Weight Loss Medications Q & A

How do weight loss medications work?


Weight loss medications all work a little differently. Some medications curb your appetite by altering chemical and hormonal processes that are known for making you feel hungry. When you don’t feel hungry, you probably won’t eat as much. 


There are also weight loss medications that minimize fat absorption, while others help your body utilize energy from calories more efficiently. Your provider helps you decide which weight loss medication is best for you by going over your diet, how much weight you need to lose, and how much you’re exercising.

Am I a candidate for weight loss medications?


Whether you need to lose 20 pounds or 100 pounds — or more — weight loss medications can jumpstart your journey and set you up for success. You might be a candidate for weight loss medication if you have:


  • Type II diabetes
  • A body mass index (BMI) over 27
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High blood cholesterol
  • A family history of obesity


It’s important to bring all of your current medications with you when visiting Broadway Family Clinic or make a list of your medications and their dosages. This way your provider can ensure that your weight loss drug won’t interact with any of your other prescriptions. 

Which weight loss medication is best?


Since weight loss isn’t a one-size-fits-all journey, there isn’t a single best medication. The best weight loss medication truly depends on your lifestyle and expectations. 


You may also benefit from medications that stabilize your mood and help reduce cravings. In some cases, you might need to try several different weight loss medications or dosages, before finding one that works best for you.
