Return to Our Medications

The BE-LITE "Unlimited Meds" Plan (Revised 12/29/2012)

Patients pay our established fees up to a maximum of $185 per visit for a 4-week return appointment. Please note that this is a per visit charge, not a monthly charge. Most patients visit every 4 weeks and pay no more than $185 per month.


 

This covers:

  • Evaluation by our medical practitioner
  • "Unlimited" prescribed medications including:
    • Phentermine capsules
    • 5-HTP capsules
    • Phendimetrazine 35 mg
    • Diethylpropion 25 mg
    • vitamin, propranolol, trazodone
  • Nutritional counseling
  • EKG every three months



The "unlimited meds" plan does not cover:

  • Phendimetrazine SR 105 mg
  • Diethylpropion SR 75 mg

The costs of these medications are added to the final cost of the invoice. Thus, the purchase of these medications will often produce an invoice greater than $185.



Notice About Dispensing Prescription Medications On-Site:


For the convenience of patients, the BE-LITE Pharmacy of Fairfax, located on-site, is a compounding pharmacy that can provide many of the medications prescribed by the medical practitioner. Most patients find that this saves them the time and inconvenience of an additional trip to their local pharmacy. In order to get some of the medications, such as 5-HTP and carbidopa, patients may need to visit a compounding pharmacy. 


If asked, the medical practitioner will gladly provide patients with prescriptions that can be filled at the local pharmacy of their choice. Dr. Rothman would like patients to know he is co-owner of the Be-Lite Pharmacy of Fairfax. 



Other items of interest:

  • New patients pay $175 at their first visit. This price covers the costs of the first visit, a follow-up visit, typically 1 week later, and medications and vitamins for the first 4 weeks. New patients requesting prescriptions from the local pharmacy of their choice, will pay our usual visit fee of $175. These patients, not BE-LITE, are responsible for paying for the prescriptions at the local pharmacy.
  • Patients who schedule a return visit of more than 4 weeks pay for the extra medications at the usual price.
  • Patients who schedule a return visit of less than 4 weeks pay the costs of that visit up to a maximum of $185.
  • Patients requesting prescriptions for the local pharmacy of their choice, will pay our usual visit fee of $80. These patients, not BE-LITE, are responsible for paying for the prescriptions at the local pharmacy.
  • The amount and type of medications prescribed is determined by the medical practitioner.
