The brokaide with caffeine is what someone has mentioned elsewhere. I don't think he mentioned the aspirin.
Larry Hobbs does research for bariatric medical doctors (obesity doctors) on medication. The ECA (Ephedrine/Caffeine/Asprin) mix is one of the best formulas their is, as per Hobbs.
It is also still "street legal". Although you are limited on ephedrine purchases.
I hadn't heard of the others. But I'm always curious, so I'm going to read a bit.
Albuterol is a sibling to ephedrine. I doubt you can get you hand on it without a prescription.
I have used albuterol. My wife at the time came down with asthma and was given a prescription albuterol by a general practitioner medical doctor.
She went specialist. He prescribed another medication for her.
I then ripped off her albuterol and used it. So, I have some "hands on experience" with it.
I doubt the many of those posting have much if any "hand on experience" with this stuff. Which means I can give some some first hand experience with some of this stuff.
T3 meds are thyroid medications, like cytomel. I tried that but never got anything out of it.
However, it worked well for a friend of mine.
T3 meds require a prescription. And with any thyroid medication either you need to know what your doing or you need to have someone advising you who does know.
As Ironman stated, "that is for experience folks"...
I agree with the low carb approach. I lost weight with the Metabolic Diet. Low carbs for 5-6 days and the carb load for 1-2 two days.
A few weeks ago, I had some dental work done. I had to have a tooth pulled.
The dentist told me no oily foods for 3 days. I have yet to understand that.
I'd thought about trying the Sillman "Quick Weight Loss" Diet to drop a few more pounds. Stillman is low car and low fat. So, I did Stillman for about 6 days.
I ended up dropping about 3 lbs and have kept the weight off. Something for you to consider.
Since I actually managed to lose weight, my friends always ask me what worked for me. (I'm never sure what worked for me can work for them for various reasons. One is just won't lift weights and won't really push themselves exercising, and don't want to spend time. But the other is, a few may actually have slower restingmetabolism or poor glucose control, and mine are both fine. )
We are more alike than not alike. That why medications work for the majority of the populations...as does training, diet, etc.
Thus, more than likely what works for you will work for someone else.
If we were all that different, a new meidication would need to be invented for each person when they became sick...same thing with training, diet, etc.
Anyway, I'm not planning to take these things. I'm happy with my weight loss. At 133lb, 5'4", some people might think I need to lose weight, but I don't.
I was able to zip my size 4 jeans and sit comfortably. So, I think I'm ok. :)
Unfortunately, hoosegow (who post here) could NOT fit into his "Lard Ass Jeans" if you sprayed him with WD-40 first.
The good news is no matter how big you are, if you have a picture taken with hoosegow, other quickly comment on how small and thin you are...it worked for me!
