Acomplia (rimonabant) is an anti-obesity drug from the group of therapeutic agents called Cannabinoid-1 Receptor Blockers (CB1). Excessive weight is not only bad for the way you look, it can also affect your health. Scientists and doctors now believe a holistic approach to the problem should be applied, which would involve not only helping the patients to lose weight but also improving a wide array of cardiometabolic risk factors, including high blood sugar levels and abnormal cholesterol levels - all by using just one medicine.
The effects of Acomplia are based on blocking CB1 receptors in the brain. As the result the patient's craving for food is significantly reduced and it is easier to go without large amounts of food. Acomplia should be combined with a very healthy diet. In fact, every patient planning on taking Acomplia must first talk to their health care provider to get recommendations on the style of life that will make the treatment more efficient. Do not share your medicine with other patients, even if you think their symptoms are exactly the same. Giving Acomplia to a person that has not been examined by a qualified professional may cause serious health consequences.
