Every medication has side effects. There are several medications that can suppress your appetite and help you lose weight.
Having said that, you should talk to your doctor about medications that might help you lose weight if that is what you want to do. And the two of you need to decide if the risks outweigh the benefits.
So much depends on your current health status, what other medications you are taking and how much weight you need to lose. There is nothing wrong, immoral or illegal in deciding to use weight loss medications. You will still need to learn how and what to eat, to break the cycle of emotional eating and start/continue an exercise program.
Being overweight and the comorbidities associated with obesity such as diabetes and hypertension are hard on your heart, liver and kidneys. Many medications can damage your heart, liver and kidneys. Each of us has to decide which risk is greater for us.
It's always easy to say that we just need to eat right. If it was as easy to do as it is to say we would all be slim and healthy. We all know what we need to do. Doing it is hard, especially when you feel hungry all of the time.
