Appetite Suppressants: Anorexics may use various substances to further reduce hunger. These include abuse of prescription or over the counter medications such as stimulants; consumption of high amounts of caffeinated beverages; use of energy drinks (i.e. Monster, 5 Hour Energy, Red Bull); over the counter diet pills; and/or nicotine. Excessive gum chewing is another method patients use to assuage hunger sensations. Gum chewing however, has the paradoxical effect of increasing hunger as well as causing bloating, gas and stomach ache.
