Hello Sania! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In general, the use of drugs for weight loss is very limited because of the possible side effects. The use of weight loss drugs should only be given by doctors and only given to certain patients. To lose weight, the main thing to do is to regulate your diet and increase physical activity. You should change your daily diet to be healthier. Expand the consumption of vegetables and fruit. Besides being more filling, vegetables and fruit have a smaller amount of calories. Avoid foods that are oily or fried, coconut milk, and contain too high sugar. Drink plenty of water, at least 2 liters per day. You should not drink other drinks besides water. You can also ask the opinion of a clinical nutrition specialist about the recommended diet that is right for you. The doctor will examine you, then give you a good meal schedule. You can start doing physical activities, such as brisk walking, running, biking, or swimming for at least 30 minutes per day. You can also add physical activity to your daily activities, for example choosing to use the stairs rather than the elevator or escalator, park the vehicle some distance away so you can walk longer, and so on. Do not be triggered by advertisements on TV and social media about indiscriminate diet drugs. The use of drugs that are not in accordance with your condition can actually cause you damage to the kidneys or liver.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
