Medication Adjustment

We understand that your response to weight loss medication may change over time, so we are prepared to modify your medication type, dose, and schedule as needed.

Medication Adjustment

Regular Review and Optimization of Medication Protocols


At Holland Clinic Medical Weight Loss Program, we understand that achieving successful and sustainable weight loss often requires a multifaceted approach, which may include the use of medications to support and enhance your efforts. Dr. Mark Holland, MD, is committed to providing personalized care and ensuring that each patient receives the appropriate medication protocol tailored to their individual needs, health status, and weight loss goals. Regular review and optimization of weight loss medication protocols are essential to enhance patient comfort, health, and weight loss outcomes.

Weight Loss Medication Protocols:

Dr. Holland offers two distinct medical weight loss programs that utilize different classes of medications to support your weight loss journey:

Classic Program:

This program is based on the use of weight loss medications such as phentermine, phendimetrazine, and diethylpropion, in addition to diet and exercise recommendations.

GLP-1 Agonist Program:

This program uses the same diet and exercise recommendations as the Classic Program but is based on the use of GLP-1 agonists to promote weight loss.

Regular Review and Optimization of Medication Protocols:

Assessing Medication Efficacy

During each patient visit, Dr. Holland will carefully evaluate the efficacy of your current medication protocol by reviewing your weight loss progress, health status, and feedback. This assessment helps identify if the medication is working as intended or if changes may be necessary to improve your outcomes.

Monitoring Side Effects

Weight loss medications can sometimes cause side effects that may impact your comfort, well-being, or adherence to the treatment plan. Dr. Holland will closely monitor your experience with the medications and address any concerns or side effects that arise. If necessary, he may adjust the medication type, dosage, or mixture to minimize side effects and enhance your overall comfort.

Adjusting Dosages

As you progress in your weight loss journey and your body adapts to the medications, adjustments to dosages may be required to maintain optimal results. Dr. Holland will regularly evaluate your response to the medications and make necessary dosage changes based on your needs and progress. This ensures that you continue to receive the appropriate level of support from your medication protocol throughout your weight loss journey.

Changing Medication Types

In some cases, it may be beneficial to switch from one type of weight loss medication to another. This can be due to a variety of factors, such as individual response, tolerance, or the development of new medical conditions. Dr. Holland will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate medication type for your unique situation and ensure a smooth transition between medications when necessary.

Combining Medications

For some patients, a combination of medications may provide the most effective weight loss support. Dr. Holland is skilled in evaluating the potential benefits and risks of combining medications and will develop a customized medication protocol that maximizes your weight loss results while prioritizing your safety and well-being.

Considering Patient Preferences

Patient preferences play an essential role in the success of any weight loss program, including medication protocols. Dr. Holland will take the time to listen to your concerns, preferences, and feedback, incorporating them into the development and optimization of your medication plan. This collaborative approach helps ensure that your treatment plan aligns with your needs and goals, promoting long-term success.
