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.
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. They also help patients maintain a reduced weight so it is important to understand that the use of these pharmaceuticals may be a long term solution. Adding medication alone will not lead to sustained weight loss. Regular follow us for medical monitoring and accountability are detrimental to success. A detailed medical history and exam will determine whether these pharmaceuticals are appropriate for you. Our physicians have successfully incorporated both oral and injectable anti-obesity medications.
