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?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.
Why doesn’t Found mention any medication by name?Your medical provider may offer a variety of prescription medications based on your unique biology and needs following a virtual consultation/evaluation.
Found offers both FDA-approved branded anti-obesity medications as well as off-label generic combinations when determined safe by the treating clinician.
As such, we are not given a comprehensive list of all the medications that our Found providers may readily prescribe. Your provider will decide what medication is best for you and make sure you're comfortable with the medication before you receive a prescription.
Found does not dictate prescribing practices or interfere with the medical judgment of our affiliated medical providers.
Please note that consultations are considered a member benefit and we do require a purchase and medical intake to be completed before any medications can be prescribed or offered.
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.
