Does Medical Weight Loss Really Work?

There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to weight loss. The answer is not just black or white. We would all be at our ideal weight if it was that simple! At The Aspen Clinic serving Louisiana, we have many programs to try and fit the mold that will be right for you, and that mold just might be medical weight loss. But, how do we know that medical weight loss actually works? 

Medical Weight Loss At The Aspen Clinic

The Aspen Clinic has helped many people lose weight by focusing on long-term positive lifestyle changes. Because there are many nutritional and health factors that accompany lifestyle changes and healthy weight loss for women and men, we find it best to have a qualified physician review our client’s personal information and analyze their nutritional needs.

Oftentimes, medication is used to help assist the lifestyle changes to aid in weight loss. Of course, this medication needs to be monitored closely.

This medication, like all medicine, is tightly controlled. We strongly recommend that you consult with your primary care physician regarding our weight loss clinic program and any health conditions and/or medications that you may be currently taking.

If taking other medications that contradict appetite suppressants, or you simply do not want to take medication to assist with weight loss, we do offer an all natural program that is just as effective!

Here is a list of the most common and effective weight loss medications: 

  • Adipex – P 37.5mg
  • Phentermine 30mg
  • Didrex 50mg
  • Generic Didrex 50mg
  • Tenuate 75mg
  • Tenuate 25mg
  • Bontril 105mg
  • Generic Bontril 105mg
  • Phendimetrazine 35mg
  • Lomaira 8 mg
  • Contrave
  • Belviq
  • Qysmia

An important thing to remember is that there is no magic pill for weight loss. The medication is to aid in the weight loss process, NOT to do all the work for you. The purpose of the medication is to suppress appetite, which aids in weight loss while you adjust to a new lifestyle of eating. If you take the medication and don’t adjust your lifestyle and eating habits, then you will not see the results on the scale. The most important thing for weight loss will always be to focus on cleaning up your unhealthy lifestyle habits.
