Diet Pills: If It Seems Too Good To Be True, It Probably Is

We’ve all seen the advertising – lose weight in a manner of weeks by just taking pills or supplements.  Weight loss pills and supplements are multi-million dollar industries, so many of us have gotten sucked into these campaigns in the hope they may work.  But, as the addage goes, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.  Most over the counter diet pills do not work, and the Federal Trade Commission even launched a campaign to stop these manufacturers from making “bogus claims.”

Leptopril is an example of a diet product that promises weight loss within a manner of weeks. In its advertising, Leptopril claims that it will cause weight loss by keeping excess sugar out of the blood and preventing fat formation.  Many bloggers have denounced these claims.  See here, here, and hereKhorrami, Pollard & Abir, LLP filed suit against the makers of Leptopril on behalf of a consumer who took the product but did not experience any weight loss.
