General Information

Prescription weight-loss medication is intended to be used as part of a holistic weight management plan that incorporates long-term changes to diet and increased physical activity. It is indicated for people who are assessed by a Doctor as being obese or overweight with certain risk factors, and who haven't lost enough weight with diet and exercise alone.

A Doctor needs to assess the suitability of medication based on weight, any pre-existing medical conditions or other medication taken that could interact with the medication, therefore no medication should be obtained without a prescription from a doctor, and it should be purchased from a registered pharmacy in order to ensure that it is the authentic product.
