If you are finding it difficult to lose weight, there are a number of weight loss treatments available that you can use to make losing weight easier. Weight loss medication usually works in one of two ways: it can either be used to suppress your appetite so that you won't feel the need to overeat, or it can work in your digestive system by preventing your body from absorbing some of the fat from your diet.

Weight loss medication has been proven to be successful in helping many people to lose weight. However, it is not suitable for everyone. Before you decide to take a medication to help you lose weight you should make sure you have considered the following.
Weight loss medication is designed to help people who have a serious weight problem, not people who are just a little overweight. Most medication will only be prescribed to people who have a BMI greater than 30, which classifies you as clinically obese.
In some cases, if you suffer from health-related conditions that are either caused by or related to being overweight or obese, you could be eligible for a prescription weight loss treatment. However, you will still need to have a BMI that is over 27. If your BMI is between 25 and 27, you are only a little overweight and should try to reduce your weight by eating a healthy diet and engaging in regular exercise.
You may be eligible to take
Weight loss medications are usually only prescribed to people who have tried to lose weight through other means. If you have tried to lose weight through dieting and exercise alone, but have not been able to reduce your weight and improve your health, you may be eligible for a prescription for weight loss treatment.
Like any other prescription medication, taking a weight loss medication has a number of precautions and is not suitable for everyone to use. You may not be able to take prescription weight loss medication if you answer yes to any of the following:
|Are you pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant in the near future?|
|Do you currently suffer from an eating disorder?|
|Do you suffer from epilepsy?|
|Do you suffer from diabetes or high cholesterol?|
|Do you have a hereditary problem involving galactose intolerance, lapp lactase deficiency, or glucose-galactose malabsorption?|
