Thank you for your question,The FDA has approved some medications that help with weight loss if your BMI is at least 27 or higher. The medication that have been around for a while are phentermine. We use this medication as well as Phendimetrazine these medications have the best results when coupled with a clinician monitored nutrition and exercise plan, as well as some vitamin injections with B-12 and 3 amino acids to help with energy and to burn fat in the belly butt and thighs. It is very important to try and get some sort of support. That support can come from a physician monitored program, or you can let your family and friends know you may need their help. They also have a lot of challenges on social media. If you choose a physician monitored program, it holds you more accountable due to you having to come in weekly for weight & blood pressure check, also you can receive one on one counseling and very helpful tips for when we all get stuck in a rut. You can find a medical professional in your area by searching on the asbp website.
