Appetite Suppressant Therapy
An appetite suppressant promotes weight loss by tricking the body into believing that it is not hungry or that it is full. It decreases appetite and stimulates energy levels by increasing catecholamines - brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite.
Appetite Suppressants are not recommended for long-term use. It is important for patients who are enrolled in this program to learn new eating habits and to exercise while the medication is still effective. This new lifestyle can be continued after medical therapy, to keep losing weight and also keep the pounds from returning again.
Appetite Suppressant therapy can be combined with a variety of Weight Loss Plans like Weight Watchers and Nutri-system or even a Natural Supplement plan or the MODIFIED Medical hCG Plan. The choice and duration of Appetite Suppressant therapy is based on each patient's unique needs and pre-existing conditions. Dr. Barreto takes into consideration the latest trends in the use of these medications in the Bariatric Medicine community, and offers these to appropriate patients.

Also, few studies have evaluated the long-term safety or effectiveness of weight-loss medications. Weight-loss medications should always be combined with a program of healthy eating and regular physical activity.
