Weight Loss Injection Add-Ons  


Skinny Shots are a mixture of B vitamins, amino acids, and lipotropic agents. They are injected intramuscular up to 1-3 times a week. Skinny Shots are used to help patients with generalized weight loss by boosting energy and metabolism and increasing fat removal from the body. The Skinny shot is a special formula of liver-supporting nutrients that can help with energy, fat metabolism, and hormone balance, which are all key liver functions. In most cases, results are realized after consistent use for 60-120 days. Like other prescription weight-loss drugs, Skinny Shots are intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan.

Tirzepatide Weight Loss

Tirzepatide is a prescription drug and is given as an injection under your skin in your thigh or belly. The active ingredient in Mounjaro is tirzepatide. (An active ingredient is what makes a drug work). Tirzepatide belongs to a group of drugs called glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists.

Will I experience a certain amount of weight loss each week with Tirzepatide?

There isn’t a specific amount of weight loss that’s expected each week with any weight loss drug. Weight loss results with this drug can differ for each person who uses it. To learn more about what to expect when using tirezepatide for weight loss, schedule a complimentary consultation with our medical weight loss specialist. He can advise you on how soon you may see results with Tirzepatide.

For weight loss how does Tirzepatide compare with Semaglutide?

Both Tirzepatide and Semaglutide are approved to treat type 2 diabetes and both drugs can be used off-labeled for weight loss. Studies have not specifically compared Tirzepatide with Semaglutide when they’re used for weight loss. But one study did compare the effects of Tirzepatide and Semaglutide on body weight when used to treat type 2 diabetes. In this study, people using Tirzepatide lost more weight than people using Semaglutide. 

What is the usual dosage for Tirzepatide?

To start, our doctor will typically prescribe a low dosage of Tirzepatide. He may increase your dose over time to the right amount for you. Your exact dosage of Tirzepatide will depend on how well the drug works to help you lose weight. For example, our doctor may prescribe a dosage of Tirzepatide for weight loss based on doses used in a study of the drug for this purpose. A likely starting dosage is 2.5 milligrams (mg) injected once weekly for 4 weeks. Then, our doctor will likely increase your Tirzepatide dose by 2.5 mg every 4 weeks until you reach a dose that helps with weight loss. The maximum dose from this study was 15 mg of Tirzepatide injected once weekly. Our doctor may also use this as your maximum dose. If you have questions about your Tirzepatide dosage, talk with our doctor.

How often should I use Tirzepatide?

You’ll inject Tirzepatide once weekly, usually on the same day each week. You can inject the drug any time of day. Our medical doctor will decide whether it’s safe for you to use Tirzepatide for weight loss. For example, our doctor may prescribe Mounjaro off-label for weight loss in adults with either:

  • A body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher (obesity)

  • a BMI of 27 or higher (overweight) and at least one health condition related to weight such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, or obstruction sleep apnea. This is because tirzepatide (the active drug in Mounjaro) was shown to help with weight loss in adults meeting either of these qualifications in studies.

What are Tirzepatide’s mild side effects?

Some people may have mild side effects with Tirzepatide. These include:

  • Mild increase in heart rate
  • Mild digestive problems, such as:
    • Heartburn
    • Belly pain
    • Diarrhea
    • Reduced appetite
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Constipation
  • Injection site reactions, such as skin discoloration or pain

In many cases, mild side effects from the drug can be temporary. Some side effects may be easy to manage, too. But if side effects last for a longer time, or if they bother you or become severe, talk with our doctor or pharmacist.

Phentermine Weight Loss St Peters MO
Kare Chiropractic | Medical Weight Loss Clinic Near You

Phentermine is an amphetamine-like prescription medication used to suppress appetite. It is taken orally on a weekly basis. It can help weight loss by decreasing your hunger or making you feel full longer. Like other prescription weight-loss drugs, phentermine is intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan. It is indicated for people who are obese and who have failed to lose enough weight with diet and exercise alone — not for people who want to lose just a few pounds. 

Semaglutide Weight Loss St Peters MO
Semaglutide Near Me | Kare Chiropractic Weight Loss

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) injected subcutaneously on a weekly basis. GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar. Studies show that semaglutide reduces appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings in addition to improving glycemic control. Semaglutide is intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan. It is indicated for people who are obese and who have failed to lose enough weight with diet and exercise alone — not for people who want to lose just a few pounds to create additional locks.
