Meridia

Meridia is the make name of the popular diet medication sibutramine, and is manufactured by Abbott Laboratories. It is predicted that nine million individuals worldwide have taken it for the treatment of obesity and to encourage weight loss. Meridia influences the release of a brain chemical called Serotonin. Other products seek to fool the brain by making patients feel full through increasing production of Serotonin, on the contrary Meridia attempts an opposite approach, it slows down the body's dissipation of the Serotonin the brain naturally creates. Though after you have stopped taking Meridia, moderate exercise and a healthy diet must be preserved to prevent lost weight from returning.
