  • Will Tirzepatide be approved soon?

    I keep reading that Eli Lilly is doing great in trials of Tirzepatide for obesity. Will it be approved soon if all goes well? Like, will it be this year or is there still a really long time before we'd ever actually see it?

    They're just about to publish the results of their latest study findings, aren't they? Or did they already do that. The SURMOUNT-1 clinical trial is still going, but the latest outcomes they shared from it showed pretty much that it's a record breaker. I think it was intended as a diabetes medication but the other benefits just couldn't be ignored. I'm excited to see where this goes. The other obesity diet pills that came out in the last few years seem so dubious. They even had to stop one of them after it had already been approved.

      It's about time something good comes along. I hope this one actually works and doesn't just end up hurting people

          I believe this drug was just approved by the FDA. It is a diabetes drug that has also shown helpful for obesity treatment. The brand name for it is Mounjaro

              It's been approved, but only for type 2 diabetes treatment. It's still being studied for obesity treatment. It's promising, but it's not approved for that yet.

                I read the same thing. It's a diabetes 2 drug but they're researching it for future obesity use. That research is pretty early on though.

                  It looks like this one is getting a lot of good weight loss results. Are the side effects bad with this one? The US really needs a good obesity drug that doesn't come with heavy addiction risk or side effects.

                    It's getting a lot of headlines. Maybe it's further along in its research than they're letting on!
