We offer FDA approved medications for weight loss. All medications are dispensed onsite. Appetite suppressants when used in conjunction with exercise, behavior change, and a customized meal plan can be a very effective way to lose weight and control your appetite.. Losing weight and keeping it off can lessen the many health risks that come with obesity, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancer.
Appetite suppressants can be used for up to 6 months.
Weight loss medications may work by decreasing a person’s appetite, increasing the amount of energy used by the body, or by affecting certain parts of the brain that regulate hunger. Patients who qualify for appetite suppressant treatment will have a thorough assessment that includes an EKG and bloodwork.
We consider appetite suppressants a short-term tactic to add while incorporating positive behavior changes and modifications to the diet. Patients work with a dietitian to get a tailored meal plan. Schedule an appointment with our nurse practitioner to get started.
