Belviq is Here!

belviq

Dr. Skversky answers questions about Belviq:

Q. I’ve heard that a new drug for weight-loss, Belviq, is available. Does Weight No More offer it?

A. Belviq, the recently FDA approved drug for long term weight-loss, is now available at pharmacies and our offices.

We plan to use Belviq primarily as an adjunct to other well established combination medications we currently use. The rationale for this is that by itself Belviq is only modestly effective with a reported average weight loss of 7.9%. About 47% of patients lost 11 pounds or more and 22% lost 22 pounds or more.

However, patients who have been unable to to tolerate Topamax (Topiramate) and or Adipex (Phentermine) would be good candidates for a trial of Belviq.

ASBP Releases Statement on HCG Products

HCG Diet If you have been reading the Weight No More Blog, and listening to our many short installments of radio podcasts over the past year, you are probably aware of Dr. Skversky’s firm opinion of HCG injections as waste of money.    Recent actions by the FDA and statements by both the FDA and ASBP,  are in agreement with Dr. Skversky’s long held assertion that HCG “slims your wallet, not your waist.”

The American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) issued a press release last week in support of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) decision to remove homeopathic HCG weight loss products from the market.
