I’m new, not taking any diet pills (yet), but I have some questions about it

I see a lot about phentermine. From what I gather it’s a prescription diet pill that actually works. Is that correct?

My doctor is kind of ‘anti-medication’. I went to him before about weight loss advice thinking (hoping) he would prescribe me some kind of diet pill only to be told he doesn’t like prescribing amphetamines. Period. He prescribed Wellbutrin because one of the side effects is weight loss. It didn’t work. Not even a little.

What I’m looking for is something that will boost my energy ( a lot ) and suppress my appetite without making me feel like I have to throw up all the time. Can anyone advise me on what I can take that will do this (that you know works) and that is OTC due to my doctor’s stance on weight-loss meds?

In the event that I switch doctors, or convince my doctor that I need something like this to be able to lose weight, does insurance cover weight-loss meds? I have Blue Cross First Priority insurance.

Thanks for any info/advice you can give.
