The appetite suppressants program
After a medical evaluation, we will discuss the possibility based on your medical condition whether this is for you. Prescription appetite suppressants can be used to reduce hunger and appetite, reduce thoughts of food, and make you feel less hungry. They can help you to adhere to your plan. The benefits and risks of the medication will be discussed and you will be fully informed with the type and strength of any prescription medication. We do dispense medication in our office.
Will I gain the weight back?
Most patients who adhere to the lifestyle changes of proper food choices, exercise and behavior modification can keep their weight in check. Medications have been shown to be safe and effective for weight maintenance as well as weight loss. We recommend gradual tapering off medications after you reach your target weight
What are the risks with remaining overweight?
There is many health risks related to overweight or obesity; among these risks are high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and certain cancers, etc. These risks may be avoided if you are not very overweight. Even if you don’t need to lose much, the cosmetic and psychological benefits can be very rewarding. If you are extremely overweight (50 + pounds) a reduction by only 10 percent of your starting weight can reduce your health risks.
Are children treated in the office?
No, we only treat individuals ages 16 (with parental consent) and over.
