Medical Weight Loss Protocol at VIVA Wellness


Medical weight loss programs through VIVA Wellness include compounded semaglutide, CONTRAVE® (naltrexone HCI/bupropion HCl), Phentermine, Qsymia®, and other products developed by the medical community to help the body release weight through various approaches.

Our medical weight loss protocols are designed to help you reach your goals while allowing for the behaviors you deem aligned with your lifestyle. Our goal throughout any weight loss journey is total body health, which is why working with a VIVA Wellness Nurse Practitioner is so important. You are given a custom protocol, with any needed nutrition and movement plans, that is based on individual health history, wellness goals, and overall preferences. Having a dedicated Nurse Practitioner invested in your wellness journey also means that your protocol includes accountability and consistent check-ins to ensure that you are on track moving toward your goals.

Because weight loss does not happen independently of the rest of the body's functions, VIVA Wellness is proud to offer in-house options to amplify and support your results with suggested digestive and/or lymphatic system services.

Medications & Prescriptions In Our Milwaukee Medical Weight Loss

At VIVA Wellness, we offer the most groundbreaking weightless treatments.

Ozempic, Wegovy and Compounded Semaglutide

Our compounded Semaglutide provides powerful weight loss results through weekly injections without having to radically modify your diet and lifestyle. Semaglutide is a non-stimulant, reduces cravings, makes you feel fuller for longer, and regulates blood sugar levels.

Semaglutide is part of the GLP-1 family and it mimics the GLP-1 hormone to prompt the body to produce more insulin, which in turn reduces blood glucose levels.


  • Aids in medical weight loss
  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Can curb cravings to substances such as alcohol or nicotine
  • Decreases appetite
  • Improved blood sugar levels
  • Improves blood pressure
  • Improves cholesterol levels

Mourjaro® or Compounded Tirzepatide

Offers similar results to those using compounded semaglutide—reducing appetite, sustaining satiety, and balancing blood sugar. The combination of these benefits over time means sustained weight loss for many.

  • Reduces BMI
  • Reduces waist circumference
  • Improves blood pressure
  • Improves glycemic parameters
  • Improves lipid levels

Compounded tirzepatide is one of our most commonly prescribed medical weight loss programs at VIVA.

CONTRAVE® (naltrexone HCI/bupropion HCl)

Works on two areas of your brain, the hunger center and the reward system, to reduce hunger and help control cravings. Contrave combines two active ingredients, bupropion and naltrexone, to aid in weight loss.

Bupropion is an antidepressant and smoking cessation aid that may help reduce appetite, while naltrexone is used to manage alcohol and opioid dependence and may also contribute to reduced food cravings. Together, these components work to target areas of the brain involved in regulating appetite and reward systems, aiming to promote weight loss when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program.


  • Combines bupropion and naltrexone for weight loss support.
  • Reduces appetite and food cravings.
  • Targets brain areas regulating appetite and rewards.
  • Effective with diet and exercise.
  • Prescribed for obesity (BMI ≥ 30) or BMI ≥ 27 with weight-related conditions.
  • Helps maintain weight loss with continued use and lifestyle changes.


A short-term solution for appetite suppression. Works best in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.

Phentermine works by suppressing appetite through its effects on the central nervous system, specifically by increasing the release of certain neurotransmitters that reduce hunger. Phentermine is typically prescribed alongside lifestyle changes, such as a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, to promote effective weight loss in individuals with obesity.


  • Suppresses appetite, helping to reduce calorie intake.
  • Increases energy expenditure, promoting weight loss.
  • Typically used for short-term management of obesity.
  • Can be effective when combined with lifestyle changes like diet and exercise.
  • Helps individuals achieve initial weight loss goals quickly.


This is a combination of two drugs: Phentermine and Topiramate. It will help you eat less by reducing your appetite and feeling more satisfied with what you've eaten.

It is used for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight conditions, who also have at least one weight-related medical condition such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.

Qsymia works by suppressing appetite and increasing feelings of fullness, aiding in weight loss when used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes diet and exercise.


  • Combination of phentermine and topiramate extended-release.
  • Suppresses appetite and increases feelings of fullness.
  • Helps with chronic weight management in adults.
  • Prescribed for individuals with obesity or overweight with weight-related medical conditions.
  • Supports weight loss when used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.
  • May improve blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and glucose control in some individuals.

Additional weight loss medications may be prescribed during your care.

We understand that every weight loss journey is different depending on the individual. We tailor a weight loss plan for your specific needs and it may require other medications not listed here.

Will I need to diet or exercise?

If you’re looking to maximize your weight loss results, a healthy lifestyle is a crucial piece, and that includes physical activity. While semaglutide and tirzepatide can be effective on their own, incorporating good habits like a healthy diet and moderate exercise will take your journey to the next level.

To put it simply, relying on GLP-1 medications without improving your lifestyle is like filling your car with fuel but neglecting to change the oil. It may keep running for a while, but eventually, it’ll break down when the oil turns into sludge.

In one study, obese adults who combined semaglutide injections with diet and exercise achieved remarkable results. At the end of 68 weeks, half of the participants who used semaglutide and exercised lost at least 15% of their body weight, with a third losing an impressive 20%. On the other hand, the group that only made lifestyle changes without semaglutide only managed to lose around 2.4% of their weight. This clearly demonstrates the incredible potential of combining semaglutide with lifestyle modifications for weight loss success.

If you're looking to feel better about yourself in anyway, I would highly recommend you check out VIVA Wellness!"


"I am so impressed with VIVA Wellness. They are so professional as well as warm, caring and encouraging. I started a weight loss program. I have had so much success, I am in shock! Yes, it is a plan meant to be followed closely, but with the weekly check ins, you feel so supported. It is like going to a pep rally every week. They genuinely care about your success and are so encouraging. I have had appointments with Jennifer, and she is so sweet, it is like you have another girlfriend in your corner. So understanding if you are struggling with something and give great suggestions to help get you through it. I have never had this kind of support with any other diet plan/company. I hope they know how much they are changing people's lives for the better. Not just as far as weight loss, but also in giving us confidence to better our lives for our own health."


"Jennifer and VIVA Wellness are amazing and unlike any other providers. At VIVA Wellness you get personalized recommendations geared specifically to you. I feel supported and encouraged to reach my goals and understanding when I fall short. They are great about guiding you along on your own personal journey using a holistic approach to create the best version of you. And it is easy to incorporate into my daily life."


"VIVA Wellness is amazing! I am so thankful I found them. I am on a GLP1 medication that has allowed me to lose 35 lbs in 4 months and I feel amazing. I get so much support and guidance from the team! I highly recommend!"


"I just went for the consult yesterday so I can't say anything about results yet however Jennifer Hruz is AMAZING! She is SO thorough, easy to talk to and I can't say in my almost 40 years of life that I've had a better experience with any doctor. If you have anxiety like I do, do not fret, she is the EASIEST person to talk to! I can't wait to see my results!"


"I cannot praise Jennifer and the staff at VIVA Wellness enough. Everyone there is so understanding and professional. While receiving medical weight loss counseling with Jennifer, I'm proud to say that I have lost eighty pounds. I'm seventy-six years young and so it might have taken me a little longer time, about one year, but Jennifer was always so patient and always there providing guidance and support. Jennifer's personal attention makes me feel like I'm her only client. I've learned so much. Needless to say, I'm looking better, but most importantly, I'm feeling great!! My blood pressure returned to normal, so my doctor discontinued my blood pressure meds. Thank you Jennifer for introducing me to and supporting me in my healthier lifestyle."
