Weight Loss Medications

"I've tried everything I can think of to lose weight on my own. What do you think about weight loss drugs?" If your job involves weight management counseling, this question probably sounds familiar. Whether you support or oppose the use of prescription drugs as a treatment for obesity, one thing is clear: the issue is not going to go away. At least 30 prescription weight loss medications are in the research and development stage. Might one be the "magic bullet" for permanent, safe weight reduction? This module will discuss the different weight loss medications available.
