There’s been a lot of hype about weight loss medications lately. Are they for you? Psychiatric medications are guilty of causing enough weight gain to push someone into the category of obese. Today there are several different types of medications available to treat obesity in adults. I talk about some of them in this video such as semaglutine, liraglutide, and phentermine.
