Weight Loss Treatment

Effective treatments for healthy and sustainable weight loss

According to NHS research, 67% of men and 60% of women in England are overweight. Of those, 26% of men and 29% of women are obese. Being overweight can cause a number of serious health conditions later in life, including heart problems, high blood pressure, type two diabetes and respiratory illnesses.

Everyone wants to live a healthy life - but for many of us, the challenges of everyday life can simply get in the way. Thankfully, we offer a range of prescription medications clinically proven to help people lose weight - up to 50% faster than with diet and exercise alone. Use our handy BMI calculator to find what treatment is best for you.

As one of the UK’s trusted online pharmacies, all our prescription weight loss treatments are approved by the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). See our full range of weight loss medications here.

  • minerals and vitamins from fruit and vegetables, which also provide fibre
  • Water (about 2 litres per day)
