Appetite Suppressants

Appetite suppressants can be an effective addition to a calorie-controlled diet in helping you lose weight.

Weight loss medication can reduce your appetite, making you feel fuller for longer and less hungry, thereby helping you to eat less food and consequently lose weight. After consultation with your Weightmedics doctor you’ll be advised on the best medication for you.

Phentermine

Phentermine is a centrally-acting appetite suppressant. This means that it works centrally in the appetite center of the brain to give the effect of decreasing your hunger and making you feel fuller for longer.

Diethylpropion

Diethylpropion works in a similar way to Phentermine by decreasing your hunger and making you feel fuller, which will enable you to keep to a reduced calorie diet.

Fat Blockers

Xenical® reduces the absorption of approximately 30% of the fat in a meal, which will then pass through the bowel unabsorbed. It can be a helpful aid in reducing calorie intake as part of a healthy eating plan.

Many of our patients find it useful in reducing the risk of regaining weight already lost.
Xenical® has very few side-effects, most of which are gastrointestinal due to fat passing unabsorbed through the bowel.

Medication to reduce sugar cravings

Chromium is a naturally occurring mineral which helps normalise blood sugar levels and helps to increase lean body mass in overweight patients.

Low chromium levels can result in fluctuating blood sugar levels and result in a lack of energy, sweet cravings and hunger pangs that can contribute to weight gain.

Chromium helps to promote the action of insulin, which is critical to metabolism and the body’s management of carbohydrates, fats and protein. Therefore, taking chromium can help to maintain more steady blood glucose levels and reduce food cravings and hunger pangs.
