Testimonial, no more ice cream
Ever since I started taking Diet Rx, I don’t have cravings for ice cream whcih has been my downfall over the past few years and the major cause of the extra few pounds around my waist.

Amount of ingredients
Q. I need to know how much 5-htp is in one pill of the Diet Rx. I already take 50 mg 5-HTP every single night and would like to try the Diet Rx but don’t really want to take any more than 50 mg of 5-HTP a day.
A. We can’t give that information since it is a proprietary blend only known to the formulators. The formula is a trade secret. If you do take Diet Rx, you may either not need to take the 5-htp every night or take half the amount you normally take.

Natural appetite suppressant
Q. I am a reporter and was interested in Diet Rx, can you tell me more about this natural diet product?
A. Diet Rx was formulated by Dr. Ray Sahelian, M.D. in order to help those who overeat. Using his vast knowledge of different herbs and nutrients that help with appetite suppression, he formulated a product with a number of such appetite suppressing herbs that often work within hours or a day or two. Users of Diet Rx feel satisfied eating a portion of their meal and have less of a craving for sweets. Many diet pills cause increased body temperature and rapid heart rate along with restlessness or anxiety. Diet Rx does not have these side effects. We do have users of Diet Rx who you can interview.

Diet Rx Contains the following ingredients
Green Tea Extract – Studies show green tea extract results in an increase fat oxidation and in energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism). Green tea contains various antioxidants, including EGCG. Green tea extract also increases energy. The benefits come from an interaction between caffeine and EGCG.
Hoodia extract has a compound called P57 that works directly in the brain to help reduce appetite. For thousands of years the bushman of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa have been chewing on hoodia to stop hunger, while they were on hunts or journeys, where there was little of no food available to them.
Glucomannan konjac extract helps to satiate and provides good management of blood lipid and carbohydrate status along with providing fiber for optimal bowel movements.
Ginger root has been recognized for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. Ginger is added to herbal formulas to help relieve nausea and gastrointestinal side effects. Studies in rodents show ginger is involved in maintaining healthy levels of blood sugar and cholesterol.
Cinnamon root helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Garcinia Cambogia Citrimax – Hydroxycitric acid is derived from the Malabar tamarind tropical fruit (Garcinia cambogia) native to India. Hydroxycitric acid has been found to inhibit mitochondrial citrate lyase, leading to decreased acetyl coenzyme A production and decreased fatty acid synthesis.
Bitter melon helps with blood sugar control and increases lipid oxidation, or fat burning.
Apple Cider vinegar is obtained from the fermentation of apple juice which leads to acetic acid.
Spirulina is green blue algae that is considered a superfood with a high protein content. Spirulina has antioxidants,
Apple pectin is a healthy fiber that helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Choline is a nutrient that converts into acetylcholine. Choline increases the mobilization of fatty acids. Choline is needed for efficient fat metabolism.
Inositol combines with choline to assist in fat metabolism.
Carnitine is a main ingredient in many diet pills and supplements. L-carnitine is found in an enzyme complex (carnitine acyltransferase I, carnitine translocase, and carnitine acyltransferase II) that helps transport long-chain fatty acids across into the mitochondria where fatty acids can be metabolized efficiently.
Pomegranate is full of antioxidants that helps reduce damage to the inner lining of blood vessels.
Psyllium is a fiber which absorbs water within the gut, causing increased satiety and lower caloric intake. Psyllium is also helpful in keeping healthy blood sugar and lipid levels.
Cayenne has capsaicin helps regulate blood sugar levels by affecting the breakdown of carbohydrates after a meal.
Fenugreek helps with blood sugar control and reduces insulin resistance.
Guggul can help a sluggish thyroid gland and help the body to burn calories more efficiently. Guggul also helps manage cholesterol levels.
Inulin is from the chicory plant. Inulin is a prebiotic fiber that helps reduce food absorption but improves mineral absorption, including magnesium and calcium.
Grapefruit extract – different grapefruit constituents influence intestinal and liver lipid transport and metabolism.
Banaba extract helps check blood sugar and insulin levels. Fluctuations in blood sugar and insulin are related to appetite and food cravings, particularly for carbohydrates.
Alpha lipoic acid is one of the most powerful antioxidants
Acetylcarnitine helps maintain attention and focus so you can think clearer
5-HTP converts into serotonin so you can have more will power and be less impulsive in your food choices.
Chromium picolinate is a trace mineral that helps reduce sugar cravings and regulates appetite by stabilizing blood sugar levels.


