Prescription weight loss medications are usually effective when combined with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise program.

Xenical (Orlistat) and Meridia (Sibutramine) weight loss drugs are moderately effective, leading to an average weight loss of 5 to 22 pounds over a 1 year period.

This is higher than for typical non-drug treatments. However, the response to these weight loss medications is based on each individual, and some people experience more weight loss than others.

Likewise, there is no one correct dose for these drugs. Your doctor will decide what works best for you based on his or her evaluation of your medical and weight status and your response to treatment.

Some people have lost more than 10 percent of their initial body weight with the help of prescription weight loss drugs. This is a large enough amount to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes and other obesity-related health complications. Patients generally experience a maximum weight loss within 6 months of starting weight-loss-drugs treatment.

Over the short term, weight loss due to prescription drugs may reduce a number of health risks in obese individuals. However, there are few studies to determine the effects of these weight loss drugs over the long term.
