I use a variety of medications as an adjunct to diet and exercise. These medications include Belviq, Contrave, Qsymia, Phentermine, Phendimetrazine, Topiramate, Trokendi, Metformin among others. It is important to remember that the medications alone will not make you lose weight. Their purpose is to help control appetite, giving the patient a chance to focus on diet, eating behaviors and lifestyle.
Phentermine has been used since the 1950’s. It is a safe medication and works well. There is a lot of safety data in the medical literature. Even though medications play an important role by controlling appetite, lifestyle change remains “the star of the show.”
At the first visit, I provide a written prescription with the option of purchasing the medications through our office or at your nearest pharmacy. I offer on-site dispensing of medications for patient convenience. Save gas, time and money by purchasing medications at the time of your visit.
