FAQ’s


Are appetite suppressants 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.

What if I am currently taking medications for health issues I have? Can I still take appetite suppressants?

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)
* Gaucoma
* Pregnancy
* Nursing mothers

Does the price include the appetite suppressants?

Yes. A 30-day supply of medication will be dispensed from the office at your visits.

How overweight do I have to be in order to be on Appetite Suppressants?

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.
