What are weight loss medications?

Weight loss medications can be found in many places and their levels of effectiveness can vary. In order to get the most out of weight loss medication, it is important to remember two things. One, you should only take weight loss medicine that is prescribed by a medical professional (such as Dr. Ellen K. Stehouwer, our board certified bariatrician). Two, we should think about weight loss medication as a tool, not a solution.

Most of our patients use weight loss medication, and we are able to prescribe and dispense weight loss medicine, including phentermine, at our clinic in Poulsbo, Washington. We treat obesity as a chronic disease, and as such, we believe that medicinal support is needed. Fighting obesity can be tough, and we utilize multiple approaches to address each patient’s medical history and underlying health issues. Medication is a toolbox; there are plenty of tools to choose from to get the job done, but certain tools work better than others.

We do not prescribe miracle pills that claim to help you lose weight overnight. Our weight loss advice is evidence-based and our solutions are rooted in scientific wellness. Deciding on the right medication will depend on a number of factors. We take your health history and genetics into account before prescribing the right medication and creating a weight loss plan.

We’ve all been on diets and all failed. Well, this time Skip and I desperately needed help to overcome my limited mobility due to back surgery that didn’t go as expected. Kitsap Medical Weight Loss ISN'T a diet. It’s a life style change that has been the most positive thing to happen to us in years, and years. We learned what our worst enemy is when eating… CARBOHYDRATES. After 5 months we’ve both lost over 35 pounds and have learned we eat to live, not live to eat. Dr. Ellen and her staff have been incredible. The first month was very difficult but we learned what we could and couldn’t eat and received lots of positive support suggestions and recipes to try. And we don’t even miss potatoes, pasta or French fries any more. For the first time for as long as I can remember I can see my toes. Some visceral fat disappears in the first two weeks. It gives you more incentive to keep going. I am more mobile and stand up straighter and walk better. GIVE IT A TRY. You won’t be disappointed.*
