Your clinic Doctor will only prescribe medication that is safe and effective for you as a weight loss treatment. They will explain how the medication will help with your weight loss journey and any potential side effects you may experience. They will also monitor you closely throughout your weight loss journey to ensure you are getting the best and safest results.

Our appetite suppressant medications are not prescribed to completely take away your appetite but to suppress/reduce it, so you have more control of your hunger and, therefore, diet. The prescription weight loss medication is a tool to aid behaviour changes so you can concentrate on getting the right balance of the health and lifestyle changes necessary to lose weight for good.

Appetite Suppressant Pills

Phentermine and Diethylproprion (our tablet medication) alter the release of chemical messengers within the appetite control centre of the brain called the hypothalamus, leading to appetite suppression and reduced huger perception. You therefore have more control of your hunger, helping you to eat less food and thereby lose weight.

Saxenda Injections

Saxenda contains the active drug liraglutide which is similar to a naturally occurring hormone (GLP-1) that is released by the digestive system after eating.

It works in a very similar way to our tablets by acting on receptors in the appetite control centre of the brain to help control your hunger. Additionally, Saxenda also delays the emptying of your stomach, so you feel fuller quicker and for longer periods of time.

By reducing your appetite Saxenda® will help you keep to a calorie-controlled diet and achieve your weight loss goals. Medical studies have shown patients treated with Saxenda® achieve significantly more weight loss and maintain that loss compared to patients dieting alone.

There are minimal side-effects with Saxenda, which usually settle within the first weeks of treatment if they occur. Your doctor will be able to help you manage these if they occur.

Xenical

Xenical works by blocking the uptake of up to 30% of dietary fat in each meal. Fat has the highest calories per gram of any of the major food groups with 9 calories per gram compared to 4 calories per gram in protein and carbohydrates.

By reducing the amount of fat absorbed, Xenical reduces the number of calories taken in by the body for that meal. This helps you to achieve your required calorie deficit to help with your weight loss.

You should aim to eat three main meals each day and your diet should be rich in fruit and vegetables, with your daily intake of fat, carbohydrates and protein distributed over these three main meals. Xenical should be taken before, during or within 1 hour of these meals.
