Vitamin B-12 is necessary for carbohydrate and protein metabolism. Some people have trouble absorbing B-12 in their diet, but they can absorb it from an injection site. Many of our patients say they feel like they get an "energy boost" after receiving a B-12 shot.
Phentermine (brand names Adipex, Ionamin, and Fastin) is the medication we use most frequently. It is an appetite suppressant in the stimulant class, so it helps in two ways. Not only does it reduce appetite, making it easier to follow a diet, it also gives you an "energy boost," which helps with participating in an exercise program.
If you are not able to take Phentermine, Dr. Snellgrove can suggest and prescribe a variety of alternatives.
Zolpidem (brand name Ambien) is used to treat insomnia. Zolpidem belongs to a class of medications called sedative-hypnotics. It affects chemicals in your brain that may become unbalanced and cause sleep problems. It works by slowing activity in the brain to allow sleep.
