Stop fighting cravings, emotional eating, or a slow metabolism - our program offers state-of-the-art weight loss medications that fight hunger and re-train your body to manage the obstacles that hold you back.
Appetite suppressants are generally most effective class of weight loss medication. Medical diet pills can be stimulants or non-stimulants, but are all generally designed to reduce your feelings of hunger.
When used alone, weight loss medication can usually produce only modest and temporary weight loss results. If used without medical monitoring, diet pills can even cause unpleasant or dangerous results. However, FDA approved weight loss medication can produce safe weight loss when combined with medical monitoring, diet, exercise, and behavior modification.
Prescription appetite suppressants can help you to feel full while making the weight loss process easier. Prescription weight loss medications can help you get started on your weight loss journey, helping you lose the first or last bit of weight that is often the most difficult to burn.
Prescription appetite suppressants are recommended for patients with a body mass index or BMI of 30 or above. Patients with a BMI slightly below 30 who are suffering from obesity-related diseases like type 2 diabetes or heart disease are often considered eligible for weight loss medication as well.

Appetite suppressants work by affecting the chemicals in your brain to help you feel full. While taking prescription weight loss medication, it is important that you begin to make the mind and lifestyle changes we teach that are necessary for long-term weight loss success.
