Does Dr. Summers suggest that his patients do the appetite suppressant and weight loss injections (lipotropic injections) at the same time, or does the patient need to choose between the two options?

Our most successful patients take the appetite suppressant medication and participate in the weight loss injections at the same time.  When it is time to come off of the medication, we recommend that you stay on the lipotropic injections to help maintain your weight loss and to continue recieving the many additional health benefits.  The medication is to be taken daily and the weight loss injections are to be taken 1 - 2 times per week, depending upon the type of injection, recommended dose, and amount in each syringe (meaning if it is a single injection or double injection). A single injection has 1 cc of the solution and a double injection has 2 cc of the solution.
