Medications for weight loss are prescription drugs that help people who have health problems related to overweight or obesity. They work in different ways, such as reducing appetite, blocking fat absorption, or increasing metabolism. They are used to jumpstarting the weight loss process and in the maintenance phase or can be used in the long term in some cases.

Examples of weight loss medications are phentermine, orlistat, naltrexone, and semaglutide (Ozempic and Wegovy). These medications are not a substitute for a healthy diet and physical activity, and they may have side effects or interactions with other drugs. 

Previous starting any of these drugs, it is important to have a medical assessment that will establish if you are a good candidate and which medication would be more suitable for you
