But before we get to the alternative, let’s take a look at the latest weight loss drugs on the market.

New Weight Loss Drugs on the Market

These drugs target weight loss from many angles. It’s important to know how each of these drugs functions to see if it’s risky for a person with your medical history and if it can be addictive.

  • Oral Semaglutide: Known for its role in managing diabetes, oral semaglutide also shows promise in weight management. It works by regulating appetite and slowing digestion.
  • Orforglipron and Danuglipron: These drugs target fat metabolism, aiding in weight loss by modifying the body’s processing of fats.
  • APH-012 and ARD-101: These drugs focus on appetite suppression, influencing the brain’s hunger signals to reduce overall food intake.
  • Tirzepatide: Offering dual benefits by addressing both diabetes and obesity, tirzepatide regulates blood sugar levels while promoting weight loss.
  • Retatrutide, CagriSema, Ecnoglutide, Mazdutide, and Survodutide: These drugs belong to the GLP-1 receptor agonists family, affecting appetite and digestion to bring about weight reduction.
  • Bimagrumab: Aimed at increasing muscle mass, bimagrumab holds promise for those looking to enhance their physical fitness.
