Anti-obesity drugs, also known as weight-loss medications, are prescribed as a part of a comprehensive weight-loss program that includes lifestyle modifications, such as dietary changes and increased physical activities. They are intended for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) above a certain threshold or those with obesity-related health conditions. They are typically prescribed under the supervision of healthcare professionals and are not intended for cosmetic weight loss purposes. As they assist in reducing feelings of hunger, promoting satiety, absorbing fat, and increasing metabolism, the demand for anti-obesity drugs is increasing around the world.
