Lose Weight with Weight Loss Medications

For many patients struggling with obesity, weight loss medications like FDA-approved prescription appetite suppressants can be a beneficial tool for losing weight when combined with our scientific education.  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. Dr. Thaxton will be able to determine if weight loss medications are a good tool for you.

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.

To ensure that patients remain healthy and lose weight at an appropriate pace, bariatricians continue to perform medical testing and check-ups throughout a weight loss program. Many bariatricians also offer education programs, support groups and maintenance programs that help people keep weight off long-term.

By granting people access to tools like these, obesity medicine can make a dramatic difference in the lives of those struggling with obesity, even other methods of treatment fail.
