Qnexa is being coined the “Two In One Diet Drug” that can help a woman drop two dress sizes in 12 months.

The diet pill is a combination of two existing drugs, namely Phentermine and Orlistat – more commonly known as Xenical.

Qnexa can also reduce blood pressure and cuts the levels of potentially dangerous blood fats and sugars.

XenicalQnexa seems to be the perfect solution to obesity but there are concerns about the safety of the drug – both Phentermine and Xenical are not without side effect issues and so a combination of the two could spell double the trouble.

Acomplia Diet Pills Side Effects – Slimming Drug Now Banned

Acomplia Rimonabant Diet Pills Side Effects

acomplia diet pills side effectsPrescription only diet pills, Rimonabant – more commonly known as Acomplia, have been removed from the shelves of stockists.

Acomplia was only available via a visit to a GP or doctor and under prescription and on its introduction was seen by many healthcare professionals at the anti obesity drug of the future.

Over the last two years an estimated 100,000 UK dieters have used the weight loss drug but latest evidence suggests that the possible health risks associated with Acomplia outweight its potential benefit.

Side Effects And Health Risks Of Acomplia

We have already reviewed and commented on the potential side effects associated  with Acomplia Rimonabant.

Acomplia it was though can cause a whole host of health problems ranging from the physical symptoms such as nausea, tendonities and stomach cramps – to more serious psychiatric disorders such as panic attacks to memory loss.

It is now thought that Acomplia may have been the cause of several deaths including a possible suicide.

Acomplia is only prescribed to the extremely overweight of dangerously obese. Mid 2008 the NHS gave approval of Acomplia to used as a last resort anti obesity drug.

How Does Acomplia Work

Acomplia Rimonabant is an appetite suppressant that works by creating a feeling a fullness for the dieter so that food is not craved so much. The theory is that if the brain does not crave for food the body will not take on more calories than it needs – so after time, food portions become reduce and the stomach shrinks.

Appetite suppressants are effective but some of the pharmaceutical drug class diet pills are incredibly strong and can cause more problems than they solve. More about Appetite Suppressants

The dilimma now for the manufacturers of Acomplia – French firm Sanofi-Aventis is what to do in the interim. Bad press will obviously harm profits. A possible solution could be to produce a lower strength version of Rimonabant and possible market under a different brand.

Prescription Diet Drugs

Of the available prescription diet pills, Acomplia has approximately one tenth of the UK market. The most popular and widely prescribed diet pill is Orlistat – brand name Xenical. Xenical is not an appetite suppressant, Xenical works by blocking fat from being absorbed by the body. More about Xenical

Xenical is relatively side effect free – there are one or two side effects that are well documented but these are a minor irritation that anything sinister.

It is interesting to note that Xenical has almost a decade of working clinical trials wheras Acomplia has just the two.

Like Acomplia, Xenical is not available to purchase and only prescribed to the overweight. Typically if your BMI (Body Mass Index) is in the mid 30’s you are considered overweight bordering on obese. Check your BMI

Maybe if drug companies were not in such as rush to get their products out into the market the consumer and the drug company would benefit more in the long term.
