Weigh Loss Drugs

Weigh Loss Drugs

Has anyone used a weight loss medication to help you lose weight? Are there safe ones to use when you also have tachycardia? My psychiatrist said he can prescribe Contrave, but I should follow up with my GP as it can have interactions with my other medications. I need to lose about 20kg.
