Supportive, Medical Weight Loss Guidance with Options to Fit Your Lifestyle

Exercise is a vital part of weight loss – we all know this. Your doctor can talk with you about all kinds of exercise, such as taking the stairs or parking further away from the entrance at the grocery store to increase your activity level, every day. Trips to the gym are great and are highly recommended, but keeping the body in motion as much as possible is the key!


Weight Loss Medications

While the best way to lose weight is through a consistent routine of healthy diet and exercise, medications may sometimes be used to help reach a goal weight. The benefits of the medication are replaced over time by learned exercise and eating habits.

You should only take medications that your doctor recommends. While the FDA monitors all medications for safety on an ongoing basis, over-the-counter weight loss medications do not undergo the strict standards of testing that prescription medications are subject to.

Most over-the-counter weight loss medications just plain don't work. And, the main risks of taking medications without doctor supervision is that they may contain ingredients that interact adversely with other medications you may be taking or, create complications with a medical condition you may have.


Supervised weight loss medications that your doctor may recommend include:

  • Appetite Suppressants
  • Lipotropic and hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) Injections
