Weight Loss Medications - Overview
Weight loss medications are sometimes used to help people lose weight in conjunction with diet, exercise, and other lifestyle changes.

Please note that controlled medications for weight loss cannot be prescribed through Push Health.
What Are Weight Loss Medications?
Weight loss medications are drugs that are sometimes used to help people lose weight in conjunction with diet and exercise. Prescription weight loss medications work in different ways and should be under the supervision of a qualified medical practitioner. Some weight loss drugs work by suppressing one's appetite. Other weight loss medications work by increasing the body's metabolism. Medications used for obesity treatment vary in effectiveness.
Weight Loss Medications
Weight loss medications are found in various forms, including as weight loss injections and weight loss pills. Some weight loss medications are approved by the FDA for weight loss while others are prescribed off-label. More recently, a class of medications known as GLP-1 receptor agonists have shown promise in helping people lose weight. Examples of non-controlled medications that are sometimes prescribed by medical practitioners include the following:
- Liraglutide (Saxenda, Victoza)
- Naltrexone-Bupropion (Contrave)
- Orlistat (Alli, Xenical)
- Semaglutide (Ozempic, Rybelsus, Wegovy)
- Tirzepatide (Mounjaro)
Weight loss medications can cause side effects when used, including fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and dizziness, although most weight loss pills and injections are tolerated well. Any type of medication, including weight loss injections and other medications used to treat obesity, can cause allergic reactions when used and medications should be avoided if there is a concern or a history of an allergic reaction. Anyone planning to take a weight loss prescription medication should discuss concerns with their medical provider before starting treatment.
Weight Loss Medications Online
One cannot simply buy weight loss medications online as weight loss pills and weight loss injections require a prescription from a medical provider before they can be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. For prescription weight loss drugs, one cannot get weight loss medications OTC and the initial step is consulting a licensed medical provider. People who might need a weight loss medication can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe a weight loss drug - including weight loss injections - when appropriate to do so. Controlled weight loss medications such as phentermine, phendimetrazine, and Qsymia cannot be prescribed through Push Health.
