Brief Answer:
exercise.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
There are no medically prescribed medicines for obesity. All the over counter drugs available have very bad side effects. Only safest way to reduce weight is to do good work out and have balanced diet. Some times even with no change of diet sedentary lifestyle with less physical activity will lead to obesity.

Any query do get back.

Take care.
