Any safe weight loss pills?

Patient

Q: Are there any safe over the counter weight loss pills? I know that I'm not extremely overweight, im 19 years old , 5'4 and 162 pounds. But for about the last three years I have had this stomach that, no matter how much I work out, will not go away. I played varsity sports all through high school, so I have always been VERY active. Over the last couple months though, my weight has increased, as I started college in September and I can see that freshman 15. I work out on a regular basis and watch my eating but I can not loose those extra fifteen or twenty pounds . I just want to be comfortable and I'm no where near that.
