I have not seen this ad but think it may be for one of the appetite suppressants produced by Abbot such as Reductil. This product is used together with an energy-reduced diet and is usually prescribed for patients with obesity (BMI exceeding 27 or 30). If you only need to lose a few kg, you can achieve this with a low-energy diet and regular exercise. Ask your gp about this ad and the product, as it can only be prescribed by a medical dr.
