We are currently seeking volunteers to participate in a study of an investigational medication for weight loss.  The medication works as an appetite suppressant.

Qualified participants will be divided into one of two different groups: 80% of all participants will begin taking the investigational medication, by injection once a week. The other 20% of all participants will begin taking a placebo injection once a week.

  • Have questionnaires evaluating patient status (mental & physical) at several visits.
