CHICAGO, Ill. (WPVI) -- If you're trying to lose weight and looking to medication to help, there are two drugs that seem to work better than others.

A study found all five weight loss drugs approved by the F-D-A have been shown to help people lose five-percent of their weight within a year.

But patients taking Qsymia stood the highest chance of losing the most weight.

It was followed by Saxenda and then Contrave.
