Appetite Suppressants (Phentermine, Phendimetrizine, Tenuate)
At SMM, we offer prescription appetite suppressants that can aid in your weight loss goals if you are currently overweight. A full medical history and consultation with one of our providers will help determine the medication and dosage best suited for you. These drugs stimulate the release of chemicals, or neurotransmitters, in the brain. The neurotransmitters whose levels are increased by this drug are norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin. With the increase in the levels of these chemicals in your brain, you feel full and therefore eat less. Over time, this can lead to weight loss, especially if accompanied by a proper diet and exercise. These medications are intended for short term use.
Contrave works on two distinct areas of the brain to reduce hunger and help control cravings.
Contrave targets “emotional eating” whereas traditional appetite suppressants such as
Phentermine aims to control physical hunger. For this reason, Contrave and Phentermine can be taken together for optimal weight loss. Contrave is intended for long-term use in order to maintain the effects of controlled emotional eating. (Prescription Appetite Suppressants)
