Sibutramine Hydrochloride is an oral anorexiant. The term anorexiant means appetite suppressant. Sibutramine Hydrochloride is a drug used to reduce appetite, resulting in lower food consumption and leading to weight loss. It works by controlling chemicals in the brain that lowers down the hunger or food craving.
Sibutramine actively alters brain neurotransmitters, which are released by nerves to communicate between each other.
Sibutramine basicly increases production of dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine which are all different types of neurotransmitters, which actively produces a sense of satiety and decrease in appetite, causing the user to eat less.
Sibutramine can be taken with or without food. It is usually taken once daily. Doctors recommend taking these pills in the morning before breakfast. For obesity treatment, an initial dosage of 10 mg per day is given. If adverse reactions occur, the dose can be reduced to 5 mg per day.
