Answer

Oude et al concluded that, although no one treatment program can be conclusively recommended, combined behavioral lifestyle interventions produce a significant reduction in weight. Although orlistat and sibutramine (withdrawn from US market) may be used as adjuncts to lifestyle interventions, they must be carefully considered. [35]
