Sibutramin or Meridia helps the seriously overweight shed pounds and keep them off. It is especially recommended for those who in addition to being overweight have other health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. It is used in conjunction with a low-calorie diet. Sibutramin works by boosting levels of certain chemical messengers in the nervoussystem, including serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.
If Sibutramin gives you an allergic reaction, you won’t be able to use it. You should also avoid Sibutramin (and certainly don”t need it) if you suffer from the compulsive dieting disorder known as anorexia nervosa. Do not combine Sibutramin with other drugs used to suppress appetite, and do not use it within 2 weeks of taking a drug classified as an MAO inhibitor, including the antidepressant medications Marplan, Nardil, and Parnate.
