Our expert says:
I checked the Cipla Website and they produce Ciplatrim in 2 strengths, 10 mg and 15 mg. So your dr may have increased your dose to 2 x 15 mg a day which is probably the maximum permitted amount. However, if you developed palpitations and insomnia then it is VITAL that you contact your dr and discuss these side-effects with her because some patients have developed heart and circulation problems with medications containing sibutramine (the active ingredient in Ciplatrim). It is a good idea to stick to the lower dose, but you still need to check with the prescribing dr about your side-effects.
