Don’t know about the weight loss deal, but I used to use all kinds of medications for asthma during my life.
A Doctor friend gave me a sample of something called ADVAIR and it’s like I never had asthma.
On top of that, eventually instead of using it twice a day, I now only use it once in two or three weeks.
So for me, that was a miracle. :-)
Oh my, looks like I need to develop asthma! My nephew was taking a new medicine which treats a type of diabetes. He lost a copious amount of weight on it and felt like a million bucks with energy to spare. I’ve read that some thyroid medications can alter metabolism, for weigth loss also.
One that works almost all the time...chew nicotine gum.
