Meridia is a weight loss supplement that works as an appetite suppressant. Meridia should be taken in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet. Weight loss on Meridia can be significant with patients showing 10 lbs weight loss (on average) when just taking 10mg a day over a 12 month period. This increased to 14lbs when the dose was increased 15mg.
Meridia works by inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin, dopamine and norepiniphrine. This then modifies the appetite centres in the brain and suppress appetite. Your body starts build up a resistance to Meridia so it is important to use in conjunction with diet and exercise.
