Try asking a DOCTOR.

The doctor will probably tell you to diet and exercise, and may refer you to a dietician before going down the 'medication' route.

Maybe, but it is important for you to know and understand two things:
1. You and you alone have the power to change your weight.
2. There is no "weight loss" medication that does more than maybe help people feel a little fuller. There is no medication that can do what you can do without medication.
People who are overweight are overeaters. Many are emotional eaters who use food for comfort when they are stressed, mad, sad, tired, etc. Many of these people don't have any understanding of nutrition or how to cook, so they've become accustomed to eating fast food, junk food, and highly processed food.
I encourage you to read some books from authors including Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Will Cole, Dr. Steven Gundry, Dave Asprey, Mark Sisson, and Mark Hyman. Select a low-carb, real food, anti-inflammitory diet and eat between 1,2-- and 1,500 calories a day of great food. Dump the junk. You'll lose weight and improve your health. Start exercises as is appropriate for your current fitness level and keep going.
In a year -- by next December even -- you can be at a healthy weight with a healthy body composition and probably address all of your obesity-related health issues like high blood pressure, fatigue, brain fog, digestive/GI tract issues, arthritis, and pre-diabetes/type II diabetes.
If you continue to eat a low-nutrient, highly inflammatory diet and take something like Contrave, you're likely to lose on 12 pounds in a year. That's the data from the drug makers own study. And the cost? $100/month.

Weight loss medication doesn't exist. All attempts have failed. Here's why:Source(s): "Fat Chance..." by Dr. Robert Lustig M.D

Normally they will recommend consulting a dietitian or nutritionist and exercising more.
If weight is still not controlled then lap-band surgery or simillar may be advised.
Prescription medication is rarelt recommended for weight loss as it is not a good way to loose weight.

Maybe but more than likely, he will ask you to join Weight Watchers.

He/she should not. You should be able to do it through diet and exercise. Pills are just a temporary crutch and the the results don't last. You need to have a diet and exercise program you can stick with.

I doubt it, that isn't an amount you can't lose yourself, he will give you a diet sheet and tell you to go jogging most likely.
