    Prescription Weight Loss Drugs - Should You Take Them?

    Doctors usually prescribe them only if your BMI is 30 or higher, or if it's at least 27 and you have a condition that may be related to your weight, like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. Measuring your waistline is another screening tool of excessive body fat and may indicate a higher risk of developing obesity-related conditions if you are:

    • A man whose waist circumference is more than 40 inches
    • A non-pregnant woman whose waist circumference is more than 35 inches

    Your goal of losing at least 5- 10% of your body weight can prevent a collection of risk factors known as the metabolic syndrome, heart disease and more.

    There are herbal and natural alternative supplements instead of prescription appetite suppressants for patients who are not medically approved or who cannot use stimulants for job-related reasons.
