Best drugs for weight loss

The Best Weight Loss Drugs on the Market

With so much noise about successful weight loss, weight loss transformations, and new healthy lifestyle and wellness trends, it can be hard to decipher the useful from the useless information.

That’s why so many turn to weight loss drugs to aid in their personal weight loss goals. Fad diets, extreme meal plans, and intense exercise regimes are usually unsustainable and won’t help the people who need to shed weight the most. Not to mention the fact that altering diet and increasing exercise alone may not work for many, as their weight problems could come down to genetics, metabolism, or hormone imbalances.

The best weight loss drugs allow people to eat in a calorie deficit and aid in sustainable and guaranteed healthy weight loss alongside nutrition and exercise plans.  But what are they, and how do they work?

What are the best weight loss drugs?

The best weight loss drugs come in many forms, but all work similarly to ensure users achieve maximum weight loss for optimum health levels when used alongside support and an active lifestyle.

These drugs are:


Phentermine, also known as the “pink pill” is a quick and safe weight loss medication, acting as an appetite suppressant to curb cravings and inhibit hunger. Phentermine can only be prescribed by a specialist CQC registered clinic, either via video or in-clinic consultation, with a Bodyline medical weight loss programme.

This weight loss drug allows you to stick to a calorie deficit without feeling hungry, allowing you to lose up to a stone in your first month! Our patients have seen total transformations with Phentermine, and it is our most popular weight loss drug at Bodyline. It is used all over the world and is generally tolerated well by users, who experience very few side effects.


Diethylpropion is also known as Tenuate and works as a fast and safe weight loss drug, suppressing the appetite of its users. Diethylpropion can also only be prescribed by a specialist CQC registered clinic, either via video or in-clinic consultation alongside a Bodyline medical weight loss plan.

Its efficiency was seen in one study which saw participants lose three times more weight than those who were not taking Diethylpropion! The weight loss drug is often prescribed as an alternative to Phentermine.


Our weight loss Saxenda Bodyline SlimPen contains the active drug Liraglutide, which works quickly and safely as an effective weight loss drug. Saxenda is taken in the form of an easy and painless injection self-administered daily. It works to suppress appetite to allow users to live in a caloric restriction in order to lose weight and reach optimum health. 

Saxenda can only be prescribed safely by a specialist CQC registered clinic, either via video or in-clinic consultation alongside a personalised and supported weight loss programme. Saxenda Bodyline SlimPen allows you to shed pounds without cravings or need for snacking, and is generally well tolerated by users, who experience very few side effects. It even improves cardiovascular health for many patients!


The Ozempic slimming injection pen is known as a ‘gamechanger’ in the industry thanks to the incredible weight loss results that it achieves in celebrities and patients across the world. It is clinically proven to reduce the appetite, making you feel fuller for longer.

Ozempic slimming injection is a once-weekly self-administered injection that is delivered in a prefilled pen.  It is easy to use and completely painless but can only be prescribed safely by a specialist CQC registered clinic, either via video or in-clinic consultation alongside a Bodyline medical weight loss programme. Ozempic sees its users lose weight quickly and safely by easily changing their eating habits.  It is generally well tolerated by patients with very few side effects.

How weight loss drugs work

Most weight loss drugs work by targeting the appetite centre of the brain in the central nervous system. They can alter the signals in our body that tell us when we are hungry or when we are full, thus helping us to remain in a calorie deficit.

Scientifically, weight loss comes when the body burns more energy than it consumes; if our body is not allowing us to do so due to hunger signals, weight loss drugs ensure those hunger signals subside. This means users can remain in a calorie deficit, provided they follow nutritional advice on their food and activity levels.

The best weight loss drugs work at their optimum level when taken alongside fully supported programmes that ensure users stay on track to their weight loss goals. Bodyline’s specialist weight loss nurses are trained to aid in successful weight loss of all our clients no matter what their starting point. That’s why we’ve helped over 100,000 people lose weight with Bodyline’s weight loss drugs and medical weight loss programmes.

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.
