Mysimba is a weight loss medicine which contains the active ingredients naltrexone and bupropion. When combined with a low-calorie diet and physical exercise.
According to the NHS, approximately 29% of adults in England are obese and more than a third of the population is overweight.
Classification of whether a person is overweight or obese is defined by their body mass index (BMI).
A BMI of 25 - 30 is overweight, while a BMI greater than 30 is obese.
You can work out your BMI using the NHS Online BMI Calculator.
The exact mechanism of how Mysimba works is not fully understood. According to European Medicine Agency it is believed that the active substances naltrexone and bupropion affect parts of the brain responsible for controlling food intake, energy balance, and the pleasure associated with eating.
Studies have suggested that when Mysimba is taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise, it can result in a reduction of body weight by at least 5% over a period of 28 to 56 weeks.
Diet and exercise play crucial roles in weight loss efforts. It is essential to maintain a balanced, nutritious diet that is low in saturated fat. Engaging in physical activities such as sports, running, or dancing can greatly contribute to achieving weight loss goals.
