Rimonabant can be prescribed by your health care provider to get rid of excessive weight if you have obesity. This drug can help you reduce your food cravings and eat less food without any particular effort. However, eating less is not enough to burn the fat accumulated - so you will also be required to keep to a certain diet and make sure you follow a daily exercise routine recommended by your doctor. Only if you combine all those factors will you be able to get the result desired. It's very important that you discuss all the aspects of your treatment with your doctor. Please tell or health care provider if you have or used to have any medical conditions that may interfere with the success of the treatment. Tell your doctor if you have liver problems, impaired kidney function or a history of epilepsy. It's quite normal to get some side effects, especially at the beginning of the treatment. However, if the side effects you originally developed (for example, anxiety, irritability, nausea, restlessness, depression, dry mouth, irritability, sleep problems, anorexia, dizziness, nausea, or vomiting) do not go away for a long time and get bothersome - make sure you report them to your health care provider to see if any changes need to be made to your treatment schedule.
