Choosing a medication is a decision between you and your Found board-certified medical provider. There are several factors we consider:
- The benefits of weight loss
- Lifestyle and habits
- Current health issues and other medications
- Family’s medical history
Phentermine InformationFound prioritizes patient safety above anything else. Our medical providers use medical intake responses and choose from more than 30 medication and dosing options to prescribe the most appropriate medication for each individual. The prescribed medication may be phentermine or another medication that is just as effective for weight loss.
According to medical guidelines, the factors that would make a person ineligible for phentermine are:
- History of health conditions - bipolar disorder, hyperthyroidism, anxiety disorder, agitation, substance abuse, insomnia, untreated high blood pressure
Taking certain medications - seizure-related medications, MAOIs, bupropion, dopaminergic, antidepressants, barbituates
- No heart examination by a clinician in the last 12 months
- Consuming more than 10 alcoholic drinks per week and no plans to reduce
- Using recreational drugs

What medication does Found offer?Found offers a range of prescription medications that are all FDA-approved. You will work closely with our board-certified medical providers, who will prescribe medications based on your unique survey responses. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and confirm which medication you’d like to take. One example medication that Found prescribes is Metformin, a safe and widely used medication known to help with weight loss. You can always reach out to email@example.com if you have more questions. Found's Rx program DOES NOT offer unregulated or unproven weight loss "supplements". All medications will be clinician-prescribed and have proven to aid in weight loss when combined with healthy nutrition and consistent movement plans.
Why doesn't Found mention any medications by name?Ultimately, the decision on which medication to prescribe is one that should be made jointly between you and your Found clinician; because you've yet to have your medical consultation, we do not want to speak on your or the clinician's behalf. We encourage all of our members to discuss our wide range of prescription medications with their clinician, and to feel empowered in choosing the one that is best for them. If for whatever reason you feel unsatisfied with the recommended prescription weight loss medication, you can cancel your membership and we will refund any and all costs paid to that point.
Who is Found for?Found is for anyone seeking a holistic approach to weight care. We currently offer three different paths to meet the needs of our members. The Rx Path is for anyone with a BMI ≥30 (or ≥27 with certain comorbidities). However, our recommended medications might not be right for everyone. A board-certified medical provider will review your case to determine if and what medication, or path, may be right for you.
Who are the clinicians on the Found platform?All of our medical providers, clinicians, and nurse practitioners are US-licensed with decades of collective clinical experience. Our providers are expert at prescribing FDA-approved medications and bring that experience to our members for accurate diagnoses and treatment. Found also has supporting teams of weight care specialists - experienced leaders in the industry who work with us to continually craft a program that fits each person’s unique biology, behaviors and preferences. If for whatever reason you find the experience crafted by our team to be lacking, we offer a 100% satisfaction, 30 day money back guarantee. No questions asked.
How soon can I expect my medication to arrive?After your medical provider has prescribed medication for you and you've confirmed the medication, we’ll send your prescription to our pharmacy partner. They will fill the order via expedited shipping (unless you opt to use your own pharmacy instead). So, you should expect to receive your medication approximately 3 - 5 business days after your clinician has completed your consultation and you have confirmed the medication.
Why is Found no longer providing a health coach to new members?Our goal at Found is to create the best weight care program that can reach millions of people. We have temporarily paused our coaching offering while we invest in building out an even better program. All new Found members still have access to a board-certified clinician, medication, the Found digital app, and content created by health experts and coaches. We have reduced the price for Found by $10 per month during this period.
