Weight Management Program Uses the New FDA Approved Medications!

If you are struggling with excess weight and looking for a safe and effective way to shed some pounds, you might be interested in learning about the new medications that can help you achieve your goals. These medications are not magic pills, but they work by affecting your appetite, metabolism, or absorption of nutrients. They are usually prescribed along with a healthy diet and exercise plan, and they are intended for people who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or 27 or higher with other health problems related to obesity. MyUSADr. Weight management program is a comprehensive program that includes the Safe use of these medications along with Dietary and Exercise guidance by a Doctor to achieve your Goals!

The program includes Telemedicine visits with an experienced physician who safely starts you on appropriate regimen, follows up with you on a regular basis and provides you unlimited support by the doctor for a monthly flat fee of $149.

Some of the new medications that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in recent years are:

  • Semaglutide: This is an injectable medication that mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which helps regulate blood sugar and appetite. It works by slowing down the emptying of your stomach and making you feel full longer. It also reduces the production of glucose in your liver and increases the use of glucose by your muscles. Studies have shown that semaglutide can help people lose an average of 15% of their body weight in a year, compared to 2.4% with a placebo.
  • Liraglutide: This is another injectable medication that also acts like GLP-1, but it has a lower dose and a shorter duration of action than semaglutide. It works in a similar way, but it also has some effects on your brain that may reduce your cravings for food. Studies have shown that liraglutide can help people lose an average of 8% of their body weight in a year, compared to 2.6% with a placebo.
  • Phentermine/topiramate: This is a combination of two oral medications that work together to suppress your appetite and increase your energy expenditure. Phentermine is a stimulant that activates a part of your nervous system that reduces your hunger and makes you feel more alert. Topiramate is an anticonvulsant that has some effects on your brain chemicals that may make you feel less interested in food and more satisfied with smaller portions. Studies have shown that phentermine/topiramate can help people lose an average of 10% of their body weight in a year, compared to 1.2% with a placebo.

These medications are not without side effects, and they may not be suitable for everyone. Some of the common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, headache, dizziness, insomnia, dry mouth, and increased heart rate. Some of the serious side effects include low blood sugar, pancreatitis, gallstones, kidney problems, birth defects, mood changes, and suicidal thoughts. You should consult with your doctor before starting any of these medications, and follow their instructions carefully. You should also monitor your blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart rate regularly while taking these medications.

Remember that these medications are not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. They are only meant to assist you in your weight loss journey, and they may not work for everyone. You should also be aware that you may regain some or all of the weight you lose once you stop taking these medications, unless you maintain your diet and exercise habits. Therefore, it is important to adopt long-term changes in your eating and physical activity patterns that you can sustain for life.
