Wegovy and Zepbound

Wegovy and Zepbound, FDA-approved for chronic weight management in obese/overweight patients, have exceeded our expectations at Dr. Rogers Centers, enhancing weight loss outcomes significantly. These user-friendly once-a-week subcutaneous injections, along with compounded forms semaglutide and tirzepatide, are integral to our comprehensive approach to weight loss and maintenance.

How do Wegovy and Zepbound work?

  • These medications both work on the glucagon-like peptide-1(GLP-1) receptor and Zepbound also works on the glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide(GIP).
  • The medications have shown a reduction in body weight when accompanied by calorie restriction and moderate exercise.
  • Dr. Rogers Centers recommends these medications for:
    • Weight Loss and "Recomping the Body"
    • Improve insulin resistance and glucose levels
    • Enhance metabolism and cardio protection
    • Decrease inflammatory markers
    • Decrease gastrointestinal inflammation

These remarkable findings underscore the superior efficacy of both medications compared to any other weight loss medication available to date.

Benefits of the Medications

  • Weight Loss
  • Improved glucose control
  • Improved fertility
  • Positive cardiovascular effects
  • Treatment of Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Decrease in Fatty Liver

Difference between Wegovy and Zepbound?

Zepbound is preferred by certain patients due to its lower incidence of nausea-related symptoms. Head-to-head studies comparing Mounjaro and Ozempic revealed that Mounjaro resulted in greater weight loss. Moreover, compounded tirzepatide is pricier than compounded semaglutide. At Dr. Rogers Centers, we recognize both medications as highly effective for weight loss and maintenance. During your initial weight loss appointment, our team will thoroughly discuss these medications with you, and together with your provider, determine the most suitable option for your needs.

Common side effects of the medication?

At Dr. Rogers Centers, we prioritize your well-being, ensuring that any potential side effects from medications are minimized under the guidance of our experienced medical and nutritional staff. While the most common side effects experienced by our patients include nausea and constipation, rest assured that we offer comprehensive strategies to address these concerns during your initial evaluation. We recommend administering the medication at night before bed and utilizing ondansetron as needed to alleviate nausea. Additionally, we discuss a regimen to manage the possibility of constipation, which may arise due to the mechanism of action of the drugs. Other occasional side effects such as heartburn, bloating, fatigue, and headache are also addressed, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout your weight loss journey.

More serious side effects can be:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Gallbladder problems
  • Kidney problems
  • Allergic reaction
  • Depression/suicidal risk
  • Gastroparesis

Customized Nutritional Program

  • The experienced and knowledgeable dietary staff at Dr. Rogers Centers has been formulating nutritional plans for successful weight loss for years.
  • The plans not only include calorie reduction, but macronutrient percentage manipulation to increase weight loss.
  • The plans are thoughtfully designed with food as medicine to help with certain medical problems.
  • The plans are designed based on your preference for food choices and religious needs.

Synergistic Supplements

Dr. Rogers Centers incorporates synergistic supplements for not only weight loss but overall health optimization. Some of our most popular supplement combinations

  • Improve body composition metrics- LeuSyngery, Performance Collagen, and iCell Water
  • Improve cardiometabolic risk factors- Sytrinol and fatty15
  • Improve exercise capacity- Leusynergy and iCellWater
  • Immune/Inflammation/gut health-Guttides(BPC-KPV), Apigenin and NuButyrate

Maintenance Program

At Dr. Rogers Centers, our weight loss program emphasizes maintenance from day one, focusing on achieving weight loss while consuming the highest caloric amount possible. We believe in minimal reduction in calories and strategic macronutrient manipulation to facilitate easier weight maintenance.

Additionally, we recommend aiming for a minimum of 5 hours of exercise per week to support weight maintenance. Before transitioning to the maintenance phase, we prioritize preparing the metabolism for sustained success.

Oral AppetiteSuppressants

For individuals struggling with being overweight or obese, oral appetite suppressants can be a valuable tool in achieving weight loss. At Dr. Rogers Centers, we have utilized oral appetite suppressants for years to reduce hunger while following a calorie-deficit eating plan for weight loss. These suppressants can be used alone or in combination with compounded semaglutide and tirzepatide.

The FDA has also approved the combination of phentermine-topiramate for long-term appetite suppression. Studies have shown that appetite suppressants, on average, result in 5-7% more weight loss compared to diet alone, particularly when combined with a physician-supervised nutritional and exercise plan.

Our center offers a variety of appetite suppressants tailored to individual medical history and patient comfort.

Faster weight loss

Why do Dr. Rogers Centers patients lose weight faster?

What sets Dr. Rogers Centers apart in achieving faster weight loss? We believe that our comprehensive approach, incorporating a range of weight loss tools, has been instrumental in our program's longstanding success. Each weight loss tool we offer serves to amplify overall success, and our unique ability lies in combining these tools to meet the specific weight loss needs of each individual.

What are Dr. Rogers Centers Results?

After regular use of semaglutide and tirzepatide, we are beginning to analyze our patient data to determine the percentage of weight loss from baseline. Prior to the use of these medications, our multidisciplinary weight loss program achieved impressive results, with 87% of patients experiencing meaningful weight loss of at least 10% in just 12 weeks. Additionally, 64% of our patients lost an average of 20 pounds, while over 23% of patients achieved an average weight loss of 34 pounds within the same time frame, representing a significant acceleration in weight loss compared to traditional studies.
