  • Hello Adam, You are right, i also agree with you. I also have read about this anti obesity medicine A-complia. A-COMPLIA ( active ingredient in A-complia is rimonabant) approved in the European Union as an adjunct to diet and exercise for the treatment of obese patients. Here i have provided some more information about A-complia.Method of administration In adults, the recommended dosage is one 20 mg tablet daily to be taken in the morning before breakfast. The treatment should be introduced with a mildly reduced calorie diet. The safety and efficacy of rimonabant have not been evaluated beyond 2 years.Side Effects of Acomplia Nausea, vomitting and other gastrointestinal disorders were relatively common side effects of taking Acomplia. Disorders of the nervous system includes: headaches, faintness and feeling dizzy. Psychiatric disorders Including: mood swings, anxiety, depression, irritability, sleep disorders and other similar disorders. If you already have a history of mental health disorders, it would be highly adviseable to mention this to your doctor before obtaining Acomplia.Warnings and precautions ACOMPLIA should be used with caution in patients over 75 years of age.ACOMPLIA should be used with caution in patients with moderate hepatic impairment. ACOMPLIA should not be used in patients with severe hepatic impairment. No dosage adjustment is required for patients with mild and moderate renal impairment. ACOMPLIA should not be used in patients with severe renal impairment. ACOMPLIA is not recommended for use in children below age 18 due to a lack of data on efficacy and safety. Rimonabant should be used with caution in combination with potent CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g. ketoconazole, itraconazole, ritonavir, telithromycin, clarithromycin, nefazodone) Since ACOMPLIA tablets contain lactose, patients with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, the Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption, should not take ACOMPLIA.ACOMPLIA Overdose Experience with rimonabant in overdosage is limited. In a single-dose tolerability study, doses up to 300 mg were administered to a limited number of subjects with only minor symptoms reported. These included headache, euphoria, fatigue and insomnia. The pharmacokinetic profile demonstrates that a plateau in exposures is reached at 180 mg. There is no specific antidote for rimonabant; therefore, appropriate supportive measures should be initiated in case of overdose. Treatment should consist of the general measures employed in the management of overdoses, such as keeping airways unobstructed, monitoring cardiovascular function and general symptomatic and supportive measures. Rimonabant may also be found to be effective in assisting some smokers to quit smoking. Sanofi-Aventis is currently conducting studies to determine the possible value of rimonabant in smoking-cessation therapy.

  • Xenical is available in Thailand although very expensive. Check with your local drug store. You are best advised to seek the advice of a medical professional before taking this or any other type of weight loss drug.
