Zepbound

Zepbound is the first weight loss medication to combine synthetic versions of two hormones, GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide). These hormones help you feel fuller longer. Zepbound™ also stabilizes blood sugar levels. It can help with cravings and appetite, and studies show it is extremely effective for weight loss. Zepbound™ is FDA-approved for chronic weight management.
Zepbound is FDA-approved for chronic weight management.

Ozempic®

Ozempic® is part of a class of medications called Glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1s) which can help you feel fuller and helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. They can also help with cravings and appetite and have been found to be very effective for weight loss.
Ozempic® is FDA-approved for the treatment of type II diabetes. 

Wegovy

Wegovy is FDA-approved for chronic weight management in those who meet specific BMI criteria.

Buproprion

Buproprion is commonly used by leading specialist obesity clinicians and weight clinics off-label to help aid with weight loss by reducing cravings and compulsive eating.
Bupropion is FDA-approved to treat depression, to prevent depression in patients with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and for tobacco cessation.

Metformin

Metformin is an FDA-approved medication for pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes that helps your body use insulin better and reduce blood sugar, resulting in weight loss.

Kelley, 53 | Lost 30 lbs
I have been a member of Found for about 7 months, and in that time, I’ve managed to lose about 30 lbs. Like a lot of you when we went into lockdown, I turned to food to get rid of the stress and to comfort me. Once I found the medication component and also my personal coach that would check in with me, it really had that accountability, but I also found that the medication I was using turned off those cravings and urges that all of us feel.

Tony, 45 | Lost 70 lbs
When I started I was 468 lbs, and after several months into the program I am down to 396 lbs. My favorite aspect of the program is the whole support group from the Facebook group. There's no calorie counting, no special diet food that you have to purchase. It gives you the building blocks to change the way that you are living your life so that you can lose the weight and keep the weight off for good.

Elie, 64 | Lost 12 lbs
I’m over 60 and I’ve always been very fit, but since menopause, I’ve had an awful time trying to keep my weight down and I just haven’t felt healthy. I’m a retired nurse and I was looking for some type of program that would not only help me but is more than just about medication. And since I found Found, I have been so successful and it has been life changing for me. It’s not just about taking medicine. It’s not a magic pill. It’s multifacted.

Emily, 34 | Lost 45 lbs
I joined Found for my kids. I want to be the type of confident that I wish to see in them. So I know that means losing enough weight to find happiness in myself. I have been able to lose about 45 lbs so far, and I have another 20 lbs to go, but I am confident that I can reach my goals and keep off the weight this time.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What medications does Found offer?
    The Found program offers both FDA-approved anti-obesity medications, as well as “off-label” medications that are shown by clinical evidence to be highly effective and safe for helping with weight loss. “Off-label” medications are FDA-approved but for an indication other than weight loss.

    When prescribed responsibly, off-label medication can help expand your range of options to ensure you get the right medication at the right dose for your unique biology. Clinicians frequently prescribe medications “off label” when a medicine has a known benefit to treat a condition. The medications that a Found-affiliated provider may prescribe (either “on-label” or “off-label”) are the same medications prescribed in premiere academic medical obesity treatment centers across the United States.

    Medication prescriptions are up to a medical provider’s discretion. Found does not dictate prescribing practices or interfere with the medical judgment of our affiliated medical providers.
  • Who are the providers on the Found platform?
    All of our medical providers are US-licensed with combined decades of clinical experience and weight loss expertise. Alongside our robust medical team, Found collaborates with renowned health leaders to craft effective and personalized weight care paths that work in sync with your unique biology and lifestyle.

    Once you've created an account and had an initial consult, you can view your current provider or send them a message using the portal.
  • When does my medication arrive? Do I have to wait for it to come in order to begin?
    You should hear from your Found Medical Provider within 2 to 4 days after you’ve submitted an intake survey. The length of the consult is dependent on any questions you have or additional questions the provider may need to ask before prescribing a medication. Providers typically respond within 24-48 hours depending on provider availability as consults are asynchronous. After you and the provider have agreed upon a prescription, it will be sent to our e-pharmacy partners to be filled and shipped. The filling and shipping process generally takes 4-6 days.

    Additionally, your coach will reach out within your first week to guide you through your first month. You can go ahead and start using our app to work on building new, healthy habits prior to receiving your medication!
  • What’s included in Found’s health coaching?
    Our expert coach support is designed to kickstart your weight care journey and help you stay on track with your weekly goals. In month-one of your plan, you’ll be matched 1:1 with a dedicated coach to guide you via SMS through healthy lifestyle change, including nutrition, movement, sleep, mindful eating, and more — all personalized to your weight care goals. Your plan also includes access to our network of coaches through our in-app community for guidance, support, and encouragement throughout your membership.
