Our expert says:
According to my copy of MIMS (which lists the medications available in SA), Ciplatrim is classified as a Schedule 5 drug, which means that it can only be prescribed by a medical doctor. I would, therefore, recommend that you consult your family doctor and discuss the use of Ciplatrim with him/her. Also make sure that the slimming diet you use is balanced and not so low in energy that it constantly makes you hungry, irritable and tired. Starvation diets are not healthy and usually do not produce satisfactory results.
