At My Weight Doctor®, we believe in utilizing every available medical tool to deal with weight loss and the maintenance of weight loss. For many patients, Appetite Suppressants and other weight control medications are included when medically appropriate.
The My Weight Doctor® program has been researched since 1990 and involves the use of FDA approved medications. These are fully endorsed medications. Most people have little or no side effects. They are not amphetamines and are generally non-addictive. They actually enhance the body's natural inclination to be thin and healthy.
The weight loss medications that we use work by attacking different aspects of the brain chemical imbalance that leads to obesity. Over the short term, weight loss in individuals who are obese may reduce a number of health risks. Studies have found that weight loss with some medications improves blood pressure, blood cholesterol, triglycerides (fats), and insulin resistance (the body’s inability to use blood sugar).
New research suggests that long-term use of weight-loss medications may help individuals keep off the weight they have lost. Appetite-suppressant medications promote weight loss by decreasing appetite or increasing the sensation of fullness. These medications work in the brain to increase dopamine and norepinephrine production in the hypothalamus, thereby decreasing hunger and stopping food cravings.
The main function of Appetite Suppressants is to do exactly as their name indicates; they suppress appetites, by convincing your brain that you are full and therefore have no desire to eat. Of all the diet pills and so called miracle drugs on the market, Appetite Suppressants are the most effective.
My Weight Doctor® uses FDA-approved appetite suppressants (known as Anorectics) which have been proven to be effective in the aid for weight loss in clinical testing, and can only be purchased with a prescription from a doctor. Although Appetite Suppressants are successful in helping people who suffer from obesity, our doctors recommend their patients to also follow a balanced diet and get plenty of exercise and rest.
The prescription medication therapies are administered as a whole, not just as a drug therapy program. They work best when combined with the Nutritional and Exercise Therapies. Our medical staff will inform you and prescribe the right weight management medications for the safest and fasted weight loss.
