    What is weight loss treatment?

    It’s quite a clever thing. Some weight loss medications stop the fat in the food you eat from being absorbed. The fat comes out in your stool instead, and this allows you to lose weight.

    Other weight loss medications act on the brain rather than your digestive system. They send signals to the brain telling it that you’ve had enough to eat. This stops you from overeating, and promotes weight loss.

    Who is weight loss medication suitable for?

    Weight loss treatments are only suitable for people whose BMI (body mass index) is more than 30, or 28 if you have other risk factors like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.

    You can check your BMI using our healthy weight calculator. The weight loss calculator will show you if you’re a healthy weight, and how much weight you need to lose to achieve a healthy weight if you’re overweight.

    The BMI range that’s considered healthy can vary depending on your ethnicity. People from some ethnic groups are more likely to get type 2 diabetes and other long term illnesses when they have BMI of 23 or more, like Black and South Asian people.

    The calculator provides you with a personal calorie allowance, to allow you to get to a healthy weight in a safe way.

    If your BMI is between 25 and 30, this is categorized as ‘overweight’. A doctor will usually recommend making adjustments to your diet and increasing the amount of exercise you do. They may advise you to record what you eat in a food diary too. This can help them monitor any particular habits that you have (such as putting sugar in your coffee) which you can change under their guidance.

    For exercise, it can be helpful to keep an activity diary, and to wear a pedometer for a week. A pedometer keeps track of the number of steps that you take and allows you to see how active you are.

    Once you have this information, it can help you to make changes to your lifestyle, and create a plan of action.

    How does weight loss medication work?

    Certain weight loss treatments stop some of the fat that you consume from being digested, and this fat is instead released from the body in your stool. The active ingredient in these products attaches to enzymes that break down fat in the digestive system, and stops them from functioning as they normally would. Because this fat isn’t absorbed by the body, it allows you to lose weight. Weight loss medications like Xenical work in this way.

    Other weight loss medications work a bit differently. Contrave, Wegovy and Saxenda act on receptors in the brain that control your appetite, causing you to feel fuller and less hungry. This can help you to eat less food, and reduce your weight.

    How we source info.

    When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

    What types of weight loss medication are there?

    From tablets to capsules to injections, there are a variety of weight loss medicines available. There are capsules you can take at meal times that help to limit fat absorption, tablets you take at regular times of the day, and injections that work on appetite receptors in the brain that you can take every day or every week.

    Which type of treatment is the right option for you can depend on factors like how prone you are to certain side effects, if you’re taking other medicines which may interact with weight loss treatment, or if you have certain health conditions.

    Which is the best weight loss medication for me?

    It depends on your health background. Weight loss treatments can have side effects, so if you’re prone to these, this may determine which treatments are right for you and which aren’t. For example, Xenical is a capsule that can cause loose stools, so if you have a condition like IBS you may be better off with a different product (although it should be noted that all weight loss products can cause this side effect).

    If you have other health conditions, or if you’re currently taking certain medication, these can also influence what the right treatment option is for you. Contrave for instance isn’t suitable if you have high blood pressure or if you’re taking antidepressants.

    The type of treatment that you can use (or would prefer to use) is another factor. For example, Saxenda is effective but not everyone wants to use an injection. Xenical is a capsule, so if you’re able to take capsules and would rather take capsules, this may be the better option for you. Contrave is a tablet you take at set times each day, so if you can take tablets and you find them easier to swallow than capsules, for example, these products may be the best ones for you.

    What does Xenical do?

    Xenical contains orlistat, and works by stopping you from absorbing fat in food. It normally prevents one third of dietary fat from being digested.

    It’s a tablet you take three times a day at meal times. Xenical only works if there’s a meal containing fat in your gut, so if you skip a meal, it’s better to skip a tablet.

    Weight loss and diet

    If you’re overweight, it may be that changes to your diet, along with exercising on a regular basis, are the two measures that help you to reduce your weight to a healthy level (without the need for any medication).

    After creating a food diary and assessing what sort of dietary habits you can adjust on a day-to-day basis, you can start setting yourself realistic (and safe) targets. The CDC in the USA recommends aiming for losing between 1-2 Ibs a week, and this is achievable by managing your daily calorie intake.

    If you’re trying to lose weight, it’s important to do it at a gradual, sustainable rate. Trying to lose too much, too quickly by skipping meals altogether can lead to what’s called ‘yo-yo-ing’ (your weight fluctuating up and down), because the natural reaction to drastic ‘under-eating’ is ‘over-eating’. If you dramatically ‘under-eat’ as well, you might put yourself at risk of other health problems because your body won’t be getting the nutrients it needs.

    So in short, eating healthier foods and controlling portion sizes will help you to lose weight and stay at a healthy weight (rather than skipping meals).

    Weight loss and exercise

    Exercise can help you to burn off excess calories that you don’t lose through making dietary changes alone, so combining the two is more effective than choosing one or the other.

