You often advise this drug in your answers about weight loss, and I have heard many controversial statements about it. I would like to try it (I am 26 years old, 168 cm tall and weigh about 76 kg), but I am planning to get pregnant soon. Are there any contraindications for this? Do I have to wait after taking these tablets? Which doctor should I go to to prescribe these pills for me?

If you are planning a pregnancy, I advise you not to use Meridia. In fact, there is no need to "wait" after using it, but is it possible to plan a pregnancy with such precision? (I take the last pill today, and get pregnant tomorrow). I recommend the drug, but not in all cases. It is not a substitute for a diet or exercise. Besides, it is not suitable for everyone. Personally, I have had a lot of success with my patients using Meridia. As long as it is not administered "blind", without control tests and a well-collected interview from the patient. In principle, a doctor of any speci alty can prescribe Meridia.
