Supplements

Weight loss supplements typically contain vitamins, minerals, and concentrated nutrients that are to be used along with a healthy diet and exercise plan to boost your metabolism, process food more efficiently, and help you lose weight.

The Food and Drug Administration has approved certain drugs for long term obesity treatment. These include lorcaserin, naltrexone/bupropion, phentermine/topiramate, and orlistat. Most of these drugs are intended for adult use only while orlistat has been approved for use in adolescents. These drugs have different mechanisms of action and can cause some side effects. Your doctor can determine which drugs and supplements would be most beneficial to you.

It must be emphasized that supplements are an adjunct to a healthy diet and should not be used to replace any of your meals.
