Orthodontic Jaw Wiring (OJW™) facilitated by appetite suppressants
As the inventor and sole provider of Orthodontic Jaw Wiring (OJW™) for weight control, having treated more than 200 patients over the past ten years and more, my experience has evidenced the fact that the first two to four weeks of OJW can be a daunting trial period. Patients who see substantial and obvious weight loss are stimulated and encouraged to apply themselves to the OJW protocol with passion and dedication: “Nothing succeeds like success”. It’s easy to understand that these patients are struggling mightily to regain control and reverse their years-long-addiction to the seductive call of food which is their ”medication” for the anxieties that daily beset them. Food is the only love that never rejects them.
I have given much thought to the addition to weight loss meds (appetite suppressants) to the OJW protocol to assist OJW “start-ups”. One of those medications is Phentermine. This appetite suppressant has gained quite measure of popularity with physicians witness it is one of the most frequently prescribed medications.
It is classified by the DEA as a Schedule IV medication (potential for abuse and addiction). Consequently, the OJW patient must obtain a prescription for it from the provider of the OJW service (who must be registered with the DEA to prescribe Schedule IV meds) or, alternatively, to ask their physician for it.
Until recently, I have never been asked to provide an appetite suppressing medication. Phentermine (brand names Adipax and Qysimia are favored by physicians when warranted/”indicated” since they have the least side-effects when compared with other weight suppressant medications on the market.
Interested readers are strongly urged to visit http://www.drugs.com/pro/phentermine.html and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phentermine to do diligence re the benefits and side-effects of this appetite suppressant.
