Mysimba is an effective weight loss treatment. It should be combined with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise.
Mysimba can only be used by adults who are obese (have a body-mass index of 30 or above), or who are overweight (have a BMI of 27 or above) and have certain weight-related health complications, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Many factors can make losing weight difficult. Mysimba alters the way your body regulates appetite and makes exercise more effective, helping you to achieve a healthy BMI.
Mysimba contains two active ingredients, bupropion and naltrexone. When combined, these drugs interact with the nervous system and work to suppress appetite and increase energy expenditure. This means you feel less hungry on a low-calorie diet, and the food you do eat is burned more efficiently during exercise.
As mentioned, for Mysimba to have the desired effects, diet and exercise is necessary.
You should consult a doctor or health professional for information on how to lead a healthy lifestyle (including exercise and dietary techniques).
You should always follow the advice of your doctor when taking any new medication.
It is important to follow the dosage instructions carefully for Mysimba to have the full effects:
You should have your progress reviewed by your doctor after 16 weeks. If you continue treatment beyond this period, you should have your progress reviewed at least annually.
Treatment should also be stopped if patients have not lost at least 5% of their initial body weight after 16 weeks of treatment.
You should take doses with food. Do not crush, break or split tablets.
