Sibutramine hydrochloride monohydrate (Meridia®) is a weight loss medication that is available by prescription. Besides helping people lose weight, this drug can also help prevent weight regain in people who have already lost weight. It comes in capsule form, is taken once a day, and should be combined with a low-calorie diet. Sibutramine does not suppress appetite, but rather creates a sense of fullness. Potential side effects of this medication include dry mouth, constipation, and insomnia.
