Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. Once you lose weight the body adjusts its metabolism so that additional weight loss is much harder. It would be prudent to see your doctor who prescribed the medications you take. Wish you good health!
