#Sibutramine is an #inhibitor of the reuptake of #serotonin and #noradrenaline, leading to a decrease in appetite and, therefore, helps to lose weight. However, overuse of Sibutramine may be #dangerous as it increases the risk of #heart disease and should only be used with medical advice, since its side effects can be serious and do not outweigh its weight loss benefit. Some effects that Sibutramine may cause include: Headache; Insomnia; Delirium; High blood pressure and palpitations; Taste and dry mouth changes. In addition, Sibutramine increases the chances of stroke and #infarction.
