Appetite Suppressants (Sympathomimetics) for Obesity
How It Works
Sympathomimetic appetite suppressants make you feel less hungry. They work by changing levels of brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that affect mood and appetite. This medicine tends to work for only a few weeks, so it is not recommended for long–term use. That is why it is important to learn healthy habits for eating and getting more active.