Amounts of the ingredients in this herbal weight loss pill
Q. Please advise the amounts of each ingredient in Diet Rx.
A. Diet Rx is a proprietary blend formulated by Dr. Ray Sahelian, M.D.. Since he is nationally and internationally recognized as an expert formulator, many companies try to copy his formulas. Therefore, the dosages are in a form of a proprietary blend. FDA allows companies to make products and not have to list the exact amounts of the herbs since they recognize that revealing the amounts of a successful product can lead to other companies making the same exact product or something quite similar. This is a form of trademark / patent protection. Some individuals may not buy a supplement since they want to know the exact amounts of the ingredients. We understand. However, we prefer to lose a few sales rather than have another company, particularly a big corporation with a large advertising budget, copy this successful formula and then do a huge marketing campaign. If this happens Dr. Sahelian would be quite disheartened.

What it does not have, all ingredients are legal
Diet Rx has no added caffeine, ephedra or ephedrine alkaloids, synephrine, guarana, hormones, prescription medications, or stimulating amino acids. Users do not feel jittery and restless. Rather, many people report feeling more balanced with a more focused mind.Caffeine has not been added to Diet Rx although green tea extract has small amounts of natural caffeine. Caffeine use may lead to anxiety, irritability, nervousness and sleep disorders for some users.  However, most people who like the effects of caffeine, normally drink a cup or two of coffee a day which provides 100 to 200 mg of caffeine. Those who drink two or more cups of coffee may wish to take one less capsule of Diet Rx. For instance, if four capsules of Diet Rx normally works for you, take 3 capsules if you plan to drink 2 or more cups.

Blood pressure lowering
If you eat less, whether through sheer will power or through the aid of an appetite suppressant, it is possible that cholesterol levels would not rise as high and blood pressure may not rise as much.

Q. Would Diet Rx product be safe if I am on blood pressure medication?
A. It is not easy to answer such questions since it depends on the dosage of your medication, the type of blood pressure medication you are taking, your overall health, other medical conditions, age, sex, etc. If your doctor approves you can begin with one capsule a day.

Cholesterol levels
If you eat less, whether through sheer will power or through the aid of an appetite suppressant, it is possible that cholesterol levels would not rise as high and your dosage of stating drugs may need to be reduced.

Diabetes, high blood sugar
Q. I have diabetes type two. If I eat less will I need to reduce my dosage of insulin or blood sugar lowering medicines if I take a pharmaceutical or natural diet pill that reduces appetite?
A. If you eat less there is a good chance your blood sugar will not rise as much. Therefore, if you are on insulin or taking prescription medicines or natural supplements that lower blood sugar, you dosage may need to be adjusted. If you have diabetes, you should consult with your doctor before taking any diet pills. Your doctor may advise you to start with a low dose of these pills while you monitor your blood sugar. You may then gradually increase the dosage of the diet pills while you keep a close eye on your blood sugar level.

Kidney disease
Q. Can you tell me if there has been any side effect on the kidneys by taking Diet Rx? I currently have Kidney Disease and I am very careful about what over the counter meds I take.
A. We are not aware of any studies that have shown kidney damage from using Diet Rx or the ingredients in Diet Rx. However, research in the area of supplements and kidney disease is limited and we can’t make absolute statements on this topic. It may be wise to have your doctor’s approval and only use one capsule a day for a while and monitor your blood and urine studies after a few weeks to determine if there has been any positive or negative effect. We wish you well.

Thyroid hormone and gland, hyperthyroid, hypothyroid thyroid medications
Q. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was wondering if taking Diet Rx would be bad in combination with my Synthroid medication.. which isn’t making me feel better or getting rid of my symptoms, ie. extreme tiredness, weight gain, headaches, moodiness, etc. but I don’t want to make matters worse either. I am depressed because the weight keeps coming and Diet Rx product seems to have good ingredients.
A. We have not had any side effects reported to us regarding the use of Diet Rx with Synthroid. If your doctor approves, you can start with one capsule a day and then base further dosage changes on your response.

Q. I recently had entire thyroid taken out. Feel great and I am on Synthroid 125 mcg and using a meal replacement once a day. I want to start taking Diet Rx. Is this ok to do? I am getting ready to start training for half marathon (never have done this before and I am 46).
A. If your doctor approves you can begin with 2 capsules a day rather than 4.

Q. Can one use the  Diet Rx diet pill with hypo thyroid medication such as Armour thyroid?
A. Each person may respond differently, but if your doctor approves you can start with one capsule with breakfast and then lower or increase the dosage based on your response. To make the Diet Rx be more potent, you can take it on an empty stomach before breakfast. To make it less potent, open a capsule and take 3/4 of the contents. It is difficult to predict how any one person will respond to what dosage.

