Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

There is no first line injection therapy for weight loss.

There are oral medications like Topiramate and Phentermine to help lose weight.

They should be used with a proper diet.

Ketogenic diet may be better to lose weight.

Please discuss with your doctor.
Best wishes,
Please reply back if you need any further clarification.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
