The use of prescription, medically supervised weight loss is one of the tools Synergistic Health Centers will use to help patients achieve overall healthy weight management goals. The Synergistic Approach is a comprehensive strategy that incorporates prescriptions such as Xenical and Qsymia.
Prescriptions are almost never used as the primary means of weight loss, nor should they be considered a long-term solution to weight management. Prescriptions can help as part of a synergistic weight loss program to lose weight and a healthy and responsible way.
Typically, weight loss drugs work as an appetite suppressant. They work by mitigating the feelings of hunger. These drugs come in the form of tablets or time-release capsules. One of the most common appetite suppressants is phentermine which is used in the brand Qsymia. Qsymia also includes a drug that increases the feelings of fullness.
Fat Absorption Blockers
There are other weight loss drugs know as fat absorption inhibitors. They work by preventing your body from breaking down and absorbing fat eaten with your meals. One such prescription medication is known as Orlistat. This drug works by blocking about 30% of dietary fat from being absorbed. Orlistate is available as a prescription in the commonly known brand Xenical.
