If you suffer from serious health conditions because of your weight and have not seen significant results with regular diet and exercise, prescription weight loss medications may be a practical option. At Total HealthcareMD, our health professionals will meet with you to determine if prescription weight loss is the right choice for your specific needs. Here are some more details on our prescription weight loss program.
Prescription Weight Loss Medications Are Not A Cure All
Often times, weight loss patients make the mistake of believing that prescription weight loss medications alone can cure their weight issues. It’s important to understand that prescription weight loss medications are not magic and must be combined with improved diet and physical activity. If you are prescribed a weight loss medication, you must stay persistent with regular exercise and healthy eating habits in order to maintain your weight over the long term.
Types Of Prescription Weight Loss Drugs We Use
Total HealthcareMD will only prescribe medications that have been FDA Approved and have a long standing proven track record of success and safety. Because our patients’ health and well being are our number one priority, each new patient must undergo a thorough physical exam which will then be evaluated by one of our highly trained medical providers. The medical provider will determine if the patient is a viable candidate to begin a prescription medication regime and which medication is best to use to help with the weight loss process. The patient’s progress will then be closely monitored each week by our medical provider and our registered dietitian to determine the best strategy for obtaining weight loss and wellness goals in the safest way possible.
We Do Not Use Over The Counter Medications
Total HealthcareMD patients are not and will never be encouraged to use over the counter weight loss medications. Most over the counter weight loss medications can have unpleasant side effects such as loose stools and other bowel movement changes, stomach pain, anxiety, headaches, and possible menstrual cycle changes. Our healthcare professionals only prescribe FDA Approved medications that should minimize or eliminate any possible unpleasant side effects. If an unpleasant side effect does occur from one of our prescribed medications, our trained staff will assist with ways to eliminate the possible problem.
