Appetite suppressants are medications prescribed by medical weight loss doctors to provide additional support to obese and overweight individuals having difficulty losing weight. Appetite suppressant medications help you cut calories by reducing your appetite to a point where it is easier to control. Dr. Jain prescribes appetite suppressants as part of the MediSlim medical weight loss program to help patients lose weight and become healthier.

If you are struggling to lose weight, then the MediSlim medical weight loss program can help you to finally reach your weight loss goal. Dr. Jain will determine if appetite suppressants are beneficial for your weight loss plan and prescribe them if needed. Appetite suppressants offered by Dr. Jain and MediSlim include phentermine, phendimetrazine, diethylpropion.

  • Phentermine: Phentermine has been approved as an appetite suppressant to treat obesity by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) since 1959. Phentermine works by affecting neurotransmitters in your brain and stimulating the hypothalamus to decrease your appetite level. Together with a healthy diet and increased exercise levels, phentermine can help you to lose weight. Phentermine is often recommended to be taken in the morning prior to breakfast for ideal results. If Dr. Jain determines that phentermine would be a beneficial component to your weight loss efforts, then he will explain the correct dosage and instructions for your usage.
  • Phendimetrazine: Phendimetrazine is an appetite suppressant that is recommended for short-term use in the treatment of obesity in conjunction with healthy dietary habits and increased exercise. Phendimetrazine works by stimulating the central nervous system, which includes the nerves and the brain. This increases the heart rate, increases blood pressure, and decreases the appetite. Due to the nature in which Phendimetrazine works it is only recommended for use by those that are in good health. Dr. Jain will determine if phendimetrazine is a beneficial tool for you as you work towards meeting your weight loss goals.
  • Diethylpropion: Diethylpropion suppresses the appetite by stimulating the metabolism, altering serotonin levels and activating a chemical messenger in the brain that prevents hunger. When used in combination with decreased calorie intake and increased exercise levels, diethylpropion can help enhance weight loss efforts. Dr. Jain will determine if Diethylpropion would be beneficial as a part of your medical weight loss program, and if so will provide you with further insight concerning dosage levels and instructions.
