8 Dangers of Weight Loss Pills We Shouldn’t Ignore

5. Diarrhea

Some fat-burner pills (such as CLA-1000) can indeed cause diarrhea. It’s one of the many side effects that these so-called diet pills have. And having diarrhea for a prolonged period of time can be very dangerous because all the water you lose causes dehydration and the loss of electrolytes. If it persists for more than a few days, it’s best to call your doctor.

6. Rectal bleeding

According to this study, some weight loss medications can cause colon ischemia, also known as rectal bleeding. Phentermine is one of those drugs that comes with this side effect even though it’s approved for short-term use to lose weight. It’s important not to take more than the recommended dosage and not to extend the period of time you take it.

7. Increased heart rate

Diet pills have an amphetamine-like effect that will increase your heart rate and according to Danny Lee-Frost, the head of MHRA, if you have heart problems you don’t know about, diet pills will reveal them to you.

8. Headache

Headaches are also a side effect of taking diet pills like Iorcaserin and Contrave. If any symptoms appear, it’s best to consult a doctor about it.

It’s imperative we know that diet pills will not give us the weight loss results we want. Instead, we should focus on a healthy diet and exercise. After all, it’s those 2 things plus a bit of willpower that will get you in better shape!
