4. Appetite Suppressants
Appetite suppressants are a type of medication that work by reducing feelings of hunger and increasing feelings of fullness. They can be used as part of a weight management program in individuals who are struggling to control their appetite and lose weight through diet and exercise alone. Some appetite suppressants work by mimicking the effects of certain hormones, such as norepinephrine and serotonin, which regulate appetite. These medications can reduce food intake by increasing feelings of fullness and reducing cravings. Other appetite suppressants work by blocking the absorption of certain nutrients, such as fat, which can reduce calorie intake. We commonly use Semaglutide, Tirzepatide, Liraglutide, Bupropion/Naltrexone, Phentermine, and Phentermine/Topiramate for appetite suppressants. Additionally, lifestyle changes, such as adopting a healthy diet and engaging in regular physical activity, should be incorporated into a weight management program for the best results.
