Are weight loss drugs safe?

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Prescribed weight-loss drugs should be used only if one is likely to have health problems caused by weight. One should not use drugs to improve one’s appearance. Prescribed weight-loss drugs, when combined with a healthy diet and regular physical activity, may help some obese adults lose weight. However, before these medications can be widely recommended, more research is needed to determine their long-term safety and effectiveness. Whatever the results, prescription weight-loss drugs should be used only as part of an overall programme that includes long-term changes in the eating and physical activity habits.
