Weight Loss Treatments

With the obesity rate hitting alarming numbers among adult Americans at 32.2% for men and 35.5% for women, pharmaceutical companies have worked hard on finding medication treatments that are proven to be effective.

It has been researched that obesity can be from medical issues and not as healthcare professionals one believed from a person having low will power.

Because of this successful research, there are now medications that if used along with proper exercise and healthy eating habits combined will significantly increase weight loss.

These medications are to be used for obesity diagnosis only and not to just lose a few pounds. You must be obese, determined by your doctor to be considered for these medication treatments.

Two of the most popular proven medications are:

  • Xenical: Bind in your gastrointestinal tract to prevent fat cells from being absorbed.
  • Meridia: Work on parts of the brain that will make a person feel full sooner during a meal.

Weight loss treatments should be taken seriously before considering using medications to assist on the weight loss. Your doctor will evaluate very carefully some very important details.

  • Health History
  • Determining weight gain issues
  • BMI of 30 or could be as low as 27 if there is an illness related to obesity such as diabetes or heart disease
  • Your doctor would stress to try lifestyle changes first to see if your healthy weight can be attained. If it is proven not to be too effective you can discuss other treatments to assist you such as medication.

As with any medication, there are side effects which should be explained to you by your physician. He or she will determine if a successful outcome outweighs the side effects. You may also be monitored with regular visits to track the progress of your weight loss.

  • I tried going to another compounding pharmacy and was absolutely disappointed. I have decided to stick with Myerlee and will never go anywhere else!! The medicine they compound is not only better but the employees take the time to get to know me and what my needs are. This place feels like home. Thank you Myerlee for good medicine at the best price.

  • I read books and then searched online for information on the use of bioidentical hormones which are made by compounding pharmacies. I found that Myerlee Pharmacy is one of the only compounding pharmacies in the area. After stopping in and speaking with the pharmacy team, I was referred to a local physician for treatment.

  • Called several other local compounding pharmacies for liquid Pepcid® and Myerlee was the only compounding pharmacy that offered to make it for us. We didn’t even ask, it was just offered. Thank you!
