In the evolving landscape of medical weight management, certain medications have stood the test of time, proving their effectiveness and reliability in helping individuals achieve their weight loss goals. At PV MediSpa & Weight Loss, our Weight Loss Silver Package harnesses the power of these tried-and-tested medications, offering a scientifically backed approach to weight management. This package is not just about prescribing medication; it’s about integrating these tools into a comprehensive health plan tailored to each individual.

The journey of using medications for weight loss has a rich history, dating back several decades. Medications like Phentermine have been used since the 1950s, and newer formulations have continually emerged, enhancing both efficacy and safety profiles. This evolution reflects a deepening understanding of weight management in the medical community, where the focus is not only on weight reduction but also on overall health improvement. Our Silver Package incorporates this holistic approach, ensuring that the benefits extend beyond the scale.

Our commitment to your health is reflected in our choice of medications. Each one has been selected for its proven track record in aiding weight loss, and their combined effect is tailored to boost your weight loss journey effectively and safely. From appetite suppressants to metabolism boosters, these medications have been rigorously tested and widely used, making them a reliable choice in medical weight management. In this blog post, we’ll explore each medication in detail, discussing their individual roles in weight loss, their long-standing history in weight management, and important considerations regarding their use.

At PV MediSpa we are expanding our offerings in order to provide access for more people struggling with obesity. This allows us to better tailor our treatment plans for specific patients and increase our successes! We are adding the following to offerings under our silver package.

  1. Naltrexone:
  • Benefits for Weight Loss: Naltrexone, originally used for managing alcohol and opioid dependence, has found a significant role in weight management. It works by blocking certain receptors in the brain that are involved in the rewarding effects of eating and the craving for food. By doing so, it effectively reduces food cravings and controls appetite, making it easier to adhere to a healthy diet.
  • Contraindications: Caution is advised for individuals with severe liver or kidney disease. In such cases, Naltrexone can exacerbate the condition. It’s also crucial to avoid this medication in those with acute hepatitis and individuals currently using opioid pain medications, as it can lead to withdrawal symptoms or reduce the effectiveness of the opioids.
  1. Bupropion:
  • Benefits for Weight Loss: Bupropion, known for its use as an antidepressant, also plays a significant role in weight management. Its mechanism involves the modulation of neurotransmitters in the brain, which helps to increase satiety and reduce appetite. This effect makes it easier for individuals to maintain a calorie deficit, which is essential for weight loss.
  • Contraindications: Bupropion should not be used by individuals with a history of seizures, as it can lower the seizure threshold. Those with eating disorders such as bulimia or anorexia should avoid this medication due to the increased risk of seizures. Additionally, it’s contraindicated for individuals undergoing abrupt discontinuation of alcohol, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and antiepileptic drugs.
  1. Topiramate:
  • Benefits for Weight Loss: Initially developed for migraine prevention and seizure control, Topiramate has been found to assist in weight loss. It works by altering several neurotransmitters and suppressing appetite. This medication also makes food less appealing and can decrease the frequency of binge eating episodes.
  • Contraindications: Individuals with a history of kidney stones should use Topiramate cautiously, as it can increase the risk of stone formation. It’s also contraindicated in those with glaucoma, particularly acute narrow-angle glaucoma, and metabolic acidosis.
  1. Vitamin B12:
  • Benefits for Weight Loss: Vitamin B12 is essential for energy production in the body, playing a vital role in converting food into energy. This energy boost can enhance metabolism and aid in weight loss efforts. Additionally, adequate B12 levels can improve overall well-being, contributing to more active lifestyle choices.
  • Contraindications: While generally safe, Vitamin B12 should be used with caution in individuals with Leber’s disease, a hereditary optic nerve atrophy, as it can lead to optic nerve damage. Those with megaloblastic anemia should also be careful, as B12 can mask symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency.
  1. Metformin:
  • Benefits for Weight Loss: Metformin, primarily known for its role in managing type 2 diabetes, aids in weight loss by improving insulin sensitivity and reducing the production of glucose in the liver. This can lead to a reduction in overall caloric intake and help in managing body weight.
  • Contraindications: It is vital to avoid Metformin in individuals with kidney or liver disease, as these conditions can increase the risk of lactic acidosis, a rare but serious complication. Metformin should also be used cautiously in individuals who consume excessive amounts of alcohol.
  1. Phentermine:
  • Benefits for Weight Loss: Phentermine is a well-established appetite suppressant, working by releasing certain chemicals in the brain that control appetite. It effectively helps individuals feel fuller with smaller food portions, thus reducing overall caloric intake, a key component in weight loss.
  • Contraindications: This medication should not be used by individuals with a history of cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease, uncontrolled hypertension, arrhythmias, or heart valve disorders. It’s also contraindicated in those with hyperthyroidism, glaucoma, and during pregnancy.
