Meridia is the brand name of a diet pill containing Sibutramine ingredient.
It works on the appetite to fool the user into thinking they are full after little food.
Until 2010 it was widely prescribed to the dieters’ population, but due to many health risks and accidents reported with this diet pill, all Sibutramine-based pills were removed from the market in many countries around the world (USA, UK, Canada, Australia included).
How does Meridia work?
Meridia makes your brain release huge amounts of neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine. Low levels of these neurotransmitters have been linked to overeating and unnecessary snacking.
Meridia is available in 10 mg of 15 mg capsules and the doctor will decide which one is best for the patient. Although some people have claimed to feel more energized while taking the pill, this is not yet proven.
This is one diet supplement that is only available to those who have a BMI in the thirties or by those who have a BMI of 27 but who have underlying health risks like high blood pressure or diabetes.
Excluded users are:
- Anyone who has to take MAO inhibitors
- Those who dabble with herbal medicine, particularly St. John’s Wort
- Those who use other diet aids
- Those on anti depressants
- Have high blood pressure
- Have or have had eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia
Meridia side effects
There are some side effects which are not particularly dangerous but they can be controlled with over the counter medications. Having said that, there are a number of serious side effects which are:
- rapid heart beat
- rigid muscles
- vomiting and/or sweating
- allergic reactions
Anyone experiencing these should seek medical attention immediately without fail. Also, since these can only be prescribed by a doctor, do not take them from friends and family who have been prescribed them.
