Our expert says:
I do not think it is a good idea for anyone to take over-the-counter slimming pills and potions because they usually contain a variety of potentially harmful ingredients (e.g. synephrine, guarana, caffeine, harsh laxatives and diuretics). This applies even more to patients with stomach or peptic ulcers. Patients with such ulcers are cautioned not to consume large quantities of caffeine and salicylic acid (aspirin) to prevent irritation of the stomach and duodenum. Many of the ingredients in these slimming pills contain both these compounds.
