FDA approved drugs for losing weight
I had the chance to went online and studied obesity on Medscape. com – The Evolution of Obesity treatment.
Several drugs are already FDA approved, such drugs are, phentermine, diethypropion, orlistat and sibutramine. Off label drugs, are fluoxetine, topiramate, bupropion and metformine.
I learnt that the cardinal behavior of successful weight management are as below,
1 . Self monitoring – record diet intake/ check body weight >1 X per week – vigilant observation
2. Low calorie and low fat diet 1300-1400 kcal / day
3. Daily breakfast
4. Regular physical activity 2500 – 3000 kcal/ week
These are methods, of weight loss and keeping off weights.
