The diet pill, Sibutramine, popularly called the meridia diet pills, was released to help those suffering from obesity reduce their intake of food. Anorexic acts as an appetite suppresser that helps in reducing appetite. The main constituents are sea weed, as they contain a high percentage of fuxotamin. It was created in 1998 by Boots UK Limited, a drug and beauty retailer that is also a pharmaceutical chain. Sibutramine was marketed by the Knolls Pharmaceuticals in the 90s before Abbott’s Labs took over manufacturing as well as marketing in early 2000.
The Meridia Diet pill had good reviews about the rate at which the product works. It was said that 6 out of 10 people rated the product good for use until 2010 when the Food and Drug Administration had data showing contradictions, side effects, as well as interactions with the pill. Abbott Labs was suddenly under pressure to withdraw the drug from the market and stop its production. This move was eventually carried out to reduce its risks on human health.
Some side effects include: increased risks of heart attacks, strokes, constipation, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, increased blood pressure, paresthesia, mental mood changes, seizures, problem urinating, chest pains, bleeding, increased menstrual pains and others. Humans don’t deserve to die because they desire to lose weight. Sibutramine has been banned in so many parts of the world, but are still for sale in others.