    But exercise is also great for keeping your motivation levels up if you’re aiming to lose weight, and boosting your general wellbeing.

    Even just moving your body around burns more calories than sitting down, so small things can make a difference.

    Increasing the amount of activity you do gradually is usually an effective way to approach exercise if you’re looking to lose weight, because it’s easier to make it part of your daily routine.

    For otherwise healthy adults, 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic exercise each week is recommended . Aerobic activities are exercises that increase your heart rate, and get your blood pumping. Walking, running, cycling, dancing and swimming are all examples, or using a treadmill or stair stepper. Strength training can help too. Lifting weights or using weight machines are examples of activities that help to increase your strength. It’s recommended to do strength-based exercises on two or more days each week in addition to aerobic exercise.

    It’s important though to speak to a doctor if you’re overweight before you start a new exercise routine. You should aim to push yourself to begin with, but not too hard. Not only can this lead to injury, but it may impact your motivation.

    Weight loss surgery: is it an option for me?

    It may be. And it can be very effective. But it’s not a small operation, and it’s normally only an option for people who haven’t managed to lose weight after changing their diet and exercising on a regular basis.

    If you’ve not had success with these strategies, and you also have a BMI of 40 or above (or a BMI between 35 and 40 and an obesity-related condition that could benefit from surgery) you should discuss it with your physician. Surgery usually involves long-term follow-up with a doctor too, to monitor your progress over an extended period of time.

    Weight loss: FAQ

    Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

    How is Ozempic different to other weight loss or diabetes treatments?

    Answer:
    Ozempic tends to be used when other drugs like metformin haven’t worked well enough at controlling blood sugar. It can sometimes be used in conjunction with these treatments.

    Unlike other antidiabetic drugs, Ozempic works for a long time, so you only need to take it once a week, while other diabetes treatments often need to be used daily. Some weight loss treatments containing Orlistat also need to be taken every meal time, three times per day. So Ozempic is a much less frequent treatment in comparison.

    Clinical trials have shown that Ozempic significantly decreases blood sugar levels in hemoglobin compared to other treatments.

    Why should I buy Ozempic online with Treated?

    Answer:
    Talk to us about your health. You’ll be asked a few questions so that we can help you find the treatment that works best for you. From there, you can get Ozempic delivered to you and receive your treatment regularly as you want it. We’ll be in touch with you when your treatment has started to see how it’s working for you, and you can pause, change or cancel it whenever you want to.

    Do I need a prescription for Ozempic?

    Answer:
    Ozempic is a prescription-only treatment. This means that it’s not available over-the-counter. If you want to buy Ozempic, you’ll need to speak to our clinician first, and they’ll decide if it’s a treatment that can be suitable for you.

    Is Ozempic similar to any other treatments?

    Answer:
    Rybelsus is another treatment for diabetes with Semaglutide as its ingredient. It comes as a tablet rather than an injection, but it works in a similar way to treat diabetes.

    Saxenda and Victoza are also injections used for similar purposes (weight loss and diabetes, respectively) but the active ingredient in them (liraglutide) is a bit different. You’ll also need to take these once a day, while you only need to take Ozempic once a week.

    Which dose of Ozempic should I use?

    Answer:
    You’ll normally start on the 0.25mg dose once a week, and move up to the 0.5mg dose after a month. Some people may have their dose increased to 1mg if the 0.5mg dose doesn’t work well enough. Once you’ve talked to us about your health our clinician will prescribe a dose that should work best for you.

    Xenical or Orlistat: what’s the difference?

    Answer:
    Xenical is the brand-name treatment, so it’s more well known than Orlistat. Orlistat, as is usually the case with generic treatments, is a bit cheaper. The appearance of the capsules and the packaging they come in may differ too.

    But otherwise, both treatments contain the same active ingredient (orlistat) and work in very much the same way in the body.

    Xenical vs Alli: which is better?

    Answer:
    Both treatments contain the same active ingredient, orlistat, and work in the same way. Alli stops about one quarter of the fat that you consume from being digested, whereas Xenical prevents around one third of the fat from being absorbed by the body. Alli also contains half the dosage of Xenical (60mg, as opposed to 120mg), which is why it removes less fat from the body.

    Alli isn't currently available in Canada. But Xenical works in the same way and has the same active ingredient. So if you're interested in Alli, Xenical might be the one to try.

    How long does Xenical take to work?

    Answer:
    This depends on many factors, but we’ll be able to monitor how it’s working for you and suggest any changes if they’re needed. If you’ve lost 5% of your weight within a three month period, there’s no threshold for how long Xenical will be prescribed for.

    If you continue to lose weight beyond six months, our clinician may recommend that you keep taking Xenical. This may be for up to one or two years, or longer still if you have a significant amount of weight to lose.

    What should I do if Xenical doesn’t work?

    Answer:
    Let us know. We can advise you on alternative weight loss treatments if Xenical isn’t effective for you.

