When can Reductil (Sibutramine) be prescribed to help weight loss (obesity)?


Reductil is licensed as adjunctive therapy within a weight management programme aimed to promote weight loss. It is a prescription only medicine which can be prescribed for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of greater than 30 kg/m 2 or for overweight patients with a body mass index (BMI) of greater than 27 kg/m 2 who also have other risk factors such as type 2 diabetes or dyslipidaemia (a disturbance in the levels of fat (lipids) in the blood).

Reductil may only be prescribed to patients who have tried to lose weight by diet and exercise for 3 months or more and have been unsuccessful in losing at least 5% of their body weight. It can only be used under the ongoing care of a doctor experienced in the treatment of obesity.

Adult obesity rates have almost quadrupled in the last 25 years. Now over 20% of Britons are obese and three-quarters are classed as overweight.

What are the causes of obesity?


In most otherwise healthy people, the causes of being obese or overweight are simple: eating too many calories or taking too little exercise, or more than likely a combination of both!

The plethora of fad diets have convinced many people that eating low fat or low carbohydrate foods can provide a short cut to losing weight.

Your body has the capability to convert fat to carbohydrates and carbohydrates to fat depending on the quantity of each it has available to it, so manipulating the amount taken in the diet in an attempt to lose weight is largely useless. In otherwise healthy people, it is equally untrue that some people have a "slow metabolism" and so are more likely to put on weight.

The simple fact is that if you regularly consume more calories than you burn off, you will put on weight. The good news is that if you burn off more calories than you consume on a regular basis you WILL lose weight. The only guaranteed way to lose weight is therefore to eat less, do more and preferably do both.

Why does weight loss (obesity) matter?


Despite being a very common condition being obese or overweight can have serious effects. Obesity can lead to extremely serious health problems, including arthritis, heart disease and diabetes. Because of this, in England , over 30,000 deaths a year are caused by obesity. It has been estimated that obesity costs the NHS £500 million a year. The overall cost to the country is thought to be over £7 billion every year.

Treatment of obesity or the promotion of weight loss with Reductil (Sibutramine)


As discussed above the best way to guarantee weight loss is to consume fewer calories and take more exercise. In addition to these doctors can prescribe Reductil, which has been shown to assist in weight loss.

How does Reductil (Sibutramine) work?


Reductil operates by its active metabolites inhibiting the reuptake of noradrenalin serotonin and to a lesser extent dopamine.

This action enhances "satiety" or the feeling of being full, and this reduces food intake. In addition Reductil also has a "thermogenic" effect by which it increases the level of calories burnt while at rest, during a weight loss programme.

Reductil comes as hard capsules which are swallowed.
