We recommend that most people commit to the weight loss programme for 12 months to see best results and sustain their weight loss long-term.

A key benefit of GLP-1/GIP medication is a reduction in cravings or ‘food noise’ - making it much easier to build healthy nutritional and exercise habits whilst you’re on the medication. A 12-month programme lets you work with our doctors to reach your weight goals, whilst also giving yourself time to embed new habits with our support. This will give you the best chance of maintaining results when you come off the medication.

Most clinical trials on semaglutide and tirzepatide have been conducted over a one year period, and the medications have been deemed safe to use for up to two years. Our doctors will check in throughout the programme and can support you to transition off the medication at an appropriate time.

We don't believe that weight loss medication should be used at a maintenance dose for longer than two years. Our ambition at Thriva is to support you to sustain weight loss over the long term, using these drugs as a strategic intervention to kick-start your progress.
