Meridia Diet Supplement

In October 2010, Meridia was withdrawn from the market in the United States.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 prescription weight loss medication approved for use in combination with a low-calorie diet.
 
As a prescription diet supplement, Meridia works by helping you to feel full more quickly. It acts in the brain, where it increases the levels of certain brain chemicals (including serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine) in specific areas of the brain.
 
Meridia is only approved for adults (age 16 and older), and is typically taken once a day. Although most people tolerate Meridia well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment with these supplements, warnings and precautions should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider.
 
For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and non-prescription medicines).
