FDA-approved weight loss medications are generally prescribed to adults with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30, or a BMI greater than 27 with any of the following:
hypertension, diabetes mellitus type 2, or dyslipidemia (high cholesterol).
Will my doctor consider prescribing me one of these weight loss medicines?

Type2DM & Obesity
In month nine of 2014, a patented formulation from naltrexone ER plus buproprion ER, brand designation Contrave was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), becoming the fourth medication approved for long-term weight management in patients with obesity. Saxenda, a GLP-1 receptor agonist, had also been Food and Drug Administration Licensed for obesity treatment in near the end of 2014. https://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=2208817
Exercise and diet are the best weight loss methods, but weight loss with some medications may be better than no weight loss.

A human pilot study testing the safety and effectiveness of NT (Number Ten), a dietary herbal supplement made from rhubarb, ginger, astragulus, red sage and turmeric, to reduce food intake and cause weight loss.
A total of 24 healthy women, 18–60 years, body mass index 25–35 kg/m2 on no chronic medication were randomized to four groups of six: (1) oral freeze-dried NT 6 gm/day, (2) bed-dried NT 6 gm/day, (3) freeze-dried NT 12 gm/day or (4) placebo. Number Ten dose was escalated over 3 weeks and maintained for 8 weeks on a 700 kcal/day diet below maintenance. Food intake was measured at baseline and 4 weeks. Safety parameters were monitored weekly during dose escalation, week 6 and week 12.
Weight loss was 1.8 kg for placebo and 0.4 kg for 500 mg NT whereas the 250 mg bed- and freeze-dried NT gained 0.43 and 0.87 kg, respectively (P=NS). The food intake increased 74 kcal with 250 mg freeze-dried NT and decreased 193.7 kcal with 500 mg freeze-dried NT (P<0.01). There was a dose-related incidence of loose stools in the NT groups, but no other toxicity was seen. Number Ten was found to contain sennosides, known laxatives and gallic acid, which is known to give weight loss in rodents.