Diet Rx testimonials
Q. I have been taking Diet Rx for one week now. I have noticed that I do not feel hungry. The biggest difference that I noticed though is no night time snacking. I never go to bed before 2:00am and usually start my evening snacking around 10:00pm I must clarify that what I call a “snack” other people call a meal. I am not fond of sweets so therefore my “snack” is something meaty (pork chop, chicken breast or steak) or a sandwich or two with all the trimmings. I have not even thought about having something to eat in the evenings since starting Diet Rx. I tried a diet pill once before in my life but did not like it because it gave me an awful nervous feeling and fast heart beat. I don’t feel anything like that with this diet product. In one week I lost three pounds.

Q. I work in an office where they have donuts within easy reach. Ever since I started taking Diet Rx, I noticed that I am not reaching for the donuts. I look at them but they don’t seem to hold much interest for me.

Q. My 60 year old secretary comes into work today looking fabulous and says that since she’s been taking Diet Rx she has lost eight lbs in about 2 weeks. She is a real testament because not everything works on her. She says that she hasn’t really been hungry during these two weeks and no urges for sweets either. A year ago her doctor put her on a prescription diet pill and after six months there was no change in her weight.

I am writing to say thank you so much for your insights, free products and sample products that you offer us to try out before purchasing it. I ordered Diet Rx last week and within hours of taking one pill I had no desire whatsoever to eat any sweets. I felt calmer as well. I went grocery shopping and out of habit I purchased some cookies and they actually sat in the cabinet for 2 whole days. This is truly a miracle for me!!! I usually devour the whole bag of cookies in one or two days. I did eat a few cookies on the third day, but to my surprise I didn’t eat the whole row. This product is TRULY AMAZING!!! I will continue to use this product. I’m looking forward to trying out Eyesight Rx product next!

Products formulated by Dr. Sahelian with careful research over several years
Joint Power Rx for joint health in aging adults
Mind Power Rx with several potent mind enhancing nutrients including acetylcarnitine, for better brain function.
Q. I wonder if I can take the Mind Power Rx and the Diet Rx capsule on the same day, Or do you recommend to not do that?
A. We strongly suggest first learning how each one supplement formula works by itself for at least a period of 2 weeks. Thereafter you can discuss with your doctor whether in your particular medical condition you can take both supplement formula products.

Multi-Vit Rx for daily multivitamin and mineral supplement
Passion Rx as an excellent erection pill product that has a number of important ingredients including Tribulus extract
Prostate Power Rx for prostate health

Interactions with prescription drugs, antidepressants
Q. Can you tell me how it works and can you take Diet Rx with Cymbalta.
A. Diet Rx has several ingredients that work together to suppress appetite so you eat less. We have not tested it with Cymbalta, but if your doctor approves you can start with one capsule a day of Diet Rx. If you need to increase to two capsules, your doctor may suggest reducing your Cymbalta dosage by a quarter or half. Each person is different on how they respond to medicines and herbs and we can just give general information that you can discuss with your doctor for the best option. Many people report Diet Rx helps with mood balance and energy.

High cholesterol or triglycerides
Q. I am in desperation, I am 5’2″ 155lbs, post menopausal and hypothyroid. My triglycerides have increased despite diet changes and exercise and triglyceride medication. I was flabbergasted that with meds my triglycerides increased 70 in 4 months. My doctor wants me to lose weight, I think I am doing all I know. Will Diet Rx have any interactions with my triglyceride and thyroid meds?  also I take gingko biloba, lecithin, vitamin E and B complex regularly.
A. We suggest you ask your doctor to read the page on the website regarding Diet Rx and make a recommendation for you. It would be best, at least initially, to take this appetite suppressant without mixing it with other supplements and the tricylceride medication, and also to start with one capsule a day initially and then if no problems increase to another capsule before lunch and eventually if no problems then then both capsules can be taken together before breakfast. Your doctor would need to make the final decision and monitor you.

Acid reflux, stomach issues
Q. After reading through the ingredients in this Diet Rx product, I have a question: Have there been any reports of gastrointestinal discomfort / acid reflux issues in people taking Diet Rx on an empty stomach? I have acid reflux (I’m currently taking Protonix to manage it), and often have a reaction to cinnamon and citric acid. Any insight you can provide is appreciated!
A. The most common side effect with the use of two capsules of Diet Rx taken at the same time is energy, natural energy that makes you want to take a walk. Otherwise, no significant gastrointestinal side effects have been reported to us after 4 months on the market. If you wish, you could take one capsule of Diet Rx with food your very first time, if no problems then one capsule on an empty stomach, and proceed further based on your response.

Coumadin, warfarin, blood thinners
Q. I currently take Coumadin due to a mechanical heart valve. Will Diet Rx interact with Coumadin?
A. This is a good question. We have not had feedback from users of Diet Rx who take Coumadin or warfarin to see if the addition of Diet Rx alters INR levels. If your doctor approves, you can take only one capsule a day of Diet Rx rather than 2 or 3 a day, and after a couple of weeks have a blood test to see if any changes have occurred. Do let us know so we can inform others regarding the influence of Diet Rx, if any, on INR in those taking warfarin.

