less and moving more are the basics of weight loss that lasts. For some
people, prescription weight loss drugs may help.
You'll still need to focus on diet and exercise while taking these drugs,
and they're not for everyone. Before you get a weight loss drug prescription,
tell your doctor about your medical history. That includes any allergies or
other conditions you have; medicines or supplements you take (even if they're
herbal or natural); and whether you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning
to get pregnant soon.
