Plenity is a new weight loss aid that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help manage weight in adults with excess weight or obesity, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) between 25 and 40 kg/m². This medication, when combined with diet and exercise, can help with weight management.

Indications for Use of Plenity

Plenity is approved for use in adults with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 to 40 kg/m², who have excess weight or obesity. This medication is to be used in conjunction with diet and exercise to aid in weight management.

How Plenity Works

Plenity works by creating a feeling of fullness before a meal, so that the person eating will consume less food and ultimately consume fewer calories. The medication is taken before a meal and works by absorbing water in the stomach, creating a gel-like substance that takes up space in the stomach, leaving less room for food. This leads to a feeling of fullness, reducing the amount of food consumed and ultimately helping with weight management.

How to Take Plenity

Plenity is taken orally before meals, with a glass of water. The recommended dose is two capsules before the two largest meals of the day. It is important to follow the dosing instructions as prescribed by a healthcare provider.

Safety and Efficacy of Plenity

The safety and efficacy of Plenity were evaluated in clinical trials that included over 1,000 adults with excess weight or obesity. The results showed that Plenity, when combined with diet and exercise, led to significant weight loss compared to placebo.

Possible Side Effects of Plenity

Common side effects of Plenity include gastrointestinal symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, flatulence, and nausea. However, these side effects are usually mild and go away on their own after a few days. If you experience any severe side effects, it is important to contact a healthcare provider immediately.
