We Prescribe

At ModernWeigh, we can prescribe a diverse range of weight loss medications. Take our quiz to find out which medication is right for you.

GLP-1 Medications

Summary: GLP-1 medications are a breakthrough group in the weight loss field, helping patients manage their hunger effectively and supporting their body’s blood sugar control, leading to a more balanced food intake.

Mechanism: These drugs imitate a natural hormone called GLP-1. This hormone is released after eating and communicates with the brain to signal satisfaction and fullness. At the same time, it plays a crucial role in managing how our body uses sugars, ensuring a more stable blood sugar level.

Other Medications

Contrave (bupropion + naltrexone)

Summary: Contrave works on two fronts: it controls hunger and curbs cravings, making it easier for you to stick to a healthy eating plan.

Mechanism: Contrave is a combination of two medications: naltrexone, typically used to manage addiction, and bupropion, an antidepressant. These two work in tandem on the brain, reducing hunger and curbing food cravings by influencing neurotransmitter levels and neural pathways associated with appetite and reward.

Phentermine

Summary: Phentermine is a well-established weight management medication that has been used since 1959. It is primarily used for short-term weight reduction.

Mechanism: Phentermine is an appetite suppressant. It acts on the central nervous system, influencing neurotransmitters to reduce appetite and subsequently calorie intake.

Qsymia (phentermine + topiramate)

Summary: Qsymia combines the powers of two medications, giving you a dual advantage. It not only keeps hunger pains at bay but also makes you feel satisfied with less food.

Mechanism: Qsymia combines phentermine, which stimulates the brain to decrease appetite, with topiramate, a drug that enhances the feeling of fullness. This two-pronged approach helps reduce food intake.

Plenity

Summary: Plenity is a unique treatment that makes you feel full without adding calories. It’s not a drug but a device that augments the food in your stomach.

Mechanism: Plenity contains particles that absorb water in the stomach. As they expand, they mix with your food, creating a feeling of fullness. This can help reduce the amount you wish to eat during meals.
