Schedule a Physician Consultation


Any resident of Pennsylvania may schedule a convenient online doctor consultation with The Sanctuary Wellness Institute to talk about prescription weight loss medications and ask any relevant questions. Our telehealth services make it possible for you to find a skilled practitioner who is knowledgeable about medical weight loss treatments and prescriptions, and to schedule a meeting with that doctor at a time that is convenient for you.

How to Get an Online Weight Loss Prescription

Meet with a Doctor and Develop a Treatment Plan


Your telehealth consultation will function similarly to a typical in-person office visit. The physician will review your treatment goals for weight loss and inquire into your medical history.

You can find out more about the process of losing weight and inquire about the advantages and drawbacks of weight loss medications during your appointment. Learning as much as possible will enable you to set reasonable expectations and choose the course of action that is best for your health.

Pick Up Your Prescription or Have it Delivered


Your pharmacist will receive an order from the doctor if they recommend weight loss medication. After that, you can pick up the prescription from the pharmacy and begin your treatment regimen. It might also be possible to arrange for your prescription to be delivered.

Best Prescription Weight Loss Medications


The optimal course of action will be recommended by your doctor based on your current weight, medical history, and desired weight. Among the most prevalent medical weight loss drugs are:

Ozempic


Ozempic® is a semaglutide injectable that is used once a week. By reducing appetite and delaying digestion to keep the stomach fuller for longer, it aids patients in losing weight. The drug imitates the actions of GLP-1, a hormone that the body creates on its own during digestion. Ozempic is used off-label for weight loss even though it has FDA approval for treating type-2 diabetes.

Wegovy


A weekly self-injection is used to administer the semaglutide medication Wegovy®. The drug prolongs feelings of fullness by slowing digestion and suppressing appetite. It is FDA-approved for weight loss. In contrast to Ozempic, Wegovy is available in larger doses.

Mounjaro™


Tirzepatide is an FDA-approved type-2 diabetes drug that suppresses appetite and controls blood sugar by activating multiple receptors that regulate hormones related to digestion. It is marketed under the brand name Mounjaro.

Others


Other prescription weight loss drugs include setmelanotide, or Imcivree®. This injectable inhibits the body's MC4 receptors, which regulate hunger and metabolism, to facilitate weight loss.

Wellbutrin is a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI), also referred to by its generic name, bupropion. This class of drugs prevents dopamine and adrenaline from entering the brain. Not only is it an FDA-approved treatment for depression, but doctors prescribe it off-label for weight loss.

Researchers theorize that the drug modifies neurotransmitters and related receptors that regulate hunger and metabolism. Wellbutrin is available as a pill.

A sympathomimetic amine, Qsymia® is also generically referred to as phentermine-topiramate. By stimulating the central nervous system, this FDA-approved drug reduces appetite and promotes feelings of fullness.

Lastly, Saxenda®, also marketed as liraglutide, is a medication that many patients take to lose weight and keep it off.

Benefits of Medical Weight Loss Injections


Injectables for medical weight loss have a host of health benefits that can enhance and prolong your life. For one, these injections help lower your risk of serious health conditions like heart disease, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure by reducing excess body fat.

A variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other substances are combined in these injections to help you achieve your weight loss objectives. This mix of substances aids in boosting metabolism, decreasing appetite, and improving fat loss. Medical weight loss injections can facilitate significant weight loss if used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Weight loss drugs like Ozempic, Wegovy, and Mounjaro (all of which are in the GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) class of drugs) help patients lose harmful visceral fat in addition to subcutaneous fat, unlike fat reduction procedures like CoolSculpting and Smart Lipo.

These injections have the potential to help with weight loss as well as provide increased energy, enhanced focus and mental clarity, and even decreased stress. You need all of these elements to keep your weight at an ideal level long-term.

How Much Does a Weight Loss Prescription Cost?


Prescription costs can differ amongst weight loss medications and can depend upon their medical necessity as determined by insurance companies. In general, established treatments are less expensive than newer ones. Name-brand medications can be purchased for less money when they are generic.

Some patients may find the cost of weight loss injectables to be prohibitive. It is advised that you inquire about out-of-pocket expenses from your insurance provider and pharmacy before beginning a medical weight loss plan.

Meeting with a qualified physician to discuss your weight loss goals and medical history will help you determine the best course of action. Then, in order to ascertain your anticipated costs, you can confirm your coverage limits and costs with your pharmacy and insurance company.

Will Insurance Cover Your Weight Loss Prescription?


Depending on the pharmaceutical coverage provided by your plan, medications like Wegovy that are FDA-approved weight-loss treatments might be covered. Nevertheless, the majority of insurance companies do not pay for drugs like Ozempic that doctors prescribe off-label to treat weight loss.

How Does a Medical Weight Loss Program Work?


The medical weight loss programs offered by the Sanctuary Wellness Institute take a collective approach to medically assisted weight loss. Based on your initial weight and your goals, your doctor will collaborate with you to determine your target weight. They will then recommend a weight-loss drug and, during your treatment, give you advice on how to improve your overall health and the efficacy of your medication through diet and exercise.

Your doctor will keep an eye on how you're responding to the drug, evaluate your progress, and make sure the pace at which you're losing weight is healthy. It is imperative that you discuss any side effects, such as stomach issues, with them. The type and severity of your side effects may require your doctor to change your dosage or prescribe an alternative treatment plan. Additionally, losing weight under medical supervision will prevent you from losing skeletal muscle, which could endanger your health.

Benefits of Participating in a Medical Weight Loss Program


There are three main factors that determine body weight and composition: genetic, environmental, and developmental. Patients who participate in medical weight loss programs are able to move past the misconception that maintaining a healthy weight only requires self-control and a balanced diet.

Losing weight is a difficult process that can sometimes be frustrating. Enrolling in a medical weight loss program will give you the framework you need to track your development and stay motivated.

Medical programs are also beneficial because they educate patients on the fact that, although diet and exercise play a significant role in overall health and weight loss, they are not the only factors. Programs for medical weight loss address the neurological and metabolic aspects of weight as well.

A helpful healthcare professional who will monitor you to make sure your medication is working is another benefit of these programs. Additionally, doctors can provide guidance on heart-healthy diets and exercise regimens.
