In brief: Possibly

A BMI (body mass index) of 30 or greater, in the obesity range, is often the standard doctors and pharmacy plans use to guide prescription therapy.
There are a few drugs available now..orlistat, orcaserin, phentermine..which work through different mechanisms. They are not especially effective and have side effects. Better to focus on eating less/exercising more. Good wishes:)
