Medical Weight Loss Programs
Dr. Derek Muse is board certified in overweight medications and knows how to prescribe the right medicine to help you lose weight. Our office can prescribe medications such as:
- Adipex (Phentermine)
- Contrave (Bupropion/Naltrexone)
- Saxenda (Liraglutide)
- Tenuate (Diethylpropion)
- Qsymia (Phentermine-Topiramate ER)
- Belviq (Lorcaserin)

You’ll be able to eat the right amount of food to give fuel to your body with these appetite suppressants. The different medication options we prescribe can help us figure out which weight loss program will work best for you. These medications are designed to help curb your appetite so that you don’t overeat in order to promote weight loss. This is one of a variety of options we have for our medical weight loss programs.
A lot of people out there are hesitant and concerned about the safety of these weight loss medications, and it’s understandable why they would be. However, the drugs we do prescribe are considerably safe to take. Especially considering the fact that staying overweight poses many risks to your health. Additionally, the medicines we prescribed are not addictive, but they are very effective. We also follow and uphold the guidelines set in place by the Obesity Medicine Association and the laws put in place by the State of Utah.
When making a diet plan to quickly lose weight, all new patients will have a meeting with Dr. Muse (Board-Certified overweight specialist). During your first meeting, you will get some education on:
- How overweight issues are caused
- Where and how you classify in the Muse Satiety Types (1-5)
- How the medications will work and help with your weight loss
- Address any issues to long-term weight loss and come up with solutions
A first exam is completely necessary with one of our providers in addition to lab tests and an EKG before any type of medication is prescribed to you. Once you’re given a prescription, you’ll have monthly visits to refill your medication and to track your weight loss. Furthermore, depending on your weight loss program, more than one type of medication could be used in a combination.
LAP-BANDS and other laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands are another way to lose weight. Dr. Muse will use fluoroscopy in order to adjust the amount of fluid in the band that goes around your stomach. The objective of the band is that it will act as an appetite suppressant thus inhibiting food consumption.
Very Low-Calorie Diet
When trying to lose weight, it’s crucial that the number of calories taken in is less than the number of calories burned during exercise and throughout the day. Advanced Medical Weight Loss’s Very Low-Calorie Diet limits patients to 800 calories a day to increase weight loss. Many of our Draper patients have lost 2-3 pounds per week.
Don’t put off losing weight any longer. The risks of remaining overweight are real. If you live in Draper, UT, or another city in the Salt Lake Valley, call Advanced Medical Weight Loss today at 801-559-3848 and take control of your weight.
