No fast weight loss: Medication can be used for weight loss, but meds are not intended for fast weight loss. Recent studies show that most people who lose weight with meds will regain weight, as if they had never taken the meds, once the medication is stopped. You will need to make long term changes in your diet & exercise routine to lose weight AND keep it off. Eat veggies, protein, healthy fats. Avoid sugar!
