What is Mysimba?


Mysimba is a combination of two medicines (Bupropion and Naltrexone) which has been developed to help people who want to lose weight, and who are overweight (with a Body Mass Index of 27 or more) and have additional health risk factors. There are many reasons why people may experience weight gain other than hunger such as difficulty in managing portion size and stress or anxiety related eating. All of which may help trigger unwanted weight gain. The medicines in Mysimba work to help the brain regulate your appetite and change the feelings you may have when eating food.

Mysimba is a type of weight loss aid medication and should only be taken under doctor’s recommendations, and when lifestyle changes have not worked.

How does Mysimba help with weight loss?


In some patients, obesity is often related to the brain, many people eat when they’re stressed or have excessive hunger and food cravings. Mysimba contains two active ingredients, naltrexone hydrochloride and bupropion hydrochloride, which work on the areas of the brain which control food intake and energy expenditure. These ingredients work together to change how you feel about food and appetite. Reducing your appetite results in less food intake which ultimately leads to weight loss, especially with a low calorie diet and regular exercise. Mysimba helps to control your food cravings and makes you feel less hungry so you can reduce your calorie intake and reduce your weight.




Who is Mysimba suitable for?


If you have been medically diagnosed as obese and you are over 18 years of age, Mysimba may be a suitable solution for you providing you have tried other methods such as exercising and having a low calorie diet but to no avail. If dieting alone has not proved successful for you, Mysimba can assist you in losing extra pounds to bring you to a healthy weight. However, you should always consult a doctor before taking this medicine to ensure your suitability.
