Appetite suppressant programs are an integral part of Houston Weight Loss Center weight loss program. Drugs that reduce appetite are used on a short-term basis to clinically treat obesity and promote weight loss*.

Before starting or prescribing a weight loss appetite suppressant program, Houston Weight Loss Center conduct a physical examination and a complete battery of blood tests. Our appetite suppressant medicines are prescribed only after a complete medical evaluation has been performed. Our doctors will go over the medical report submitted after medical examination and you will be informed about the strengths of your prescribed appetite suppressant medication for your customized weight loss program.

The appetite suppressant drugs we prescribe are effective in reducing hunger pangs and thoughts about food and in making you satisfied after eating smaller portions*. They also increase the chances of fast weight loss with their inherent tendency to render you desirous of sticking to the prescribed diet*.

When you enroll in our Appetite Suppressant program for weight loss, you will be given a prescription for appetite suppressants as well as a lipotropic injection.

Diet Medications

Semaglutide (Wegovy / Ozempic)

Semaglutide is a non-stimulant appetite suppressant that acts like a hunger-regulating hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). It works by delaying stomach/gastric emptying which makes you feel full longer after eating smaller amounts of food. It also reduces blood glucose levels by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin which helps reduce cravings. Semaglutide has been clinically proven to suppress appetite, and therefore, calorie consumption leading to weight loss and overall health improvements. Patients taking semaglutide lose an average of 15% of their body weight.

Tirzepatide (Zepbound / Mounjaro)

Tirzepatide is a non-stimulant appetite suppressant similar to Semaglutide. The main difference is that Tirzepatide is a dual-agonist that targets both the GLP-1 and GIP hunger-regulating hormones. Clinical trials of Tirzepatide show impressive weight loss results and improved health outcomes when used with a reduced-calorie diet and lifestyle changes. Patients taking Tirzepatide lost an average of 15-21% of their starting body weight (compared to the placebo at only 3% body weight lost).

Phentermine (Adipex)

Oral Phentermine Hydrochloride is the most commonly prescribed appetite suppressant that, when used in conjunction with diet, exercise and behavior therapy, affords faster weight loss*. It helps reduce hunger pangs while new lifestyle changes are put into effect*. It stimulates the hypothalamus gland and affects neurotransmitters to reduce appetite on a short-term basis*. Adipex is a stimulant.

Phendimetrazine (Bontril)

Bontril stimulates the nerves and brain center that increases heart rate and blood pressure while reducing appetite*. Bontril is used in short-term supplement and can be prescribed as a component to your weight loss program. Bontril is a stimulant.

Bupropion-naltrexone (Contrave)

Contrave is a weight loss medication that works by decreasing appetite and reducing cravings.  It is a combination of two drugs, bupropion and naltrexone. Buproprion, commonly known by the brand name Wellbutrin, has been used to help people quit smoking and as an antidepressant. Naltrexone is used to curb cravings to addictive drugs like alcohol and narcotics.  Though neither of the drugs are considered stimulants, Bubroprion is known to increase blood pressure. Once started, it is important not to suddenly stop taking Contrave without talking to your healthcare practitioner.  

Liraglutide (Saxenda)

Liraglutide works by affecting the pancreas, causing an increase in insulin production and a decrease in glucagon. Liraglutide is an injectable medication used in obesity and the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. It can be used short-term as an appetite suppressant and to help control blood sugar. Of the weight loss medications it can be the most costly. Liraglutide is not a stimulant.

Phentermine-topiramate (Qsymia)

Qysmia combines the appetite suppressing qualities of Phentermine with Topiramate, an anti-convulsant drug that also has weight loss effects. Used in combination with diet and exercise it has been shown to help patients lose weight. Qysmia should not be stopped suddenly, so talk to your nurse practitioner before discontinuing use. Qysmia is a stimulant.

Diethylpropion (Tenuate)

Tenuate is used in combination with diet and lifestyle changes to help patients lose weight. It is an appetite suppressant that can be prescribed short-term for obesity. Tenuate is a stimulant.
