Medicated Weight Loss

Weight Loss Programme

Pillbox Pharmacy provides a Medicated weight loss programme for qualifying patients.

Our programme involves an initial consultation with a pharmacist & if appropriate, a weight loss injection or capsules can be approved for use. Follow-up consultations will be carried out to monitor progress.

We offer Wegovy and Saxenda injections and Orlistat capsules. These promising solutions are for those seeking to achieve their weight loss goals and improve overall metabolic health.

Wegovy and Saxenda are innovative weight loss injections that operate by mimicking the action of a naturally occurring hormone called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) in the body. When administered, they help regulate blood sugar levels, control appetite and reduce food intake by signalling the brain to feel full faster and stay satisfied for longer. This dual action not only aids in weight loss but also enhances insulin sensitivity, making them an effective choice for individuals struggling with obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Orlistat, a weight loss medication in capsule form, operates differently from medications like Wegovy and Saxenda.

Orlistat works by inhibiting the action of an enzyme called lipase in the digestive system. Lipase breaks down dietary fats into smaller molecules that the body can absorb. When Orlistat is taken with meals, it prevents some of the dietary fat from being digested and absorbed, reducing calorie intake from fat. The undigested fat is then excreted from the body through bowel movements.
