Medication Programs for Weight Loss
Our mission is to help transform lives through weight loss, and we’re very proud of our track record. Over the years, we’ve helped so many people establish healthy eating habits and incorporate exercise into their daily routines. But because we’ve been there ourselves, we know that sometimes diet and exercise alone aren’t enough. As part of our mission to transform lives, we offer our clients two medication programs to help maximize their results. We have a standard medication program, as well as an advanced medication program. You can read about the differences between the two programs below.
Our staff are trained and experienced in providing professional medical supervision and counseling. If you have questions about our programs or want to know if taking a medication would be right for you, contact one of our medical professionals today at our Kingsport or Bristol location.
Advanced Medication Program - Qsymia
Qsymia is the combination of two generic medications. One half of the drug is composed of the medication topiramate, which is known to cause weight loss in several ways. Topiramate increases feelings of fullness, makes foods taste less appealing, and increases the rate of burning calories. The other half of Qsymia is the appetite-suppressant Phentermine. Phentermine is thought to suppress the appetite by triggering the release of a brain chemical that increases blood concentrations of the appetite-regulating hormone leptin.
Standard Medication Program
For our standard medication program, we administer Oral Phentermine Hydrochloride (or HCL). HCL is a prescription appetite suppressant used for short-term weight loss management. When used in conjunction with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy, HCL may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat healthier and exercise regularly.
To participate in our standard medication program, you will need to have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30% or greater. You may also participate in this program if you have a BMI greater than 27% with at least one co-morbidity factor. Those with a BMI of 26% or less may not be eligible for this program. All new participants of our standard and advanced medication programs must consult with our doctor or your physicians assistant.
How to Use Oral Phentermine Hydrochloride (HCL)
For many of our clients, the most optimal time of day to take HCL is once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Generally speaking, we suggest that you take your first capsule at 9AM and the second around 2PM. These intervals have shown to offer the most protection from hunger cravings, which usually start before dinner and can last until bedtime.
