Tenuate (diethylpropion hydrochloride)

Tenuate® is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that is used for treating obesity. It works by suppressing the appetite and possibly increasing the metabolism. The medication, which should be combined with diet and exercise, is only approved for short-term use. Tenuate® is available in short-acting and long-acting tablets that are generally taken one to three times daily.

General considerations for when and how to take Tenuate® include the following:

  • The medication comes in short-acting and long-acting tablet forms. The short-acting tablets are taken three times a day, one hour before meals, while the long-acting tablets are taken just once a day in the mid-morning.
  • Tenuate® should be combined with an appropriate diet. It is not meant to be used without dieting.

We will design a lifestyle change program, including new eating habits, designed exercise program, coaching, and medical management to help create a sustained weight loss and overall new health and vitality.

Success Stories

"I went to Dr. Powers because some of my friends had a few skin procedures done and they looked fabulous. I was very nervous but after it was over, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about. There was absolutely no pain involved at all. It was so simple. And now, I have people telling me that my skin looks really pretty. I’ve never in my life had anyone tell me that I have pretty skin, even when I was young! I owe it all to Dr. Powers. I would recommend him to anyone (and I do)."
