What has weight loss been like for anyone taking metformin and phintermine. My dr put me on both for wieght loss due to pcos

It's true, losing weight the old-fashioned way is always the best way; however, there are a few people to whom that rule doesn't apply. There are people (myself included) who CANNOT reach their ideal weight through normal means, in which case, medication may (and I stress the tentativeness "may" implies) be a way of losing weight if you are unable to lose it own your own. Alternative medicine is also something to consider, but these remedies are even less reliable due to lack of funds and therefore a lack of statistics to prove their effectiveness. Before taking anything, however, I suggest you thoroughly research the side effects, dangers, and customer reviews and ANY treatment before using it (even when it's prescribed by a doctor).
Hope that helps and good luck on your journey to better health :)
