At the Renaissance Center for Medical Weight Loss, we develop a customized plan that may include prescription medication and dietary supplements for each of our Wisconsin patients. The addition of these medications and supplements can curb your appetite and give the nutritional support and metabolic efficiency your body needs to achieve weight loss goals.
We prescribe FDA-approved phentermine – an appetite suppressant – to our patients for the short-term management of obesity. Combined with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy, phentermine can help boost weight loss while you develop new habits for a healthier lifestyle. Phentermine safely decreases appetite with a low incidence of negative side effects. You must be on the food plan in order to be eligible for phentermine: the RCMWL will not prescribe phentermine as the sole factor in a medical weight loss plan. $25 – 7 day supply, $100 – 30 day supply.
We can also prescribe Contrave, which is believed to work on two areas of the brain to reduce hunger and help control cravings. Contrave is a combination of 2 medicines (naltrexone and bupropion) that have been FDA approved for more than 30 years, and is not a controlled substance or scheduled drug. You must be on the food plan in order to be eligible for Contrave. Contrave is available at a pharmacy or direct mail order through a prescription. $99 – 30 day supply with home delivery.
Commonly known as a “fat burner” injection, Lipo-B supports the liver, the organ responsible for removing fat and toxins from the body. This injection delivers the essential building blocks for better health and wellness, improving liver function for more efficient fat removal.

Vitamin B12 injections are the most efficient way to deliver this vitamin to those who are B12 deficient. These injections can help with chronic fatigue and stress, and can improve energy levels and overall health. Our patients, who often combine these injections with injections of Lipo-B, report feeling generally revitalized with vitamin B12, which is also available in sublingual (under the tongue) formulation. $20 each, $75/pkg. of 5 (save 25%), $125/pkg of 10 (save 37.5%)
Lose weight naturally and maintain a healthy body by optimizing fat metabolism and converting fat into cellular energy. Be-Thin is composed of essential nutrient groups that promote a healthy metabolism. This sublingual spray is supercharged with vitamin B12 from methylcobalamin, which improves brain and nervous system function, aids detoxification, reduces oxidative stress within the body, and plays a key role in sleep. Vitamin B1 helps the body burn fat, while folic acid plays an important role in the breakdown of lipids and fats. $49.90
There are 3 types of Omega fatty acids, 3, 6 and 9, each with a different function. Omega-3 may help increase feelings of fullness and fat burning, especially when combined with low calorie dieting and exercise. Omega-6 tends to cause water retention, which can be undesirable if your goal is weight loss. Aim for a 3-1 ration of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats. Main sources of Omega-6 include soybean oil, safflower oil and corn oil. Omega-9 is a monounsaturated fat that your body can produce on its own. However, it is one of the healthiest fats, as it increases your HDL (good fat) and lowers your LDL (bad fat). Most of your fat should come from monounsaturated fats such as nuts, olive oil, canola oil, avocados, and olives. $26 (100 tablets)
Digestive enzymes, such as amylase, protease, and lipase, aid in the breakdown and digestion of food. This breakdown allows the food to be utilized as energy and to support the building of new muscles and nerves. Inadequate enzymes can lead to bloating, gas, low energy and digestive discomfort. $24 (60 tablets)
Probiotics help to move food through your gut by supporting the good bacteria of the digestive track. They have been shown to aid in digestive problems such as IBS and antibiotic related diarrhea.
