There are a lot of tools to help people lose weight, and it can be hard to figure out which is right for you. One of those tools is appetite suppressants, which can be a powerful weight-loss tool— if used properly. At Premier Medical Weight Loss we know how important it is to keep yourself healthy when you’re trying to lose weight, so we want to tell you all about the different kinds of appetite suppressants today.
Overeating is one of the main causes of obesity, and appetite suppressants are designed to combat this by reducing your desire to eat. They can do this either by stimulating your nervous system, or by increasing the amount of certain chemicals in your body such as Serotonin. Appetite suppressants can result in increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, and significantly reduced appetite. They can help the body feel ‘full’ faster and make that feeling last longer. Like most medications, appetite suppressants come in both over-the-counter and prescription forms.
The biggest difference between over-the-counter and prescription appetite suppressants is that only prescription suppressants have been approved by the FDA. Only prescription appetite suppressants are proven to work and have had their side-effects and interactions with other drugs studied and documented.
If you’re serious about losing weight and doing it safely, it’s always best to use a prescription appetite suppressant instead of an over-the-counter counterpart. In terms of effectiveness, only these kinds of suppressants have been confirmed to actually help you lose weight. It’s also important when it comes to safety, because over-the-counter appetite suppressants had had their side-effects studied. Finally, your doctor is likely to know how the suppressant they prescribe you works with other drugs, so you can have professional advice as you try to lose weight.
In the end, appetite suppressants can be a powerful tool to help you lose weight in a healthy way, but only if you use them safely. Thankfully, the dedicated professionals at Premier Medical Weight Loss are happy to help you find your best weight loss plan possible. All you have to do is come in for a consultation, and we can help you figure out if appetite suppressants are right for you, and which ones will work best.
