“Weight loss medications” include appetite suppressants, fillers and “fat-blockers”
Medications have had their ups and downs in the weight loss industry. So you need to ask the following:
1) IS THE MEDICATION SAFE?
2) DOES THE MEDICATION WORK?
3) DO THE EFFECTS LAST?
The answer to all these questions can be YES if you proceed with guidance and with caution. At Perfect Balance Nutrition Programs we recommend CONTRAVE.www.contrave.com
Like all the PB programs, the CONTRAVE medication for weight loss program is complete. It includes support of the PB team:
- Medically Supervised
- Nutrition support
- Personal Trainer
- Stress Therapist
At Perfect Balance we take the following precautions:
- Use only FDA approved medications designed to be prescribed by physicians and FDA procedures done by physicians
- Review the clinical trial information regarding safety and efficacy
- Carefully select and screen patients after obtaining indicated lab tests
- Ensure that you fully understand the use of the product
- Obtain lab tests from initiation to completion of the medication use
- Prescribe only a few weeks of medication at a time
- Practice “super monitoring” of patients (more patient contact via visits and calls)
- Require that you pledge to use medications only as directed and to remain compliant with your appointment
- Require that you comply with all medical advice
If you are in our Orbera® program appetite suppressants cannot be used as they are not on the approved list for use with the Orbera rapid weight loss program.

REMEMBER all the programs work with continued nutritional and behavioral guidance along with medical supervision. But some programs may be more suitable and safe for you. So come in and discuss your options.
It is the Perfect Balance Nutrition Program Policy to use medication sparingly and judiciously for your success and safety.
