Appetite Suppressant Q & A

What is an appetite suppressant?

An appetite suppressant is a medication that reduces your appetite to help you lose weight. When you lower your daily calorie intake, your body begins burning stored fat for energy. Controlling your appetite helps you lose weight at a healthy, steady pace.

The team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss offers several types of medications to suppress your appetite, including phentermine (ADIPEX-P®) and phendimetrazine. These medications are amphetamine derivatives and have the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in medically supervised weight-loss programs.


When should I consider using an appetite suppressant?

The NuvidaRx Weight Loss team may recommend an appetite suppressant as part of your weight-loss program if you have a body mass index (BMI) over 30 or if you have a diagnosis of morbid obesity.

By using an appetite suppressant, you can safely lose a significant amount of weight and reduce your risk factors for obesity-related health complications, including heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

You may not be a candidate for an appetite suppressant if you have existing health issues, such as uncontrolled high blood pressure or a history of heart issues, like an abnormal heart rhythm, valve disorder, or coronary artery disease.


Are appetite suppressants safe?

While another type of amphetamine derivative is methamphetamine, an unhealthy and illegal substance, phentermine and other appetite suppressants the NuvidaRx Weight Loss team uses are safe under medical supervision and have a low risk for addiction.

While appetite suppressants can help you lose a significant amount of weight, you can also expect to lose some muscle, too. Your NuvidaRx Weight Loss provider works with you to modify your diet to continue burning fat and gain muscle to transform your overall body composition.


What can I expect during my weight-loss program?

In addition to using an appetite suppressant, your NuvidaRx Weight Loss provider also includes a customized meal plan and lipotropic injections to support your weight-loss goals.

Lipotropic injections contain substances that help promote the breakdown of fat through your body’s natural metabolism. These injections also support the removal of excess fat by your liver.

As you continue to exercise and eat properly, your body keeps burning excess fat for energy rather than storing it in your body.
