Medication-assisted weight management has become very trendy in recent years, popularized by celebrities trying achieve their desired bodies for image and industry. At LIC LAB, we are focused on a person’s overall health and wellbeing, not just the number on the scale. While we offer medications for weight loss on an individual basis, we want our patients to understand that weight loss and weight loss maintenance require a multifactorial approach. We counsel our patients extensively prior to initiation and during the use of any weight loss medications to ensure proper candidacy and safety of use. Furthermore, to lower the risk of dangerous adverse effects of the medication, we aim to use the medication only as a tool to potentiate lifestyle modifications and limit the amount of time the patient is on medication.
