How does this program work?

With Slimming Studios weight loss tablet programs, you can lose up to 25 pounds a month. Programs run for 30, 60 or 90 days.

Patients first undergo blood testing to determine if they are eligible for a tablet weight loss program. If the patient proves eligible, the doctor will issue a 30-day prescription for the medication. Patients need to return every 30 days for a follow-up exam and prescription refill.
