Meridia (Sibutramine)

(generic name: Sibutramine)

Meridia and Reductil were developed by Abbott. Both are the same drug: Sibutramine. Meridia® is registered name in the USA, while Reductil® is registered name in Europe. Since the FDA has classified Sibutramine in a Schedule IV controlled substance in the United States, you can not buy Meridia pills in the US. In other hand, you can still buy Reductil in other countries as prescription medication, freely.


The active ingredient in both pills Meridia and Reductil is Sibutramine (it is a generic name of both medications). So whether you buy Meridia or Reductil, you get exactly the same drug - Sibutramine. Although these medicines are same, sometimes the Reductil was cheaper than Meridia.


Meridia is a weight-loss aid recommended for overweight people with an initial body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or for overweight people with a BMI of 27 or higher if they have additional risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. Your doctor can determine your BMI and will decide if you meet these criteria.


Meridia is used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet to help you lose weight and to help keep the lost weight from returning. Sibutramine is thought to work by increasing the activity of certain chemicals, called Norepinephrine and Serotonin, in the brain. This medicine is approved for use only in people who are very overweight.
