What are the best drugs for weight loss?

Many people all over the U.K. struggle to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. This can be for many different reasons, but most commonly metabolism, body type and emotional or mental health are the biggest barriers in weight loss. When these factors are difficult to overcome, doctors may suggest a medical weight loss route through the use of appetite suppression weight loss drugs.  These weight loss drugs can be either slimming pills or weight loss injections.

Our clinical team constantly review medical weight loss medications ensuring that we offer the most safe and effective options whilst providing options for a range of medical histories.

We’ve compiled a list of the best drugs for weight loss to be used alongside our ongoing motivational support. You can be confident that when sourcing our medications through a secure supply chain, that we can guarantee the quality and safety of the drugs. Bodyline is CQC accredited, so you can be sure our programmes and prescriptive drugs are trustworthy.

Phentermine is popular appetite suppressant pill used to decrease hunger, curb cravings, and aid in weight loss. Phentermine is FDA approved and known as the No. 1 slimming pill in the USA.   The slimming medication has been proven to be a fast and safe weight loss solution for many people. Often prescribed for 3 months, it is usually a ‘pink pill’ that has helped millions of people to lose weight in an efficient and controlled manner with minimal side effects. Reduction in both weight and waist circumference are shown to average between 5% and 10%.

Phentermine works best for those who are prone to over eating, and research shows those who have higher appetites are more likely to lose weight on the drug.


Mysimba is a medication, in a tablet format, made up of two drugs, naltrexone and bupropion. Working together, they reduce cravings and suppress appetite, making it easier to resist snacking and eating out of boredom, therefore aiding weight loss. Mysimba, alongside diet and exercise, is proven to reduce more body weight than just diet and exercise alone!

The medication is often taken while individuals are undertaking a low-carb diet and an increase in exercise. So, at Bodyline, we provide constant support and offer personalised action plans covering diet, exercise, and nutrition to ensure our clients achieve their goals. Plus, our one-to-one appointments deliver advice and motivation!


Diethylpropion is another appetite suppressant pill used over a longer period of time than phentermine. Users find a greater effect of diethylpropion on the reduction of waist size, and one study reported an average loss of 1.25lbs a week!

It works similarly to phentermine in that it is an appetite suppressant used to decrease hunger and curb cravings and taken in the form of a pill. It works in the appetite centre of the brain to encourage weight loss!

Saxenda (Liraglutide)

Saxenda is a once-daily weight loss slimming injection containing the active drug Liraglutide and comes in a prefilled pen, the SlimPen. It acts as a substitute for an appetite hormone in the body that responds to our digestion, regulating hunger levels and thus reducing appetite. It helps to regulate appetite therefore aiding in weight loss!

There are many research papers that credit Saxenda’s effectiveness for weight loss, with one recent study recording a decrease of 5-10% body mass for most subjects in the trial. It helps individuals keep to a calorie-controlled diet and meet personal weight loss goals!

Bodyline offers a fully supported SlimPen programme, led by a clinical team. Our research shows that the regular support that our clinicians provide is the most effective approach to your weight loss journey.

By now we should all have heard of the incredible weight loss results from GLP-1 receptor agonist medications and their ever-growing popularity. All over the UK, people are searching for access to ‘game changing’ medications to solve their weight problems. Searches for semaglutide, tirzepatide and liraglutide (brand names WeGovy/Ozempic, Mounjaro, and Saxenda respectively) have increased dramatically in the past year, and interest continues to rise. That’s because for the first time ever, there seems to be a potential long-term solution to the obesity epidemic that has afflicted the world over the past 30 years.
If you're on a weight loss journey and are prescribed medication to aid in this process, it's essential to manage your medication intake effectively during Ramadan to ensure both your health and adherence to religious obligations.
Despite the enormous popularity of WeGovy and its incredible impact on weight loss, a shortage of the injectable weight loss therapy has been ongoing in recent months. The semaglutide-containing injection has been dubbed “game-changing” for the treatment of obesity, and demand has been high, but manufacturer Novo Nordisk has struggled to keep up and has only released limited stock.
