If the instructions provided to you are followed carefully then you can potentially expect to lose between 1-2 stone in a 4-6 week period. We cannot guarantee this for everybody – due to individual differences. However, this has been an average amount lost by our patients who have recently trialled the new weight loss medication.
No, a full medical history will be taken and you will receive a thorough consultation with our medical practitioner in order to distinguish if we are able to prescribe the medication for you.People who are not able to take such medication include:
- Patients on diabetic medication
- Patients on thyroid medication
- Patients with Eating disorders, Body Dysmorpia or any other mental health issues we may be concerned by
- Patients with a BMI <20
- Patients we feel do not qualify for the medication for any other reasons discussed during your consultation.
- Pregnant individuals and those breast feeding
Our patients are reviewed & monitored carefully. If we feel you are losing too much weight, your BMI is too low, you no longer require the medication or we have any other concerns regarding your physical or mental health/well-being then we reserve the right to discontinue your prescription.
All medications have the potential for side effects but this newly approved weight loss medication is remarkably well tolerated if taken as directed by your appointed medical practitioner.
Some people may experience slight nausea to begin with but most people find that this soon dissipates with continued use. Other side effects may include dyspepsia and diarrhoea. You will receive further information during your consultation, in which will provide you with all the
information required regarding this prescription medicine.
The majority of our patients who have recently trialled the medication with our guidance have reported no side effects being experienced.
