The effect of obesity pharmacotherapy on body composition, including muscle mass.

Obesity pharmacotherapy represents a promising approach to treating obesity and may provide benefits beyond weight loss alone. Maintaining or even increasing muscle mass during weight loss is important to overall health, metabolic function and weight loss maintenance. Drugs such as liraglutide, semaglutide, tirzepatide, and naltrexone/bupropion have shown significant weight loss effects, and emerging evidence suggests they may also have effects on body composition, particularly a positive influence on muscle mass. However, further research is needed to fully understand the mechanism of action of these drugs and their effects on muscle mass. Clinicians should consider these factors when developing an obesity treatment plan for an individual patient.
