Suprenza Medication Information

This prescription weight loss drug is approved for use in obese people only and should be used once daily, preferably in the morning. It comes as a tablet that dissolves on the tongue.
Do not use this medicine in higher-than-recommended amounts or for more than a few weeks, as it is a type of stimulant. Physical dependence and addiction are possible consequences of extended use.
To help reduce the risk of complications with Suprenza, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other medications you are taking (including other weight loss products), as well as up-to-date information on your medical history. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
