Everyone is looking for a quick-fix these days when it comes to losing weight. While eating right and working out does work, all it takes is one walk down the supplement aisle at your pharmacy to see that diet pills are big business.

If found to be safe, it would be the first new prescription diet pill to be approved by the FDA in 13 years.
