Experiência clínica com o uso conjunto de sibutramina e orlistat em pacientes obesos

The efficacy and tolerability of the association of sibutramine (10mg) and orlistat (120mg t.i.d.) in the treatment of obesity were evaluated in a 3-month short-term open study. The study involved 114 overweight or obese non-diabetic patients searching for obesity treatment in a private clinic. After two months, the mean weight loss was 7.1kg (- 6.5%) and after three months, the mean weight loss was 8.9kg (- 8.2%). The association of sibutramine and orlistat seems to be a useful option for the treatment of obesity.
