Reductil is a very popular weight loss drug that is especially used by many in the weight loss community in Europe. I have some friends in Europe who had not even heard of Hoodia Gordonii but have heard of Reductil.
I wrote this article because many visitors have demanded some info about it. Read this article if you are even interested in Reductil, and are thinking of getting a prescription for it.
What do I think of Reductil?
What does it contain?
Reductil contains sibutramine, which can be found in many medication for obesity. It works in reducing weight by affecting your nervous system, most notably your neurotransmitters.
For those who don't know, neurotransmitters are responsible for sending messages to nerve cells. Well, consuming reductil prevents 2 neurotransmitters (serotonin and noradranline) from being reuptaked. These 2 neurotransmitters regular our mood, and metabolism.
Reductil increases the amt of these 2 neurotransmitters in our body. The result is that is we feel much more full after eating something, and we ultimately do not eat as much food as we normally do.
Who should take Reductil?
Not everyone should go out and get a prescription for Reductil. Remember, this is a drug and all drugs comes with its share of side effects. Only people with a certain body mass index, and suffering from obesity should take it. If you fit any of these criteria, you certainly have the right to try it:
- Have obesity and have a body mass index of 28+ - Have a body mass index of 30 (and not necessarily be diagnosed with obesity)
If you are prescribed with Reductil, you need to remember that this is not a miracle diet pill that will solve all your weight loss problems. There is absolutely no way, whatsoever that Reductil will result in weight loss if you eat keep eating bad fats, and artificial foods.
Some Things to Keep in Mind:
1. Taking Reductil can disrupt your mental ability. Therefore if you have a job that involves using machines, you should definitely be careful.
2. If you are pregnant, definitely tell your doctor this. There have been cases where women have had premature births due to taking Reductil.
3. Reductil should only be taken in the morning, but definitely read the instructions and guidelines before taking it. Listen to your doctor and see what he has to say as well.
4. If you have high blood pressure, taking Reductil will certainly increase it even more. Tell your doctor this and this many prevent you from being prescribed Reductil. If he allows you to take it, you should have your blood pressure measured every 2 weeks or so for the first few months. High blood pressure is extremely dangerous, and it's just not worth sacrificing your health just to lose weight.
5. Some people experience breathing problems when taking Reductil. If you find yourself having trouble breathing, stop taking this medication.
6. If you have not lost any weight or very little for the first month, you should probably stop taking it forever. Many people who lose weight with Reductil start losing it within the first month.
7. People with the following conditions should inform this doctor as they may be affected by Reductil:
- A history of high blood pressure
- Frequently depressed
- Liver or kidney ailments
- If you are taking medication for blood clotting.
- Have a history of drug addiction
- Have had a stroke in your life
- If you are over 60 years old
Does Reductil Work?
I had a friend who took Reductil for 3 months and did very well with it. She lost 20 lbs in 2 months, and 30 lbs in 3 months. She continued taking it and finally lost a total of 60 lbs. She looked very slim, and differently after a year.
But on the other side, I also know someone who was prescribed Reductil, and lost absolutely no lbs whatsoever. She took Reductil for 2 months, and it did nothing for her.
In the end, different medication work for different people, as all our bodies and genes were engineered uniquely. If you want to take a chance with Reductil, go right ahead. I simply cannot recommend a drug that is so inconsistent.
