Dear Twinkle
I think you should give your body and the Reductil 15 a bit more than a week to start working. Reductil not only suppresses appetite, but also increases the basic metabolic rate which should both promote weightloss. You also need to use it with an energy-reduced, low-fat diet and exercise on a daily basis to achieve the best results. If you have still not lost any weight after 3 weeks you will have to discuss this with the prescribing dr because he/she may have to adjust your dose or change your medication. Reductil on its own without some input from the patient will not make you lose weight.
