New Weight Loss Pill Approved
It’s been awhile–13 years to be exact–since the last FDA approved weight loss pill hit the market but now it appears that a new anti-obesity pill, Belviq, manufactured by Arena Pharmaceutical, will soon be available. Despite only limited success in trials Huffington Post reports that the pill has won approval for use in certain cases.
The agency cleared the pill Wednesday for adults who are obese or are overweight with at least one medical complication, such as diabetes or high cholesterol. The drug should be used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
I know that many people try to avoid pharmaceuticals unless absolutely necessary but, as they say, ask your doctor if Belviq is right for you.