Appetite control
Q. I have a question regarding Diet Rx product: I am not trying to lose weight currently and am at a good, healthy weight for me. However, I have struggled with weight gain, loss and maintenance all my life. I am 54 years old, eat a whole foods diet, exercise regularly, but I still have to manage my appetite on a constant basis. It is particularly challenging when we travel for vacation or socialize. Those times make me feel very stressed, because I am not in control of the foods that are available, how they are prepared, etc. I would to love to not feel like I am having to struggle so much or feel so anxious when I am not the one preparing food. I would like to be able to just choose food and eat what my body needs. At home, I do fine, but this struggle and tension take away the joy of vacationing and socializing, and I often end up feeling tired of “holding back” so much, so I just give in, eat far too much, and feel physically wrecked the next day. Since I am not trying to lose weight, do you think your Diet Rx is still something I could use for vacations and for big social events (like holidays, barbeques, etc) to take down some of the stress and angst?
A. Diet Rx can be used anytime to help one control their appetite, it works great for this purpose. Two capsule can help control appetite within the same day while one capsule a day takes 3 or 4 days to start working.

Q. I am a 45 year old woman that I want to loose only 16 lbs to get back to my usual and normal weight. I am not happy with myself the way I look right now and it has been extremely hard for me to now loose this pounds whereas it used to be very easy even three years ago. I find myself being upset and resistant to buy a bigger size dress because that is not the answer to be happy. Will this herbal diet pill truly help me lose only those and 16lbs in order to get back to my normal weight? Will I lose stomach fat that I have accumulated?
A. The majority of Diet Rx users find that their appetite is less when they take these diet pills and they eat less. We cannot promise results since the FDA does not allow sellers of diet pill products to make claims that a person will lose weight. Most people notice a definite appetite control.

Q.  I have gained 80 lbs. in the last 4 years. Last September I found out I am hypoglycemic which contributed to the weight gain. Since then I have lost 22 lbs. with proper diet. Of course for me the weight can’t come off fast enough, my question is will Diet Rx help me? I am eating well, proteins, poultry, lean meats, shell fish etc.. ( yes I cheat, but not daily or even weekly) With moderate exercise. Is there any other thing, or herbs that will help?
A. Most people who take Diet Rx notice appetite suppression. It is impossible for us to know if any one person will benefit from any supplement since each person is unique.

Timing, before meals
Q. We purchased Diet Rx for my husband. He is an anesthesiologist with a demanding schedule. Here is our dilemma and question: He gets up at 5:30am to be able to quickly shower, eat breakfast, and leave home on time. He only has about 15 minutes between waking up and eating breakfast, and we can’t see getting up earlier than 5:30am. just for him to wait to eat. When he is at the hospital for work, he rarely gets a break, but he might be able to manage a quick one to take his Diet Rx. Your directions say to take Diet Rx at least a half hour before breakfast or lunch. It would help us a ton, if you could advise us in the other direction—-i.e., how long AFTER breakfast or lunch he should wait to take his Diet Rx?
A. Diet Rx can be taken as soon as he gets up, even if it is 15 minutes before breakfast. Diet Rx can also be taken at least two hours after a meal. You can experiment to see if one, two, or three capsules works best.

Heart problems, heart medications
Q. I am taking Amiodarone every other day for atrial fibrillation. The label warns against having any grapefruit products while taking this medication. I am interested in Diet Rx and I see it contains grapefruit extract. Does this mean I should avoid using Diet Rx?
A. The amount of grapefruit extract in Diet Rx is minimal, however, there are a couple of dozen ingredients in Diet Rx and those with cardiac rhythm abnormalities should be cautious using supplements since some of them could stimulate cardiac muscle tissue or the nodes. The final decision rests with your doctor. See atrial fibrillation for more information.

Side effects
Q. I just took my first dose of Diet Rx and immediately felt an elevation and stabilization in mood and feel much less-hungry. Around an hour later, I noticed that my body was retaining fluid (in the legs and stomach area). It this from the Diet Rx? I would really appreciate your response as I really love this product and would like to continue it.
A. This is the first we have heard of fluid retention as a result of Diet Rx use, we doubt the supplement was the cause.


Drug testing concern
Q. I work for a company that drug tests its employees randomly every month. I read the info & understand this is an “all natural” product; however I need to know if this product will flag a drug test? Will it flag any key elevations?
A. We have no reason to believe the use of Diet Rx would cause a positive test on a random drug test since there are no drugs in Diet Rx.
