Medication Assisted Weight Loss Program
In this program, we add FDA approved pharmacotherapy to aid in the patient's weight reduction goals. These agents are classified as anti-obesity medications. They may be a safe and successful tool as adjunct therapy along with one of our dietary plans, which incorporates nutrition, behavior changes and exercise.
Clinical studies show that the use of anti-obesity medication in combination with a supervised nutritional plan leads to significantly more weight loss than either diet or medication alone. It is important to understand that adding medication alone will not lead to sustained weight loss. A detailed medical history and exam will determine whether these pharmaceuticals are appropriate for you.
