Reducil and weight loss

User Profile
As I have put on 3st since taking Pregabalin, my doctor has presribed Reductil and I have just started to take it today. What I would like to know is, if I lose weight successfully, how long can I take reductil. I am sure I read somewhere on the web that you can only take reductil for one year if that is the case and you put the weight back on after stopping taking reductil , do you think the doctor would re prescribe this drug. for longer than one year?

Reducil mustn’t be taken for more than a year. If it doesn’t cause a weight decrease in 3 months it can be discontinued even earlier. It can also be discontinued if it causes the blood pressure to rise too much. Taking Reducil should also be accompanied by proper diet and physical activity.

You may want to consult an endocrinologist about this.
