Prescription Weight Loss Medication Vs. Over The Counter & Internet Solutions

Prescription weight loss medications can only be purchased in a CQC registered clinic, such as Bodyline. Over the counter solutions are mainly herbal, very low dosage and unsupported.

In general, they do not have the same results in overall weight loss. Buying medication online does not always guarantee that the products are genuine or safe for you to take.  It can be dangerous.  We would strongly advise that you only purchase prescription medication from CQC registered clinics which are very strictly regulated.
