Prescription Medications

We strongly encourage making changes to your diet, exercise, and sleeping habits before turning to medication. However, when lifestyle changes haven’t worked and your BMI is 30 or higher, then we recommend a consultation to decide if a medication is right for you.

Phentermine and Tenuate

Appetite suppressants, such as phentermine and tenuate, are stimulants used to curb hunger and help you lose weight.  They basically trick your body into feeling full while stimulating your metabolism.

Although these medications are both used to suppress the appetite, tenuate and phentermine are significantly different on the chemical level so if one has adverse effects, you may benefit from switching to the other. Always keep in mind that everyone reacts differently to these types of medications, so what works for a friend may not work for you.

Due to increased risk of cardiovascular issues such as high blood pressure, stimulants are not recommended for long term treatment. Both of these options require a prescription and the typical dose is ½-1 tablet per day. We offer 1-3 month plans for these medications with a medical exam and annual lab work.


GLP-1 medications suppress the appetite by mimicking a hormone to signal the brain there is food in the stomach. It can also make the stomach empty slower, making you feel full from smaller amounts of food. For most, this is a much safer alternative to stimulants. We offer weekly injections with a medical exam and quarterly lab work.

It’s very important to understand that these medications don’t work on their own. You’re still responsible for continuing to make healthy changes to your eating and exercise habits, but with the extra support of a medically supervised program to guide you.
