New Weight Loss Drugs
Nothing in the world can sustain the process of evolution. A particular medical treatment too needs evolution. So a constant research needs to be done on formulating new drugs with new approaches so as to treat those diseases. Obesity too is one such research area. In this page Online Phentermine gives a viewer the opportunity to get to know those drugs which are newly launched.
Alli is a new weight loss drug pill developed by GlaxoSmithKline and is waiting for approval from FDA for sale as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug. It is half the dose of normal prescription drug Xenical. The pill acts by blocking one fourth of the fats consumed. The blocked fat is removed via excrete which are oily during the duration of taking the drug.
The craze for Alli is due to the possibility of sale of the drug as an OTC drug. It would remove the need of going to a doctor for consultation. But as with other weight loss diet pills Alli too should be taken in conjunction with physical activities and a diet control program. It would be useless if the intake of the pill is not supported by these activities.
Developed by the third largest pharmaceutical firm in the world, Sanofi-Aventis Acomplia (Rimonabant), a weight loss drug has got approval from EMEA (European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products) for sale in the UK and the EU. But it is awaiting FDA approval for sale in the US. It is rumoured that when Acomplia (Rimonabant) gets approval for sale in the US it would be named as Zimulti.
The clinical trials of Acomplia showed at least 10% decrease in weight for 40% of the persons included in the trial. So, the results are termed as positive. Acomplia weight loss drug decreases the appetite of a person which makes way for low intake of food which further results to weight loss. The pill is to be used only with consultation of a doctor. Mild side effects like nausea, stomach disorder, anxiety or irritability may occur for the first few days. In case of prolonged or severe side effects a consultation with the doctor is necessary.
