In a clinical study,* the overall incidence of side effects for people taking Plenity was no different than for people on a placebo. The most common side effects were fullness, bloating, flatulence, and/or abdominal pain.
*Plenity (n=223) or placebo (n=213) was administered to 436 adults with excess weight or obesity, with or without type 2 diabetes. The study was designed to measure:
- whether at least 35% of individuals receiving Plenity lost 5% of their body weight
- in a clinical trial, 59% of Plenity responders lost on average 10% of their body weight (22 pounds) in six months
- whether individuals receiving Plenity lost 3% more of their body weight than individuals receiving placebo
- individuals on Plenity lost on average 6% vs individuals on placebo, who lost on average 4%.
In a clinical study, there was no difference in overall side effects compared to placebo. The most common side effects were fullness, bloating, flatulence, and/or abdominal pain.
