Weight loss Medication

Millions of dollars are spent every year on weight loss supplements.  Our practice prescribes FDA approved weight loss medications to be used in conjunction with sensible eating and increased physical activity.  There are currently 14 different prescription medications that are commonly used to promote weight loss in those who meet appropriate criteria.  There is no one medication or combination of medications that helps everyone. Treating Obesity is similar to treating other diseases such as Hypertension, Diabetes or Depression.  Everyone's body reacts differently to certain medicines and what is effective for one person, may not work for another.  We work with the individual to find the best medication or medications based on medical history and experience. 


The goal is to find the best medical treatment with a minimum of side effects.
