Contact us about our Rapid Weight Loss Program and schedule your FREE Consultation to get started today! FDA Disclaimer: This weight reduction treatment includes the use of a hormone, a drug which has not been approved by the FDA as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that this hormone increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie restricted diets. These services provided by Richard Huskey M.D. and Natalie Ryan PA-C

3 Lifestyle Change Program 1. Appetite Suppressant (Phentermine) How does Phentermine Work? There are many drugs for obesity that have come and gone, but only a few have stood the test of time. Phentermine is one that has been around since the 1950s. It has gone by its generic name of Phentermine, but also under many different brand names as a drug on its own or as part of a combination used to treat obesity. Though many of these combinations have come and gone, Phentermine has stood out as a safe and useful drug for weight loss. The answer to the question how does Phentermine work is actually a very simple one. One of the biggest problems a dieter faces when trying to lose weight is overeating. There are many reasons why people do this. Some are emotional eaters. This means they eat to soothe feelings that they do not know how to handle otherwise. There are others that overeat because they have insulin problems that cause huge surges and drops in blood sugar. When these drops occur, the body tells itself that more glucose is needed so more food needs to be ingested. The answer to how does Phentermine work lies in the quest to figure out how to stop such people from eating too much food and gaining more weight. How does Phentermine work? It goes straight to the source of the problem within the brain that regulates hunger and what the body does when it thinks that it needs more food. This drug goes to the hypothalamus part of the brain to tell it to stop sending out hunger signals. Essentially, it releases nor-epinephrine, a neurotransmitter that will tell the brain food is not needed by triggering what is known as the 'flight or fight' response. Many times, those who are obese are getting hunger signals for reasons other than a real need for food. This allows a dieter to have more control over what they eat and it may also encourage them to more forward with other aspects of weight loss like exercise and better food choices over all.

4 How Phentermine works can also be answered by explaining that this drug triggers the release of small amounts of adrenaline and epinephrine in the brain. When this happens, the body can begin to breakdown stored fat reserves and may trigger small surges in metabolism. Those things can help, but are not the reason that people rely on Phentermine when they want help controlling hunger so they can lose weight. Frequently Asked Questions How overweight do I have to be in order to be on the Appetite Suppressant Diet? Our medical providers will look at your BMI (Body Mass Index) to determine if you qualify to take the appetite suppressant. As a general rule, your BMI should be about 25 in order to take the appetite suppressants. Does the price include the appetite suppressant? Yes. A 30-day supply of medication will be dispensed from the office at your visits. What if I am currently taking medications for health issues I have? Can I still take the appetite suppressant? Our medical providers will fully assess your health conditions at your initial visit. In general, if your health conditions are stable and controlled by medication, you can take an appetite suppressant. Cardiovascular conditions and appetite suppressants are usually not a good fit. Therefore, Phentermine (Adipex-P) are not indicated for use in a patient who has one or more of the following medical conditions: Advanced arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) Cardiovascular disease (heart disease) Uncontrolled moderate to severe hypertension (a blood pressure that is not well controlled) Glaucoma Pregnancy Nursing mothers Is the appetite suppressant safe to use? Yes! You will be monitored by our medical providers the entire time you are taking the appetite suppressant. As with all medications, there are risk factors involved. Any risk factors will be discussed with you at your initial visit.
