald's twice a day to try and win Monopoly there.  It's really to help kickstart your metabolism and curb your appetite so that you can see results quicker, and keep a higher level of motivation.  The way it was explained to me, was that it certainly is not meant for long-term therapy.  It's like any other diet aid - to help you learn better behaviors, and eventually you won't need it.  It's usually only prescribed 3 months at a time anyway.
