Slimex is used to treat very overweight (obese) patients who have not been able to lose weight using a low calorie diet and exercise.
Your ideal weight may not be achieved even with Slimex . For the best results Slimex should be used in combination with a calorie controlled diet and a regular exercise routine. The intent of Slimex is to assist with moderate weight loss over 6 months (5-10%) - 9 months for diabetics - when used with a diet and exercise programme. This is in accordance with modern weight-loss practice, which emphasises that moderate weight loss achieves significant health improvement. Losing even modest amounts of weight (5-10% of your initial weight) and keeping it off has been found to reduce risks for diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Set yourself realistic goals for weight loss and maintenance.
For best results, Slimex should be used together with a low fat diet and moderate exercise supervised by your doctor. If this is followed, you should notice some weight loss by the end of the first month of treatment. If you have not lost at least 2kg in the first four weeks of treatment, speak to your doctor.
Slimex does not work in the same way as traditional appetite suppressants. It works by altering the level of two chemicals in the brain, serotonin and noradrenaline, which help regulate energy intake and output.
The result is (1) you will not need to eat as much during your meals before you feel full, and (2) Slimex stops your metabolic rate from falling as much as it normally would. Metabolic rate normally falls during weight loss as you reduce your intake of food, making it harder to keep losing weight. However, there will still be fluctuations in your weight loss as the body uses many mechanisms to maintain your weight. This could be a reason some people do not achieve any benefit from Slimex .
Slimex is NOT meant to result in "overnight" weight-loss. A healthy rate of weight-loss is Â½ to 1kg per week. Even though some people notice an effect on the size of their meals within a few days, it can take longer for others. Weight loss normally starts within 2 weeks and continues for up to 6 months (although in some people eg diabetics, it could take longer). Once your weight plateaus, continue to take Slimex , which will help sustain weight loss.
Continuing to take Slimex will help you maintain this new lower weight and assist to prevent weight being regained.
Slimex is not addictive or habit forming and has been approved for long-term use in weight management.
Slimex is only available with a doctor's prescription.
