In brief: Appetite meds
If you can't lose weight and have tried exercise you might be a candidate for a trial of appetite suppressants.
They work especially well for those who need to lose about 20-50 pounds. Seek out knowledgeable experienced physicians regarding the use of these meds. Your success depends on the physician and program.

In brief: Not able to lose
If you have been trying to lose weight--genuinely-- have been examined by a supportive physician, any medical, physical problems have been addressed and treated.
Definitely, Plan B could be a trial of appetite suppressants prescibed by a knowledgable sympathetic weight management specialist. Plan c is bariatric surgery.

In brief: Appetite suppressant
Appetite suppressants can be an effective treatment for severe obesity leading to 5-10% weight loss, but most insurance plans will not pay for these medications.
They are clinically indicated in certain disease states like obesity with diabetes or morbid obesity. They are most useful for initiating weight loss while a long-term change in eating and exercise is undertaken.
