Meridia 5 mg Capsules

In October 2010, Meridia was withdrawn from the market in the United States. Studies have shown that it increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes. This medication will no longer be available in the United States. People should stop taking it and should ask their healthcare providers about more appropriate weight loss options. 
 
Meridia® (sibutramine hydrochloride monohydrate) is a weight loss medication that is only available with a prescription. Although the recommended starting Meridia dosage is 10 mg once daily, your healthcare provider may decrease your dosage to one 5 mg Meridia capsule daily if you are experiencing bothersome side effects.
 
Other factors that may affect your Meridia dosage include how you respond to the medication, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are taking (including vitamins, supplements, and non-prescription medications). If you have not lost much weight after taking Meridia for four weeks, your healthcare provider may increase the dose to 15 mg once daily.
 
Meridia should be combined with a low-calorie diet. It is not meant to be used without dieting.
