Weight Loss Medications Q&A

What are weight-loss medications?

Weight-loss medications are prescriptions that help you reduce your body mass and eliminate unwanted fat. Diet and exercise build the foundation for healthy weight loss, but they’re not always enough. Slow metabolism, chronic diseases, and certain medications can make losing weight difficult. Weight-loss medications may help improve your progress.

How do weight-loss medications work?

Most prescription weight-loss medications decrease appetite and increase satiety — your ability to feel full. These medications don’t replace a healthy diet and exercise. They help you stay fuller for longer to decrease your overall caloric intake.

At My True Image, the team also offers vitamin injections. Vitamin B-12 injections may help boost your metabolism and increase your energy levels to accelerate weight loss. When part of a comprehensive dietary plan that includes regular exercise and nutritional counseling, weight-loss medications can help you reach a healthy weight faster.

Who is a candidate for weight loss medications?

The team at My True Image may recommend weight-loss medications if you:

  • Have a BMI above 30
  • Are between ages 18 and 64
  • Have struggled with weight management for several years
  • Have a chronic disease, such as diabetes or hypertension
  • Are in generally good health
  • Have a BMI over 27 and a chronic disease

Weight-loss medications aren’t for everyone. The team performs comprehensive testing through a medical history review, physical exam, and blood work to determine whether prescription medications can help you lose weight.

What can I expect from weight-loss medications?

Once the team gathers enough information to create your personalized weight-loss plan, they can recommend the appropriate prescription for your needs and goals. Some medications are oral tablets you take daily, while others are injectable prescriptions your doctor must administer.

The team offers several vitamin injections and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) treatments to curb your appetite and keep you feeling fuller for longer. 

Your provider ensures you have detailed instructions on taking your medications. The team works with you to ensure maximum results from your weight-loss plan.