    It may be that making further changes to your diet and exercising on a regular basis may help. Our clinician may recommend that you keep a food diary and an activity diary for exercise to help them monitor your eating habits properly. Once our clinician has got this information to hand, they can help you to implement adjustments to your lifestyle and to create an action plan.

    Is Xenical safe to use?

    Answer:
    For most people, Xenical is perfectly safe to use, but it’s not suitable for everyone.

    Losing weight can impact treatment doses for conditions such as diabetes and high cholesterol. If you’re using these medicines, it’s very important that you let us know.

    If you’re on the birth control pill, it’s advisable to use additional contraception like condoms if you’re taking Xenical, as it can trigger severe diarrhea. This may compromise the effectiveness of oral contraception.

    Xenical is not suitable for children.

    Can I buy Xenical over the counter?

    Answer:
    Xenical is a prescription-only treatment, so you’ll need to have a consultation with a clinician so they can assess if it’s suitable for you to use.

     

    Why should I buy Xenical online with Treated?

    Answer:
    We’re committed to helping you get the treatment that’s perfect for you.

    So talk to us. Take our consultation. We’ll get to know more about you, and the clinicians will offer you safe and suitable treatment options to choose from.

    Once you’ve selected your medication, you can also choose how frequently you’d like to receive it, and the amount of medication sent each time too. Change, pause or cancel your subscription at any point.

    Our service doesn’t stop once your medication has been delivered. Aftercare is as important as the prescribing process, so if you’ve got any questions about your treatment, just send us a message. We’ll reach out to you on a regular basis to find out how you’re getting on with it.

    How safe is Contrave?

    Answer:
    Contrave is a safe treatment for the majority of people that use it. In a safety and tolerability review of weight loss medications, the majority of side effects associated with naltrexone and bupropion were transient.

    But you should still read the safety info that comes with Contrave before you take it, and report anything unusual to a doctor.

    What are the ingredients in Contrave?

    Answer:
    There isn’t a non-branded version of Contrave available currently, although the medication is known by different names overseas (in the UK, it’s called Mysimba).

    The active components in Contrave are available in other medications. For example, Zyban, a stop smoking treatment, contains bupropion. But this isn’t suitable for use in weight loss.

    Can you get side effects with Contrave?

    Answer:
    Some people who use Contrave may get side effects, as is the case with any medication. In some cases these might be mild or pass after a short time, but a minority of people may get more serious side effects. If you notice anything that concerns you, it’s important to get medical help right away.

    Contrave, Xenical or Saxenda: what’s the difference?

    Answer:
    Contrave shares some similarities with other treatments for weight loss. It’s a tablet, like Xenical, but works in a different way to this medication. Xenical, instead, works by preventing the body from digesting fat, which is eliminated without being fully processed by the body.

    Like Saxenda, Contrave has an effect on appetite, but the way the medication is administered is quite different (Saxenda is an injection).

    So which is better? It depends on a number of things: what you’ve used before, whether it was successful, and to an extent how much weight you need to lose and how quickly you want to lose it. Our clinicians can help you settle on the treatment that works best for you.

    Can I only get Contrave by prescription?

    Answer:
    Yes, you’ll need a prescription to get Contrave, whether you’re purchasing it online or directly from the pharmacy. This is because its use needs to be monitored by a clinician. For example, if you don’t lose 5% of your weight during the first 16 weeks of treatment, it’s likely you’ll need to try another medication or method of losing weight. Your blood pressure may need to be monitored as well.

    Do I need to change my diet and exercise more when taking Contrave?

    Answer:
    For any weight loss treatment to work at its best, you’ll need to eat a healthy balanced diet and get regular physical activity when taking it. If you don’t make lifestyle changes but do manage to lose weight with treatment, it’s possible that you’ll regain the weight you lost if you haven’t developed good habits to maintain a healthy weight.

    Why should I buy Contrave online with Treated?

    Answer:
    We’re tailoring weight loss treatment to your needs. Tell us about your health and we’ll suggest the medications that are best for you and your health. Choose your treatment from there, and how often you’d like us to deliver it to you.

    And if you’re unsure about anything, our clinicians are on hand to chat with you. They’ll reach out to you to see how you’re getting on with your medication, and if you’d like us to make any adjustments to it. Change, pause or cancel your subscription at any point.

    Is there a meal plan I should follow when taking Saxenda?

    Answer:
    There isn’t a specific meal plan, but it’s important to follow a low calorie diet and get plenty of exercise while you’re taking Saxenda. Before you start taking it, a clinician can help you with this. Alongside exercise, following a healthy diet will make it more likely that your treatment is successful.

    You can work out your estimated energy requirement (EER), or how many calories you can eat per day to maintain the same weight, using a formula that takes into account your age, weight, height and activity level. Once you have this number, you can work out how many calories you should aim for each day to achieve a steady, gradual rate of weight loss. It’s generally recommended to aim for a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day to lose one pound per week.
