Weight loss treatments help you lose weight when taken alongside a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise. A doctor can prescribe weight loss medication if it’s right for you. Prescription weight loss treatments can make you feel fuller or change how you absorb fat, making it easier to lose weight. Superdrug Online Doctor can provide weight loss tablets or injections.

If you think you might need weight loss treatment you can order it online. You do not need to have had treatment before, but you will need to reach certain criteria (such as your BMI).

If the treatments we offer are not right for you, you’ll get a message from a Superdrug doctor explaining this and offering advice on what to do next.


Weight loss Medication Offered




Prescription weight loss treatments

There are several prescription weight loss treatments available, depending on what you prefer and what is suitable for you. These work to help you achieve your weight loss goals. You can get prescription weight loss treatments in a tablet or an injectable pen from Superdrug Online Doctor.

Weight loss injections

Weight loss injections are a prescription weight loss treatment that can help you lose weight. We currently provide Wegovy, which is an injectable prefilled pen.


Saxenda is an injectable weight loss pen that contains the active ingredient liraglutide. It works by making you feel less hungry. This helps you to eat less and lose weight.

Saxenda is taken once a day, and it should start working within 1 to 2 days. You can expect to see results within a few weeks of taking it.


Wegovy is an injectable weight loss medication for overweight adults or adults with obesity. It is taken once a week and works by mimicking a hormone that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite. It makes you feel more full from less food to help you lose weight.

Weight loss tablets

Weight loss tablets can also be used to lose weight. Superdrug Online Doctor currently has 3 tablets: orlistat, Xenical, and Mysimba.


Orlistat is a weight loss tablet that changes how your body digests fat, meaning you do not absorb some of the fat from your meals. It works best when you eat low fat meals and spread your daily fat intake over 3 meals.

Orlistat can be taken up to 3 times a day and only with meals that contain fat. When you start taking orlistat, it should take around 24 to 48 hours to work. You should see weight loss results within 2 weeks of taking it.


Xenical is a branded version of orlistat. This means it works the same way to change how your body digests fat. It should also be taken up to 3 times daily, with meals containing fat. Xenical should start to work within 24 to 48 hours of taking it. You should start to see weight loss results within 2 weeks of treatment.


Mysimba is a weight loss tablet that makes you feel less hungry. This means it can help you to control your food intake, as it can stop food cravings and make you feel fuller.

When you take Mysimba, you will start on a lower dose that will be increased gradually. Mysimba should start to work within 1 to 2 days of taking it.
