Prescription Weight Loss Medications
FDA-Approved Appetite Suppressants.
The Role of Appetite Suppressants
Appetite suppressants can play a significant role when patients experience a slowdown of weight loss or begin to regain lost weight. These medications act to both decrease appetite and increase basal metabolic rate (BMR). The use of appetite suppressants can offset the effects of the neuropeptides that tend to favor weight gain. Phentermine, Phendimetrazine and Diethylpropion are all FDA-approved and work as part of a healthy diet plan to shed unwanted pounds.
Consult Phentermine Doctor For Weight Loss
Phentermine is the most commonly used appetite suppressant. It is a medication that increases metabolism and reduces hunger. The Phentermine diet pill stimulates the hypothalamus gland and affects certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite
Phendimetrazine For Weight Loss
Phendimetrazine is a more potent medication that reduces appetite and increases metabolism. It works by stimulating the central nervous system to increase heart rate and blood pressure while decreasing appetite. Conclusion Appetite suppressants can be a useful adjunct to surgery in the long-term management of obesity. When patients fail to lose the expected amount of weight, or start regaining weight, assessing for uncontrolled hunger is essential. Our Medical staff will do a thorough assessment of past medical history and will direct the proper choice of appetite suppressants. All FDA Approved appetite suppressants work best in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program.
Diethylpropion For Weight Loss
Diethylpropion, has a shorter half-life than phentermine and, therefore, can be used later in the day with less effect on sleep. Available in regular and extended-release tablets.
Phentermine/Topiramate combines the FDA appetite suppressant phentermine with topiramate to offer patients long term appetite control. Phentermine reduces hunger by stimulating the hypothalamus to release neurotransmitters. Topiramate is generic for Topamax. Topiramate has a variety of uses including migraine management and as an anticonvulsant. When topiramate is combined with phentermine, appetite control can be extended throughout the day and offer patients better satiety to decrease caloric intake.
