Have any of you tried diet pills that help you lose extreme amounts of weight is a few months?

Two people I know are currently on a miracle type diet pill called 'The Secret'. They've lost so much weight. Should I try it? I need to lose about 50lbs.

These two have each lost about 40lbs in the past 3 months.

I think it would be ok if I really make a change to eat healthy food while I'm on it. This way I can just continue with the healthy food once I reach my goal weight and stop taking the diet pill.

I would not recommend losing weight quickly.  I did this right before I crashed.  now I suspect that the rapid weight loss led to release of vitamin A from my fat cells and helped to precipitate my IIH.

I'm still new to IIH so I don't know if or how it would affect it but diet pills can be hard on your heart. I know the docs really push weightloss to help us but please do it healthfully Smile slow and steady. Be gentle with yourself <3

I just want to end this as fast as possible and have a normal life ;(. My symptoms fit exactly into the IIH diagnoses. It all started after my first pregnancy when I gained a lot of weight. Something tells me losing weight will get me back to normal.

I completely understand, I immediately started reducing my calories to 1200 when I found out last week. I want my life back, and it's tough to see the scale move so slowly.

Any fluctuation in weight can affect your symptoms, so be careful. My initial neuro-surgeon suggested a paleo diet and I lost weight fast. I have found that processed food, sugars, etc really affect my pain level, so have pretty much cut them out again at this point. That will help you lose weight, depending on your current diet.
