How it works:
The medication mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. They work on the same receptors as powerful, naturally-occurring GLP-1 hormones that exist in your body.
GLP-1s are not stimulants, non-habit forming, and are clinically proven to be the most effective medications for long-term results.
GLP-1s are different from older classes of weight loss medications (like phentermine) because they work on key underlying metabolic pathways to support sustained weight loss, not a quick fix.
GLP-1s are self-administered either daily or weekly depending on the medication. Our Apex Health experts will guide you through your customized medical weight loss program.
While an injection may sound scary, most patients actually report it is painless, quick, and easy. (It’s just under the skin—going into your fat instead of your muscle. The needle is ultra-fine, so it isn’t like a typical shot.) In addition, not only are the medications we prescribe more effective, but they also have fewer and safer side effects than other weight loss medications. The Apex Health team is available to answer your questions about taking the medication and to address other medical concerns you might have throughout your treatment.
