FDA approved drugs may be prescribed based on clinical need. They work most effectively with a comprehensive weight loss program. You will be closely monitored during your treatment, receiving dietary guidance, medical supervision, accountability weight checks, and mindfulness support.
Prescription weight loss medications like Phentermine, Qsymia®, Contrave®, Saxenda®, and Belviq® may be recommended based on clinical need to help you regulate your appetite. Insurance coverage varies on these medications, depending on your plan.
Prescription weight loss medications may be considered if your BMI is 30 or more, or if your BMI is 27 – 29 and you have 1 or more weight related conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. If you meet these requirements, weight loss medications may be used to help reduce severe hunger, cravings, binging, and portion control making it easier to stay on plan and successfully lose weight.
You may also consider natural, non-prescription appetite suppressants which can reduce hunger and make it easier to follow your healthy eating plan.
