Cialis is an appetite suppressant that can be taken if you need to lose a lot of your weight. It is most often recommended for patients diagnosed with obesity. Patients with BMI over 27 are likely to benefit for taking rimonabant the most, as this drug works to reduce food cravings making it possible even for very obese people to start losing weight. While for people with normal body mass losing weight can be somewhat of a hobby, for obese people this is a very serious treatment that involves taking rimonabant, exercising regularly and eating healthily. During the first year of the treatment, about a third of all people taking rimonabant demonstrate weight loss of 20-25 pounds, and most importantly - they can maintain that result and do not gain the weigh lost back. Rimonabant is not supposed to be combined with the following medications: HIV medications, antibiotics, antidiabetes medications, medicines for weight loss, drugs for normal blood lipid levels, antidepressants, rifampicin, epilepsy drugs, St. John's wort, depression medications, and antifungals, as interactions have been reported. To avoid interactions and make sure your treatment is efficient you will need to talk to your doctor before starting to take any new drugs and combining them with rimonabant.
