Doctor Prescribed Appetite Suppressants

Fight the cravings with a SAFE and EFFECTIVE Doctor prescribed medication.  For many patients who struggle with weight loss, appetite suppressants are prescribed.  Phentermine, Phendimetrazine (Bontril), Diethylpropion (Tenuate), and Phentermine/Topiramate (Qsymia) are available in our office for our patients.

These medications do not cause weight loss. They are prescribed to help you in reducing your caloric intake by reducing your hunger. Weight loss occurs when your caloric expenditure exceeds your caloric intake.  While taking prescription weight loss medications, it is important to begin making small behavioral and lifestyle changes, such as increasing your amount of daily physical activity, in addition to developing healthy eating choices and reducing your caloric intake.  We’ll be there with you providing you with the education and resources necessary for you to be successful.

Vitamin Injections

Why THIN-LIPO, B-6, or B-12 Complex?

A lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver. Lipotropic nutrients are a class of agents that plays an important role in the body’s use of fat. They enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and by speeding up the metabolism and removal of fats. The liver is the key organ in the control of body fat. Even if you do everything right, if your liver is slow to process fats it will slow your weight loss. The lipotropic portion of our Lipo B injections is composed of three amino acids: Choline, Methionine, and Inositol. They help your liver process fats at peak efficiency, making your weight loss faster and easier to maintain.  For these reasons, we recommend weekly THIN-LIPO injections to help you lose weight and keep it off.  After just 4 weeks of injections, you will look and feel healthier and your liver will thank you.

THIN-LIPO Injection:

Vitamin B12 + Lipotropic amino acids: Choline, Methionine, and Inositol
The different ingredients of this mixture are known to have the following attributes:

Aids in proper metabolism of fats and removal of fat from the liver
Provides an energy boost
Boosts your metabolism by helping to digest food faster
Speeds up thought processes and improves mood
Provides essential components for normal cell and brain function
Helps control cholesterol levels and gallstones
Helps emulsify cholesterol and detoxify amines
Helps keep skin tone healthy and nails strong
Promotes healthy hair growth
Helps transform carbohydrates into energy

Vitamin B12:  B12 is used in the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It is involved in making DNA, necessary in the production of new healthy cells. It is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerves and blood cells healthy. B12 lowers homocysteine levels, a protein associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and dementia. It is often used to give an energy boost, helping to increase activity levels. While B12 is found naturally in a healthy diet, factors like stress and poor eating habits can lead to a deficiency.

Our Lipo-B injection utilizes a highly absorbable form of Vitamin B12 called Methylcobalamin. It is felt that this form of B-12 may also be better retained within the body. Methylcobalamin has also been studied in sleep-wake rhythm disorders, where it appears to yield benefits.

Choline: Choline supports the health of the liver, in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body.

Methionine: Methionine is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup within the liver, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue, and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release. Patients with a Sulfa allergy should not take this injection.

Inositol: Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce cholesterol within the blood. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.

Vitamin B-6 Injections:

Vitamin B-6, also known as pyridoxine, assists enzyme reactions in protein and red blood cell metabolism, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements, or ODS. In people consuming low-calorie diets, vitamin B6 aids in blood glucose regulation by helping convert stored nutrients into energy the body can use. This helps increase metabolism. Vitamin B-6 also increases thyroid activity, which increases resting metabolic rate. In amounts near or slightly above the recommended daily allowance, vitamin B-6 can increase energy, support immune system function and improve memory.

Vitamin B12 Injections

Vitamin B-12 is an important nutrient that keeps the brain and nervous system functioning normally and is essential in the formation of red blood cells. It is essential in making DNA, the genetic material in all living cells, and is involved in cellular metabolism. B12 lowers homocysteine levels, a protein that has been associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and dementia.  While B-12 is found naturally in a healthy diet, many medications, certain medical conditions, stress, poor eating habits, and the normal aging process can lead to a B-12 deficiency. The injections should increase your energy level and improve your mood. Many of our patients feel that a weekly injection of Vitamin B-12 gives them the energy necessary to stick with their reduced calorie food plans and increased activity.

You do not need an appointment to receive an injection. If, on your initial doctor’s visit, the physician determines you can take B-12 injections, all you need to do is come by the office during regular business hours.
