Appetite Suppressants Q&A

What are appetite suppressants?

Appetite suppressants can help you lose weight by helping you feel full. They can also work on your brain to reduce hunger pangs, so you eat less food at mealtimes and have less urge to snack in between meals.

Consuming fewer calories supports weight loss, so you can shed excess pounds and achieve a healthy body mass index (BMI). Using appetite suppressants can also help you learn how to recognize when you’re full, so you can make changes that support lifelong weight maintenance.

The Vitality Weight Loss and Wellness Institute team uses only Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved appetite suppressants with a proven track record of healthy weight loss. They don’t provide or recommend using supplements and other over-the-counter marketing gimmicks.

When should I consider appetite suppressants?

Prescription appetite suppressants might be a part of your weight loss plan if you have a BMI greater than 30 and need to lose a lot of weight.

The Vitality Weight Loss and Wellness Institute team might also recommend appetite suppressants if you have a BMI of 27 or higher and also have obesity-related health issues like Type 2 diabetes or hypertension (high blood pressure).

The team reviews your comprehensive medical history and your existing health to determine if you’re a candidate for appetite suppressants. They also assess other medications you take for underlying health conditions that could conflict with weight loss drugs.

How do I use appetite suppressants?

The Vitality Weight Loss and Wellness Institute team provides complete instructions for you to follow when taking appetite suppressants. They determine which appetite suppressants are right for you based on your health and how much weight you need to lose.

Typically, you use the medications in the short term for 12 weeks or less to jumpstart your ability to lose weight. In some cases, people who get good results from appetite suppressants without side effects may be able to use them for longer.

You can expect to schedule follow-up appointments through the online telemedicine platform, so the team can monitor your weight loss progress.
