Today, nearly half of Americans are trying to lose weight, but roughly 80% of people who lose weight will gain it back within the first 12 months. Diet culture has been synonymous with starvation, calorie counting, and restriction, fueling the belief that weight loss simply happens when you “eat less, move more”. However, most people discover that this mantra alone doesn’t work, and it’s not because people are failing their diet; it’s because diets are failing them.
Found is the largest weight loss clinic in the United States
Found outperforms clinical expectations for primary medications offered by at least 13% and up to 229%
Prescription medication along with a healthier lifestyle doubles to triples the odds of losing 5-10% body weight

Our medication toolkit
Found offers the widest range of medications to address biological challenges that that make weight loss more difficult. Found doctors prescribe medications to help with the following:
Stabilize blood sugar levels
Below is a list of all medications and combinations offered to new and existing members who qualify. Click on the medication name to learn more.
Metformin is a plant-derived off-label option for weight loss, appetite control, and sugar/carbohydrate craving control. It may help people be more adherent to a low carbohydrate diet for those on that type of plan.
Bupropion is an effective off-label option for weight loss which works by reducing appetite and cravings.
Topiramate is used for many medical conditions such as migraines, seizures, and nerve pain but also is a helpful off-label option for weight loss which works by reducing hunger and cravings. Topiramate can be prescribed alone, in combination with other medication, or sometimes to counteract the weight gain potential of certain medicines.
Naltrexone is an off-label option for weight loss which works by treating cravings and compulsive eating.
Naltrexone and Bupropion is a well studied off-label combination which helps treat binging and cravings and is also helpful for people who feel “addicted to food”.
Zonisamide is an effective off-label medication for appetite and craving control. It can be used alone or in combination with other medications to help target multiple mechanisms of weight loss.
Bupropion and Zonisamide is an off-label combination of medications that can reduce overall hunger, increase fullness, and help with overeating and cravings.
Alli is FDA-approved for weight loss, and it decreases the amount of dietary fat absorbed in the intestines.
Some of the medications our medical providers prescribe are FDA approved for weight-loss; others are FDA approved medications but not for the indication of weight loss, a practice known as “off-label” prescribing. Found affiliated medical providers prescribe these off-label medications only when there is sufficient clinical evidence to support the use of a medicine and only after a medical provider has reviewed a member’s particular health history and made a determination that the medicine is safe for the particular member.
However, medication is only part of the equation. It’s also the support from Found’s private online community that creates sustainable and long-lasting habits to support optimal metabolic health.
