Prescriptive, Medical Weight Loss
Phentermine, also known as generic Adipex, is a well-established medication that has been successfully used to treat obesity for almost 60 years. It was approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in 1959. Since that time, it has helped millions achieve their health and fitness goals.
How it works: Phentermine is an appetite suppressant, meaning it decreases the sensation of hunger, cravings, and binge eating. However, it is also a Central Nervous System stimulant, meaning it helps to increase energy level.
We offer phentermine tablets, as well as, phentermine capsules and the primary difference between the two is that tablets are more immediate-release, whereas capsules are more time or delayed-release.

What to Expect: For your initial visit, you will need to schedule an appointment with our office. Upon arriving for your appointment, you will have a little paperwork to complete and then you will have your consultation with our Nurse Practitioner who will use her discretion (based on the FDA recommendations for treating obesity) to determine if phentermine is a safe and good option for you. She will carefully screen you by evaluating your past medical history, any current medications you take, your vital signs, and your body mass index (BMI). You are not a good candidate for phentermine if you have uncontrolled hypertension, glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, a history of heart attack and/or stroke, irregular heartbeat, are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you take a medication of the MAOI class.
Phentermine is not a simple or quick fix to being overweight. However, it is intended to assist you in the initial phases of your weight loss regimen that includes incorporating healthier nutrition and lifestyle habits. It is our mission to help you achieve your health and weight loss goals through the use of nutritional counseling, fitness education, accountability, and continuous support.
*For follow-up visits, no appointment is necessary; it is only the initial consultation that requires a scheduled appointment.
