Our expert says:
The package insert for both Reductil and Ciplatrim states that if no significant weightloss is achieved within a period of 3 months, the treatment must be discontinued. This is logical as it is no use taking a medication that can cause potential side-effects unless it is doing its job. In your case taking sibutramine for 12 months has not helped you lose the weight you regained. I don't think that you gained the weight because of getting used to the medication, but that some other factor(s) may have been responsible (e.g. increasing food intake, doing less exercise, hormonal changes, depression, etc). Try and pinpoint what changed when you started to gain weight again and if this factor or these factors can be remedied before you continue taking a medication that is not working for you. It may help to join Weigh-less as suggested in the Ciplatrim launch to help you lose the weight.
