Oral Weight Loss Medications

Excess body weight can be one of the factors that lead to a number of health concerns, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and heart attack. Losing weight can significantly reduce the risks of these issues. But diet and exercise aren’t your only options when it comes to weight loss.

In combination with diet and exercise, and a healthy lifestyle, prescription medications for weight loss may be a chronic weight management option to aid in your weight-loss efforts. Weight loss medications work in different ways to address weight gain. Learn more about the weight management medications we offer and decide which sounds right for you.

Contrave is believed to work on two areas of the brain- your hunger center to help reduce hunger and the reward system to help control cravings—that can hinder weight loss.
