How to Choose the Right Weight Loss Drug and Program

The world of medical weight loss can sometimes feel like navigating through a maze, especially with new medications and trends frequently emerging. You might have noticed the buzz surrounding GLP-1 agonists, a relatively new class of weight loss drugs, including well-known names like Ozempic and Wegovy. While these medications indeed offer potency, their high cost often creates a quandary, causing distress among many of our patients. Many patients yearn for access to the 'best' medications, only to face sticker shock when learning the price tag attached to GLP-1 drugs.

Cutting Through the Hype

At Holland Clinic, one of our key roles in your weight loss journey is to help you look beyond headlines and marketing hype, instead focusing on the hard facts. GLP-1 agonists are highly effective, but it often comes as a surprise to many that 'classic' weight loss drugs, such as phentermine, can offer equal effectiveness at a fraction of the cost.

Remember, the ultimate goal of achieving optimal health and weight is far more significant than the specific medication used to get there. Holland Clinic takes a COMPREHENSIVE approach to weight loss, and affordability plays a major role in our philosophy. Unaffordable drugs don't lead to healthier individuals. Instead, they often result in interrupted use (leading to ineffective treatment) and immense financial stress (damaging overall health).

Affordable, Effective Weight Loss Within Your Reach

At Holland Clinic, we firmly believe that achieving your weight loss goals shouldn't lead to financial strain. Our 'Classic' weight loss program, featuring tried-and-tested medications like phentermine, phendimetrazine, and diethylpropion, has been a beacon of hope for our patients since 1991. The numerous success stories from our 'Classic' program participants underline the effectiveness of these reliable medications.
