Starting Patients on Plenity
Intended Use: Plenity® is indicated to aid weight management in adults with excess weight or obesity, a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25–40 kg/m², when used in conjunction with diet and exercise.
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. To learn more, please visit the FAQ page.
What should I tell my patients about Plenity?
- 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.*
*The GLOW pivotal study was a 6-month, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pivotal trial assessing the safety and efficacy of Plenity. Plenity (n=223) or placebo (n=213) was administered to 436 adults with excess weight or obesity, with or without type 2 diabetes. Primary endpoints: 1) at least 35% of patients on Plenity achieving ≥5% weight loss and 2) whether individuals receiving Plenity lost 3% or more of their body weight than individuals receiving placebo. The study met and exceeded the categorical endpoint. It did not achieve super-superiority. The percentage of patients who lost ≥5% of body weight was 59%. Individuals on Plenity lost an average 6% vs individuals on placebo who lost on average 4% (P=0.0007).1
