Our expert says:
If you are taking sibutramine, which not only suppresses the appetite, but also stimulates your metabolism, eating an energy-reduced diet and exercising, you should have lost some weight in 12 days. However, if your BMI = 22 or less (i.e. your weight is ideal or close to ideal), then your body may resists attempts at additional weightloss. You may also be eating so little, that your body has switched off its weightloss mechanisms. Discuss this problem with the dr who has prescribed the sibutramine, because if it is not working you should stop taking the medication. Possibly the use of Xenical could work better in your case - ask the dr. The only other alternative is to do more aerobic exercise like jogging or skipping for at least 30 min a day to stimulate your metabolism even further, but not while you are taking a medication that can cause circulatory problems as a side-effect.
I hope you start losing weight now.
