Can diet and medications work for appetite suppression in Prader-Willi Syndrome?

Unfortunately, no appetite suppressant has worked consistently for people with PWS, but there are currently some promising drug studies. Most require an extremely low-calorie diet all their lives and must have their environment designed so that they have very limited access to food. For example, many families have to lock the kitchen or the cabinets and refrigerator. As adults, most affected individuals can control their weight best in a supportive living home designed specifically for people with PWS, where food access can be restricted without interfering with the rights of those who don’t need such restriction.
