What better place than here? What better time than now?
Options prescription weight loss medications can be taken in conjunction with one of our weight loss programs, or on their own. Our OptiMed line is designed for healthy weight loss and to help control appetite, for short-term and long-term weight management. Options weight loss medications require a prescription from our medical providers. For best results, we recommend taking OptiMeds while following an Options weight loss program and working with one of our weight loss health coaches.
What FDA-Approved Medications Does Options Use?
GLP-1s for Weight Loss
Research has shown that patients using GLP-1s (glucagon-like peptide 1s) can lose between 15% and 20% of their bodyweight. This medication works on key underlying metabolic pathways which makes it different from other weight loss medications (like phentermine). The medication mimics natural hormones in the human body and helps suppress appetite, in addition to stabilizing blood glucose levels. Learn more about GLP-1 medications.
Phentimate for Weight Loss
Phentimate combines the FDA-approved appetite suppressant phentermine with topiramate to offer patients long-term appetite control. Phentermine stimulates the hypothalamus gland and affects certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite. The addition of topiramate increases the efficiency and success rate of phentermine, while methylcobalamin helps with absorption and to increase energy levels. While taking Phentimate, appetite control can be extended throughout the day and offer patients better satiety to decrease their calorie intake. Phentimate is ideal for those looking for long-term weight management. Phentimate is unique to Options Medical Weight Loss and was developed by Options’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Katrina Mattingly.
ProNovis for Weight Loss
ProNovis works to control appetite by combining bupropion and naltrexone. Bupropion is an antidepressant medicine that can also decrease appetite. Naltrexone is typically given to block the effects of opioids or alcohol in people with addiction, while also curbing hunger and food cravings. ProNovis may be ideal for you if you are currently prescribed stimulant-based medications and do not meet the criteria for phentermine. If you are currently taking medication for anxiety or depression, ProNovis may act to treat anxiety/depression while decreasing appetite. Talk to our medical provider to see if ProNovis is right for you. ProNovis is unique to Options Medical Weight Loss and was developed by Options’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Katrina Mattingly.
Options Complete for Weight Loss
Options Complete is our most well-rounded combination medication. It combines Phentimate and ProNovis, working various mechanisms in the body to control appetite in the brain which then sends signals to the gut. If you do not have any contraindications to any of our medications, Options Complete may be best for you. Options Complete is unique to Options Medical Weight Loss and was developed by Options’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Katrina Mattingly.
Phentermine for Weight Loss
Phentermine is the most commonly used appetite suppressant. It is a medication that increases metabolism and reduces hunger. The Phentermine diet pill stimulates the hypothalamus gland and affects certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite.
