FDA-Approved Appetite Suppressants

On the surface, the principles of weight loss are simple: eat less and move more. Unfortunately, stubborn fat stores may refuse to budge, underlying medical problems may increase weight gain, and temptations to indulge in snacks and relax instead of exercise occur every day. These factors can make weight loss incredibly difficult for some people. Luckily, some programs such as LeanMD may include FDA-approved appetite suppressants if deemed medically appropriate

What are Appetite Suppressants?

Appetite suppressants are a widely popular type of appetite suppressant. They work by increasing serotonin or catecholamine levels. These are chemicals in the brain that affect mood and appetite. By altering these chemicals, you feel full after smaller meals, take longer to become hungry again, and experience fewer cravings. These medications can also boost your metabolism and increase your heart rate to heighten your body’s fat-burning capabilities at rest and during exercise.

The physicians at LeanMD will prescribe this weight loss aid if appropriate for your situation. They'll consider your medical history, weight loss goals and any health complications related to your weight. These factors help determine if FDA-approved appetite suppressants are right for you.

Types of FDA-Approved Appetite Suppressants

The Food and Drug Administration has approved three forms of appetite suppressants:

  • Phentermine
  • Phendimetrazine
  • Diethylpropion

Phentermine is the most common and well-known type of appetite suppressant, but all three work similarly. They are only available with a prescription and are approved for short-term use, so plan on taking them for just a few weeks. You should only try one type of appetite suppressant at a time, and you should let your LeanMD physician know if you experience any side effects, feelings of addiction or indicators that the medication has stopped working.

Other Types of Weight Loss Supplements

FDA-approved appetite suppressants are deemed safe for many people hoping to lose weight, but if you can’t tolerate them for any reason, you’re not out of options yet! At LeanMD, we recognize that weight loss solutions aren’t one size fits all, so we offer a multi-faceted approach.
