Weight Loss medications and Alcohol Cravings

By: Dr. Elvira Jasarevic


It's been such a long time since we've seen progress in medications that can help with alcohol and drug use. Especially medications that are easy to use and tailored towards improving primary care ability to help patients through these medications.

For a while I have been treating patients with diabetes and weight loss with these drugs and one thing keeps coming back is that they tell me their appetite for alcohol and other substances has gone down or disappeared.

I mentioned this to other Physicians and they started noticing the same effect and just as I was hoping articles came out at the end of last year stating the same thing.

These medications have been revolutionary from helping patients with diabetes, weight loss, pcos and now alcohol misuse!!

I am so excited that we are getting closer to having these tools to help our patients.
