What is Reductil?
Reductil is a prescription only diet supplement that is available for those who suffer from obesity. Reductil works by making you feel fuller faster so that in the end, you eat less, absorb fewer calories, and lose weight faster.
It’s important to remember that you should use Reductil in combination with a weight loss program that includes a proper diet and regular exercise. Reductil can be taken with or without food but it is recommended that Reductil is taken in the morning.
Reductil – not for everyone!
Reductil is only available by prescription so that your doctor may decide if Reductil may be right for you. There is a long list of people who should not take Reductil including those with uncontrolled high blood pressure; kidney problems; liver problems; glaucoma; those who are obese due to a medical condition; anyone over the age of 65; and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Although this is an extensive list of pre-existing conditions, it definitely does not include all of the conditions that could interfere with Reductil and so consultation with a doctor who knows your medical history is extremely important.

Word of warning
If you are considering taking Reductil to help you control your weight, it’s important to know that it should only be taken for 12 weeks and that if you begin taking the drug and you and your doctor don’t notice a significant weight loss during that time, he or she will probably take you off Reductil and have you try another weight loss supplement.
There are also different dosages of the drug that can be taken and so your doctor is likely to try those before seeing if something else will work, unless you are experiencing any of the number of negative side effects. When you go off the drug after a year or less, it is unusual for users to feel any withdrawal symptoms although the appetite levels may rise again.
Do we recommend Reductil to you?
As you can see from the list of side effects above, there are so many possible side effects of Reductil, that we just cannot recommend Reductil to you. Our main concern with any diet pill is its safety, and Reductil is certainly not a safe diet pill.
