New Medications

Our FDA-approved weight loss drugs Safe, thoroughly proven medications for powerful weight loss

At Essential Weight Loss, our providers and weight loss specialists are continually evaluating the weight loss medication landscape. Any time a new drug is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), we get excited for the opportunity to offer a new product that might help more of our patients lose weight. Receiving FDA approval means these medications have been clinically proven to be effective and safe to use. While every new weight loss drug might not work for all of our patients, we’re proud to offer a full line of approved medications, so we can recommend something effective for just about anyone. If one of these new drugs is right for you, we can write a prescription that you can take to an outside pharmacy at an additional cost to you.

Here are some of our new meds. Find out more about our latest weight loss drugs.

Saxenda is the fourth weight loss medication to be approved by the FDA since 2012. It’s already prescribed in a lower dosage under the name “Victoza” for treating type-2 diabetes. As an obesity treatment, it’s injected daily and meant to be used together with a restricted-calorie diet and exercise.

Contrave recently received its FDA approval for those who are obese as well as those who are overweight with risk factors such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure. It combines two meds already on the market, an antidepressant and an anti-addiction drug for less hunger and easier weight loss.

At Essential Weight Loss, we’re always on the lookout for proven new medications we can use to help our patients lose weight. Everyone’s unique, so the specific drugs we recommend will vary from patient to patient, as not all medications will work the same for different people. Two more of our new meds are detailed below.

Qsymia

This once-a-day medication combines low doses of topiramate, a treatment for seizures and migraines, along with phentermine, a mild stimulant approved by the FDA for weight loss. Phentermine works to suppress appetite soon after its taken, topiramate kicks in later in the day to create a full feeling.

Belviq

This medication specifically targets serotonin receptors in the brain that have been linked with feelings of satiety, or feeling full. Belviq has been FDA approved for obese adults or those who are overweight with at least one serious medical condition, such as high cholesterol or diabetes.
