Prescription weight-loss drugs work in one of two ways. They can suppress your appetite and increase your metabolism by altering the activity of chemical brain messengers called neurotransmitters. Drugs that do this include phentermine. The second type of weight-loss drug reduces the body’s ability to absorb fat. Dr. Nichols will look at your specific situation and determine which type may be best for you, taking into account your medical history and the potential side effects and interactions of each drug.
However, prescription weight-loss drugs are not magical potions. We recommend they be used in conjunction with behavior modification and nutritional counseling so that you can make long-term changes in your diet and activity patterns. You’ll also need to see visit Dr. Nichols regularly. Studies indicate if you don’t lose four pounds in four weeks, it is unlikely the drug will contribute to significant weight loss.
Columbus weight-loss drugs can only be effective when used along with a structured diet and exercise program. Keeping the weight off requires a healthy change in daily life for the long term. If you don’t make lifestyle changes, the weight will return
