Diet Pills After Weight Loss Surgery

Patient: Is it safe to take diet pills after weight loss surgery?

 

 

Doctor: Gastric Bypass surgery is reserved for persons who are severely obese. It is a very effective method of weight loss. It should not be necessary to take diet pills after such a procedure. Because of the potential harmful side effects it is ill-advised to combine gastric bypass surgery with diet pills.
