Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These are obsolete and are no longer recommended for weight loss. Its better to avoid it to stay safe and healthy.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
