Weight Loss Medications

In the past 2 years, several new weight loss medications have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of obesity or overweight with a complication (such as high blood pressure or prediabetes). Weight loss medications can be useful for those who have been unsuccessful with diet and exercise alone.

Medications approved for long-term use:

  • Contrave
  • Belviq
  • Qsymia
  • Saxenda
  • Xenical

Medication approved for the treatment of binge eating disorder:

  • Vyvanse

Medications approved for short-term use:

  • Phentermine

In addition to medications specifically approved for weight loss, many other medications have a weight loss effect and may be an option as well.
