FDA-Approved Weight Loss Medications
Medications can help to block hunger and food cravings, help reduce binge-eating tendencies, or help control meal and portion sizes. FDA-approved medications have been proven in clinical trials to improve the chances of weight loss success.
Medications don’t take the place of making smart food decisions or getting exercise. That's why a comprehensive program of lifestyle improvement is so important for your success.
Successful use of a medication often causes 5 to 15 percent body weight loss. That's not as much as bariatric surgery, but even a 5 percent weight loss can cause meaningful health benefits. Learn more about the benefits of weight loss.
