Phentermine is the most commonly prescribed prescription appetite suppressant currently in use for medical weight loss. Phentermine has been approved by the FDA since 1959 as an appetite suppressant. It works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite. Phentermine should not be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise, but when used in conjunction with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy, phentermine may help with weight loss while learning new ways to eat and exercise.
HCG is a naturally occurring human hormone that can help jumpstart your weight loss journey. Used in combination with a low calorie diet, HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin helps to reset the metabolism and curb appetite to help form healthy eating habits and to make your weight loss more effective. HCG is not for everyone, and we encourage you to come in for a consultation and speak to our medical staff to see if you are a candidate for medically supervised weight loss.
