There are some clients who may have programmed their brain to eat for psychological reasons and for not truly being hungry. Advanced Medical Weight Loss at the Crothers Institute uses phentermine as an appetite suppressant to assist our clients as well as providing behavior therapy, and a diet & exercise plan. If your BMI (Body Mass Index) is 25 or over you could be eligble for the appetite suppressant program. If you have any cardiovascular issues or health issues then this treatment may not be recommended. Some other issues may include:

  • Advanced arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
  • Cardiovascular disease (heart disease)
  • Uncontrolled moderate to severe hypertension (a blood pressure that is not well controlled)
  • Glaucoma
  • Pregnancy
  • Nursing Mothers

If you are not sure whether or appetite suppressing is the right choice then contact our qualified professionals to give you a proper health assessment at (314) 985-8006.
