There are certain medical conditions when Phentermine may not be suitable for you. Your NSC doctor will discuss this with you and suggest an alternative appetite-suppressant if appropriate. Diethylpropion is another centrally-acting appetite suppressant. It works in a similar way to Phentermine and by decreasing your hunger and making you feel fuller it enables you to keep to a reduced calorie diet. Diethylpropion is either a once a day or 3-times a day tablet medication that will be prescribed to you weekly for 12 weeks.
At 12 weeks your doctor will review your progress and decide on suitability for a 2-week medication break before re-starting a new 12 week treatment cycle. Diethylpropion is usually tolerated well with minimal side-effects that settle as your body adjusts to the medication. Your doctor will discuss these with you at your initial consultation. There are certain medical conditions when Diethylpropion may not be suitable for you.
Your doctor will discuss this with you and suggest an alternative appetite-suppressant if appropriate. Yes; all of our medication is prescribed by a doctor who will give you a mini health screening before to check that you are suitable for our medication. We only prescribe safe and effective medication, most of which are appetite suppressants with a history of success to help weight loss and treat obesity by increasing one or more brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite.
If you would like to find out more information on our medication, please book your free consultation with one of our doctors. During your consultation, the doctor will issue you with a diet guide and advise you on a healthy eating plan. The quality of your everyday diet is improved by reducing the amount of foods and drinks that are high in calories, fats and sugars that you consume. These are replaced by healthier options that are high in fibre, proteins and nutrients.
Gently increasing activity levels is a desired part of obesity treatment plans. By gradually introducing various exercises including walking, aerobics, swimming and so on, slimmers increase their metabolic rate, become more active in life and improve their general wellbeing and energy levels which in turn leads to faster, more effective weight loss. Two of the slimming medications that we offer are Phentermine and Diethylpropion that act as appetite suppressants. Your lifestyle, medical history and mini health check will depend on what medication our doctor will prescribe to you.
When I have lost weight in the past, the weight has always crept back on - and more. I can honestly say that this was, by far, the best slimming experience I have ever had. When I got past my 2 stone mark people started noticing, that was when I realised there was no stopping me and that this was going to be the last time I ever needed to lose weight again.
All the compliments from people was all I needed to cheer me on until the end. After losing about 4 stone, I have a new lease life. I am able to go out with my daughters and grandchildren. I enjoy what I eat but now have smaller portion sizes and have cut out the junk food. I occasionally have a takeaway but I still manage to stay on track. I wish I joined the clinic sooner because ever since joining I have become a lot healthier and happier.
I have managed to do a few 5km walks, this year, for Kidney Research UK in honor of my late Dad, something I would not have been able to do without my weight loss, with the help of NSCC. I am always being complimented on how far I've come with my weight loss and how well I look having lost weight. I am much happier and energetic now. I love shopping and meeting my friends. What I love the most is people who have not seen me are surprised and shocked to see the new me.
Some friends hardly recognized me. The staff at the Middlesbrough branch I attend have given me so much encouragement and advice and I am so grateful to them for being there for me through my weight loss journey. I am so much happier now; I can buy nice clothes that fit me, I am a lot more active and I can enjoy walking the dogs now whereas before it was more of a struggle.
The hardest part of tracking apps is maintaining the discipline to enter daily food and exercise over time. Experts recommend only logging twice a day — once right after lunch and once before bed.
