Would You Benefit from Diet Pills? Find the “Best” Medication for You in 2017:
Diet pills Miami are for overweight or obese people often with co-morbidities of hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea who are unable to lose the weight without some added help in the form of medications. New information in the past 10 years has changed the way physicians and the public treat obesity and its complications. Three changes have lead to the inclusion of weight loss medications in current guidelines for obesity treatment:
Understanding that obesity is a true disease with genetic determinants–not a “will power problem”
Understanding that obesity is a major public health threat -not a cosmetic issue
Understanding that weight regain after stopping medications indicates that obesity is a typical chronic disease, like diabetes or hypertension and often the need for treatment for long periods of time.
Medications for weight loss affect several areas of the brain that control appetite, cravings and satiety. The net effect is not only to reduce appetite and cravings but often to increase metabolism.
Many overweight individuals can lose weight and keep it off simply by following one of Dr. Lipman’s three weight loss plans – others need the help of these FDA approved medications. When considering a diet medication for an overweight patient, I review the medical profile, concurrent medications,weight goal, efficacy and potential side effects to match the “right pill” profile with the “right” individual. Safe and effective weight loss means selecting the right medication for the right patient.
Note in the image above each of the diet pills affects different appetite centers
in the brain. Phentermine has a diffuse effect unlike some of the other medications.
The FDA certifies each diet pill as safe and effective. To be effective the FDA requires the medication to be more effective than a placebo usually in a step wise pattern. The minimal requirement for effectiveness is a 5% weight loss after one year above that seen with a placebo. In the graph below from Dr Bray, there is a step-wise reduction in weight as dosage of medications are increased as compared to placebo.(The graph illustrates the the diet pill phentermine -one of the most common and effective):

Diet Medications Have Different Actions Because Each Individual Has Different Reasons for Weight Gain
Each overweight individual has a different reason for his weight gain—it may be eating very large meals, cravings, eating out of anxiety or boredom, or even eating in the middle of the night. In order to use diet pills Miami to lose weight effectively, you first need:
- Identify your particular eating problem
- Match a food plan with your food preferences
- Find the best diet pill to assist you with hunger, cravings and metabolism
Diet drugs, even the strongest, are not “magic bullets,” only “helpers”, and even the strongest pill cannot stop one from eating some very bad, readily available foods.
Dietary Changes– even Simple Ones– ALWAYS Comes Before Medications
Diet pills, even for brief periods of time, often assist individuals in their weight loss plan. Some individuals experience fullness for the first time in their lives while others feel in control of their food and learn to make better food decisions. Many overweight people learn that they genuinely do not need as much food as they had once believed they did. I have often prescribed them for 3 or 4 weeks to “jump start” a diet program.

Since each individual who wants to lose weight has a different reason for his or her weight gain, the right drug needs to be matched with the right person—not only in choice of drugs, but dose and duration. All the new medical studies how rapid weight loss is more or equally successful for long term weight loss success as slow weight loss.
