Single Medication for Anxiety AND Obesity?

Some exciting news from the research pipeline: there may be a single drug that can treat the combination of anxiety of obesity.

If you know me and my practice, then you know that I am always trying to simplify the medication regimens of my patients. And so often in my field, there are medications with overlapping benefits that can easily take the place of multiple other meds.

Researchers at University of Ottawa are looking at how a new drug, called Trodusquemine, can help both obesity and anxiety at the same time. I’m very excited about this and hoping that I’ll be able to add it to my arsenal soon.
