diet pills?

hello this is prudent, do diet pills really work? and are they safe? what have you used in conjuction with  a diet? do you excercise more? drink more fluids? I did try diet pills once I got so bloated? and I used a diaretic? would like to hear your input, thanks again.

Hi,
My husband & I both have taken perscription Phentermine at different points and have great success w/ it.  My husband at one time even lost 60 pounds.  Of course, you have to drink lots of water & it definitely helps to diet & excercise, but the phentermine gives you the energy & willpower to do such things.  The problem is, you cannot take it forever...so if you don't stick to the lifestyle after you stop taking the pill you will obviously gain at least some of it back!  :(
