Anti-Obesity Drugs

Anti-obesity drugs include all pharmacological treatments which reduce or control weight with minimal side effects. These drugs are intended to alter one of the fundamental processes of the human body and are medically prescribed only in cases of morbid obesity, where weight loss is life-saving. Anti-Obesity medication is implemented for people having body weight 20% more than their normal weight. 

The individuals having BMI greater than 40 are considered to be at the higher risks of health related issues. For them, anti-obesity medication is a must. Anti-obesity drugs operate through suppression of appetite. Three major groups of drugs are used to manage obesity; centrally acting medications that impair dietary intake, medications that act peripherally to impair dietary absorption, medications that increase energy expenditure.
