FDA Approved Weight Loss Drugs


Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite.

The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, and appetite.

Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, you will receive a personalized reduced-calorie diet plan to lose the weight, and knowledge for long-term lifestyle strategies to prevent the lost weight from returning.

With the Phentermine Monthly Program, you will be given a four week supply of Oral capsules of phentermine 37.5 mg Hydrochloride (HCL) for weight loss. Phentermine is in the Sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants to be used for short-term management of obesity. You will also get your initial office visit and, two weeks later, a follow-up office visit included in your program.

This powerful appetite suppressant will give you the control you need along with a lifestyle diet plan to reach your weight loss goal.
