My family DR is starting to give out shots for weight loss......

They are 20.00 a week. The name is Vitachrom (sp?) .. Have you tried it or something like it ? I can't find any information on the internet about the shot.

  • Are any of you in the St. Louis region? If so there is a clinic there called DC Stop Smoking Center. They have a weight loss program as well at about the same price without needles! They use Auricular Therapy. Here is a link.

  • A little looking brought up this:  http://www.drbdiet.com/as/menu/mb:Diet


    Dr. Bernstein is the orignator of the Vitachrome diet plan.  It's just a vitamin shot.  Just getting the shot alone won't do anything.  Seems there's a whole diet plan you have to follow along with the shot...and one site I found estimates $300-400 a month to do the whole thing.

  • That sounds interesting i tried something like that it worked a little but expensive and hurts like heck.  Did not enjoy that part of it.  doing something different at least that does not hurt.

  • depends what kind of shots! I would strongly advise against it if it's HGH shots. Just cause my son takes these for a pituatary condition and the side effects are numerous including a few horrible ones.
