Which patients would be a good fit for Plenity?
Plenity can be a great option for an adult who:
Is motivated to reach their weight management goals but may need a little extra help
Wants to lose 10 to 30 pounds,* but isn’t expecting a quick fix
Is committed to taking Plenity as prescribed and prepared to pay the direct cost of $98 for a 4-week supply ($1.75 per meal). Health insurance coverage for weight management prescriptions is highly variable.
Plenity works by helping people feel fuller, eat less, and lose weight gradually. It helps amplify—not replace—their weight management efforts.
It’s important to take Plenity as prescribed—people who do are more likely to lose more weight on Plenity.
