If Mysimba isn’t suitable for you, we have several alternative medications you can consider for weight loss at Superdrug Online Doctor. They contain different active ingredients, which will affect you in different ways. Alternatives you can consider include:
- Mysimba vs Xenical (Orlistat)
Xenical and Mysimba are both effective forms of weight loss treatments. Xenical has been on the market for some time and is a popular choice. The active ingredient in this treatment is orlistat, which reduces the amount of fat your body absorbs during digestion. Xenical is a branded prescription treatment. Unlike Mysimba, it can be purchased over the counter after a registered health professional assesses your suitability.
Mysimba vs Saxenda
Saxenda and Mysimba are both weight-loss drugs. The active ingredient in Saxenda is liraglutide, which makes you feel fuller for longer, reducing your food intake. This medicine is only available in injection form. Just like Mysimba, you need a prescription to buy and take Saxenda.
Mysimba vs Alli
Alli is an over-the-counter treatment that is taken to aid weight loss. It only contains 60g of orlistat, which is half the amount found in Xenical so a prescription isn’t required. Alli prevents a quarter of dietary fat from being digested to reduce weight gain. However, due to the low dosage, it isn’t as effective as Xenical, Mysimba or other prescription medications for weight loss. However, it’s much cheaper and easier to obtain.
