Appetite Suppressants Q & A

How do appetite suppressants work?

Appetite suppressants are designed to curb your appetite, so you feel fuller for longer periods and experience fewer cravings. Below are descriptions of how some of the most popular prescription appetite suppressants work.


Phendimetrazine increases certain brain chemicals to trick your body into thinking you’re full. You may feel so satisfied, you eat less or find that you don’t need snacks. 


Tenuate helps decrease your appetite by targeting certain parts of your brain. It can even help increase the amount of energy your body uses, meaning you burn more calories.


Phentermine acts as a stimulant that helps you feel more energized but less hungry. This appetite suppressant can also help you feel full more quickly as you eat. 

Which type of appetite suppressant is most effective?

All of the prescription appetite suppressants offered at Symonett Weight Loss Center have been proven to be highly effective. But the right type of appetite suppressant for your unique needs depends on:

  • Your body mass index (BMI)
  • How well you follow your diet plan
  • Any other medications you may be taking

Your dedicated provider at Symonett Weight Loss Center spends time evaluating your health, taking measurements, and talking with you about your lifestyle. They educate you about how each appetite suppressant works, so you can make an informed decision about your weight loss treatment plan. 

When do I take appetite suppressants?

Your medical practitioner at Symonett Weight Loss Center designs a personalized weight loss plan for you. Depending on how much weight you have to lose and your daily routine, it’s most common to take appetite suppressants once a day in the middle of the morning (a couple of hours before lunch).

If you work off-hours, such as evening or night shifts, your provider can let you know the best time of day to take your appetite suppressant. It’s important to be consistent and take it at the same time each day, even on your days off.
