Reductil 15 mg


What is Reductil? 

Reductil is a prescription medicine used to treat overweight people. Specifically when they have health difficulties such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and so on. Sibutramine hydrochloride is the active component. It belongs to a class of drugs known as serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors. Reductil, when taken with a low-fat, calorie-controlled diet and regular exercise, helps you feel full faster with less food, assisting you in reaching your weight loss goals. It is illegal and dangerous to use this Schedule IV prohibited substance without a prescription. Before a doctor will prescribe to buy Reductil online, you must have previously attempted to reduce weight by changing your diet and increasing your physical activity.

How does Reductil work?

Reductil works by boosting the levels of two brain chemicals known as serotonin and noradrenaline, which regulate hunger. These molecules provide signals that notify a person when they are hungry and should eat, or when they are full and should stop eating. Sibutramine increases the molecules in the body that generate a feeling of fullness or satiety, which can help people eat less. Reductil can also boost an individual’s resting metabolic rate. It is usual for the resting metabolic rate to decrease during weight loss as the amount of food ingested decreases, which has a detrimental impact on weight loss. This can be avoided by using Reductil.

Reductil dose information

Reductil is normally prescribed for a period of at least six months and up to two years. A doctor would often prescribe one Reductil 10 mg pill daily, which can be taken with or without food. A calorie and fat-controlled diet, as well as exercise, will be prescribed by the doctor. Reductil is ineffective for weight loss unless calorie consumption is reduced and physical activity is increased. If an individual does not lose weight after following a low-calorie diet, exercising, and taking 10 mg of Reductil daily for 4-6 weeks, the doctor may increase the dose to Reductil 15 mg daily.

Instead, drink plenty of water and swallow the entire tablet. Do not raise the dose or take it for longer than prescribed to avoid major adverse effects.
