The medication will work as an appetite suppressant. It contains the active ingredient Liraglutide, which is a Glucogon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue. GLP-1 is produced naturally in the human body after food is consumed. Liraglutide is 97% similar to the one our body naturally produces. The medication  tells your body that you are full and no more food is required. The medication is a virtually painless injection. It then makes you feel less hungry, feel fuller quicker and fuller for longer. This should lead to significant weight loss.
