Belviq is Here!

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.

Healthy Times Radio Interview

Dr Robert Skversky Radio Interview combo diet drugs

In March Dr. Skversky was interviewed by Mike Bundrant on Healthy Times Radio.  With all the excitement over  Dr. S’ appearance on the Dr. Oz Show on March 18th, the podcast got temporarily lost in the shuffle.  I recently came across it and listened to it for the first time.  Wow!  This is a great interview.    In this 12 minute audio clip, you’ll get a good introduction to  what the Weight No More program is about, and the physician behind it.

This particular podcast is no. 2 in a series of 3 interviews discussing how and why Doctor Skversky began to focus his practice on the treatment of overweight patients.  He discusses off-label use of prescription medication in general and for use in medically supervised weight loss.
