Do you have health problems due to your weight? If you are struggling to lose weight through diet and exercise, prescription weight loss medication may be an option for you. It is typically considered for adults with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30 who are struggling with obesity, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
Quintessence Health & Wellness now offers treatment programs that incorporate prescription medications for weight loss.
We do not prescribe controlled substances (such as Qsymia, Adipex and Phentermine).
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved injectable prescription medicine used for adults with obesity (BMI >=30), or who are overweight (BMI >=27) and also have weight-related medical problems. This medication, in conjunction with increased physical activity and a reduced calorie meal plan, can help patients lose weight and keep the weight off. Some patients may begin seeing results after the first month.
Weight loss medications may be part of a weight loss program and work best when combined with lifestyle changes. Weight loss medications may jump start your weight loss when used in conjunction with a nutrition treatment plan, behavioral modifications, and exercise.
Most weight loss occurs within the first 6 months of starting the weight loss medication. The time it takes for you to see results can vary significantly depending on your health, exercise, and nutrition.
This depends on the medication you are taking. If you do not lose at least 5% of your starting body weight after 12 weeks on the full dose of your medication, your provider will work with you to discuss modifying your diet or treatment. Once you have lost enough weight to improve your health and haven’t had serious side effects, your provider will advise if you should continue or stop taking the medication.
Your BMI (body mass index) will help us to determine if prescription medication for weight loss is a viable option for you.
