This is Dr. David

I would recommend Alli which is orlistat which is the over the counter strength of a

prescription orlistat (Xenical) which is used for weight loss

Alli is over the counter and is dosed at 1 pill with each fat containing meal.

do talk to your doctor about this choice

and ask to see a dietician and a exercise therapist to help you with exercise regimen and diet to help you loose weight.

I would ask your doctor for a different one

There is a new drug out that works very well for diabetes and weight loss.

it can also be given to non diabetics

it is called saxenda

it is the most effective drug I have seen in my clinical practice
