These are the top 5 best prescription weight loss medications on the market. These weight loss meds actually work and I’ve personally used them on many patients with success.
I’ve been helping people lose weight for a long time and over the years I’ve been able to test many different weight loss medications. I’ve found that while there are many prescription weight loss medications available, only a handful actually work very well.
In this video, I will walk you through the top 5 best prescription weight loss medications available on the market, which ones I prefer to use, what you can expect while using them, how they work, and more.
Before you jump in, make sure you understand that while prescription weight loss medications can be very effective, you should never just use them by themselves. If you are serious about weight loss you should combine these weight loss medications with other changes such as adjusting your diet, reducing your stress, exercising daily, and balancing your other hormones.
If your plan is to jump on one of these medications and lose a bunch of weight, it’s probably not going to happen!
But these medications can be very effective if used correctly and if combined with a healthy lifestyle.
The top 5 best prescription medications for weight loss include:
Saxenda is FDA approved for weight loss and is probably the single most effective medication on this list.
Invokana and Farxiga are not FDA approved for weight loss but they can help. They work by helping your body eliminate or pee out sugar from your kidneys.
Naltrexone is a part of one FDA approved weight loss medication known as Contrave. Naltrexone is not as effective as the others but it is very safe.
Metformin is commonly used to treat diabetes but it does have some weight loss benefits. Don’t expect much from metformin though because many people are already taking it.
Phentermine helps with weight loss by reducing your appetite and increasing up your metabolism. It only works if it is used correctly, however, so don’t just jump on it without understanding how to use it.
