FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I LOSE WEIGHT WITH PRESCRIPTION DRUGS?
Clinical studies have shown that nearly 6 out of 10 people who took Plenity lost at least 5% of their body weight. Their average weight loss was 10% (about 22 pounds). At the same time, similar studies have shown that people who take Topamax for weight loss lose about 11 pounds in comparison to placebo groups. The weight loss effect of these medications increase with both duration of treatment and dosage, when taken for at least four months.
HOW DOES PLENITY FOR WEIGHT LOSS WORK?
Plenity is an oral capsule designed to promote fullness and increase satiety to help patients manage their weight. As the capsules disintegrate in the stomach and they release special particles, which can hydrate up to 100 times their original weight. These particles can occupy about a quarter of average stomach volume when fully hydrated. The gel particles mix with ingested foods, creating a larger volume with higher elasticity and viscosity in the stomach and small intestine, promoting satiety and fullness. And after passing through the digestive system, Plenity particles are eliminated through normal bowel movements (not absorbed).
HOW OFTEN IS THE TREATMENT WITH PLENITY?
Most patients take around three Plenity capsules with water, twice a day, 20 minutes before lunch and dinner. Because Plenity’s “naturally derived building blocks” form an absorbent and dissolvable hydrogel that can grow up to 100 times their size during digestion, absorbing all the water around them.
IS PLENITY FOR WEIGHT LOSS SAFE?
Plenity has a well proven safety profile and during clinical trials was just as well-tolerated as its placebo version. Bur, the most common side effects include fullness, bloating, flatulence, and/or abdominal pain.

IS PLENITY A FDA APPROVED MEDICATION?
The FDA has unanimously approved a Plenity for weight loss. It should be noted, however, that Plenity is neither a medication or appetite suppressor. It also isn't a diuretic that helps you lose weight. In reality, the digestive tract does not absorb it. Plenity is an FDA-approved weight reduction supplement that helps you feel fuller at mealtime and throughout the day by taking up space in your stomach.
