Meridia Diet Pill Information

In October 2010, Meridia was withdrawn from the market in the United States.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 medication that healthcare providers may prescribe to help people lose weight. Although most people tolerate this medication well, Meridia is not suitable for everyone. Therefore, make sure to review the prescribing information on Meridia diet pills before starting treatment with this medication.
For example, you may not be able to take Meridia if you have certain medical conditions, such as glaucoma, epilepsy, or heart problems. Also, you may not be able to safely use Meridia if you are currently taking certain medications (including some vitamins, herbal supplements, and non-prescription medications).
Although most people do not experience problems with these diet pills, Meridia can cause side effects. Some of the common side effects include headaches, constipation, and insomnia. This weight loss medication comes in capsule form and is typically taken once a day.
