Written by Anna Henningsgaard

Followingrepparttar recall of Fen-Phen and Redux in 1999 (two diet drugs that cause heart valve diseases) Meridia was released. Meridia is a diet drug similar torepparttar 149570 ones that were recalled. Likerepparttar 149571 recalled drugs, it releases serotonin intorepparttar 149572 brain to trickrepparttar 149573 patient’s body into feeling full and choosing to eat less. These drugs do not so much remove weight fromrepparttar 149574 body as they do encourage and facilitate a lifestyle involving lower caloric intake.

Meridia is different fromrepparttar 149575 older drugs, however, because its interaction withrepparttar 149576 brain is more localized. While Fen-Phen released serotonin intorepparttar 149577 bloodstream where it flooded and damagedrepparttar 149578 heart, Meridia acts only on localized areas ofrepparttar 149579 brain whererepparttar 149580 serotonin chemical is needed. People taking Meridia or considering Meridia should be aware that Meridia is part of a healthy lifestyle choice, not merely an easy road to diet street.

More serious side effects could be suffered by patients who are taking drugs called monoamine oxidase inhibitors, or MAOI’s. MOAI’s are taken to treat depression, Parkinson’s disease, and other such disorders. Serious, sometimes fatal, reactions can occur if Meridia and monoamine oxidase inhibitors are taken atrepparttar 149581 same time. It is also important not to take Meridian along with other serotonin-regulating drugs. This can cause a rare but serious condition called “serotonin syndrome”, which requires immediate medical attention.
