It is not surprising that people of South Africa spend millions of ZAR (South African Rand) for obesity treatment every year. Obese South Africans can be prescribed anti-obesity drugs, many of which suppress appetite and help reducing the caloric value of the diet by several times.
Choosing diet pills, many obese people note both their effectiveness and price. The truth is that about 50% of South Africans live below poverty line. Therefore, in most cases, projected costs predetermine the choice diet pills for anti-obesity therapy.
When calculating the costs for obesity treatment, one should first find out the price of one diet pill.
To predict maximum costs for obesity treatment, one should compare the price of various diet pills, containing maximal dose of active ingredient.
For instance, in SA pharmacies you may find diet pills Orlistat 60mg and 120mg, as well as diet pills Phentermine 15mg and 30mg.
To make an objective assessment of costs for obesity treatment, one should compare the cost of one Phentermine 30mg pill and one Orlistat 120mg pill (dosage of active ingredients is always indicated in mg). Having found out the cost of one diet pill, man should check out how many times a day he should take these pills.
Using this simple formula one can easily count approximate costs for obesity treatment. Once you know the cost of one diet pill and maximum dosing frequency for diet pills, you can calculate your costs for a short-term or long-term anti-obesity therapy by yourself.

Phentermine is one of the cheapest weight loss drugs in South Africa. In SA pharmacies, this drug is available on sale under Duromine trade name. In the USA, this drug is mostly known under Adipex trade name.
In some online pharmacies, Adipex price is lower than the price of Duromine in SA pharmacies. Hence, when you buy Adipex online, you can offset your costs for anti-obesity therapy.
