Semaglutide is an injectable medication used for weight loss. It works by mimicking the effects of the hormone GLP-1, which helps to control appetite and increase feelings of fullness. By increasing the levels of GLP-1 in the body, Semaglutide helps to reduce the amount of food consumed and promote weight loss. It is typically used in people who have Type 2 Diabetes or have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, and should be used in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and regular physical activity.  Semaglutide is administered via subcutaneous injection once per week.

-How much weight can I lose?


Depending on the patient, a healthy weight loss range would typically fall around 10-12lbs per month. However, results vary patient to patient.

-What are the benefits of Semaglutide?


Appetite suppression by slowing gastric emptying, decrease in body fat percentage, Weight loss, decreased risk of cardiovascular disease, and lower HbA1c levels. Studies have shown that people who reach their weight loss goals have lower depression symptoms and increased self-esteem. 

Phentermine

Phentermine (Adipex-P, Lomaira) is a stimulant used to help decrease your appetite. Phentermine is one of the most prescribed weight-loss medicines. But it isn't a good choice for people with heart disease, high blood pressure, an overactive thyroid gland or glaucoma. It also isn't for people who are pregnant, may become pregnant or are breastfeeding.

Tesofensine

-What is Tesofensine?

Tesofensine is a Serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine-reuptake-inhibitor (SNDRI). SNDRIs are a class of psychoactive antidepressants. Tesofensine works by blocking the reuptake of three neurotransmitters – dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin – in the brain, which leads to increased levels of these neurotransmitters in the brain. The potential advantages of tesofensine include increased satiety, decreased food intake, and improved weight loss outcomes.

-What are the Benefits of Tesofensine?

  • Tesofensine benefits include weight loss, fat loss, increased energy levels, improved sex drive, better erections, improved mood, improved memory, improved concentration, better sleep, and better blood glucose levels by improving insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism. Tesofensine causes a significant increase in weight loss and fat loss by reducing appetite, increasing resting energy expenditure (ie increasing metabolism and calories burned), increasing fat oxidation, and reducing fat tissue.

 

Tesofensine has undergone several clinical trials for obesity and has shown promising results in terms of weight loss. Additionally, Tesofensine has been studied as a potential treatment for other conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Tesofensine is taken orally once a day before meals with or without food.

Tirzepatide

-What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. It works by regulating insulin and glucagon, leading to reduced appetite, delayed gastric emptying, and improved glucose control, all contributing to weight loss. It is known to have less nausea side effects than Semaglutide and studies have shown that patients on Tirzepatide have lost more weight than patients on Semaglutide. Tirzepatide is administered via subcutaneous injection once per week.

-How much weight can I lose on Tirzepatide?

Each patient's results will vary. The amount of weight loss depends on duration of treatment.  The average patient can expect to lose up to 30 pounds in the first three months of treatment, and about 50 pounds after 6 months.
