Specific Weight Loss Medications Used in Our Classic Program

Lets take a look at each of the individual weight loss drugs that we use in our classic medical weight loss program.


Phentermine is a time-tested and proven weight loss drug that has been in use since 1959. It is the most widely used weight loss drug on Earth, with many different doses available to suit all sensitivities. To get the best results from phentermine, it requires expert monitoring. Additionally, it may be combined with topiramate to enhance its effect.

Phendimetrazine is a prescription medication for weight loss, similar to phentermine. It works about as well as phentermine and can help people lose weight when combined with diet and exercise. However, some people may lose more weight with phendimetrazine than with phentermine, while others may lose less. Bontril was one brand name for phendimetrazine, although it is no longer available. Phendimetrazine is supplied in the following doses:




Diethylpropion is similar to phentermine and phendimetrazine, both of which are commonly prescribed for medical weight loss. Tenuate Dospan was a former brand name for diethylpropion. It is important to note that diethylpropion may work better for some people and less well for others. Diethylpropion is available in the following doses:



Topiramate Enhancement

Topiramate, branded as Topamax, is a medication originally developed to treat seizures and migraines. It was later found to cause weight loss and is substantially different from other weight loss drugs. Topiramate is one of the two active ingredients in the prescription drug Qsymia, which is used for weight loss. However, topiramate is not used by itself for weight loss, but rather to enhance the effect of other weight loss drugs. Topiramate can be added to a classic weight loss medication like phentermine to increase weight loss. Like other classic weight loss medications, topiramate is highly affordable.
