DISCLAIMER:

 

  • Weight loss varies widely among patients when using medications. Not everybody loses the same amount of weight with one type of medication. Sometimes one medication must be complemented with another medication. 

  • THE ABOVE MEDICATIONS are FDA-approved for BMI >30 (kg/m2) or for BMI >27 (kg/m2) plus co-morbidity and are to be used only in conjunction with lifestyle modifications. 

 

  • THE ABOVE LIST DOES NOT INCLUDE:

​​

Metformin   can help with weight loss but was not approved as a weight-loss drug. A 2020 analysis of studies showed modest (<5%) weight reduction with metformin when used as an adjunct to lifestyle; however, some people may lose more weight than others. 

 

SGLT2 inhibitors (e.g. Dapagliflozin (Farxiga) or Empagliflozin (Jardiance) can aid weight loss but not significantly. 

 

Setmelanotide (Imcivree) prescribed in select patients for genetic conditions associated with obesity.  

Liraglutide (Saxenda) the first GLP-1 agonist approved for treatment of obesity.
