Sibutramine (usually in the form of the hydrochloride monohydrate salt) is an oral appetite suppressant - anorexiant.


Sibutramine is used in combination with a reduced calorie diet and  exercise to help people who are overweight lose weight and maintain  their weight loss. Sibutramine is in a class of medications called  appetite suppressants. It works by acting on appetite control centers in  the brain to decrease appetite because of its impact on the neurotransmitter serotonin.  When we eat, our bodies release serotonin in the brain.  This is why we feel content after eating a large meal.  Experts believe that this feeling of happiness we get from food is a survival mechanism: our bodies reward us for succeeding to get food so we are more likely to eat and survive.  Of course, this “rewards system” is not really necessary in a world where we just grab food from a supermarket instead of trekking miles to hunt and gather.


Hunger versus Appetite

A lot of people mistakenly say that Sibutramine stops hunger.  This is not exactly true: Sibutramine stops appetite, not hunger.  Hunger is the physical need for food whereas appetite is a psychological need or desire for food.  The reason that most of us are overweight is because we have a psychological urge to eat which leads us to take in much more than our bodies really need.  You shouldn’t feel too bad if you have succumb to this.  There actually is a very psychological component to food.  When you eat certain foods (particularly those starchy foods), it causes serotonin levels in your brain to increase so you feel happy.


Occasional comfort eating can be very harmful for you in the long run because it distorts your physical sense of hunger. When you overeat, your stomach gets stretched out.  Then, when you eat because you actually are hungry, it will take much longer before you start to feel full.  This results in overeating which in turn stretches out your stomach more and results in more overeating.

Sibutramine belongs to a class of drugs called serotonin and noadrenaline reuptake inhibitors, or SNRIs.  SNRI drugs are most commonly used for treating depression and other mood disorders.  However, Sibutramine is distinct because it helps block appetite while increasing energy expenditure in the body.  If you are eating less and burning more calories, then weight loss becomes a lot easier with Sibutramine.



Sibutramine is usually taken once daily.

Sibutramine can be taken with or without food.

You should lose at least 1.5 kg pounds during the first 4 weeks of taking sibutramine and eating a low calorie diet.

Your blood pressure and pulse will need to be checked often.

Sibutramine should not be taken for longer than 2 years.

Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light. Do not share sibutramine with another person. Keep the medication in a place where others cannot get to it.


Know Your Risk

People with the following conditions should not take Sibutramine:

  • Are over the age of 65 or under 18
  • Mood or eating disorders
  • High blood pressure
  • Overactive thyroid
  • Seizures
  • Glaucoma
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia


If your take Sibutramine, you should make sure that you understand which side effects are normal and which side effects may be serious.  The side effects of Sibutramine which merit immediate medical attention include:

  • Seizure
  • Urinary difficulties
  • Becoming bruised or bleeding easily
  • Jaundice
  • Pain in chest or other signs of heart attack
  • Inflammation of skin
  • Trouble breathing
  • Dark colored stools


Sibutramine is notorious for its ability to obliterate your appetite so you eat less and can lose weight easier.  But a major problem with all diet pills, including Sibutramine, is that people just gain the weight right back after they stop taking the diet pills.  If you want to lose weight and actually keep it off, then you first must understand a bit about hunger so you can adjust your eating habits.


Since you are eating less because of Sibutramine, your stomach should start reducing in size.  This takes time so don’t expect to feel full after a few bites of food right away.   If you aren’t following a healthy eating habits while taking Sibutramine, then you aren’t going to get the best results.  While taking Sibutramine, you should only eat small meals, even if frequently.  By eating small meals, your stomach will never get very stretched out.  After several months of just small meals, you will have a much smaller stomach size.


If you have not allowed yourself to overeat while taking Sibutramine, then your stomach should be much smaller by the time you are ready to stop taking Sibutramine.  You will notice that you feel full much faster than before.  Thus, you are less likely to overeat and will keep that lost weight off!
