Weight Loss Medication Quick Reference Table
There is a variety of prescription weight loss medication approved to treat overweight and obese patients. The key is finding the right medication for you. Your medical history, medical problems, current prescriptions, age, gender, weight loss goals, and blood test results are all factors in making that determination. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to matching a weight loss medication – or a diet plan – to a patient. We always get better results when we consider the individual patient.
Below is a quick reference table for the most commonly prescribed weight loss medication. It includes new drugs like Qsymia and Belviq, and older medications such as phentermine. The information in this table is just a starting point to give you an idea of each drug’s effects.
