Anti-Obesity Drugs

Anti-obesity medication and weight loss drugs are pharmacological agents which reduce or control weight. These drugs alter one of the fundamental processes of the human body or weight regulation by altering either appetite or absorption of calories. The treatment modalities for overweight and obese individuals remain dieting and physical exercise. Because the human body uses various chemicals and hormones to protect its stores of fat reaction probably useful to our ancestors when food was scarce in the past, there has not yet been found a 'silver bullet', or a way to completely circumvent this natural habit of protecting excess food stores. The ideal anti-obesity drug would produce sustained weight loss with minimal side effects. The mechanisms that regulate energy balance have substantial built-in redundancy, overlap considerably with other physiological functions, and are influenced by social, hedonic and psychological factors that limit the effectiveness of pharmacological interventions.
